I’ve spent way too much time online shopping in the past two weeks. In doing some deep research (way too deep!), I realized that I can find a lot of the clothes and bags I want for 70% off or less on online consignment websites. Just this Sunday, I found a Christian Dior blazer I had been lusting after the entire fall season last year. With a retail price of $5000, I thought I would never afford it, but managed to score it in my size on The Real Real for $200. NO JOKE. That’s over 95% off the original price! It’s unbelievable what you can find if you look hard enough. The above are all available for sale online at a fraction of their retail price. A classic black Chanel 2.55 for $2600? AMAZING compared to it’s current retail of $4900. Yesterday, I spotted a Celine top I wanted a couple of years ago that is still very relevant and super chic on eBay for 70% off the original price. Will I buy it? Only time, my paycheck, and “research” will tell.
