You often hear from fashion magazines about the fantastic deals you can find in a designer resale shop. In fact, it is often said that you’ll find clothes and accessories at prices that would make any fashionista scream. From sky-high pumps to unique formal evening dresses, most of these shops are overflowing with limited edition designer clothing that are a steal.
Whether you decide to buy from your neighborhood designer resale store or an online designer consignment website, here is just a brief list of some items you can buy at this type of shop.
- Fabulous dresses for less than $50
These may not sound impressive at first, but if it were a gently-used BCBG, Alexander Wang or Valentino design, then the price might just be enough to make your jaw drop just a little. Remember that these dresses usually sell for thousands of dollars.
- Italian Brands for $100
These aren’t even special discounts. Designer resale allows you to buy chic outfits without having to sell your kidney. Just check their website or their brick-and-mortar store from time-to-time to see if they have something you like. Remember bargain-hunting fashionistas snap up the offers when they see it.
- Purses and Handbags
Sometimes, it’s all about just knowing where to buy the bag. Why spend good money on a designer knock-off when you can get the real deal for even less? Search for online designer consignment stores and check the prices out for yourself. Some of the most sought-after handbag brands are available for all budgets.
- Luxury Gifts for Friends and Family
When your friends are as much into fashion as you are, it’s hard to get them the right gift without it having to cost you an arm and a leg. These shops will help you surprise your loved ones with unique, one-of-a-kind clothes, which they are bound to love.
- Winter coats
If you have been looking for a nice, classy winter coat, then you probably know that a designer one costs a few thousand dollars. The good news is you can find one at these shops for a fraction of the price.
If you are worried about the authenticity of these designer items, know that most consignment businesses don’t tolerate counterfeit items. Take your time and enjoy shopping, knowing that they have already carefully vetted the items in their shop.
