In today’s post, I want to share with you the Seven Places I Shop Luxury Fashion for Less, both pre-owned and brand-new luxury goods for less. I’ve been buying pre-own, vintage items for quite some time and I love that I still get to enjoy the craftsmanship and the quality I put my money in.
Read on to find out where my favorite places to shop are!
I have to admit that I love shopping for shoes and bags because they are great accessories that can make your outfits. I used to have too many pairs of shoes back in Thailand, and they were so cheap that I shopped for new shoes almost every day. Now being older and wiser, shopping too much not only can break your bank but it can harm the environment as well. I started shopping less but paid more attention to what I was getting, both the quality and the money spent.
In today’s post, I want to share with you the seven places I Shop Luxury Fashion for Less, both pre-owned and brand-new luxury goods. I’ve been buying pre-own, vintage items for quite some time and I love that I still get to enjoy the craftsmanship and the quality I put my money in.
The weird thing about luxury goods is the second you started to involve yourself with it, and you won’t want to go back to the fast-fashion buys. You can see the difference and the worth of what you paid.
I used to tell my husband that it would be so hard for me to buy a pair of luxury shoes as they were so expensive and that I would have to put them on the ground. It would make me feel bad spending that kind of money for a pair of shoes. Bags are a different story because I can take better care of them, and you can pass them along to your loved ones. But that was an old story because the next thing I know I am thinking about collecting high-end sneakers. I’m a sneaker lover, so I would wear them all the time to maximize the value. Who knew I would be a sneaker collector now!
Enough talking, let’s get into the places where I Shop Luxury Fashion for Less.
I got my first vintage Chanel here, and I love shopping at Vestiaire Collective as you get to buy from the original owner or collectors around the globe. You can see where your desired item is coming from and can track the progress along the way.
The Vestiaire Collective Quality Control team will review the item you’ve ordered so that it perfectly matches the description and pictures in the seller’s ad before shipping out. You can get a refund if the product isn’t as described if the seller listed under a PROFESSIONAL seller. But you won’t be able to refund nor exchange if you bought your item from a PRIVATE seller. In this case, you can re-list your item for sale, but you have to do it within ten days of receiving your delivery.
The downside of shopping here is that you have to pay for authentication fees and shipping.
I never had any problems shopping here, but you have to make sure you read the product description good enough to avoid any hassle.
I love The Real Real as they always have “Pristine” and “Item with Tags” conditions available to purchase. I got a few Pristine condition products from them, and they look new to me. The best part, I paid half price of the retail price. I’m still shocked to this day!
They have 100+ brand authenticators, gemologists, horologists, and art curators. They inspect thousands of items each day, so you can be sure every piece is 100% authentic.
I have been using ThredUp for years, both buying and re-selling my clothes. If you don’t know them, they are an online thrift store where you can buy and sell high- quality secondhand clothes and accessories. They added luxury goods to their store earlier this year if I am right. Sellers will send in their items, and the ThredUp Team will authenticate and verify all designer items listed on their store.
You can find brands like Gucci, Burberry, Chloe, Dior, Fendi, Prada, Coach, Kate Spade New York, and more on their site. Their prices are amazing, and you might be able to find a brand new with tags item from there too.
They have straightforward steps for you to follow if you decide to sell your items. Their check out process is also simple, just like you’re shopping at other online stores.
You can sign up through this link and get $10 to shop for your first order.
Tradesy was one of the first pre-own luxury online stores I have been drooling over for the last five years. Here you can find everything from earrings to wedding gowns and some are pre-own with “like new” or “new with tags” conditions. They have designer bags, clothes, shoes, and jewelry that you can pay for way less than other online stores. Also, you have an option to pay through Affirm, which is always lovely.
Here is $20.00 to spend on your first purchase of $50.00 or more on Tradesy when you sign up via this link.
I recently found Fashionphile on google when searching for a Chanel bag. They are an online fashion resale website where consumers can buy and sell women’s luxury designer used handbags, accessories, and jewelry. What’s also great is that they have several shop locations, in Beverly Hills, San Francisco, New York City and Carlsbad, California.
I love that on their online store; you can reserve the products if you still need some time to decide on purchasing. Within 180 days of your purchase, you can sell it back to them for 70% of what you bought. Pretty smart options that they offer, this way if you like to change things up all the time, you’re sure to be able to sell your products back to Fashionphile.
I found this exact CHANEL Patent CC Vanity Cosmetic in a Very Good condition. This cute vanity case was circulated during 1996-1997. It is crafted of black patent leather, features a stitched CC on the front and a patent top handle. This bag has the same design as the one I’m featuring in this post. If you like my bag, make sure to check it out before someone purchase it! It’s a lot cheaper than what I paid for, so be sure to grab it before it’s gone.
Gilt is an online shopping and lifestyle website based in the United States, launched in 2007. You can shop Top Designer Brands on Gilt and Take Up to 70% Off. They offer new private sales daily. I love that not only you can find beautiful designer items for women; they also offer luxury goods for men and kids as well. I shop here a lot for my husband’s special gifts. Their Home and City offers are amazing as well.
You can get the new collection of luxury designers’ pieces up to 30% cheaper than other retailers as they express ship products from the best Italian stores.
So besides buying the products from Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, and the brand themselves, I always get my products from Italist.
