When you hear The RealReal, most people’s minds go to the big names: Fendi, Dior, Gucci, and whatever other designer brands whose vintage items are currently trending. However, what I love most about this site are the more moderately priced, modern and everyday items from brands like L’Agence, Anine Bing, Veronica Beard and more. I love to shop sustainably, but I honestly didn’t know it could be so chic until I found The RealReal. It’s probably why it’s become such an obsession for me…! I have about 6 pages of favorited items (most of them are already sold, but I keep them saved for inspiration), and literally check it every single day to see if the items I’m watching go on extra sale. I’ve snagged a couple pairs of Jimmy Choo boots for under $200 each, Diane von Furstenberg pieces for under $100…the discounts and treasures are endless.
While I am a part of their affiliate program (meaning I make a small percentage of income from links I post featuring their items), I’ve purchased everything on my own which is how you know I’m truly bargain hunting. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go find some more dealdeals.
