The RealReal

Much like Poshmark and Mercari, The RealReal is a designer consignment store online. Not only do they authenticate every single item that comes their way, but if you are looking for new clothes with tags, you can still snag those deals. Even though it’s a consignment store, they have many items that are brand new.

When you first get to the site, you have to sign up with an email, but it is entirely worth it because you get an immediate discount on your first purchase. What makes this site so worthy of being added to this list is that they truly have an abundance of high fashion items. And the fact that you can snag designer fashion for up to 90 percent off means that you really won’t break the bank.

I have to admit that this is one of those sites that is addictive to shop at, because once you find the perfect piece at the perfect price, you won’t want to stop. I’ve had to stop myself from dropping entire paychecks here because they really have something for every taste and need.

From constant sales and the addition of new items all the time, The RealReal is one of those sites that has to be bookmarked and looked at on a continuous basis. And remember, because it is a consignment site, things are always changing and what is here today might be gone tomorrow.

Under their Burberry section, you can find the typical scarves that you expect to find, and jackets that will add some flair to your closet. So snag that Burberry wool plaid coat for $245 if you are looking to stay warm in style.

Or maybe you are really looking to spice things up. Then why not grab a pair of Louis Vuitton Metallic snakeskin pumps? At $325, you can be a shiny fashionista in some of the shiniest heels ever.

Honestly, I am addicted to this site and all of the amazing deals. There is something for everyone and if I had my way I would likely buy every handbag that came across my screen.
