The modern shopper knows how to score a deal.  With sites like Haute Look and Gilt Group, Living Social and beyond, try and not find a deal.  They literally have all bases covered.  Why anyone would pay full retail for anything at this point is beyond me.

However, I’ve been an avid vintage shopper for as long as I can remember making my own money, and aside from Ebay and more recently introduced offshoot Etsy, I always felt like the vintage designer options were a little limited, or overpriced, or not well vetted. My complaint list was rather endless.

Until now.  Enter, The Real Real. It is online consignment like you’ve never seen and the savings are as grand as the designer pieces they feature.   The Real Real team is comprised of stylists who literally raid and comb the closets of the world’s most stylish women.  All you have to do is sign up (for free!), and you’re in.  The website is clean and unbelievably easy to navigate. Plus for only five dollars a month, you can gain First Look Access 24 hours before online doors officially open.  They have everything you love at up to 90% off original sticker price. Cha-ching (in a good, wallet saving way!) Check out their designers list.

They add new sales constantly and feature sought after designers like Prada, Chloe, Chanel, and beyond.  They even tailor sales to current trends, color blocking, sheers, and categories like “Garden Party” and Isn’t it Romantic” are perfect for summer.   A “Day Dresses” sale begins June 6th, and an “On Point” sale begins June 5th in light of the return of the classic silhouette pointed toe pump.  These girls really know their stuff and we internet shoppers are reaping the stylish benefits.
