Designer Online Shopping: It’s in the Bag

What better way to start the new year than by investing your holiday cash in a designer handbag?   Successfully landing a great deal on one of these hidden jewels online is easy with a few tips and websites.

When shopping for designer items online, remember your ABC’s: authenticity, budget and comparison.  To ensure the products are authentically designer, look for serial numbers and authenticity statements.  Next, set a budget to force yourself to dig deeper for the best deal.  Finally, search for photos of the bag you’re buying and compare details like hardware and stitching to original designer photos to make sure you’re getting the real deal.

One of the best sites I’ve found to score authentic designer and brand-name items for next to nothing is BidHere.com.  This site is unique in that it has a pay-per-bid penny auction structure, but the small fee to bid can pay off big time.  For example, a mint condition Gucci hobo recently sold for just $28 ($149 retail).

New Year, New You!

The start of a new year is a great time to do a wardrobe audit. That doesn’t mean you have to change your entire wardrobe, but knowing what’s inside your closet—and finally throwing out or donating that 10 year old jacket can help make room for something new.

Check for quality and fit. If it’s in good shape, fits, and doesn’t totally look dated then keep it.
If it doesn’t fit or you just don’t love it, consider consignment or donation.   I have listed 10 favorite consignment shops that would be happy to pay for once loved items that are still fashionable and in good shape.
