Where to buy: Affordable Designer Items
I must admit that I am totally into online shopping A N D also into cute (vintage) designer items.
If you are not blesses with a shitload of money to spend on the latest designer trends, then I might have some affordable alternatives for you!
So here are my top five online stores for affordable high fashion items…
Fashionette offers designer branded hand bags, shoes and accessoiries.
I ordered my Jimmy Choo Romy flats here, and also a pair of Valentino Rock Stud flats.
What I really love about Fashionette is how fast they ship the items: Every order I have made arrived within 24 hours – so this is the perfect store if you need your new item very fast.
Plus: You can also pay by installments – either by credit card or bank account.
They also offer a special sale every day („Deal mit Stil“) where you get 40% off an selected item.
Vite Envogue offers pre-owned and new designer clothes, shoes, bags and accessoiries.
I bought my neoprene Alexander Wang skirt for about $60 and also a brand new Woolrich Sweater for $50. So very affordable prices and really good quality pieces! Delivery just takes a couple of days, the longest time I have waited for an order to arrive was about three days.
You can find them on eBay as well.
Payment via PayPal, credit card or bank account.
Best Secret is a private shopping club – so for members only.
If you’d like to join, just klick on this link to receive your invitation.
Best Secret sells high fashion brands like Marni, Diane von Furstenberg and Alexander McQueen, but also brands like Birkenstock, Calvin Klein or Dorothy Perkins.
I love to buy my 7 for all mankind jeans here, because they are much cheaper than elsewhere (I think I paid around $45 for a new pair of jeans).
Fast delivery, normally not longer than two to three days – but currently only available within Germany (sorry, my international friends!)
Rebelle is a platform where people like you and I can sell our pre-loved designer items.
Every item will be checked for authenticity before you can sell it – so no worries about fakes, girlfriends!
You can find incredibly expensive collectors items, as well as affordable designer items (Diane von Furstenberg dresses, for example).
International delivery is available.
Seriously girlfriends, never (listen carefully: N E V E R!!) miss their clearance sales!
I once found a pair of Isabel Marant Etoilé leather boots there for just $80!! So I repeat: N E V E R miss their clearance sales…
Anyhow, The Outnet offers shoes, bags, clothes, accessories for up to 65% off. So even if they’re not running a sale, this store will obviously help you to save a lot of money.
I order a lot of shoes there, simply because I love ballet flats and I love them even more when they are on sale. My favorite pick was a pair of brown Tory Burch flats with a leather bow knot. Sooo adorable, and I just paid $80 for those shoes.
You can also save your favorite items on a wish list, but make sure not to wait too long until you decide whether to order or not. Every offer is limited, and most of the stuff is sold out very quickly.
International delivery is available (DHL Express), it only costs you 10 bucks, and you’ll receive your item very quickly.
