In honor of Cyber Monday, I bring you my favorite secret. It will be the end and start of your hunt for really good designer shit. I wish I can say that this post was brought to you by The Real Real, but I absolutely did not get paid for this post (not even for trade! But hey, if you're reading... hook a homie up).
Call it a strange addiction or a love interest: I'm a compulsive deal seeker. Discovering The Real Real has put me at the edge of my lust for super sales. And while I've only bought from them a few times, I almost daily comb through the site for those "OMG" pieces. The thrill of finding a cheap gem is beyond addicting - to which I go about texting all my friends and asking them what shoe size they are so they can wear my dream shoes and I can vicariously live through their purchase. It's a win/win.
Today is a win/win for us. Because I fulfilled all my shopping desires and you don't have to overwhelm yourself with the massive inventory. But if you have time, imagine a world where The Row is priced below $100 and isn't mistakenly missing an extra zero at the end. Yes, that tank top is $44 and not $440 (which is still lower than their usual retail price for a silk tank).
The shopping is ridiculous. I've already made "sorry" cards for the friends who I've introduced the site to. Once in a while they have flash sales, as in 50-60% off the already super discounted consignment price. Don't waste your time on Cyber Monday.. shop consignment. And if you're iffy about consignment clothes (their QC is superb), they have a boutique on 50% off NWT items. Ughhh.
Also, I can't knock all the sales. When your email looks like this, I feel like I have to share some filtered, good deals. You know, no lame ones that are only 10% off or free shipping + sample.
- Otte NY - I've always thought they have a very shoppable curation of brands and pieces to discover. I'm so shopped out, otherwise I'd be geeking out over this sale. 40% additional off sale using 'extrapie40'
- NARS Cosmetics - Quality makeup rarely goes on sale, so although this is only 20%, it's better then what you can find throughout the year. If you don't know what you "need" from NARS right now, get the lipstick in VIP Red. Best red ever - which look like a limited color. Might pick myself an extra one!
- ASOS - Because you're still in the mood to comb through more sales. ASOS has good pieces when it's not terribly, overly trendy. Look for elevated basics and knickers. 20% off order using 'blessed'
- Madewell - Good denim, quality pieces. Still pricey (wouldn't you rather get Chanel pants for the price of jeans here?) but I do love their stuff. 25% off order using 'shopatwork'
