So remember Monday when I went on and on about how I’m all about the little luxuries in life? And how budgets aren’t typically conducive to lavish lifestyles? I hate budgeting and I really hate NOT buying things I love. Literal hate. I don’t use that word often, but under these circumstances, I find it appropriate.
Is all hope lost? Are we all just destined for ‘vegan’ leather and sore soles for the rest of our lives?
Where there is a problem, I love finding a solution. What if I told you that you could buy a pair of Jimmy Choo’s and still pay the rent? SAY WHAT. Yes, friends, it’s possible.
Thanks to high end consignment shops, we can all enjoy life’s little luxuries. EVERYONE GETS A CHANEL BAG (ok, C-money might still cost you a bit of cash, but you get my drift.) The one downside to shopping consignments is that there are SO many stores and so little time to shop at them all. That’s why I love Snobswap.
Snobswap not only collects items from tons of fashionable women, but also the top consignment boutiques in the country. Authenticity is guaranteed (no more googling "how to tell if my LV is legit") and you can even sell your own designer items (and get 85% of the profits - which is a pretty high commission rate!) PLUS It's Julien readers can get $20 off $100 when you use code: ITSJULIENXSNOBSWAP
Now - the purse in this post isn't necessarily designer. Yes, it's originally from SAKS, and yes, I will continue to hunt for my perfect designer bag (here's lookin' at you, Chanel bag of my dreams) but I'm obsessed anyway. It's the perfect little summer clutch and I can't wait to take it on vacation with me this summer!
On Julien: Clutch, Snobswap (use code ITSJULIENXSNOBSWAP for $20 off $100!) Jacket, Loeil Top, Express c/o. Jumpsuit worn as pants, Estiletta c/o. Necklace, Hanuel c/o. Bracelet and vine ring, She's Unique. Circle ring, Elaine B Jewelry. Shoes, J.Crew. Sunnies, Kate Spade (similar.)
