The RealReal is the Real Deal

Do you remember when members only flash sales sites first became popular? We flocked to them in hopes of snagging the most amazing deals at bargain basement prices. Two of my favorite weathered looking Donald J Pliner boots, one short and one tall were bought on Rue la la for about $49/69each(original price $350/425) a few years back and are still wardrobe work horses. Though I’m still mourning the end of the Filenes Basement era, I am happy flash sales sites make for some affordable shopping, and just like “The Basement”, if you look hard enough there are some amazing deals to be had.

The RealReal is my favorite guilty pleasure of late. The premise of the RealReal is pretty cool, they bill themselves as the world’s premier online luxury resale store featuring clothing,accessories, jewelry and art.  You can scoop up Hermes bangles, Chanel bags, Cartier watches, Marni, Missoni, Celine, Chloe- you get the picture, at up to 90% off retail. And here’s the kicker, unlike eBay, the RealReal, examines each piece for authenticity so you know you’re getting the Real Deal! The RealReal also makes consigning incredibly easy.  If you are in one of RealReal’s white glove service areas, your loot will be picked up, alternatively shipping is free. Check out the RealReal website for all of the particulars. 
The RealReal is a legit reason to clean out your closet AND make room for some cool new(or slightly used) stuff!!!!
