Good evening all -
Post-Superbowl and Pre-Valentine’s Day, what do we do? If we can’t hop on a plane to Paris (sigh), then the next best thing is to ride the waves of cyberspace and go shopping.
Herewith, two delightful sites:
1. Vestiaire.com is an international consignment site, with amazing range and versatility. Connect with fashionistas worldwide and dream of wonderful things, such as a pink leather Balenciaga weekend bag for around $600. Sounds like a lot, but compared to an Hermes bag (pretty much any Hermes bag), it’s a bargain. You can chat via email with the fashionistas selling their stuff and peruse all of the prior emails and other items for that person. It’s fun and it’s a collective.
Check it out at:
2. Next up: Rue La La. This site features deeply discounted designer items, mostly on flash sales that last 1-2 days. I saw a great video clip by a fashion blogger who picked up two pairs of Valentino rockstud pumps in lovely colors at about $200/discount per pair (almost enough to pay for that Balenciaga bag.) Items sell out ASAP.
They also have a fun twitter feed.

Prepping for Paris Fashion Week this September.
