Growing up, I didn’t have a ton of resources so I would get creative and turn to consignment stores to buy designer. Every now and then, I would find gems. Other times, not so much but it was the thrill of the hunt that kept me going back for more. #ConfessionsOfAShopaholic
As I grew older and my taste matured (slash my bank account grew bigger because #adult), my consignment store hunts morphed from meh to awesome. Case in point: the time I found rare Ferragamo loafers, my first pair of Chanel earrings (you can never have too much Chanel!), my favorite Hermes twilly, my first Gucci top handle bag and let’s not forget the Louis Vuitton tote (real, with tags) that was tossed out because someone was tired of it and like a famished tiger in the jungle, I pounced on in like one second.
Buying consignment makes me so happy. Sure, it’s easy to buy a new bag in stores but it’s the experience of finding something original, unique, rare, one-of-kind, vintage, gently used by the former Princess of Monaco, that gets me every – single – time I go shopping.
So that’s why I’ve decided to highlight a new consignment store called Snobswap.com where I recently nabbed this brand new Gucci handbag (with tags, guys!) for… like… yeah, an incredible price (still in stores).
It arrived in pristine condition. Fresh leather smell included.
Everything on Snopswap.com is guaranteed to be 100% authentic. So that means all your favorite Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Gucci, Prada, etc. etc. are real.
I paired today’s look with pants from C/MEO collective and a blouse from Ulla Johnson. My heels are Schutz (wear them all the time!) and my precious toucan earrings are from Mercedes Salazar (sold out, but you can find a similar pair here).
So, if like me, you enjoy hunting for special pieces – check out Snopswap.com for more. And be sure to fix yourself a cup of coffee because you’ll be on this website for hours!
P.S.: I’m currently in full-blown SPA MODE today. *Sigh* So far, being home has been wonderful…
