If you love clothes and shopping like I do (let’s face it – you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t ;P), I wanted to share my tips on how to indulge yourself without making your wallet and bank account cry.

Poshmark

Sellers usually write a description and post pictures of the actual item they are selling, so you get a good sense of what it will look like when you receive it. Definitely request measurements (bust, waist, hips, etc.) if they’re not listed.

One of the best features about Poshmark?  You can negotiate prices with the seller.

You can also get an idea of how other shoppers’ experiences have been with a particular Posher. Once shoppers receive their items, they are asked to rate the item and comment on their shopping experience.

TheRealReal

Love luxury items, but on a budget?

TheRealReal is perfect for you.

You can buy luxury items at a fraction of the original retail price. I purchased the gray Escada blazer from TRR, and it’s become a staple piece in my wardrobe.

Thrifting

Need I say anything about the thrill of bargain hunting? I love finding unique pieces or even closet staples at prices as low as $1.98!
