What girl doesn’t love high fashion? Okay, we’re sure there
are some that don’t, but if we could afford it, we’d probably all be splurging
on high-ticket items like Chanel and Rodarte right now. Unfortunately for most
of us though, our bank accounts don’t exactly look like Dakota Fanning’s…or
Taylor Swift’s either. Here are a few tips to help any girl get the high
fashion designer looks she craves for SERIOUSLY less:
1. Facebook and Twitter:
It may seem like a long shot, but nowadays if you follow your favorite
brands on Twitter or fan them on Facebook you can score great deals. Many
simply offer discount codes, while others run crazy cool contests with the
chance to win thousands of dollars worth of merchandise. You’re already logged
on to these social networks already, so why not?
2. Sample Sales: If
you live in a major city, like New York or Los Angeles, designers often host
sample sales to get rid of excess merchandise. At these, you can find markdowns
up to 80, or even 90%, off designer clothes! And even if you don’t live in a
major city, there are now a host of online sample sale sites (Gilt and Hautelook are two of my favorites) that
cater to people just like you. High-end beauty, fashion and even home goods are
all up for grabs.
3. Vintage Stores: Vintage
stores are a great place to find gently used (or even new), high-end designer clothes
for ridiculously cheap. In my experience, I’ve stumbled upon a brand new
Elizabeth and James top for only $20 and an Alexander Wang dress for just
$100! Be prepared to shop ’til you drop though, because to get the goods, it
takes a whole lot of searching.
4. Shop Around: Discover
a cute top or pair of jeans you absolutely can’t live without? Shop around
online to score the best deals! Oftentimes, you can find pertinent discount
codes or even snag the same top for way less than it was priced at a boutique. Putting
in that little extra effort can really go a long way when it comes to savings.
