In this day and age if you give any kind of a crap about fashion then you’ll understand the importance of having a few key statement items, unless you’re crazy rich in which case it’s about having so many statement items it borders on the obscene.
If however you don’t have the funds required to do this then you’re in the same boat as most of us. That said you’re just being stupid if you’re paying more than half price if you aren’t buying an item directly from the designer.
So with that in mind website like The RealReal are the true MVP’s. Specialising in luxury consignment goods they’re as safe a bet as you’ll get for “guaranteed authenticity” for second-hand goods, and the prices are legit. Throw in that knock off funds don’t go to great places think human trafficking and crime rings, and that it’s illegal to sell a fake item in NZ regardless of how you advertise it, owning a fake isn’t always a palatable option.
So the next time you’re looking to buy your next big statement purchase, don’t be an idiot and pay the full price. Hit up The RealReal, and got your $25 sign up credit and browse their many, many, designers. Givenchy, Hermes, and more await – just take a look at my saved items below.
