If you have been following me for a while you know I am a big fan of Rent The Runway. You basically rent items vs buying them. I love how fun the service is and the fact that I am constantly rotating items in my closet is such a win-win. You get to pick as many items as you like for a set price and keep them as long or as short as you need. Most of my fun purses, jackets, and accessories are found here.
You know how much I love shopping for vintage. There is nothing better than that find from a vintage boutique, but Etsy has you covered with so many vendors from around the globe ready to ship their treasures as soon as you purchase. Best part you can find some really unique stuff that is affordable while purchasing a high end, timeless item. Etsy is a great way to set your style apart. If you are not into vintage, there are plenty of vendors on Etsy that have an eco-friendly approach to the production of their items.
What better way to satisfy a fashionistas craving than to stock up on timeless items? But not everyone can afford luxury finds at a full price. The Outnet allows you to load up on goodies by brands who make clothing to last. Everything is on sale and selections are fresh and current. I usually wait for the twice a year 70% off sale to stock up on shoes by brands like Dior, Off-White, etc. These are the type of items that will live in your closet for decades.
