Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could buy designer brands for cheap prices?
The reality of the matter is that you probably won’t find a Chanel bag anywhere for $100. Not an authentic Chanel bag at any rate. And even the knock-off replica Chanel bags will often cost more than $100.
You won’t find authentic designer brands for cheap if by cheap you mean for $100 and under.
Maybe if you’re lucky you might find a pair of sunglasses or a bracelet, a clutch, a pair of sandals and other simple accessories on clearance somewhere. You might even find some items of clothing.
But don’t expect to find a Hermes Birkin bag!
One place where you can look to find designer brands for cheap prices (relatively speaking) is The Real Real.
From therealreal.com – The RealReal is the leader in authenticated luxury consignment. We offer the largest selection of pre-owned and authenticated luxury items including men’s and women’s luxury fashion, fine jewelry & watches and fine art. The RealReal sells pieces from designers such as Chanel, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton; jewelry and watches from Cartier, Rolex, and Van Cleef & Arpels; and blue-chip art from Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Sam Francis and hundreds of others.
The only thing Hermes with a price tag under $100 that we were able to find on The Real Real website was a $98 brown leather Hermès scarf ring.
But Hermes is one of those brands that’s always going to be out of reach for most people. That’s the brand of the $432,000 handbag.
If you’re looking to buy designer brands for cheap prices, you probably shouldn’t go looking for anything Hermes. But if you’re lucky you might find other high end brands that aren’t quite so uber exclusive.
Want cheap designer handbags under $100?
If what you’re looking for are cheap designer handbags, you can find bags under $100 from brands like:
- Kate Spade New York
- Miu Miu
- Marc Jacobs
- Michael Kors
- See by Chloé
- Rebecca Minkoff
But don’t expect to find the most awesome items you’ve ever seen. For under $100 you’ll get more or less outdated styles. And the selection isn’t going to be vast. And as these are pre-owned they won’t look sparkly and new.
Want cheap designer sunglasses under $100?
In the accessories department you might find pre-owned sunglasses from brands like:
- Oliver Peoples
- Marc Jacobs
- Dolce & Gabbana
- Salvatore Ferragamo
- Vera Wang
- Christian Dior
- Miu Miu
You can also find cheap designer shoes under $100. But again, don’t expect to find the hottest pair of designer shoes in that price range. For sure you won’t find high end designer shoes from any 2015 collection. But you might find a few styles that never go out of fashion, like ballerina flats and simple pumps.
Looking for cheap designer dresses under $100?
You can find a lot of cute styles from brands include Moschino, T By Alexander Wang, Diane Von Furstenberg, Iro, Alice + Olivia, Vanessa Bruno, Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, Halston Heritage, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Tibi, Helmut Lang, Prada, Elizabeth and James.
Again, these won’t be from the brands’ latest collections. But many are styles that are never dated.
And you can pay off your purchases over time by taking advantage of the financing offer.
So while you can’t buy brand new high end designer brands for cheap prices, at The Real Real you can get pre-owned designer items that are still in good condition.
So head over to the website and check out what’s available.
