Psst…I have a secret to tell you.

Well. Not so much a secret, more of a must-share-because-I-care kind of thing. As you know, I’m obsessed with all things luxe, from health and beauty to fashion.

So, that’s where Tradesy comes in.

If you’ve never heard of Tradesy.com and you’re into luxury and contemporary designer fashion that’s affordable and eco-friendly like I am, just go ahead and take a second to BRACE YOURSELF.

Guys. They are a game changer if you want high-end designer labels, without the high-end price tags. Let me break it down.

I bought my second hand Chanel Bag from Tradesy

Tradesy is an online resale marketplace for designer fashion with up to 90% off retail prices — AKA like having an all-access pass to your most stylish friends’ closet whenever you want. Shoes? Check. Rare designer bags? Check. Clothing? Tons. Accessories? Obvs. Can I get an amen??

So, what do I love most about Tradesy? They have a super strict authenticity policy, so you’ll get REAL, high-quality designer pieces or your money back. It’s seriously the perfect foray into resale if you’ve ever been hesitant about giving it a try. Trust me, you’ll never turn back (also, they have still-in-store AND new-with-tag looks if that’s more your thing.)

EXHIBIT A: My aqua LIMITED-EDITION lambskin Chanel flap bag that I scored for a fraction of the retail price. One of my favorite #TradesyTreasures yet.  

How gorg is this bag?! It adds the most beautiful pop of color to any outfit and what I love most is that it’s such an unexpected shade to wear with my favorite fall neutrals. I’m obsessed with how it POPPED off of my white pants in this look. New favorite hero handbag, hands down. (And yes, I’ve rocked it while wearing athleisure because Chanel pairs well with e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. Sneakers and Chanel? Living my best life.)

Oh, and ANOTHER thing that I love about Tradesy is that it’s designed for both buyers and sellers. So, if I decide to switch things up with another handbag, I can literally just resell this beauty and use what I earn to buy my new piece. Or, if I want to use my funds for something else, I can always cash out and deposit it right into my bank account.  

But let’s be honest, I’m just going to buy another handbag or a pair of Manolo Blahniks… oops, I just did.
