It’s National Consignment Day!

October 2nd, 2017

I have been coveting the Stella Mccartney Falabella bag for years. Every time I see it pop up in a fashion editorial, movie or on a chic fashionista walking down the street, a felt a pang of longing. Would it ever be mine?

Finally, I got proactive: If I couldn’t justify spending $1,200 on a handbag (no matter how much I yearned for it), I would go the resale route. After combing through Ebay and several consignment stores and websites, I navigated my way to therealreal.com. And, like a message from a higher level, the bag of my dreams was there. Not only was it in perfect condition, but it was even on sale!

When my Falabella arrived, I ripped open the box and literally tried it on with every outfit I own. Today, it’s my most well-worn accessory, and my constant companion (no offense to my boyfriend or my dog).

On this National Consignment Day, take a moment to treat yourself. Either consign a style staple yourself and earn a little extra money, or find your favorite new addition to your closet.

After all, it’s divine to consign!
