Memorial Day just passed, which means it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Nope, it’s not Christmas just yet, but as all these end-of-season sales abound, we sure do feel as giddy as a child racing down the stairs to open up all the gifts Old Saint Nick left while we were
recovering from MDW hangovers sleeping.
With sale season upon us, that means it’s time once again for one of the biggest blowouts: the biannual Net-A-Porter sale that’s slashing luxury label price tags up to 50 percent off. Most of those designer digs you’ve had your eye on since last fall are finally a little more affordable–except by a little we mean a little less super expensive.
Let’s face it–the rent is too damn high aaaand it’s due next week, so that $1,495 Charlotte Olympia pineapple shaped purse that’s been marked down to $747 is probs not a reasonable investment.
But any real person with style knows that it isn’t always about the number on the price tag, it’s about how you wear what’s attached to it. And there’s nothing like scoring a look for way, way less. That’s where Zara comes in! The fast-fashion brand is notoriously known for copying the collections we see on the runway each season and producing pieces at a fraction of the cost. While not all of them are blatant rip-offs, others make us wonder how Zara’s managed to avoid being sued into submission to have its big glass doors shut forever. But while you say knockoff, I say ‘tomato.’
So before you peruse the Net-A-Porter sale, see just a few of the splurges and steals we’ve found for you down below, because we know what it’s like to be ballin’ on a budget. Your wallet (and landlord) will thank you.
