How to Buy Designer Handbags For Less!

Calling all designer handbag lovers!

Okay here it is! This is always such a highly requested post! I get asked all the time where to buy designer bags for less than retail and trust me- I know ALLLLL the places! I hate paying full price for a bag- especially when I can get one LIKE NEW for hundreds of dollars less.

Enter my new favorite site: StockX. 

It works a lot like other auction sites where you can buy it now (at the lowest price indicated by the seller) or bid and hope your bid gets accepted. I was lucky enough to be able to get my hands on this Louis Vuitton Pallas clutch- which is another reason why I love buying preloved! This bag has been unavailable on the LV site for months so you can imagine how happy I was when I was able to snag it on StockX.

The bag arrived with no signs of wear at all – that’s because StockX only sells pieces that are in excellent condition. You won’t find a beat up designer bag on their site so there should be no surprises when your bag arrives! They also authenticate all of their products so you don’t have to worry about that aspect at all. When doing a handbag search, you can narrow your search by only searching specific designers or budget, color, handbag style, etc.The other thing is, they sell much more than just handbags so if you are in the market for sneakers or watches, they also have a ton of those listed.
So now you know my little secret! If there’s a bag you have been eyeing, check out StockX first before buying it brand new. OR if there’s a bag you have been trying to get your hands on but can’t (like me with the LV Pallas), check out their site, maybe you will get lucky like I did!

BONUS- If you are a first-time buyer on StockX, you will get $50 off your first purchase!

Also if you have more questions- here is their FAQ page.

One Person Can Make A Difference…

If there is one thing I know, it’s that I love shopping for my kids! I really stocked up on tees and shorts from Nordstrom since I knew we would be coming to warm weather on vacation. I have previously showed both Emmy and Elliott’s tees on my stories because I LOVE them so much and couldn’t wait to share! I am not kidding when I say this sequin tee kept Emmy entertained for SO long! As I mentioned in the previous blog post, I love how the Mini Boden pieces all coordinate together. This skirt mixes and matches with so much! That is something I always look for when shopping for my kids’ clothes. They outgrow everything so fast, I want to get the most bang for my buck!

Okay now onto Elliott’s tee….I can’t even tell you how much I LOVE IT. We always strive to teach our children to care for and to love one another. Shirts like this serve as a reminder to all of us! Sizing wise- I bought it in a 2T which is what he can wear in other tee brands BUT this one runs quite big- as you can see in the pictures. Maybe I will let Emmy borrow it until the summer when hopefully it will fit Elliott!

Kid’s Vacation- Mixing and Coordinating Patterns

vacation

When I was planning outfits for vacation I knew I was going to shop at Nordstrom and I knew I wanted to stock up on Mini Boden pieces. I have said it before but I seriously love everything that brand puts out. They make the cutest pieces in the most adorable, fun, and bright patterns- perfect for vacation! I always seem to find one piece I really love and work the rest around it. I don’t do it intentially but it just always seems to happen that way. I saw this floral top for Emmy and immediately fell in love with the colors and pattern. I knew I would be able to mix and match a bunch of things with it, so to me, that makes a piece very appealing. I know I will get my moneys worth from it. I ended up buying this skirt for a warmer weather option and these leggings for cooler temps.

 

The other thing I love about Mini Boden is how easily I can coordinate pieces between Emmy and Elliott. They carry a lot of the same colors in both boys and girls so I can get pieces that pair well together without being too matchy matchy. You know what I mean?

 

Anyways- we took these pictures while soaking up the sun here in South Florida. It’s so nice to be able to play outside all day long! It is a luxury we definitey do not have in Maine this time of year. It won’t be this warm at home until probably July! So we are taking in all the sun we can get! Ps. I  get a lot of questions about my favorite SPF for the kiddos- I really LOVE Supergoop for them! I have been using it for a couple years now and it goes a great job!

 

What are you eyeing for your kiddos from Nordstrom this spring? The floral Mini Boden top is my favorite Emmy piece, soon I will share my favorite Elliott piece with you, stay tuned!

Purple and Unicorns…

purple and unicorns
Emmy is very particular- much like her Mummy! Two things she LOVES are the color purple and unicorns SO when I stumbled upon this purple rain coat and umbrella set, I was beyond excited! Then I found a matching rolling suitcase and I basically couldn’t order it and get it delivered fast enough! I knew she would absolutely freak when she got it and I was right! Now the issue is, Elliott has been very upset that he doesn’t ALSO have a suitcase so it looks like I will promptly be ordering him the boy versionone one. They have been fighting over using the umbrella and the suitcase NONSTOP. It’s actually gotten to be a problem. In fact, I have had to hide them in closets at times just to avoid another argument. We need to work on sharing in this house…

So if you are on the Nordstrom website and search the brand “Stephen Joseph” you will also see they make matching Nap sacks and pillows and a Rain boots and umbrella set. The prices are all very reasonable too! I am so glad I stumbled upon this new-to-me! For sizing questions- Emmy is wearing a 3T which is her size so the raincoat runs TTS. Her Hunter boots are an 8 which is also her normal shoe size and her Patagonia fuzzy jacket is a 3T as well.
