If you’ve read past posts you’d know that I have an appreciation for quality and strongly believe in purchasing investment pieces. But what do we do if we long for quality we can’t afford? I personally know what its like to be on a budget, but I find ways to still be able to collect things I will love forever. As a student and living in one of the priciest cities in the country, I have to be very mindful of how I spend my money. One of my favorite ways to invest in pieces I love without blowing my budget is to shop consignment. The great thing about consignment shops is you can always seem to find something vintage and unique.
I have partnered with Vault 33, an online consignment store, to kick start your consignment shopping. They are giving all La Femme Daily readers 10% off your online purchase!!! Just use the promo code WLFJ10 when you check out. What I love most about Vault 33 is that though their product is all classic and vintage, it’s still very fresh and always unique. There is a contemporary feel to what they sell and its so easy to incorporate their pieces into any wardrobe.
Not sure how to shop consignment? My best tip is to always stay true to your personal style and choose pieces you will love forever. If you know that jacket you have your eye on will pair up amazingly with just about every outfit in your wardrobe, you found a winner.
Here are some pieces I’m currently loving from Vault 33:
This Max Mara number is gorgeous for this fall! The clean lines and modest silhouette makes this great for the office. I would dress it up with pointed toe pumps and a statement necklace. A structured leather bag says you are ready for work. Bring along a bright clutch for after work cocktails.
Every winter I am on the hunt for the perfect pair of brown boots. These Prada’s are simple and luxurious. In fall, wear with a flowy over the knee dress and chunky sweater. For winter, skinny jeans and a long coat.
I love mixing art and fashion! This geometric print Marni skirt brings a form of art to a classic pencil silhouette with subtle colors.
This Christian Dior statement necklace is AMAZING!!!! I could love this forever! I would pair this with my favorite jeans and tee, or a solid cocktail dress.
I thought this last item could be a little bit of a fantasy. I instantly fell in love with this beautiful Dolce and Gabbana gown. It’s sleek, classic, and sexy. I may not walk the red carpet, but this is perfect for an evening wedding. Wear it with diamonds and nothing else.
I hope you all find some great additions to your wardrobes. As always, remember my motto: quality over quantity.
