Where to find Affordable Designer Pieces

Do you have Champagne taste on a beer budget? Girl, I feel you. 

For most of us, it’s just not realistic to spend upwards of 2k on a designer handbag and have 6 of them on hand to switch out as we please. Although they are beautiful, and one may be able to justify that they retain their value, it’s just not always possible. Where to find affordable designer bags 

But I have great news for you: you can totally afford designer pieces (purses, shoes, clothes) WITHOUT having to pay full price for them! 

Today, I wanted to share some sites you can get those luxury pieces you love for way less than you ever thought. And all of them offer a 100% authenticity guarantee. Read on for the list! 

*BONUS* If you love the STYLE of designer pieces but not the price, check out this post with the ULTIMATE designer dupes list! It has Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Celine, Valentino and MORE!!

The Real Real
This was the first site I ever stumbled across that offered designer pieces for less. On this site, you can get pretty much anything you can imagine. Purses, wallets, jewelry, shoes..even kids things! 

They boast an epic savings of up to 90% off retail, which is probably just for the super sale items, but still! From what I’ve seen, most things are 60-70% off depending on their condition, so you’re still getting a great deal.

If you have any designer pieces yourself, you can also sell to them, too!

Probably not one you expected to see on here, huh? Surprise! Overstock has a ton of designer bag options for discounted prices. 

They have a whole range of designer options from Michael Kors up to Gucci and Louboutin. Their deals can be different every day, so this is one to check back with often if you don’t find what you’re looking for the first time.

Rent the Runway
Not only can you rent dresses and accessories from RTR, but you can also rent bags! They have a ton of options not just for fancy occasions, but just for every day bags as well. 

RTR has all kinds of rental options for any kind of event you can imagine. I used them for my rehearsal dinner dress because I wanted to look a bit fancy but knew I’d never wear that dress again, and it was a great experience. Check them out for any of your rental needs.

OH, how I love eBay. There are so many options on eBay and tons of them are NEW. People just don’t realize what a gold mine this site is! I’ve previously shared some tips for shopping on eBay before because I love it so much.

You can get pretty much any item you can imagine on eBay, you’re not just limited to handbags! Anything you can think of, I’m sure you can find it here. And eBay offers a 100% money-back guarantee for your items if something isn’t right. I’ve had to cash that in once, and they were so helpful and quick to get me my money back. I will always recommend this site for getting great quality pieces at super affordable prices.

Luxury Garage Sale
LGS allows you to buy and sell all kinds of designer pieces. I love the amount of variety they have on this site! 

A few months back, I got a pair of Louboutins from them for my wedding and they didn’t work with my dress so I had to send them back. But my experience working with them made me a customer for life. They were so quick to help me and so polite. I definitely recommend checking them out. 

Bag, Borrow or Steal
This site offers a lot of options! You can rent, buy and sell with them. 

They have a rental options that go by the month which makes carrying around the Louis Vuitton you’ve had your eye on an affordable $250 a month. If you want to keep it longer, the rental will automatically renew each month you keep it. A bonus? There’s always free shipping! 

Bag Romance
Another option to buy or rent handbags. I love the name of this site. Do you think they love Lady Gaga? They’re working on adding a selling option soon as well.

This site offers two different options for rentals — you can do 7 or 30 days at a time. I think it’s really helpful that they have the 7 day option for when you just need it for a night or two. 

This site offers sellers from all over the world like you and me selling their own stuff out of their closets. 

Poshmark does have a pretty heavy markup for sellers, which is kind of unfortunate. Since on this site you’re dealing with individuals more than the company itself, always read reviews and ask for more pictures if you want something clarified. Poshmark does offer to authenticates items for free but only if they’re over $500. 


This is a newly added option! This site does handbags, shoes, clothes and watches. When you sign up for their email list you can get $50 off your first bag!

Of all the options out there, I think these 8 are my tops pics. If you’re in the market for anything designer but aren’t wanting to pay full price (because really, who does??), then I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for on one of these sites! 

You can also always check out your local pawn shops, consignment shops, and Plato’s Closet as they tend to also have some designer bags available for great deals. They’ll probably also have things like TVs, jewelry and other things that might be handy to have around the house. Just check out their return policy before you buy lol! 

Thank you for checking out the post! I linked the purses shown above through the sites I mentioned, so they’re totally shopable! All images are from Pinterest and aren’t mine.

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? ...no. We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
