Chronicles of a Consignment Addict (DC)

Consignment shopping is the modern woman's treasure hunting.  The thrill of  the hunt for designer and vintage pieces for up to 90% off the retail price is ADDICTIVE to say the least!   Of course, half of the fun is bragging about how much you saved and showing off your latest loot.  So, in this series of blogs we'll be sharing with you our latest and greatest consignment acquisitions.

Chapter One:  SNAKE SKIN SSSIZZLES

Sunglasses - Jimmy Choo (consignment $30 vs. retail $140)

Black Tank - Nordstrom Rack (retail $20)

Necklace - Banana Republic (retail $30)

Skirt - D&G (consignment $60 vs. retail $250)

Platform suede sandals - DVF (retail $150)

Purse - Chanel  (similar one on SNOBSWAP here)

Cuddly dog - Kona (priceless)

When I found this D&G skirt, I twirled my way to the dressing room.  If you haven't noticed already, python prints are sizzling hot this fall!  This pattern is versatile, edgy and the light and dark color combination makes it the perfect summer-to-fall transition piece.  Hope you got some treasure hunting done this past weekend. ;)

Total Retail Cost = $590 

Cost me = $290

I saved $300!
