Since we don’t always have time to shop at an actual retail store, what better way to shop than from the comfort of your own home? Below, I’ve listed 6 luxury shopping websites that I admire and think are top-notch. Memberships are free, so sign up, shop and save!
Why I like this site: It has a dizzying array of beautiful vintage treasures, from furniture, to cocktail dresses, to estate jewelry. Only reason it’s in last place is because even the sale prices make me dizzy too.
Why I like this site: This is actually a shopping “service.” Each week, Shop It To Me delivers a personalized email to your inbox with the latest and greatest fashions catalogued from a variety of designer online retailers across the web. You tell it what designers you like and it scours the web and collects sales from Neimans, Bluefly.com, Net-a-Porter and more. Then you shop all the stores featuring your favorite designers in one email. Genius.
Why I like this site: If you’ve seen it on a tv show, they just might have it available for purchase! You can wear the same jewelry or carry the same bag your fave tv star is wearing on the show.
Why I like this site: It’s fairly user-friendly, has a great selection and decent sales. I’ve done my Christmas shopping for friends on Bluefly.
Why I like this site: Also known as Bag Borrow or Steal, infamously mentioned in the first Sex & the City movie, this luxury rental service has grown leaps and bounds since it first stepped on the scene in 2004. Now it not only rents luxury handbags, jewelry and sunglasses, but you can sell your gently loved handbags to Avelle and make a little money too. Because many items are second-hand, if you choose to buy an item you’ve rented, or buy in lieu of renting, then the Avelle price will generally be lower than the retail price of the item if it were new.
Why I like this site: Just looking at this site makes me happy. It exudes luxury. The selection of designer goods is thorough, yet restrained, proving the powers that be have thoughtfully curated each collection. Each sale lasts only 36 hours and is first come first served, so shop early.
