Every post I tell you I’m in love with some thing–but internet friends, it’s true. This dress. Can I tell you how long I’ve wanted this dress? It’s DVF, a season old and I’ve been in love with it from afar for what feels like forever. We’ve all been there–something comes out and it’s either too expensive at the time or our size sells out–for whatever reason it cannot be ours at the time. There are solutions though! I’m a vintage shopper so I have no qualms about “recycled” clothes–and lately I can’t tell you how much I’ve been loving sites like Tradesy and The Real Real. It’s consignment shopping–so people are reselling their design wear, it has to be up to the site standards, but it’s a way to find steals from seasons past–often you can find items with price tags still on. Both of these sites have return policies so if you do buy something and you don’t love it, you can return it. I can’t tell you the deals I’ve found on both of these sites–I can’t recommend them enough.
What are your thoughts on consignment shopping?
Happy Friday! Wishing you great deals and great shoes! xo RA

Also the crown braid I’ve been rocking all week? It’s thanks to Nicolette at Drybar Beverly Hills–she’s amazing. Her Instagram is @NICOLETTEJK_ if you want hair inspiration!
