Expensive fashion for those with more modest wallets

Designer clothes tend to be timeless and well made — I guess that is why the magazines call it “investment dressing.”

However, the reality is that most moms simply cannot afford to invest thousands of dollars on one article of clothing, no matter how timeless and chic it is. Even if we want it really, really bad, and it would look super cute on us.

Yes, you could always hit up the consignment shops — but who has time to do that with kids in tow? And of course, there’s eBay, but how do you know that item you are bidding on is the real deal?

The Real Real is a new online sales site that combines everything we love about high fashion and the internet into one affordable package.

They carry designer fashions on consignment at rock bottom prices (I saw a Burberry trench coat for $295 instead of 8 or $900) and they hand select and beautifully style each item so you don’t have to dig through junk to find that perfect piece. These limited time sales include some pieces that are “gently loved,” but many are brand new with tags on. That can be a real real steal.
