I’m Not a Millionaire, But These 50 Designer Sale Finds Make Me Feel Like One

For the fashion set, there’s always a defining moment in their earlier years that they realize how much they love clothing. Of course, once you fall in love with fashion, you also become aware of a stark truth: designer clothing isn’t cheap. Unless you come from money, buying a $3,000+ handbag isn’t always accessible—add on top of that, it can be hard to find size-inclusive pieces, affordable pieces, and even allocate time to shop. It’s all these reasons and many more that I can understand why someone would want a list of every spring trend and every spring staple worth buying just to call it a day. But for me, over time, I’ve learned that the key to creating a closet filled with great designer pieces comes down to patience and my triple “s” shopping motto. Every designer piece I own now was bought at a sample sale, bought second-hand, or bought on-sale.  And while I derive an almost delirious amount of satisfaction from spending hours on The RealReal, I know some of y’all ain’t about that life. So ahead, I’ve rounded up the 50 best designer pieces on sale right now worth buying because everyone should own a luxury piece they love even if they don’t have all the funds or time in the world.
