It's hard to believe that Mother's Day is almost here already. Each year I do a last minute Mother's Day gift guide for those who typically wait to the last minute like I do. But this year, in conjunction with that, I thought that I should put together a list of luxe-y dupe items that moms in your life will appreciate having.
I didn't feel comfortable sharing my birthday haul a year ago while so many were struggling with the impacts of the pandemic and trying to figure out what would be happening to them next. Many are still in that situation now to be honest, however y'll have shown a lot of interest in some of these pieces, so I figured that now was a good time to share.

Being one of largest online thrift store, ThreadUp offers a large variety of styles and options to browser through. While I personally think that some of their luxury items are overpriced and can be found at a better value elsewhere, great deals can be found with the designer and contemporary brands they consign. They generally end up having huge stock from brands like Free People, MADEWELL, Lululemon and the such. And many pieces are new with tags. Ultimately, it's a wonderful place to shop secondhand and way more organized than most traditional thrift shops I frequent. That's why I was excited to hear that they recently partnered with Rent The Runway to help them recycle their clothing.
I'm a HUGE propionate of buying used and I do that all the time through sites like Poshmark and Fashionsphile. But for this blog, we are going to narrow in on how to save when buying new. Saving while buying new items is a lot harder to figure out--espically if you're shopping for luxury items. But if you time things right, you can get great deals and even reseller and make a bit of extra cash if you want. So how do I go about saving upwards of 25-30% when I'm shopping for new luxury items? I will share exactly how I saved almost 25% on a new pair of Christan Louboutin heels and Saint Laurent bag. But first, let's cover some savvy shopper's basics.
