When You Want The Glam But You Don’t Have $$$

When I first moved to Boca Raton, in the 1990’s, I was floored. Now first of all, I’m from NYC, not Brooklyn, not Queens, not Staten Island…the place where everyone wants to go or be from! The place where we all became friends with Carrie Bradshaw. The hometown of the Rockettes, the Village and The Met. I was from, MANHATTAN. So it’s not as if I never saw a cool thing or two, but Boca was like a fairy land of cleanliness and water fountains. Twenty-four year-olds were stay at home moms and drove new BMW’s. When I got there, no one worked (I didn’t either), but that’s another blog post. My car was a minivan, I didn’t have a Benz, I didn’t have cool Swedish baby furniture, I didn’t know what to buy or who to ask. If I’m honest there were many times I felt inferior. I never would have carried a designer imposter purse; couldn’t those be sniffed out?

If only I knew then what I know now and it’s call Poshmark, The Real Real, Tradesy and a myriad of other sites which allows a person to pay monthly for a designer bag (Gucci for 35 bucks a month), a Yurman bracelet for 40 a month. The list goes on and on. On Poshmark, you can gently negotiate your price. You can buy a bag in mint condition or something that’s a little more loved. The point is, now everyone can get a little taste of luxury without waiting for an inheritance. I have my eye on a Neverfull on Poshmark and I’m not embarrassed to say it. I feel like a winner! Click on the links below and take a tour. Treat yourself, you deserve it!
