Save Money at Designer Membership Shopping Sites

Updated on May 30, 2016

Membership shopping sites trend

A hot new trend is membership shopping sites that have these limited time events where shoppers can purchase designer label fashion for rock bottom prices.

I mentioned this in one of my other hubs called Free Designer Clothes where the risks associated with deadline shopping can be costly.

The one thing that is for sure is that if you know what your looking for you can really put together a fabulous wardrobe.

Get Brand Name Labels for less

Famous brands such as Gucci, Fendi, Armani, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana are top of the line authentic designer brands.

No wonder that people go crazy when it is time for a sale.

It still holds true the more you spend the more you save. Just beware of spending too much. You do not want to end up with outfits you will not actually wear.

Try setting up a clothes swap party

Having a clothes swapping party may be a good idea, if you end up with more than you need.

It just takes some thought into what designer label you will want to trade your outfit for.

Die hard online shoppers can get the best deals on everyday accessories and items in high demand.

You can buy low and re-sell at a higher price if you know what your doing. Online auctions really make it easy to operate a business out of your home.

Bargain Shopping Sites

Here is a list of some of the more popular sites for fashionistas everywhere.

I knew that you wanted to know where to go so I looked it up for you.

The first one is called Beyond the Rack they specialize in fashion and style.

They carry big brands, beauty products and home decor.

It is a membership based website, free to sign up and you get coupons while you shop.

Everyday they have limited quantity events that you can participate in. Just check their calendar to see what time they start.

Another great online spot is HauteLook they put on exclusive designer events for members.

You can save 50 to 75 percent for everyone in the family.

On this site you can also buy items for kids, such as toys and save on travel getaways.

Lastly, there is a place you can find fashion at affordable prices and that is at TheSampleSale.

They have womens, mens and kids brands as high as 85% off retail prices.

Designer Clothes For Less

How much savings is enough? can you calculate the cost associated with buying your favorite fashion accessories online.

It may surprise you how little you actually are saving on the retail price.

One thing you must remember that many of these sales events are advertised in such a way to get you to spend as much money as you can.

It is best to have a budget in mind that you want to stick with, that way once you reach that amount you will have some self control to recognize your limits.

Specialty Shopping Sites Have the Best Designer Clothes

Some of the brands they carry are from Taverniti, Alexander Mcqueen, BCBG, Frankie B and more.

High end luxury brands are easy to buy with these specialty shopping websites.

It is recommended you do some research before joining these type of private membership sites because the more you know about what you are buying the better.

Things to do before you shop

Also think of the time of season you will be wearing these outfits. Summer, winter, fall or spring.

Next look at your closet and see what items you already own that you can mix and match with new purchases.

Count your shoes, belts, scarves and other accessories to make sure you are not overloaded with one type of garment.

And do not forget colors, tan, beige, white, black, green, blue, purple, yellow, orange, etc you get the idea. How much of one color do you need?

This goes for prints as well, stripes, florals, plaids, tweeds. Organize your closet and drawers before you start shopping online.

Can You Really Save Money?

The short answer is yes the long answer is only if you are prepared to do comparison shopping.

Check to see which items you need more of and which you have enough. Think of what type of gathering you will be wearing your new designer threads.

Will you focus on casual wear or evening wear?

I know this sounds like common sense but in the heat of the moment when you are faced with 3 dresses and you want them all. These tips can help you come to the right conclusion.
