Today for #shoesday I’m talking about all of my RealReal shoe purchases and showing a few currently available that have my eye. It’s all in celebration of National Consignment Day. There really is a day for everything. I think it is also National Pierogi day. #WhoKnew #NationalConsignmentDay
Consignment is really about sustainable consumption and a circular economy. If we combine them … let’s call it circular consumption … then you are ensuring that fashion you no longer want makes its way to a new home rather than a landfill. This not only helps our planet but our pocket books and I guarantee you it makes someone’s day! You know that feeling when you finally find that certain piece you’ve been hunting for? #GetThatFeeling
So what does #shoesday have to do with consignment you ask? Well, it just so happens that the same place I often acquire unique shoes is the same place I sell unique shoes I’m not longer wearing. The RealReal is an online re-seller for luxury items. I not only use their services to sell pieces I am no longer wearing but to acquire something unique you won’t find anywhere else. And while I have purchased clothes from them, I more frequently purchase shoes (14 that I currently own) and I’m going to share all of them with you today.
If I could only buy shoes from one place for the rest of my life – it would probably be from The RealReal. #SorryNordstrom
RealReal Special Occasion Stunners
I love a unique shoe and they ALWAYS deliver. When I was looking for the perfect shoes for my sister’s wedding last month this is where I found them!
When I needed stunners for my black tie gala next month that perfectly match my dress. The RealReal is where I found them.
The Fendi monster flats I refused to pay full price for. Just ordered them. Now if I could only score the mesh ones I’ve been craving for a year I would be a very happy camper.
RealReal Designer Everyday
Unique not your thing? They cover practical shoes too. Remember my endless search for new black heels? The RealReal solved the problem with these Prada beauties.
I also added a second pair of my favorite VINCE D’Orsay heels.
Who can resist classic black and white with a sensible kitten heel? Clearly not me. #JadoreDior
RealReal Colorful Shoes
And since we are in the midst of the October #ColorCrush challenge let’s not forget about color. So much color. So many fun shoes.
It was a celebration last spring when I found these coral Sarah Jessica Parker Sandals.
And Blue Denim Choos for half price. #YesPlease
RealReal Leopard Love
Did I mention Leopard yet? Three of my favorites in my vast collection have been acquired from The RealReal. First, these Kate Spade ones with a bright red accent heel. They have yet to make their sidewalk debut because I broke my toe about the same time they were purchased. #PatientlyWaitingToWear
These Fendi pseudo-Mary Janes that have made more than one social appearance.
And these DVF beauts that always garner more attention than whatever else I happen to be wearing. #MyClothesAreJealous
RealReal Boots & Booties
Since we are moving into Boots and Bootie season it would be a shame to not talk about those as well. From practical black to hot pink they deliver in the bootie category for sure!
Like these Rag & Bone throwbacks that I stalked for nearly six months.
These Stuart Weitzman classics that I wear nearly every week all Winter long. #JustAddTights
And my most recent add – these Veronica Beard mid calf boots currently sitting in my closet crying for cooler temps. #NotLiterallyCrying
The RealReal Shoes On My Feet
Ready to find your own pair? Kick up your pre-loved heels and have a browse. Here is my latest obsession that just may get added to my cart. #ImTalkingAboutYouTibiBooties
I find the best way to browse the shoes is to just dig in but be sure to filter by size. No sense drooling over gorgeous Manolos that won’t fit on your foot. #Happens
Most shoes can be returned if you find they don’t fit. Just be certain to read the Return Policy – when they fall below a certain price they are often sold as final sale. Also be sure to use the code REAL to score 20% off most full price items.
