After six years in the fashion industry, I learned that my taste will always be bigger than my budget. Although I don't limit my ability to achieve financial success one day (a girl can dream), the unfortunate truth is that I will never be able to toss dough onto designer collections every season. But that didn't stop me from finding creative ways to bring these items into my dressing room.
Just because I can't afford designer digs from the start doesn't mean they're completely inaccessible. There are traditional outlets like finding sample sales and using rental services, and then there is my little-known favorite resource: shopping at Need Supply Co. The Virginia-based retailer has been a gem for fashion girls for a decade. Not only is it a great place to discover emerging and indie brands, it also offers some of the best sales known to the industry.
When the Need Supply Co. discounts arrive, they are always worth a look. In contrast to the huge e-tailer colleagues, the website sales are not small. My previous purchases included an MM6 dress for under $ 50, a Rejina Pyo jacket for the same cost as my monthly subway card, and my favorite pair of A.W.A.K.E. Fashion pants for almost 80% discount. But don't just take my word for it. We whistle our best-kept secret and show you where to find affordable designer gems (all under $ 250).
