Kelly’s style tip of the day: Shop consignment!

My beautiful new baby, Saint Laurent’s Sac-De-Jour

Meet my new baby! This insanely beautiful, and absolutely perfect, Saint Lauren Sac-De-Jour bag, is all mine, after years of wishing and dreaming, and of course saving (it doesn’t come at a cheap price tag!). Instead of the going the typical route of paying full price by buying online, or at a department store, I decided to take my chances, and wait patiently to find my dream handbag at a local consignment shop. And boy am I glad I’m a Capricorn girl (we are know for our insane patience), because I scored this iconic bag (in my dream color and style BTW), at the Short Hills consignment wonderland, Double Take, for a fraction of the retail price!┬áThe stars were clearly aligned that day for me. The moral of the story here, is to have patience, and never overlook the power of the consignment shop. You never know what treasures you can discover, and the best part, you’re wallet won’t hate you. Happy hunting!
