We are all a bit guilty when it comes to buying ourselves a special treat every once in a while. As I typically visit gilt.com every few days to check out the sales on my favorite brands, or even in hopes of stumbling upon a new designer or line I plan on adding to my collection of favorites. I don’t think I have ever visited the site and not found SOMETHING to die for… but the big designers like Chanel, Michael Kors, Tiffany, Marc Jacobs and the likes only pop up on a seemingly rare occasion. When this happens, you better be on there as soon as the sale hits; otherwise you could be missing out on snagging the hottest new piece to add to your already goddess-like collection of sassy fashion pieces. By this I mean, you don’t have to have a designer packed closet, I don’t. It doesn’t matter if your swag is from Forever 21, Barney’s or the Goodwill- If it’s hawt and you know how to flaunt it, you own a goddess collection.
Now I absolutely had to share a few of the Chanel items with you from the Second Chance Vintage Accessories on gilt.com, because they are just too good to post all over my twitter and Facebook fan page. These items are not just hot; they are are sassy, sexy, sophisticated and will surely augment the goddess in you whichever outfit you may be in. The key is, when you’re shopping, wherever it may be, finding the pieces that you can hold on to forever. Each and every piece of jewelry you buy- whether it be a $2 ring of a $60 pair of earrings, you should always act as if it is really a $3,900 Chanel item. Why you might ask? Well, the thing I have found is that, us girls only have a limited amount of room for all our goods and hello? You should always have a limited spending account for fashion- even if you’re Paris Hilton. Because, think about it; do you want a closet full of outfits you wore once but now hate because they were a one day only trend or they fell apart in the laundry… or would you rather have a classy, limited closet filled with to die for items you know you can rock day or night, winter or summer?
Ray Ban Envy
I hope you said yes to the latter. It’s just like my mothers friend; who, when I saw her over the summer she was twinkling in THE cutest pair of Ray Ban glasses. A pair I didn’t even recognize. Ended up, she had bought them a decade ago and kept them because she loved them so much. Then, when they came back the past two years she busted them out and Voilà!- She is now the proud owner of a pair of glasses, which some would consider to be vintage. Obviously an item I could only wish MY mother had for me to steal.
So with that I had to show you some of these breathtaking Chanel pieces from gilt.com. These are the kinds of pieces you could pair with an outfit worn a bajillion times. While a few accessories can create an array of looks, why buy 15 “going out” shirts you will eventually toss, when you can wear your favorite paired with some different bling, at the cost of no one ever noticing?
