With budgets as tight as they are these days, it is almost impossible to have any disposable income left after necessities. While clothing budgets usually include a valid clothing allowance, those with a desire for designer clothes need to shop around to make their purchases fit within the budget.
However, with many web sites offering deep discounts on designer clothes, along with free shipping and many times tax-free, it is possible to build a high-end wardrobe without paying high-end prices. If one prefers to shop in person and try on items before purchasing, just about every top designer has a store at an outlet mall location.
There are many brick and mortar consignment shops that also offer a variety of gently-used or never worn designer clothes. A sudden job loss or other income restrictions have forced wealthy people to unload clothing and accessories for needed cash. Taking advantage of someone else’s disadvantage at a second-hand store can have a person dressed to the nines without paying the price the original owner paid. Because consignment shops are overloaded with inventory due to so many people needing fast cash, they will only accept merchandise in excellent or never worn condition. Consignment shops are a great place to find evening wear or special occasion formal attire that has only been worn for a few hours for only a few dollars
