Online Resale Sites to Know

I thought Id share some great online designer resale sites that sell everything from clothing to accessories. This is a great way to save money and help the environment. You can find gently used accessories such as handbags and jewelry at anywhere from 30 - 80% off, depending on the condition. 

Users can literally take a peek into each other's closets. Photograph yours and upload images (even if you aren't selling and it's just for bragging rights), or create a virtual dream closet. Many items come from discerning Parisians.
Brands you can expect to find: Alaïa, Hermès, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta.
How the selling process works: Photograph and submit your luxury designer item for consideration (images will be professionally cleaned for actual sale) or utilize the concierge service for a 35% commission.

Shop Hers has a patent-pending "Style Soul Mates" algorithm that places buyers and sellers into sub communities based on style similarities.
Brands you can expect to find: Dior, Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, Givenchy.
How the selling process works: Sellers upload images and set a price, or send the item to Shop Hers and have them do the listing and shipping for a steeper 35% transaction fee.
Percentage of sale charged as commission: 18%

It's a hybrid luxury designer consignment and flash sale site.
Brands you can expect to find: Balenciaga, Fendi, Jason Wu, J Brand.
How the selling process works: Submit items to The RealReal for consideration either by shipping them in or by using their free pickup service, available in major US cities. Inspection, photography and pricing is controlled by The RealReal.

If buying, this site is best for: Widest selection of luxury designer merchandise.

Closely curated to feel like the ultimate downtown-mid-twenties-girl's closet. It operates with a unique site currency and gives new users a starting balance to hit the ground running.
Brands you can expect to find: Rachel Comey, Dolce Vita, Nasty Gal, bygone designer and fast fashion collabs.
