Finding designer items for cheap always gives me a little thrill. I don’t always share it because I assumed everyone knew the same little secrets I did. While I was speaking to someone last week about finding this scarf for $40, they were shocked. So, here’s a little-known place to find a few designer pieces, T.J. Maxx.com. There is a Runway section on the site that features Theory, Milly, YSL, Gucci, Valentino, Stuart Weitman, and many other designers. The selection varies, sizing can be limited, and it sells out quickly but it can be deeply discounted at times.
These designer items are on the site under The Runway tab. This site doesn’t offer a wishlist but you can put items into your shopping bag without checking out and they will be saved for later. However, these items sell out very, very quickly. I put them in my shopping bag long enough to shop around on the interweb for the lowest price. Most of the items are last season (or the season before that). I usually look for pieces that are timeless; a great loafer, scarf, a classic bag, or watch.
I found one of my favorite dresses, a $400 Derek Lam 10 Crosby dress (seen here) for $99. T.J. Maxx.com offers free shipping for orders $89 + and free returns in the store. If you choose to return by mail $9.99 will be deducted from your refund amount. Good luck hunting for discounted designer items.
