Shopping tips, most of my friends refuse to buy full price. One of my girlfriend used to be manager in a fabulous shop and once told me that a pair of boots sold around £350 had been bought Euro 75 in Italy…many shops are making a very fat margin on their sales. Of course, they need to cover employees, address cost…yet I am not ready to pay for this when I can buy online, wait for sales, or shop the previous season at a very cheap price.

I told you I would give you a few secrets to buy fabulous brands and clothes at an affordable price, my first shopping tip is in respect of markets, especially in Italy where you can find Gucci, Prada, Mui Mui, Tods and other fab brands at bargain cost. Of course they are the previous season collection, but who cares? not me, as an elegant item will always be elegant.

Another shopping tip is to swap your wardrobe with your friends, but this has limits. So why not looking at other women’s wardrobe. You may have plenty of fabulous clothes that you never wear, but find really hard to give to a charity shop. Here is a solution sale them online, and you may also find your dream shoes online at a very acceptable price!!!

Chipie uses two websites, one French link Vestiaire Collective where I bought a fabulous pair of Prada shoes, second-hand yes but hardly worn at all, and at a price I would never have found elsewhere, except maybe on an Italian market, but then if I had the cost of travelling…In fact, this site is great as they select, check all items for you so this is an additional security when buying, although quite annoying when you want to sale. They are quite fussy with the quality of pictures, and price. They are remunerated on commission on each sale, and they are quite greedy which means that you have to reduce your expected price. I have sold one pair of shoes within a week, so it worths a try.

As I disagreed with one of their proposed price for one of my pair of shoes, and they decline a few brands. Therefore, I have been hunting for similar sites, and I found an English site, more recent I think as there aren’t yet that many items for sales. Yet I gave a go, it is buyMYheels

The testimonials are great and I have just put a pair of shoes for sales…I cannot wait to see how it goes and, I will let you know. It is very easy to use and cheap only £2 by article, plus of course the shipping cost.

Another very well-known shopping tips, is eBay. To sale your clothes and shoes or to buy your dream shoes, eBay is great. I found fantastic Yves Saint Laurent shoes for half the retailer price. I have although sold a pair of new Roger Vivier again half price to a very happy buyer. It is now great as you can deal on eBay with your mobile.

So! Chipies if you have clothes and shoes, you don’t wear and are in excellent conditions why no selling them and make some cash for a fresh wardrobe? Enjoy our shopping tips!
