What I Actually Bought #010
Goodbye sloppy seconds
Wow, we are already at our 10th edition of "What I Actually Bought”! You are receiving this because you are a Selleb Loyalist and on the early access waitlist for Selleb 2.0, the anti-gatekeeping app we are currently building. It’s a pivot from Selleb 1.0, a platform where celebs (Sellebs) sold their pre-loved items. Please enjoy our weekly newsletter of musings, hacks, & discoveries on fashion and beauty, while awaiting our new app launch… Looks like our viral peanut butter TikTok made it to the Twitter-verse (thanks Casey for catching this!):

Though it’s become part and parcel of our shopping routines, the land of secondhand remains a virgin, untouched, unchartered beauty. There are still endless opportunities for arbitrage and steals, thanks to the Balkanization of resale platforms that has created pricing competition and therefore blessed us with OPTIONALITY. You just have to know where and how to look :)
Ive been buying and selling resale since age 12… im done gatekeeping #resale #vintage #fashiontiktok #viral #greenscreen
Avid secondhand scourers probably know that The RealReal releases new items twice daily at 10AM and 7PM EST and are masters at using optimal keywords in their secondhand search. But do they take advantage of Vestiaire Collective’s 48-hour price drops? These glorious events happen more often than not. If you browse regularly on Vestiaire, make sure to “heart” anything that catches your eye. If the seller activates a 48hr discount, you’ll be the first to be notified in your inbox! Unexpected delights… These discounts are both steep and ephemeral; make sure to pounce fast because indecision is worse than a bad decision, right?
Our trick is to submit an offer on top of the 48-hour deal. Double-dealing ;)
Examples of tempting deals we’ve seen in the past week:
Deal or no deal
Now, onto our fav purchases, best fashion deals on the secondhand market, and best end-of-summer sales. Let’s get to it.
