How to snag designer labels at up to 90% off the label

Dayvee with her Fendi Spy bag

Growing up in the '80's, I was obsessed with the glamorous life, though I never thought it would be mine. 

From the "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" on television to the supermodels in the magazines, I was overwhelmed with images of designer labels.
All I wanted was a piece of that. If I could have one perfume or bag, a sweatshirt or even a luggage tag, I thought I was worthy or even special - like those glamorous ones on TV.

In my early 20's, I finally had a little money to spend, and the desire for at least one designer bag continued. Part of this was the reinforcement by images of celebrities I loved to follow in the magazines...and slowly in the early 2000's, online.

I vividly remember seeing Lindsay Lohan carry the Fendi Spy bag. I have always loved Fendi. I chose that designer when all of my friends obsessed over Louie Vuitton. (That has always been me - if everyone likes it, him or her, I'm not that interested.) So, I put the spy bag on my list, and got one! I found one for a bargain, too - just under $1000!
Since it was such a big investment, something I thought I would keep forever and let it be an inheritance to my family, I only wore it on special occasions; that lasted for maybe two years.
I haven't worn that bag in nearly 10 years now. I pulled it out of its dust bag the other day and thought, "I should sell this!"
