Shopbop's 3-Day Sale Means You Can Actually Afford To Shop Designer

The reality is that few people can actually afford to shop for designer items on a regular basis. I can't, most of my friends can't, and most people that I know who are around my age can't. (Heck, most people I know period can't!) This is why Shopbop's 3-day sale, which is offering up to 40 percent off on thousands of select styles, is so dang exciting. The retailer carries an array of high-brow brands including Alexander Wang, Diane von Furstenberg, Acne Studios, Stuart Weitzman, Moschino, and many more that are typically way out of my budget. But thanks to the major discounts, I might finally be able to add a designer item or two to my closet.

The three-day sale started yesterday, meaning you still have two days to shop it. (It ends tomorrow, Nov. 1.) If I were you, I'd get to perusing the included items ASAP in order to ensure they don't sell out. Whether you're looking for a swimming suit for an upcoming tropical getaway or boots, coats, and dresses for the winter, the sale will have something for you. Below, I picked out some of my favorite items to help you get a head start on your own shopping, with many of them being under $100. (Told you the discounts were good!)
