A keen eye. Patience. Luck. These are just some of the things you need in order to uncover the coolest inexpensive fashion finds. It also helps to have some expert-level score-sourcing techniques, like the ones I picked up during my years as an editor at Lucky and now put to use on behalf of LE CATCH. I’m talking about things like how to assess the quality of the garment on your screen and why you should ignore the season when you’re shopping.
Click through to learn my hard-earned shopping tips and see some of my current favorite (and bound-to-sell-out!) finds. And if you like those, you can find more of my favorites daily on LE CATCH!
