Let's take a break from vacation posts for a couple days. Earlier this year I was introduced to a fun new website, Nyopoly. I've been perusing it since then and thought I'd let you all know what I think of it! With Nyopoly, you negotiate your personal price on current trends and designer brands (like Jil Sander, Prada, Michelle Monroe and more!) This way, you get what you love, at a price you want to pay. Nyopoly is like walking in to a store, grabbing an item off the shelf, and determining your purchase price with the cashier.
When you join Nyopoly you get a $5 credit AND if you email joe[at]nyopoly.com and say I referred you to the site you'll get your credit doubled to $10! You can get more Nyopoly money when an offer you make is accepted. If it is accepted on the first offer you get 20% back, the second gets you 10%.
I thought long and hard about what item I wanted to attempt to purchase. In the end I decided on the Sachi Front Woven Hobo by Melie Bianco in Aqua (unfortunately that had sold out so I got the blush instead.) The retail price is $99 and I got it for $73.99, a little over 25% savings, not too shabby! To test things out I started my offer at (a very low) $20, and was given a counter offer, then repeated that process until we arrived at the final price. The item got to me fairly quickly, the site says within 7 to 14 days, but for me it was closer to 7.
Below I paired it with a gorgeous new Free People dress I got on vacation! I love all the braided details and the cutout in the back :) It is part of the New Romantics collection but unfortunately is sold out online.
Dress: Free People (Marshalls), Heels: Lanvin (Roundabout Resale), Necklace: Geoclassics, Bag: Melie Bianco c/o Nyopoly, Watch: Michael Kors (Lord & Taylor), Rings: vintage & Mom's
