Get designer fashions on a budget

Bidding for style bargains

If you covet designer fashion but can't quite fit it into your budget, try these online auction sites to score your favorite couture at a bargain price.

Bidding for style bargains


Every day, a billion items are put up for auction on Ebay. You might have visited the megasite to shop for electronics, household goods and other items already, but if you're bypassing the clothing and accessories sections, you're missing out. Many high-end clothing items are offered through great stores that ensure authenticity and good prices.

AJM Fashions

Another site to try is AJM Fashions, which carries designer brands and the latest trends at a fraction of their retail prices. AJM offers pieces from Alexander Wang, Free People, Philip Lim 3.1, Hard Tail, James Perse, 7 for All Mankind and Jimmy Choo, among others.

The best chance to find a steal is during the etailer's weekly auctions. Every Monday,  between 5 and 9 p.m. MST, new items are put up for auction and are available until the following Monday evening.

Buying online means no more dealing with messy racks and long lines -- and you'll get your designer deals right in the comfort of your own home.
