Luxury without Labels

The same factories that produce the high-end luxury brands we love like Chanel, Armani and products found at St. Regis and Four Seasons are available to the public without the label, at a fraction of the cost!

ell hello in front of my new but old, antique room divider. Just showin’ it off because I’ve been obsessed with it since I bought it a few weeks ago for just $180! I felt like the luckiest girl when I saw it and it was in great condition, minus the back of it which is green velvet and has a little light sun bleach but whatever, it’s the back! The front is perfection!

But I’m not here to just talk about the new panel, but these cute shoes that are so pretty!

High Quality without the Price tag

You know the factories that produce the high-end products we know and love? The site Italic provides products direct from the same factories as Chanel, Prada, Armani and UGG to name a few, to consumer without the label. So you can get the same quality that designers provide minus the label. You are just getting the quality item, leather, a similar design, at realistic prices. A membership gives access to 1000+ quality products produced by the same manufacturers as top luxury brands, with zero markups — meaning, Italic doesn’t profit on product sales whatsoever.

Retails for $125 (compared to Balenciaga - $795 and Saint Laurent - $645)

Made from Napa leather, the Stella pump (c/o) I’m wearing are made in Italy, with a comfy 70mm and comes in black, off white and a gorgeous red. This Stella pump is a contemporary take on a timeless classic that feels modern without being trendy. It retails for $125 (compared to Balenciaga – $795 and Saint Laurent – $645).

They gifted me these shoes I picked out, and I recommend sizing up a half size or a full size. I normally wear an 8 in pumps and 8.5 in boots and sandals (is that strange I have two sizes?) but I went for an 8.5 and it is a snug fit, so go up a half size at least for theses pretty pumps!

The membership

Italic is a membership to have access to home goods like bedding, clothing, shoes, and accessories for men and women, fitness, travel, pet goods, with new products dropping on the site – you can see the ‘coming soon‘ tab for what new products will drop!  The membership will pay for itself with just a few purchases or even a single purchase – so if quality is what you’re after you can enjoy luxury without the label.

You can do a trial for 30 days and cancel for any reason. So that’s a good enough excuse to give it a try right?

Who wants a cashmere sweater for $65?! Amazing.

I’m all for quality over anything else and though I love labels, I really don’t care as much as I want to make sure the quality is there – and many of the things we own anyway like bed sheets, some shoes and more don’t have labels on them anyway. Check out more on Italic’s site, you can also gift a membership to a friend too, so it would be a good gift too!

I was not compensated for this blog post I just wanted to share a site I thought would be helpful but I was gifted a pair of shoes!
