Have you ever found a too-good-to-be-true designer deal on eBay? Well, chances are, it might actually BE too good to be true: you could be spending all your hard-earned cash on a fake! On today’s Sew & Tell, I’m joined by fashion authentication expert Fei Deyle, whose personal passion for designer goods turned her Herve Leger blog into a sorely-needed online designer goods retail platform called Lollipuff. Unlike most other resale sites, Lollipuff offers 100% authentication of goods bought and sold, and, not surprisingly, it has grown rapidly since its launch just eight months ago. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Fei about how a personal blog led to a revolutionary retail website, her personal passion for designer goods (and, of course, Herve Leger!), and a few telltale signs that can alert a buyer to a fake.
Plus, a great playlist of new music including the latest from Superchunk, The Dismemberment Plan, DIANA, Julia Holter, and more! So turn it up and tune in for some *authentically* stylish radio, on BTR!
