Do you do second hand, vintage or passed down? Or are you a strictly ‘brand spanking new’ only person?
I have to admit there is something about new and shiny things all wrapped up in beautiful packaging and then again, I also love something almost new, but at a fraction of the original cost.
Recently I purchased these uber cool Jimmy Choo ‘Carrera’ black and gold wayfarer style sunglasses on line from Charlotte’s wardrobe over at The Fashion Guitar. I know how much she loves her clothes and can assume therefore that she looks after them pretty well too. They arrived all the way from NYC in their case, nicely packaged and ready to wear. If I didn’t know better, I would have said they were brand new.
The popularity of the second hand designer shop is definitely on the rise where I live and really it makes sense. I buy great clothes for me and my kids, look after them and when I fall out of love, need a clothing purge or the zip gets too tight, I take them in to one of the stores near me and someone else resells them. None of the time, effort or drama. Just a cheque at the end. It’s a great way to buy too and if you are local enough to visit these in person, you can try everything on before you buy. My most epic second hand purchase was a fitted black Givenchy jacket I paid £80 for. It still is epic.
