Chapter 7 discusses several savvy shopping strategies, including one of my favourite techniques for elevating my personal style. I’m a huge second-hand shopper!
I think it is human nature to be drawn to “pretty things”, and I am no exception. Unfortunately, hefty price tags often accompany these pretty things. Finding them on the second-hand market (most often in brand new condition) allows me to elevate my personal style with unique and special items well below the retail price.
Every item in this photo was purchased second-hand (or rather purchased brand new on the second-hand market). These gold shoes are probably my favourite pair of summer footwear and they are not something I would be able to buy in Canada. They are from the French brand @despetitshauts, and I found them on @videdressing in mint condition. They are special and unique and definitely elevate my outfits! The handbag is also by Des Petits Hauts, and the dress is by Sézane. I got my Ray-Ban sunglasses on eBay. It might take a big longer to find the specific items you want second hand, but I like to view it as treasure hunting. It’s worth the reward!
Do you shop second hand? What’s the best treasure you ever found?
