2ndhand Stories:: Edition 2: Luxury for Less

If I were to list a few of the labels featured here,  you wouldn’t really guess that they were from a secondhand source:  Céline, Rag & Bone, Tibi. Words like “thrifted” or “secondhand” wouldn’t come to mind… With secondhand shopping comes the experience of owning pre-loved items of stylish fashionistas. It’s a rather transformative way of dressing, and wearing clothing with unknown past can add an element of mystique and excitement. Did my dress come from a specialty boutique store in England / France/ Spain/ Singapore from someone whose grandmother passed it on to her daughter to her daughter in the States who gave it to her friend who eventually donated it to this brick-and-mortar/online  store??  Your dress has a story…

~TIP 2: If you’re looking for luxury items, the best place to look is online, not in store. Up to date items will be on sites such as Tradesy or The Real Real from sellers who want to get rid of relatively current items that they are tired of wearing. Chances are, you will find a plethora of very beautiful items marked down by 50-70% from retail prices just because they have been worn once or twice.
