Who doesn’t know this scenario? You’re standing in front of your closet and can’t see anything anymore, because of the many clothes in there – one hour later you find yourself saying “I have nothing to wear!“. As a fashion blogger, I don’t want to show you the same outfit every week or bore you with many similar combos – but on the other hand, I don’t want to consume constantly. Lately, I have been thinking about vintage and second-hand shopping more and more. Not only for purchase, but also to sell some of my clothes.
I’m a real basic-lover and even when I’m trying out new trends, I always keep in mind to combine them with my favorite basic items, in which I feel comfortable and confident. I think it’s fun trying out new trends and playing with different materials and colors, but in the end, I feel most comfortable in a striped shirt, skinny jeans and my favorite sneakers. I would never invest money in a pink designer bag, just because the piece is en vogue at the moment. I would rather go for a classic and timeless piece, which I can wear for many years and match with lots of different colors and outfits. So why not shop those timeless classics vintage? REBELLE is a designer second-hand platform with an amazing offer on luxury brands like Chloe, Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton & Co. The benefit of shopping here is very simple: you don’t have the risk of buying fake pieces. A team of experts checks all products accurately and makes sure, that the condition of the products is good and high quality. I also like that the product photos are bright, clear and with a white background, so you can clearly identify the colors and details.
Since I’m back from Paris, I have sorted out some high-quality treasures from my closet, that I wanted to sell for so long. For example, some very nice Chloé loafers, that are sadly too small for me and an amazing black Chloé dress, which doesn’t fit me that well. I will let you know as soon as they’re online on my REBELLE profile.
In this look, that we shot during Paris Fashion Week, I’m wearing another timeless classic: a checkered long blazer. I styled the piece with jeans and simple black high heels. I also combined this beautiful second-hand Gucci bag, that I found on REBELLE, and a silk scarf from IKKS. You can perfectly wear this look “from day to night“, since you can swap the heels with loafers or ballerinas during the day. How do you like my look and what do you think of vintage shopping? Do you sell clothes on second-hand platforms?
