I think it’s so thrilling trying to avoid all things new, opting for second hand instead! As I’ve said before: You save a lot of money, and also have a chance to end up with things that no one else has.
For this bag though, only the first of the two is true. A few days after I bought it on Vestiaire Collective, I met my former boss Elin in our office building, wearing a bag just like it. She told me she had been wearing hers every day for years, and it still looked brand new. I was naturally very pleased to hear it, since I think this bag will work just as well now as it will when I’m eighty.
Most of the things I buy nowadays are things I hope to still be wearing when I’m old. Or even better: things that will be worn by my children or even grandchildren!
Btw! Did you know Vestiaire Collective has launched a new bag hub on the site? Read more about it here.
