Notes from a Swedish stylist


Why I Love Second Hand

Posted in Style

Knit sweater, The Row/Vestiaire collective. Uncolored jeans, Filippa K.

Sometimes, trying to buy most things second hand can be frustrating. When you’ve fallen in love with the perfect garment, you think you’ll never find anything similar second hand. I did, and for days I was obsessed with finding something similar to this chunky knit—something I thought would be impossible. However, someone didn’t share my love for this sweater and so this time the fashion faith was on my side as I found this beauty on Vestiaire Collective for less that half of it’s original price!
This is why a wardrobe clean out is always a good idea. Someone’s trash is someone else’s treasure (although I doubt anyone would call anything from The Row “trash”). Lisa, whom I first saw the knit on, has the exact same one and agrees it’s the perfect piece.

Marie Reye: I just saw a new fashion website on secondhand clothes ! They are selling secondhand clothes but also new ones. They take care on the whole process : they recycle your product, then take picture, then sell and deliver it to the customer. This is a ver useful website and prices arev very affordable Link here : https://www.micolet.fr/
