Even though this doesn’t totally relate to what I’ve been living in the past few weeks, I found myself delving into my iPhoto past and finding these from my last MyDaily ed. I really love the thick wool and shape of this Acne jacket, which begs the question why i didn’t buy it for £50 at the last stock sale, when it was still being sold online at the time for a few hundred. No wonder Acne stocksales end up queuing around the block (If you wanna get serious be there an hour previous). I didn’t mean for that to rhyme.
Recently I’ve been thinking about how lucky Londoners must be, with dozens of questions coming my way about how I actually afford a designer wardrobe, when I don’t buy anything, ever, full price. The answer is of course; the sample sales happening twice a year ranging from Christopher Kane to Antipodium; the famous London department stores, Selfridges, Harrods, Liberty and Harvey Nichols plummeting their end of line sales to 80% off in the final week; and finally my biggest weakness, eBay. Obviously eBay is for everyone, but the rest has me feeling like Londoners are pretty lucky. Obviously New York probably has it even better, and I know Antwerp stocksales are pretty unmissable, but what’s it like in your city, where do you find your bargains?
