4 Places to Discover
Pre Owned Luxury
This beautiful Chanel handbag is one of the best purchases I've ever made. There's something about the shade of yellow, the structured top handle and that detachable chain/crossbody strap that makes me smile. If I'm ever looking for a piece to brighten up both my look and my day, this beauty always makes an impromptu appearance.
It's been in my collection about 2 years now, after someone in our community spotted it on the Luxury Promise Instagram and forwarded it onto me with the message 'I think you might like this...' and the rest is history as they were right - I loved it haha
Some of the most loved and most coveted pieces in my collection have been discovered and purchased from sites that curate and stock sought after luxury and designer pieces that are considered to be pre owned. Often they're in immaculate condition, sometimes they've been well used and sometimes they're even still in their original packaging because they didn't see the light of day.
If you also loved pre owned shopping, for sustainability reasons, for the love of forever pieces or simply for the opportunity to get your hands on a pieces that's no longer 'available' in store, here are 4 places I go to when browsing.

Luxury Promise are one of my all time favourite places to discover pre owned beauties like my Chanel top handle featured in these images from Venice last month and my one true love - my Hermes Kelly 25 in Jaune Ambre. Swoon! I was lucky enough through my many purchases from them to have chatted with Sabrina who founded the business and she even went as far as to send me a stunning birthday gift this year which I was utterly floored by. If you're looking for impeccable quality, one of a kind customer service and a chance to get hold of some rare designer pieces, then definitely head over to their Instagram here or their website here.
My once in a lifetime purchase of me 1972 Hermes Kelly 28 came from the pre owned pages of Farfetch and until I was lucky enough to discover my vintage beauty (I named her Lucy don't you know?) I had no idea just how many pages of finds the site hosts! They list pieces from the most lusted after luxury designers in the game and from some of the most experienced boutiques around the world. If you're looking for your next pre owned handbag, a wow piece of occasion jewellery or even a designer watch that you'll cherish forever you can start browsing over on the site here. (ad)

Vestiaire Collective is not only a place I browse luxury items as often as I head to my favourite designer platforms, it's also my platform of choice when it comes to selling my pre loved pieces too. I've been lucky enough to work with the brand a few times over the years (disclaimer - this isn't part of that work!) and I choose to sell my own pieces with a percentage donated to charity because I know so many of you love it too. You can head to the Vestiaire Collective app to discover my pages by searching for 'inthefrow' in the members tab or start searching for your next second hand addition by brand from the homepage. You'll be spoiled for choice believe me!
