My current favourite pre-loved designer fashion website, Vestiaire Collective, has come up with the ingenious idea of WEAR NOW, PAY LATER – interest-free credit spread over three months (on purchases over £400). What’s not to love?
What I love about Vestiaire Collective is that it is awash with everyone’s favourite designer labels, from Chloé, Isabel Marant and Stella McCartney to Burberry, Chanel and Gucci. I am just about to buy myself a pair of Miu Miu sunglasses that are £100 off the original price and have never been worn. I had my eye on them at Miu Miu over Christmas, but they were too expensive. My patience has paid off!
There are the more unusual labels too, such as my love-of-the-moment, Vita Kin, and although not generally reduced in price, at least these impossible to get hold of dresses are available and most have hardly been worn. In fact, I will be selling one of my Vyshyvanka by Vita Kin dresses on Vestiaire very soon, so watch this space.
So the idea of wear now, pay later, is rather tempting. Perhaps it’s time to invest in that long-coveted Chanel handbag?
