On Shopping Consignment…

Lately I am really obsessed with shopping consignment for clothes and shoes. It’s a really good time to snap up some of those late 00’s pieces you wanted but couldn’t splurge on when they were in season. I often like to shop out of season for the reason that if I have been thinking about buying something for literally years, I am much more likely to wear it and love it forever. These Isabel Marant boots are a good example. Isabel Marant used these boots in both her spring 2009 and fall 2009 collections and I really loved them then. I am someone who won’t buy something if I see everyone else wearing it though, and I saw those boots all over the internet that year and it killed my desire to buy a pair of my own. As years have gone by, I look back on those 2009 collections very fondly. Isn’t it crazy that it will be 10 years ago since that collection soon? After all of this time I still love those boots. I think Net-a-Porter got a reissue of them maybe two years ago and at that time I considered again if I wanted them but I suppose the right amount of time had not passed. I finally got to thinking about them again and broke down a few weeks ago and tracked down a size 39 on the RealReal. I am so glad that I did! These boots are very glam rock, I have fun when I wear them. I see these with lots of leather pants when the weather cools down but for now I am happy to wear them with mini skirts.

  15. Such a cool outfit! I love the boots. Sometimes I can wait ages before buying an item too, but you’re right that you end up wearing it more after the wait.
