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.

    I understand you if you says, you don´t buy something because it seems like everybody got it.
    I like your amazing boots a lot, and also your complete outfit.

    Love this post! Long time follower here. These boots are amazing and I too am a consignment lover. I don’t like wearing what everyone else is wearing, and I am trying to find the balance of looking stylish and not trendy. You have absolutely nailed that! You are so on trend, have trend driven pieces, yet never look like everyone else (very carrie bradshaw of you). Keep up the good work!
