I briefly wrote about Vestiaire Collective (here) back when I started my blog last year, and since then the site has grown from strength to strength and is now THE place to buy second-hand designer clothes. Everything on the site is vetted by a team of experts, so there is no risk of fakes, all product is in excellent condition and they make sure that everything sold is a product that will sell, so you are guaranteed up to date trends. Each item is sold at a fixed price too, which for me is often a relief.
I often browse eBay for clothing and am always left disappointed. Don't get me wrong, you can get great bargains but I find myself looking for newer, cooler brands like Carven, Thu Thu or Isabel Marant. Click on Vestiaire and they all come up immediately, as if they knew, or something!

I bought as Isabel Marant dress as a treat for my honeymoon - I love her hippy style clothes for holidays but didn't have £600 spare a brand new dress....it took a little while to arrive as it was being checked by experts in Paris but it was definitely worth the wait. I love it.
