Some long overdue menswear

Two decent days bargain hunting. Purchases include:

  • COS jumper
  • COS dress
  • AllSaints cardigan
  • Temperley jumper
  • Robert Noble tweed suit
  • Favourbrook jacket
  • Paige jeans
  • Sarah Pacini skirt
  • Rapha jumper
  • American vintage jacket
  • Jigsaw jumper

It’s worth mentioning that country sports attire has a big following on eBay – tweed shooting jackets, hunting waterproofs and premium equestrian labels are all worth buying second hand. Check the condition as they’re often vintage but buyers are often willing to overlook a bit of wear for this type of clothing.

Style and ski wear

Despite the atrocious weather I still managed to find some little gems today………

  • Diane von Furstenberg lace dress
  • Sweaty Betty leggings
  • rag & bone jeans
  • Zara fur bomber
  • AllSaints chunky jumper
  • Custommade cardigan
  • Rene Lezard quilted coat
  • Elisa Cavaletti shirt
  • Free People one piece

So a really great mix of items, found within about an hour and a half of shopping. Most of this will appear in my eBay store so take a look. If you’re thinking of selling your own clothes on eBay let me know if you have any questions. Happy bargain hunting!

Maison Martin Margiela and more

Not a bad day at all today! Here’s what I bought……….

  • Ghost jacket
  • Maison Martin Margiela for H&M dress (see picture below!)
  • COS dress
  • Levi’s trucker jacket (brand new!)
  • DKNY jumper
  • Oliver Spencer tweed jacket

So all in all, pretty good. I’m especially pleased about the H&M dress because as collaborations go this is one of the most popular, and one that I haven’t found secondhand before. I’ve decided to sell this one as it’s not quite my look – but it might be yours!?

A word about designer/high street collaborations – I love them but not all are popular with buyers. Check before you shell out too much.

Welcome

Hi, and welcome to My Preloved Wardrobe – hopefully soon to be your new favourite fashion blog (with a difference).

Quick introduction – I am a full time secondhand fashion buyer and have built up a pretty successful eBay business selling some of the amazing clothes I find – some from private clients of mine, and some from secondhand and charity shops.  Over the last ten years interest has grown substantially in the secondhand market – be it for financial or ethical reasons.

These days I get asked so many questions about it that I’ve decided to start this blog.  I aim to share with you some of the frankly unbelievable clothes I find and answer your questions on anything from what and where to buy, to how to run a successful eBay store.  Mainly I just want to share pictures of clothes!

What did I find in the secondhand shops today!?

  • La Perla jacket (brand new!)
  • Joseph sequin dress
  • YMC jacket
  • COS skirt (brand new!)
  • Tucker blouse
  • Sandro tiger sweater
  • Sandro bulldog sweater
  • Sandro ‘S’ sweater
  • Goat dress
  • American Vintage jacket
  • Sandro t-shirt

Get in touch via the comments box below – I’ll be back soon with my latest finds. Don’t forget my eBay store is just a click away at the top of the page!
