I don’t think I will ever buy a brand new occasion dress again!
In my search for the perfect (secondhand) party dress for a special occasion last week, I ended up trying out the online community Vinted and I have to say that I was completely blown away by the sheer amount of beautiful dresses that people are selling.
What I really liked about it though was that I was easily able to search the website for my favourite brands, size and colour etc. Not to mention that almost all of the dresses are in perfect condition (as they have hardly been worn) and they are being sold at some really great prices.
This does however mean that there is a very serious danger of getting completely carried away and so I would simply just recommend adding any items that catch your eye into your favourites list and then come back to them all a bit later to stop yourself from making any impulsive purchases.
In the end though, I decided to buy a few dresses as I wasn’t too sure of my size or which one would suit me best. Luckily this beautiful sequin one was just perfect and so I now just have to relist those items that aren’t suitable to resell them again.
In terms of the shopping experience, I found that the people selling the items were really helpful and the items arrived very quickly. Plus there is also a Buyer’s Protection scheme and so I feel reassured that if there are any issues with any of the items that my money is protected.
So if you are giving #SecondhandSeptember a try this year but still need to find a special outfit, I can highly recommend having a look at Vinted to find yourself a beautiful bargain!
