Thred Up_Second Hand Clothing_Milly Dress_Pink Wall_What Would V Wear_Vanessa Lambert

I’ve been a fan of secondhand fashion ever since I found an old, vintage Chanel belt at a local thrift store. I remember I would go at least once a week, in the hopes to find another Chanel treasure — and even though it never happened again, my love for vintage clothing never went away.

    I’ve never done it before but there’s no harm in a good piece of follsecond-hand clothing that still has wear in it. Used to wear my mother’s clothing a lot. Still have a lot of her items in my wardrobe lol.

    What a find! Everything old IS new again. Call it geo print; call it 1960s mod. It doesn’t matter. You look smashing!

    I just did a post about a local resale shop too. Such a good way to score pieces for less, clean out your closet, and recycle. Love this fun dress on you. Have a great weekend babe!

    I’ve been wanting to use thredUP to sell some of my things for so long now! I’m going to finally do it today! haha
    I love this dress you’re wearing btw 🙂 So colorful!

  12. August 12, 2016 / 9:38 AM

    If this dress came from ThredUp, dear V., wow wow and wow! It’s absolutely amazing, I love colorful pieces and it’s really lovely! I confess that I would also love to find a Chanel treasure, but like you said, it didn’t happen – but I also have to confess that I never looked for one like “I think they must have a gem here”. I should! Now I know your story and must keep an eye open, the two of course! You look so beautiful! I hope you have a very nice weekend! Hugs and kisses! – Friday Feelings

    The dress is stunning! You look radiant! Like your heels :-))
    Secondhand shops are not so popular where I live, so it is not my habit to buy there.

    Unfortunately I havent come accross a great place to shop second hand clothing. I would totally go every week too. Lucky you, to find a Chanel belt is everything. I’m in all kinds of love with your dress Vanessa. The fit and the colors are just so perfect. You are beautiful Vanessa.

    This is such a beautiful look, Vanessa! I simply adore that dress and the ’60s mod vibes it has and how you’ve added those sunnies that look perfect paired with it!

    You look so cute Melisa with your pink pants and peplum top! I too am in need of a vacation. Sometimes mini ones are just as good. This trip looks lovely!

    I am a huge fan of ThredUP as well Vanessa! Their designer section has some seriously incredible finds. I have started shopping at ThredUP at least 50% of the time now because I can find such high quality pieces at such a great price. Thank you for sharing them with your readers so more people can enjoy all their awesome finds!

    I love thrift shopping, I think it’s so much FUN (if you have time). I checked ThredUP and this is an other level of second hand fashion! The selection is very cool. Feel like I’m gonna spend a couple of house on this website 🙂

    Thanks for sharing.
