Shopping Guide: Unique Fashion Buys

As much as we love strutting down the high street or browsing the web for the newest looks to hit the stores, we can’t help but feel that we want something a little more unique to jazz up our existing wardrobes.  We put a little list together of ideas on where to grab those rare money can’t buy pieces

 

Try Vintage

 

Vintage and charity shops line our streets, and although the selection is overwhelming, you are sure to find a hidden treasure if you take the time to properly browse through. Gorgeous vintage designer gowns and finds can often be bought at insanely cheap prices.  Leather jackets, 80s blouses and good old 501 Levi’s are usually in abundance – vintage shopping is so fun!

Sample Sales

 

Time Out magazine and websites such as Curate Sales list numerous samples sales that occur (mainly in London!).  This is your chance to grab designer pieces at severely discounted price (sometimes up 80% off!)  It’s a great place to grab a special high-end piece at an affordable price – we’re waiting for the next Jimmy Choo sale!

 

Outlet Villages

 

Major outlet visits are located up and down the country nowadays and a great way to spend a weekend. Bag styles from your favourite designers at outlet prices – many brands are actually stocking limited edition looks – perfect to get a unique piece that you know no one else will be wearing at the next wedding you attend!

 

Etsy

 

This site is an amazing place to find incredibly unique and special pieces.  Stocked entirely by independent retailers – you can pick up really distinct pieces that you can’t find anywhere else.  Seriously – type anything you want into the search bar and it’ll come up (well almost!)
