Where To Find The Designer Piece That Got Away
If you’ve ever kicked yourself for not splurging on that bygone Hermes cuff, Chloe bag or Saint Laurent jacket, consider this your second chance: Online luxury consignment boutique Vestiaire Collective has just launched “The One That Got Away,” a feature that acts as the style set’s equivalent to a Craigslist Missed Connections forum. How so, you ask? Shoppers can submit a “wish form” describing the item they’re searching for, which is distributed among Vestiaire’s global community of users. If a seller happens to own and is willing to part with the desired item, voilà—a match is made in fashion heaven. To ensure the customer is getting the real deal, each piece in authenticated before any transaction happens, so no connection is too good to be true. (Hallelujah!) Prepare your pocketbooks—this service just might be the ultimate cure to un-buyers remorse.
