Buy My Wardrobe fashion event

5 Sep

Saturday morning saw two of us (Hannah and Katie) heading into central London to attend the Buy My Wardrobe event. Held at the Adam Street Members club, the event brought together lots of people with lots of surplus clothing to sell – some were stylists, some were collectors, and some just had too many clothes and needed more wardrobe space.

We were running very late for the bloggers’ preview and got there just as the doors opened to the VIP ticket holders.

The place was overwhelmed with people for about 10 minutes and then strangely emptied out. We reckoned the early bird ticket holders are probably semi-professional at these events – go in, find the good stuff, get out. When we first arrived it was so crowded you couldn’t really get to the clothing racks, and the venue was absolutely baking, but ten minutes later, when the professional shopping types left, it was much more relaxed.

Even more relaxing once we had had a glass of complimentary champagne.

There were a lot of nice things on offer, most of which were way, way cheaper than they would be in store. Some of the items were a bit random (dress from H&M? New Look trousers?), but most was designer or vintage.

Hannah fell in love with a Mulberry bag. In John Lewis the same bag costs £850, but here it was just £300. Still a lot of money, but almost a third of the retail price.There was also a gorgeous Prada bag that tempted both of us.

Katie, meanwhile, tried on a wedding dress (too poufy) and fell in love with a white skirt with a studded waist.

Sadly, neither of us is blessed with any spare cash at the minute, so we both walked away empty handed. But if you are in the market for some pre-loved (but often not worn at all) designer shoes or clothes, this is a great way to get them.

Thanks to Julia for inviting us. If you would like to find out more about Buy My Wardrobe, including when the next events are, visit their website.
