In this look, which we shot in Amsterdam between trips, I’m wearing a jacket by Storets. I love the pink color and the ruffles make it so much fun. I combined it with a funky lobster tee and jeans, both from H&M and paired it with my favorite glittery Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. I love the golden zipper detail and most importantly, they are super comfortable to wear. I added my new Dalmation Cluse watch and some of my favorite rings and not to miss… My new treasure: the vintage Chanel single flap jumbo Bag.
Since every vintage piece has a soul of its own and comes with its own story or mystery, I love the character of pre-owned items. I wonder about the places someone visited with the piece, the journey it has been on and the stories it would tell if it could talk.
But the hunt for top quality vintage designer pieces can be quite cumbersome, so it’s my pleasure to invite you to the world of online vintage: Rebelle. A quality platform where you can find and sell second-hand luxury items, Rebelle offers an impressive selection of luxury brands like Gucci, Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton and many more. Aside from the fact that great vintage pieces are usually conversation starters and solid investments, it’s almost as if life gives you a second chance to find that piece that’s not for sale anymore and you kicked yourself for not buying!
It’s is also very easy to sell your own “pre-loved” pieces on Rebelle. At the moment my wardrobe is overflowing with items I haven’t worn for ages, so it is high time for a serious closet clean out. If you are looking to detox your wardrobe and earn some extra funding for new investment pieces, head to their website to get started and become a seller on Rebelle.
When I was browsing all the lovely classic designer pieces on Rebelle, I had an incredibly difficult time settling on just one favorite. A vintage Chanel bag has been on my wish list since forever and they are great investment pieces, that remain their value over time. It was love at first sight between me and this Jumbo Chanel flab bag, even though it shows some signs of wear. I love the fact that Rebelle has clear pictures of the imperfections, so I knew what to expect. When I unwrapped it, the bag looked exactly like it did in the pictures, perhaps even better!
I find it important to note that unlike sites like eBay, Rebelle acts as an authentication portal. This means that a team of experts rigorously checks each and every product for authenticity, condition and quality, making sure the items aren’t counterfeits, before sending them out to the buyers.
Happy treasure hunting at Rebelle! x Merel
