Outfits: When Someone Else Pays Full Price First (EN)

If you have been reading our blog you might know that Marlene is our vintage shopping Queen. Jule and me are beginners. We both had the picture in mind that vintage shopping only means that you have to dig through piles over piles of old and worn out clothes which are either not in our size or out of style. Marlene proved us wrong by taking us to a vintage shopping date in The City! This was an eye opening event for Jule and me! We found unique original vintage dresses from the 20s, brand new/almost new designer pieces (50%-80% off from the original price) or some really nice treasures. You just need to know where to go.

Now three outfits with our vintage finds. All from:

Marlene’s sweater
I probably don’t need another sweater in grey. But with the weather getting colder, everything looking cozy and warm gets my attention. Wool is my favorite material to wear for the whole winter. Especially the sweater that found me. Grey is always in style, the relaxed shape and the soft wool makes this sweater comfortable and chic at the same time; I just love it!

Sweater: Vintage JCrew
Shorts: Vintage Theory
Boots: Marc O´Polo (old)
Sunglasses: Kiomi (old)

Jule’s coat
This coat would have never caught my attention. Probably because its not black! My favorite color of all time even though I know that my mom and friends are tired of seeing me wearing black. Marlene picked this coat for me and luckily she could convince me to try it on. Ever since I am truly in love with this coat. Yes, surprisingly I love the color. I love the shape, material and simply everything about it.

Meng’s sandals
When I saw this UNWORN pair of sandals I got seriously excited. I am picky when it comes to sandals. They need to have excellent quality, looking stunning on its own and make my short legs look longer. Most importantly, I need to be able to walk (a bit) in them. All requirements are fulfilled by these pair of Brian Atwood shoes. Brian Atwood shoes are heavy investment pieces. It made my day that these shoes were discounted by 80% and mainly because its in size 6 (36.5). I was never happier about the size of my feet.
