You know when you've wanted something for like, ever? When you've been searching high and low, eBay and Etsy, depop and Vestiaire and then one day it just shows up....in your size...and not forcing you to sell a limb to fund it? Yeah, that.
I've been searching for this dungaree playsuit by Stella McCartney for the best part of seven years. Ever since I saw a certain long limbed, messy bobbed, cool AF gal sporting it back in 2011 (ish?) I knew i needed it in my life. It's just the dream. The perfect blue denim, the perfect cut, just the perfect summer dungaree situation. Oh my god I'm obsessed. Can you tell? I've spoke in the past about that want list of mine containing all the items of lust from seasons gone by, well this was right up there at the top. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Vestiaire for bringing this piece into my life. I've been an avid fan of their luxe resale online store since way back when ( I think i signed up for an account in 2013 if were going for precision) but this is actually only the second thing I've ever purchased. The first was a Sandro check Peter Pan collar coat that I absolutely loved, so yeah, thanks for that too guys. However I am on the app most days. I've got many an alert set up for all those important things in life like a mansur Gavriel circle bag, some vintage Chanel pumps, anything realisation par and y'know that Chanel Breton stripe tee... I also seem to have a favourites list longer than a fortnight. I love the hunt, the wonder of what I might discover and actually, the fact that buying and selling second hand and vintage is helping the planet and my conscience. I love a garm with a story, designer vintage, something a bit rare, and where better to hunt than Vestiaire collective really? It's a yes(tiaire) from me. Rachael x
