This is the time of year when I start thinking about my spring/ summer wardrobe. I have always had a de-clutter twice a year, at the start of spring and autumn, sorting by what still fits, is worn out or that I just don't like any more. However this year, after my style consultation with Emily Jayne where I defined my personal style (have you defined your personal style?), there are a lot more clothes and accessories that will be leaving my wardrobe. But what are our options if we have designer or high end high street clothes that are still in an excellent condition and want to sell? Well it's quite timely that I saw a tweet from BuyMyWardrobe announcing they were coming to Birmingham (Nuvo, Brindley Place) on Saturday 14th April. I've been aware of BuyMyWardrobe since last year and thought it a fabulous idea. Up until now all of the events have been held in London, being highly regarded in the fashion industry, so I think it's great that they have chosen Birmingham as their first none London location.
If you regularly update your wardrobe and have items that you no longer use or wear, to me it makes perfect sense to sell them so you can make space for your new season purchases. What I love about the concept is that you are the seller, getting your own stall where you can sell your pre-loved designer, boutique, vintage and high end high street clothes and accessories.
Even if you haven't got anything to sell what a great way to find a designer bargain and have a day out with your girlfriends. For those of us who like the VIP treatment then you can have a champagne preview an hour before the event starts, giving you the opportunity to beat the crowds. If you feel you need a little extra help in finding the perfect item, one of Birmingham's top stylists Beth Goodrham will be on hand to offer style advice and personal shopping.
As you know I am partial to afternoon tea and what better way to enyoy a girls day out than combining shopping and afternoon tea. Throughout the day Nuvo will be serving afternoon tea, including freshly-made sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, and the selection of mini pastries and tartlets.
Tickets are already on sale for the April event at Buy My Wardrobe.
What better way to get the designer wardrobe you have always wanted.......at a price that's right!
