From setting up alerts for the (old) Celine boots that I just can’t track down anywhere to sifting through some really fantastic designer vintage pieces, Vestiaire Collective not only holds a huge volume of authenticated stock, but it also knows how to make things smoother and faster for a busy girl.
As there are so many pieces online that it’s a good idea to have some parameters of what you’re looking for. Even if it’s that you know you want a coat in a particular colour in a set size, setting filters will help you trawl through the product offering. I use it to pinpoint the items I missed out on the first time around, such as the aforementioned Celine boots. However, the site also has dresses, jewellery and outerwear.
Because items are shot by sellers from their own homes and probably on their own phones, the product imagery can be difficult to decipher or see clearly at times. So, unless you have hours to burn, I’d suggest using VC for when you know exactly what you want to track down, like a Dior monogrammed bag or that specific Rejina Pyo skirt from a particular season.
Many influencers both buy and sell on VC, so it’s a good idea to check out its Sellers Series content on-site and also the #bestofvest hashtag on Instagram for inspiration.
