Conscious Edits - Used Luxury Black and Metal outfit for Summer

Conscious Edits - Used Luxury Black and Metal outfit for Summer

"The most responsible thing you can do with buying clothes is, number one, buy used clothes. The damage has been done in making them. That’s the most responsible thing." - Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia.

Yvon Chouinard is one of the most inspiring businessmen who founded Patagonia in 1973. While I love his philosophy and Patagonia in general, I know I can't shop everything from Patagonia. When I get an itch or a need to shop for something new, I check out sustainable brands as well as used clothing sites like Vestiaire Collective and Tradesy. 

Vestiaire Collective is my favorite site to browse for used luxury designer items. It's a peer to peer marketplace which means I am shopping directly from other super chic members from places like Italy and France. Because it's peer to peer, I can ask questions and negotiate price(!!!).  Many items are from Europe, however, and returns are not easy. The shipping takes time as well, which reminds me that 1-2 day free shipping is not free at all!

Black is an essential color that gets a bad rap in Summer, but it certainly makes any outfit classic and chic. Mixed with navy fabrics, Jacquemus top and skirt would go perfectly with clean, black accessories with a hint of a gold.
