..Well not mine personally, it’s rubbish, but the wardrobes of people who don’t hate their clothes every 5 minutes and threaten suicide.
Buy My Wardrobe is a fashion recycling event with a difference – most of the products for sale are things that you actually want to buy! No out-of-shape, out-of-date tat from the bottom of a musty closet, but an impressive array of high quality goods, designer, hand-made and vintage, all under one roof and all at heavily discounted prices. It’s not every day you’re offered a Balenciaga Lariat in perfect condition and at half price (sadly, half price was still half a price too much for my cobwebbed pockets…).

I had a bit of a love affair with this red Luella bag…
Being completely inept at shopping meant that despite loitering around the aforementioned Luella bag, trying to force myself to fit into a gorgeous pair of black satin and diamanté Chanel T bar heels (1 size too small) and piling on armfuls of jewellery, I still managed to leave empty handed. What is wrong with me?
And did I mention that there was not only champagne but cupcakes? Sustenance was vital for keeping up energry levels during some frantic browsing and I might have needed more than one (ok, I admit it, I had 3!! Happy now!?!)
