Perth Happenings recently came to visit Second Time Around and what a feature! Direct link to the original blog below.
Have you heard of circular fashion?
I hadn't either until I went on an amazing tour of Perth- 'Shopportunity Knocks" (But that's a whole other blog!). The idea of circular fashion is that rather than buying cheap fashion that is thrown away after a season, you purchase high quality pieces that will last the test of time. Additionally, rather than having to fill our land fill with unnecessary waste, on-selling quality items and purchasing other quality items that have been pre-loved.
This whole concept I misunderstood as the idea of op shopping. Oh no. The moment I entered Second Time Around in North Perth I knew that I had found a place that was my new fashion home.
This is taken directly from their website-
"STA exclusively stocks Designer Women’s Wear on consignment.
We take all the work out of privately selling your pieces on EBay Gumtree and Facebook. Bring us your fabulous pieces that are taking up space in your wardrobe or that you no longer wear.
With over 40 years of Business in Perth (EST.74), we have a very valued clientele base and love creating strong and lasting relationships with our clients. We are 100% transparent with out clients and offer a system online to log into your account and track your sales."
STA stocks only the best and most trusted quality brands and they sell clothing, shoes and accessories. If the idea of purchasing a Gucci bag at a fraction of the price doesn't get you excited I will tell you will- you can shop online. Yes, designer fashion, bargain prices and online availability with the option of free shipping. Seriously, who knew such a magic place existed.
If you are like me and love to go in, try on clothes, see if they are what you truly want then you will love the store. With an easy layout and a special second story with heavily discounted items (see my photo of shoes below- so dangerous!) you will be able to buy something perfect for you and be in love without any guilt!
The key component of STA for me though is the customer service. As a bigger girl I often walk into boutiques and assume I'll be judged and laughed out the door as they only stock up to a size 12, but not the case here! The mother/daughter team who are just the most beautiful humans you will ever meet, take the time to make you feel like each and every person who walks through the door feels important. I was embraced and had items brought to my attention that suited me, my style and my shape. Talk about service. It is superb for me that sizes beyond a 14 are catered for here. I purchased a gorgeous Review dress that is now a wardrobe staple and I am in love with and for such a bargain. On Saturdays they even have champagne for the clients - are you sold yet?
Here is my purchase from one weekend of shoes. This collection above cost me less than $250 and there are some phenomenal brands in there like Guess. It is lucky I have lots of cupbard space!
If you have an eye for fashion and love helping our environment AND your purse then head on over tohttps://www.secondtime.com.au/ and peruse their current collections.
