Shop my style on Depop
I've spoken before about the Depop app, which is basically a cross between eBay and Instagram. I started off using it just to sell a few bits and pieces from my wardrobe, and I have continued to use it to buy as well as to sell. There seems to be a great selection of vintage on the site, and I've found some fantastic, friendly vintage sellers who have amazing stock there. My favourite is @catseyesvintage who dabbles in denim and leopard print, amongst lots of other things - what's not to love!
Since setting up my capsule wardrobe, I've found I have much less to sell because, in reality, I'm buying much less. Focusing on key things that I love, and actually need, has negated the 'fast fashion' mindset that I used to shop with. Indeed, visiting a shop and buying clothing is something that has become quite obsolete to me lately, and when I did head into town on Saturday for a new store opening, I bought about 5 items but will be returning over half of those. I have become much more of a considered shopper and as such my wardrobe has become a little more static.
There are, of course, items that I've bought but never worn, or worn maybe a couple of times but aren't quite right somehow, and this is where Depop comes in. Easy to use and a great way of networking with other bloggers and fashionistas, it's definitely become my go-to for inspiration in a lot of ways, similarly to early-days Instagram. Many sellers are open to offers and also fairly happy to do bundle deals if you see more than one thing you like from them - if you are sensible and polite, and don't expect them to accept unreasonable offers, you can often find some real bargains.
