Sunday was the perfect day… Lazy coffee morning in front of Sunday Brunch, dressing up for the hell of it, and taking a spontaneous trip to my favourite hidden shopping gems in South West LDN to see what bargains I might find… What more can you ask for?!
Parsons Green is the answer to my prayers…think charity shops, but not your average mothball- smelling-old-ladies-castoffs. Instead picture treasure troves fit to burst with designer goodies donated from Fulham’s finest ladies and you got it! You think I’m joking…I kid you not.
My first stop is always Fara on New Kings Road. It’s not unusual to pick up a pair of killer Acne boots for under 100 quid or a patent Versace mac for £75! This weekend I wasn’t quite so Lucky but I thought I’d share my secret with you anyway!
Next stop is my best and most frequented find of all time-Deuxieme.
Deuxieme is a treasure trove of good as new designer clothing and accessories! No rummaging required, this place is wall to wall rails of beautifully arranged designer finds.
What sets this boutique apart from the rest is its careful selection of second hand seasonal pieces that are not only on trend but for half the original price! Deuxieme welcome sellers to drop buy with pieces they no longer wear, and offer to sell them for 50% less than the RRP- the sellers get 50% of the sale and Deuxieme make a 50% commission. It’s pretty impressive stuff and I am blown away time and time again by the quality of pieces you can pick up at bargain prices!
