At Lux Second Chance we strongly believe and champion authenticity. It is a core value of our company. The counterfeit fashion market has long been reported as an economical, social and cultural problems. In this article we want to discuss why it is so bad! We will discuss not only the criminal activity of deceptive counterfeiting, including a theft of intellectual property, tax evasion and even funding of terrorist activities, but we are also going to discuss a customer and their motive, who still purchases the counterfeit item consciously, “non deceptively”.

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Posted by TESSA HALL

Is investing in the cards for your future? Does that sound totally dry and really not something you’ve thought about in-depth? Once upon a time (when our parents were young adults and thinking about their first investments) you’d have to go into a bank, talk in great lengths to some generic-looking man and try and remember all the jargon words being tossed around like diversification, bonds, dividends, and volatility. Well, times have changed, in a big way! 

Love fashion? Great at scouting out a deal? Then maybe your type of smart investment lies in the resale luxury market.

One of the people who has an enduring influence on fashion, handbags in particular, even decades after her death is Princess Diana. Her sense of style has always inspired designers and artists; she used fashion as her armour and weapon and still today her style is appealing to a new generation of fashionistas who learn about Lady Di through their icons like Rihanna, Hailey Bieber, Off-White’s designer Virgil Abloh, Instagram and the latest season of a TV-show  “The Crown”.

9 Tips for Holiday Shopping in COVID Times

9 Tips for Holiday Shopping in COVID Times

Posted by TESSA HALL

We refuse to use the words “strange,” “unprecedented,” or “uncertain” one more time in 2020! But when describing this year’s holiday shopping season, let’s just say it will be like none other before in the history of holiday shopping! Mad dashes to the mall are highly discouraged, extended store hours are likely not to happen, and complete hassle-free shipping is something we can only dream about. However, going into the holiday season, there are still ways to prepare yourself as best as you can. We’ve compiled a list of nine things to keep in mind as we head through November and soon enough, December. Remember, nabbing the perfect gift for everyone on your Christmas list always feels like a home-run, but this year let’s prioritize everyone’s safety above all else!

Has that tube of mascara you bought in March lasted you into the fall? It’s okay! That’s where we’re at too!

Let’s take the shame out of low-maintenance looks and let’s embrace this new normal for what it has to offer: functional and fashionable alternatives!

9 Ways to Actively Fight Anti-Black Racism In Fashion

9 Ways to Actively Fight Anti-Black Racism In Fashion

Posted by TESSA HALL

If you’re like us, you’ve been reflecting, listening, and educating yourself on the current racial injustices in the world. This was sparked by the brutal murder of George Floyd in the United States and the associating protests that have happened as a result of that. We, as a world, have been made aware (again!) to the grim reality that still faces a large population of our world, simply based on the color of their skin. This MUST change and this must change now. Colonialism and its damaging effects have been a part of North American culture for over 400 years now. It affects every industry and every sector of our society. Nothing is free of the effects of racism still happening today, and the fashion industry is most definitely a part of that.

After celebrating Earth Day and looking forward to Mother’s Day, it is about time we discuss Mother Nature and how we can help her. Scrolling through social media, filled with past travels and one-wear #ootds, it seemed like the meaning of Earth Day was misinterpreted and lost. This is why we have to take actions in order to protect our Mother Nature from disastrous climate change and destruction. In this month's blog post, we will discuss how we can easily do it and what role companies like Lux Second Chance play in this.
