It's that time of the year again. Shopping lists are getting larger and our ideas are running out! Not sure what to get mom who deserves it all or that colleague who does so much for you throughout the year? We have you covered at Lux Second Chance with gifts that not only fit all budgets, but ideas that will for sure receive genuine gasps of excitement upon receiving!
To inspire your gift ideas further, we’ve assembled fabulous looks that can be completed with great holiday finds from Lux Second Chance!
The dinners with family or friends seem endless during the holiday season (but we’re not complaining). Christmas dinners are the traditional times we spend sharing stories, eating great meals, playing games, and, of course, exchanging gifts. Why not add to a special someone’s Christmas dinner ensemble by gifting them the perfect pair of Chanel pearl earrings? Or, better yet, the classic quilted Chanel flap bag to complete any holiday look! Of course every winter outfit can use a new pair of black leather ankle booties. For extra brownie points, go with the ones with red bottoms! ;)

Want to instantly impress your boss or colleagues this holiday season? These gift ideas will surely dazzle anyone receiving them, or complete your look in order to rock the office Christmas party. All of these classic pieces will add enough pizzazz to bring any sharp suit up a notch. Need a statement necklace to take this look from day to night? This Lanvin necklace with pearls and charms would get the job done! Adding classic pieces like this Gucci Dionysus black suede flap bag, and Valentino studded pumps bring a level of spunky sophistication to the look. Of course, a classic lady-suit look wouldn’t be complete without a drool-worthy timepiece. This beautiful black Hermès watch will keep you on time for the party (unless you'd prefer to show up fashionably late)!

Yes, party looks are always fun, but there’s so much joy to be had in the snow this season! Here are some gift ideas that will add warmth and style to any winter look. A scarf is always a thoughtful holiday gift, but a luxurious Louis Vuitton cashmere scarf in rich red would take your gift-giving skills to the next level! Paired with Saint Laurent leather boots, you’d complete any warm winter look with these fabulous accessories. Finally, this deep cherry red, patent leather bag by Dior is a festive way to add a pop of colour to any holiday ensemble!

What’s always the party of the year and conveniently concludes a major gift-giving season? New Year’s Eve, of course! A thoughtful and practical approach to smart gift-giving is to get someone a fabulous piece that they can show-off at a New Year’s Eve party. A little glitz and glamour is what we do best at Lux Second Chance, and do we have some great finds for you! This statement leopard print clutch from YSL with rose gold rhinestones pairs perfectly with this party dress. Topping it off with a little bling from Chanel is always a great gift idea and a subtle way to add classic pieces to this party look. Complete with the perfect Manolo dancing shoes, you’d be the envy of everyone at the party!

Let’s be honest; everyone is dying to get away this winter! Is someone on your shopping list chasing the sun following the holiday season? What better way to get them something they really want and deserve than with these fabulous vacation finds! Make sure everyone is jealous of their beach look by gifting them these amazing Chanel accessories: a printed beach bag, a classic “CC” beach towel, and beautiful sea blue bangle. While we are talking ultimate luxury, these bright blue Hermès sandals will surely give them Instagram-worthy feet photos while they lounge poolside or on the sand.

If you’re an avid Luxer, you may recognize this face as our fearless leader, founder, and CEO of Lux Second Chance, Diana Nguyen. If you’re new to the blog, then let me introduce you to the determined entrepreneur, passionate eco-conscious shopper, part-time Torontorian, part-time Parisan, and Chanel fanatic behind the success of Canada’s biggest consignment aggregating shopping platform.
Ahead of International Women’s Day, I wanted to talk to Diana about her journey as a female entrepreneur, CEO, and all around boss babe (I still cringe at this term, but I haven’t found a replacement for it). Let’s get her talking!

As we putter through January, it’s not too late to set your goals and resolutions for 2021! We’re talking in particular about fashion-related goals that are not only good for you and the environment, but also feasible enough that you can make them your All Year resolutions, as opposed to a New Year’s resolution.
Society as a whole, consumes fashion at an astonishing rate; similar to the way we consume food, media, and entertainment. This is why it is more important than ever to be intentional with your purchasing habits and your relationship with your wardrobe. Here are our top eight ways to get you there!

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.
