The iconic French brand, Goyard, has become a staple in the luxury handbag game. Purposefully understated, the recognizable Goyard tote is oftentimes the leading contender against the market favourite Louis Vuitton Neverfull. 

The proudly, privately owned company is notorious for being even more exclusive than its competitors. The brand’s limited number of boutiques helps Goyard bags and other goods retain their high value on the resale market.

Celebrities, They're Just Like Us! Rewear Edition

Posted by DIANA NGUYEN

Don’t you feel especially validated when you see celebrities doing something that would otherwise seem incredibly mainstream for us mere mortals? That’s how we feel about the rising trend of celebrities outfit repeating on the red carpet. The world of celebrity is progressively catching on to the rest of the world’s efforts towards sustainability and eco-friendly fashion. More and more we are seeing A-listers opting for sustainable choices when it comes to red carpet looks. Whether that be in the form of the old fashion faux pas “outfit repeating” or selecting pre-existing vintage looks–either way this is an overdue and welcomed evolution.

Airport Essentials Ready for Take Off!

Posted by TESSA HALL

Let’s face it, we are all ready to get as far away from home as humanly possible! With COVID-19 restrictions lifting across the globe, two (or three) shots of the vaccine in our arms, and a savings account that screams, “I’ve been staying home for the past two years!”, the world is ready for travel again! And we’re not just talking about a weekend away in a charming town in our state, province, or surrounding area. We’re talking about jet setting to a warmer climate. Escaping to a destination unknown.

It’s no longer a surprise, or a trend, or a niche for corporate fashion brands to get on board with sustainability efforts. Many would argue it’s gone into hyperdrive, and honestly, we love to see it! Of course, these efforts come after years and years of experts shouting from the rooftops that we can no longer avoid climate change. It's already having it’s devastating and tangible impacts on many parts of the world. 

Although this is grim news, there are real positive strides being taken by the fashion industry, as they are the second most polluting industry in the world after oil.

If you’re a loyal Chanel fan, then you’re already aware that the iconic brand has once again increased their prices of styles, like the Chanel 19 Small Bag, up by 10% as of July 1, 2021.

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.

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!
