A Visit to the Buy My Wardrobe Sale in Notting Hill



On Saturday I attended the Buy My Wardrobe shopping event at the 20th Century Theatre in Notting Hill. I had no idea what a treat I was in for - table after table of high-end lightly used (some pieces never used) high-end fashion at bargainista-friendly prices!

 

The showroom was laid out beautifully and if you're a magpie like me, you'll love attending these events just for the sheer enjoyment of seeing so many beautiful things all in one place!

 

Some sellers are businesses that specialise in vintage or consignment type sales of gently used designer fashions while others are women who happen to have amazing wardrobes bursting at the seams and are looking to shed a bit of weight from their closets. It's really a fabulous idea and it promotes recycling instead of just chucking things in the bin, so it's eco-friendly too!


There were plenty of drinks on hand and masseuses available to give weary shoppers a neck massage!


 


CittyKitty were on hand with drinks and membership offers.



 

 

Because there are several sellers at the Buy My Wardrobe event, there's no shortage of gorgeous shoes and clothes in multiple sizes! It's actually a really great way to vintage shop, especially if you're a hard-to-find size in either shoes or clothes.

Here are some more photos of the event:



 


 

 







 


 


 

You can sign up for the Buy My Wardrobe newsletter to find out about the next event by clicking here. The events usually require a ticket for entry and the prices depend on what time you'd like to enter. First entry is the most expensive and in this instance, included champagne and first look at the merchandise. Usually the final entry during the last hour or two of the sale is free. You aren't allowed to take bags into the sale with you, though a bag check is provided, but if you're ultra-prepared, leave a bulky handbag at home and just bring your wallet!


On May 30th, Buy My Wardrobe are participating in a Diamond Jubilee street party event that looks like lots of fun! Check out the website for more information.

You may be interested to know as well that I walked away from the sale with a lovely Pucci scarf for only £25 - that's what I call a bargain!
