This by far my favorite vintage piece in my wardrobe, this stunning vintage Alexander McQueen ruffled blouse. And guess what? I digged and digged, and found it on Vestiaire Collective, a market place for pre-owned luxury designer fashion that you can’t find anywhere else, at an amazing value. It actually is pure thrill when I shop their website. I get to sell items from my own closet as well as get access to incredible closets of the world’s most stylish women. Authenticity is important to Vestiaire and believe me, they sell a ton of luxury goods from Chanel, to Saint Laurent, as well as Celine, Prada, and so much more. Every single item is checked both for quality and authenticity before it’s shipped out to the buyer. I like knowing that the Vestiaire Collective holds such high standards for both the buyers and sellers when it comes to the product. Now about this amazing Alexander McQueen… When I start getting onto Vestiaire, I sit on my couch and flip through pages and pages of product. I checked the clock, and nearly 2 hours had passed. Once I start, I can’t stop. The hunt for incredible and unique new statement pieces for fall is super fun. I stumbled up this ruffled beauty and was taken into a Victorian dreamworld. The sleeves. The details! So intricate. Fit for a queen. It could double as both a perfect Halloween costume from medieval times, yet also works perfectly for a casual day at brunch off Abbot Kinney here in LA with a great pair of trousers. It’s versatile. It’s timeless. It’s a work of art! And when I received it, it was in such perfect condition and fit exactly right and true to size. I wish I knew more of the story behind the blouse, but it must have been hung elegantly in a glamorous closet in it’s hometown of Paris. I’m glad to be bringing it back to life. vintage Alexander Mcqueen blouse from Vestiaire Collective TAGS: Alexander McQueen, Vestiaire Collective, Vintage
