You may remember seeing these in my birthday presents post a couple of weeks ago, they are my new Chloe Burgundy Platform Ankle Booties! They aren’t brand new as such though as I did purchase them at a second hand sale, but they are in almost new condition. I bought them as a birthday present to myself from a Fashion Bloodhound sale in Bath at the St. Francis Hotel. They are a company that’s local to me and they source designer clothes and accessories that are pre-owned and then sell them at pop up shops and online. They had some amazing pieces there from Isabel Marant, Mulberry, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and many more designers, but I couldn’t afford any of the big pieces. I really only wanted these Chloe boots though after I found them. As soon as I saw them, I loved them. Naturally I was attracted to them as they are burgundy, but they aren’t too high because of the platform either, so they are easy to walk in. I do have the box and they originally came from Net-A-Porter some years ago.
When it comes to finding boots for myself, I usually like to pick boots that have a thicker heel and a comfortable platform, and boots that are not too steep, so I can walk around in them without feeling much pain, so these definitely fall into that criteria. Have any of you bought second hand clothes or shoes before? I used to have a thing about it, but I usually just clean up everything that I have purchased (which isn’t new) and it’s good to go. It’s also a great way to get money for your old clothes if you choose to sell them, like I do quite often. I have got some amazing deals in the past when buying clothes that aren’t new, and it’s also a way for me to make money when I need to let things go that don’t fit me anymore or just don’t suit me, so I think it’s great to get the fashion items you want at a much lower price. But anyway, what do you think of my boots? Do you like them? Comment and let me know!
