After a recent spout of insane finds at a selection of Zurich's second hand shops I've decided to pass some of these items on... I hunted through the best shops in the city today with my partner in crime (pictured in the first photo) and grabbed the two pieces I thought were the most spot on for this season, next season... and quite frankly every season to come. I'm talking luxury iconic items for a fraction of what they should be selling for. Desirable not because of their designer names (although they do constantly make me feel light headed) but, more importantly, their rarity and wearability.

The two chosen pieces are a 100% silk Gucci cream shirt and yellow Celine small bag. These are both being listed on ebay with the starting price of 79.99. Personally, I think everybody should have a bit of luxury in their wardrobe... but think paying the insane prices for new items is insanely unrealistic for most of us (myself included). Which is why I'm starting the Gucci shirt off at 79.99 (new Gucci shirts are currently on Net a Porter for between 500-900 GBP) and the Celine bag at 79.99 as well (new Celine handbags retail at 2,000 GBP)... I have no clue what these will sell for but if I make a profit I'll put that money back into finding more pieces that I can sell again to you guys for a fraction of the price.

The motivation for doing this? At the moment I've got the time and resources to find amazing second hand pieces for reasonable prices and have been feeling disillusioned and disgruntled by the obnoxious mark ups of secondhand/vintage shops in London. Mmmmkay? So, happy bidding and do a girl a favour and spread the word about this. The more I can make from selling these the more items I can find for you... which, let's be honest, is a pretty fun way to spend a day.

Please note: this post has been amended due to the complications of selling items over Twitter (which I had originally intended to do). A link to my ebay account will be provided over Twitter and on my Facebook Page soon, incase you are interested in either of these items.
