Write it down in your agenda, babes: AW20 marks the renaissance of the vintage monogrammed bags. Dior, Gucci, Fendi, Guess, Louis Vuitton, all the brands are reviving this late 90s ✰ early 00s classic. Every cool girl on Instagram is head over heels in love with this it-bag and with good reason. A monogrammed bag spices up every and any look.

My faves are the monogrammed baguette and saddle bags.

And of course, I thought: I could thrift this.


In the thrift shops I did find some vintage treasures in the bags section but, alas, no luck with a monogrammed bag in good condition. So, I turned to online second-hand platforms.


On the app Vinted I found 2 absolutely gorgeous Guess bags. For these two, I paid €10, excluding shipping. Both bags are in very good condition, they just needed a little Monica Geller-type of love, and they were like new again.


I love their sizes, the logo pattern and the soft fall/winter colors. Merci, Caro from France: you the real MVP.

You know that feeling when you've been searching thrift shops for MONTHS trying to find that one perfect item? Well, me too, girl.

I searched in thrift shops far and wide for the perfect silk blouse. 🤞🏼 This weekend: I hit the jackpot.


Tucked away between the sleepwear racks, I found this silk blouse. Its flower print is simple but, in my opinion, adds the right amount of class to the deep V-neck. Being a pyjama it feels like a breeze on the skin, it's the comfort you wish every blouse had.


It's a little detail but I love how the little white, silk border on the bottom of the sleeves.


Best thing? The price. 💸


For only €2, I finally have a long-time favorite hanging in my closet. What do you think of my newest thrift find: adorable or is it back on the sleepwear rack for you?
