A resident of England has discovered a way to buy expensive luxury clothing brands for next to nothing. The relevant material is published by The Sun.
Becky Hughes, 24, from Wolverhampton, has ditched fast fashion altogether (a term used by fashion retailers to refer to the brand’s rapid assortment refresh several times a season – approx. “Tapes. RU”) and started buying clothes exclusively from thrift stores and thrift stores.
According to the heroine of the material, in four years she managed to save more than three thousand pounds (about 300 thousand rubles) thanks to a new approach to shopping. During this time, the girl managed to buy many designer items, including the top of the Valentino fashion house for four pounds (407 rubles).
“I’m much happier now. I used to spend £ 20 (RUR 2035) a week on a new outfit to go out. Now I spend a maximum of £ 10 (1017 rubles) per month. I just wash second-hand clothes and wear them with pleasure, ”she said.
The girl admitted that she could have taken a picture in a new item of clothing for Instagram before and then stopped wearing it, since all her acquaintances had already seen her in this image. “Now, when I go shopping, I wonder if this or that item will be combined with the clothes that I already have,” explained Hughes.
In addition, the girl began selling unwanted clothes on the Internet on her own. Since 2018, she has earned about 2,000 pounds sterling (about 200 thousand rubles) from this. “I hate the idea of things ending up in a landfill, so I love selling them. I advise you to put up for sale things that are idle in your wardrobe, ”advised the Englishwoman.
In April 2021, girls massively discovered luxury brand clothing in second-hand stores for next to nothing. Residents of the UK began filming videos with stories of their good purchases in second-hand stores, posting them with the hashtag #charityshophauls.
