Monday Musings: Designer Goods

As you've probably noticed, I've been pretty busy lately. Aside from finishing my lingerie project, and working on a couple other side projects, I've recently started an internship with an awesome resale company called Mine & Yours.
It's located downtown Vancouver in this cute shop
Designer trifecta
Sigh... Kenzo. Remember their Vans X Kenzo collob?
 If you read the Monday Musings post on Clothes That Fit, you'll remember that I'm working on simplifying my closet with more quality instead of quantity. Mine & Yours is the perfect store for this sort of attitude. Resale is sort of like consignment, except that you get cash up front for items that you are donating (30% of suggested retail price in cash, or 50% of retail price in store credit). They carry everything from Zara to Chanel, gently used to brand new (aka it's my retail match made in Heaven).
Burberry dress, Marc Jacobs and Celine bags.... yep I like it here
 They basically have first pick of the city, as customers want to sell to Mine & Yours before anybody else due to their cash up front policy and amazing collection (might as well make a lucrative trade while you're there). I've only worked in-store for one day so far, but I already love it so much. I touched more designer items in my one day of work, than the rest of my life combined (sad truth!).
These are my bosses, I can already tell they're great, can't you?
The best part about the store is that it is very well curated. You don't have to guess if you'll find something when you go there, because you know there will be good pickings. They only accept items that they would personally wear, or that their friends would wear. And boy is it a quality library of goodies! If you wanna check out their website, click here.
Speaking of designer goods, have you guys been keeping up with fashion week (month)? Milan ends today and Paris starts tomorrow! So dang exciting, I've been loving the collections- specifically: MBMJ, Karen Walker, Dolce & Gabbana, and Mara Hoffman, but I haven't seen all of them, and some of the best are yet to come- Chanel! Louis Vuitton! Alexander McQueen! Miu Miu! I have a Pinterest board where I update my favs of the season if you want to follow along, or see them for yourself at

I'm so stoked on this new opportunity and I can't wait to see where it takes me (and my wardrobe haha).
Thanks for reading!
