Buy My Wardrobe blitz

A quick post to celebrate the fact that in two days’ time my home will be tidy and my cupboards bare.

Well, not quite, but I am clearing out my closet. I do it for my clients – help them to get rid of the things that once worked beautifully but don’t anymore – and now it’s my turn.

I invest in clothes for the long-term, so my cherished pieces are things I bought many seasons (or decades) ago. I hope to still be wearing those in my old age, if my girls haven’t wrestled them from me (they are already deciding who gets what when I die). However, I also own lots of random things I was given when I was working as a stylist on shoots. Add to that designer samples, vintage pieces that I buy for research and things I’ve bought to ‘beef up’ my wardrobe each year – and it amounts to a mountain of quite wonderful stuff – that I am selling this Saturday (17th October 2015) at the Buy My Wardrobe event at The Roof Gardens in Kensington.

It’s a ticket-only event (tickets available from www.buymywardrobe.com). There are lots of lovely sellers with lovely things and a percentage of the money generated goes to the Syrian Refugees.

On my stand you’ll find brands including Acne, Isabel Marant, Christopher Kane, Preen, Theory, J Brand, Marni and Manolo Blahnik, along with me – blindfolded and tied to my seat so I don’t buy someone else’s wardrobe.

Hope to see you there,

Penelope
