A French Girl’s Way to Second Hand Styles
I grew up in Paris, the international capital of fashion. I’ve always had a taste for fashion and a discerning sense of style. When I moved to Miami at the age of nineteen, I began a career as a model. I was immersed in fashion working for the most prestigious designers and top-tier brands,
I soon amassed an extensive collection of exclusive pieces, so I started selling them as a hobby in 2011. Back when it wasn’t cool and the only marketplace Craigslist. (Yes, I did start with Craigslist!). I immediately fell in love with the feeling of having only garments which truly brought me joy and offering the rest to avid fashion devotees.
After moving to Los Angeles in 2015, I discovered Poshmark. Since then, I sold hundreds of items through that platform. My friends marveled at my ability to pare down my closet and focus only on the best pieces for a classic tailored wardrobe. I was soon helping my friends "edit" their closets and sometimes selling their precious items. I know sometimes it can be hard of let go of some things but how amazing it is to only keep what we cherish the most. Having coffee and discussing clothing in someone's dressing room is my idea of a good time.
I’m now taking it to a higher level and sharing my passion for upcycling select pieces to a more preferential group through my own platform. I want to share my love of upcycling designer pieces, allowing my clients to offer their things to others, and giving their clothes a second life. Nowadays, it is truly important to be more conscious of what we buy and its toll to our environment. Buying quality pre-owned items is a conscious way to reduce your carbon footprint and conserve vital environmental ressources.
I believe in “Less is More”. My closet is always minimal and I try to keep it clean with only the things that are staples or that I love the most.
I’m grateful to be turning my love for clothing and passion for the environment into something beneficial to the world at large.
If you need advice, please send me a message and I would be happy to guide you into detaching with love or creating a new style. See you in your closet soon!
