I’m Taking a Zara Break and Shopping These Awesome Vintage Stores Instead

I’ll be the first to admit I’m a Zara devotee. But the thrill of finding a one-of-a-kind vintage piece that is unique is far more exciting than scooping up another Zara top. Vintage shopping is one of my favorite pastimes—my earliest (and fondest) childhood memories involve scuffling through racks of musty old clothes at the local secondhand store with my mother. It’s a shopping ritual I wholly believe led to my enduring love affair with fashion.

So today I wanted to share some of my favorite online vintage stores where you can find charming, pre-loved pieces that you can guarantee no one else will be wearing. Not only does shopping secondhand maintain individualism, but it also offers affordable access to designer heritage brands, it’s cost-effective, it favors quality over quantity, and it encourages sustainability.

What will a Marks and Spencer shopping trip look like after lockdown?

You may have been visiting your local Marks and Spencer a lot during lockdown. Like all supermarkets, its near-600 food halls have remained open so that shoppers can pick up essential supplies like milk, bread and toilet paper.

If you had been after a multipack of socks or a pair of children’s shoes though, you’d have been out of luck, as all other departments have been closed to the public since lockdown began on 23rd March. Shopping online has proven to be a workable solution, but returns are a faff that many of us simply don’t have the time or inclination to deal with.

So news that non-essential shops can reopen from 15th June will come as welcome relief to many, and M&S is among the stores readying for that date. But a post-lockdown shopping trip will be markedly different from the experience we’ve come to know.
