It has been about a year now since I started using new platforms to sell my vintage and second hand finds other than Ebay. I have been an Ebay seller for many years but I needed something different, with different rules and lower fees. I was studying Depop and Vintag and I realized that they were interesting options with better prices and less stress than Ebay.
I started my Vintag shop only for vintage pieces and my Depop account to sell almost everything, from vintage to second hand. On both platforms I buy and sell and I have a few favorite sellers. One of them on Depop is Tiziana from Vintage Afropicks that I also met a couple of times in Milan at the East Market. She has very interesting vintage pieces because they are often rare and honestly priced. The only problem is that many of them are sold super quickly (or are too small for me!).
This time I was lucky enough to find this vintage dark red cape and to buy it before anyone else did! This loden cape is super warm and I found out that it is also perfect when you wear large blazers or sweaters!
Today I wore it with Zara prince of Wales culottes and black turtleneck sweater and paired it with black laced ankle boots from Ouigal and handmade Coco headwrap from Madame Ilary.
I added to this cape a vintage Nina Simone brooch (that’s how they called it!) that I bought at the Lipscani Antiques fair in Bucharest a few months ago. Brass earrings are handmade from Metalica Creazioni.
