Adrien: Recycling.

Marianne and I both follow a practice we call "recycling." It's where you sell stuff to buy something new, usually something a bit nicer than what you sold. So, my most recent recycling project goes like this:


  • Marc Jacobs bag
  • Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch
  • March by Marc Jacobs coin purse
  • Anthropologie dress
  • Anthropologie necklace
  • Lululemon leggings


One (seriously ridiculously awesome) "vintage" (does 1994 count as vintage?) Louis Vuitton epi Speedy. It was waiting for me when I got back from Knoxville:


Yay! It is in amazing condition - practically brand new! The original owner took good care of her stuff.  I'm pretty happy with this recycle - it feels good to get rid of six items I wasn't using and replace them with one thing I really, really wanted.


  1. SO worth selling all of that "meh' stuff for one fabulous thing, right?! And I cannot believe it is in such perfect condition, having seen it with my own eyes. Score!

  2. I'm so glad you got it! It's perfect. I love the 'Recycling' concept. I might have to steal that one next time I start drooling over something fabulous.

  3. GAH I love this. I have coveted an epi Speedy for so long. Can't wait to see what you wear with it!

    Re: recycling. I also do this. Actually my first major bag purchase was funded with money from my selling off some rarer punk records. I really need to list more things because I have slacked lately. I need someone to come over and help me pick which things to sell though.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous!! Congrats on the LV.

  5. So glad you got it! It really suits your style and my god the condition! Score! I wish I had pricier things to get rid of to get something I really want! Ha!
