Vintage in Town | Du Chic à Vendre

Dear Letter Lovers,

Lisbon is a city filled with Zara's, Massimo Duttis, Bershka's.

 Were a little low on luxury fashion brands, even though Gucci opened in January. And Vintage? 

| Well, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack |
And then I found Du Chic à Vendre

Needless to say it's difficult to be original in Lisbon. 

| The supply is low |

On that note, nothing gives me greater pleasure than to share with you the store which truly embraces the best of Fashion Industry

And which truly is one of best kept secrets of the city

Owner and founder, Monique has a fine eye for selecting each individual piece that you can find on display in the store,  and all in perfect condition.

& What's truly remarkable is that the selection caters to all tastes and sizes.

As we all know, Vintage can be expensive. Very expensive. 

After all, you're purchasing a unique piece that is out of production.

° But Du Chic à Vendre gives you the option to R-E-N-T items °

Isn't that lovely?

° So what did I find? °

The Sequin Blazer | It's loud, it's 80's, it's very "Dallas".

...But I'm certain it looks amazing with black...

And that no one in Lisbon has a copy

► Except maybe Beyoncé


But she's all the way in the U.S of A 


And then there was the Gucci leather Bag

The longer I looked at it the harder it became to leave "G" behind. 

But thankfully will power kicked in at some point or another

  Fads of Fashion

° Velvet for the Boho Chics °

° Old Fogey goes Hunter for the Hipsters °
