BITS & PIECES: shop my outfits on Instagram

Those of you that like to follow along on Instagram (@vickyheilerhave probably noticed me using LIKEtoKNOW.it quite a bit recently. Personally, Instagram is one of my favorite inspirations for anything from outfits, to food, shopping, home decor and beauty products. I have loved the opportunity to shop the outfits of my favorite accounts straight from my inbox after liking the photos on Instagram, so I thought I would provide you guys with the same service.

CRAVINGS: marrakech

Marrakech is one of those places that has been on my travel wishlist for a while now. Vibrant colors, spice markets, palm trees and stunning weddings blankets are my personal association with the city located in western Morocco. Reason enough to go see it for myself, right?

CRAVINGS: travel style

After 5 amazing days in Dallas, we are currently enjoying the last few hours by the pool. The bags are packed and my travel outfit is all ready to go! Whenever I am flying, I don’t want to look like I left my house in my pjs, but still want to be comfortable. Today’s cravings are all about that perfect balance between looking the part, but also feeling relaxed. Here are some of my go-to pieces when traveling:

CRAVINGS: pre-loved

A week ago, Kathi and I held a fleamarket at our office. Aside from the fact that we had so much fun meeting a lot of you, we also had some really interesting conversations about pre-loved items and how someone’s “trash” can be another person’s “treasures”. It got me thinking. What are my treasures? Why do some items only make it out of the back of my closet a few times, while others are in constant use? And how cool is it, that things I don’t love as much anymore, are items that make others come to our fleamarket and put a smile on their face? That’s probably the same thought the founders of Vestiaire Collective had. Only that they stepped up their game a notch and took the amazing idea of re-selling pre-loved designer items to the next level, meaning: online! Instead of you handing over your pieces to a second-hand store (which usually charges 50% of commission), or putting together a fleamarket yourself (which involves quite a bit of work and lots of schlepping – trust me), they offer a platform where you can shop and sell authentic designer items, as they live by th“no to fakes” motto and have a detailed authenticity control for every single piece before it is sent to the buyer. The perfect place for fashion lovers to part with their unloved (but no less amazing) designer items – or shop for new love!
