SHOP RESPONSIBLY: SEEK OUT RESALE SHOPS THAT INTENTIONALLY GIVE BACK TO THE PLANET BY RESELLING LUXURY GOODS

We are officially in engagement and gifting season. Some will be looking for creative ways to pop the question, while others will be celebrating the holidays in other ways. No matter your background, in the coming months, you will be celebrating something.

World Bride Magazine, wanted to take this opportunity to encourage you to shop with intention. For the sake of this article, we are going to share with you some of our favorite merchants. They will help you prepare for this upcoming holiday season, whether you’re attending a family event, or throwing one yourself.

If you’re looking to pop the question during this holiday season, and you want to invest in a ring that will get you the “yes” response, there are a few companies you might want to consider. We highly recommend visiting the Sotheby’s website to get an idea of budget, style, and options. You can scroll through the site to see a variety of diamond engagement rings, including one-of-a-kind pieces. Some of the brands they carry, such as Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, make vintage sapphire engagement rings and custom creations that will leave her speechless at any price point.

For your home decor needs, we have a few great sites that will be absolutely perfect to shop at in-person or online. Let’s start with 1STDIBS. This site is an absolute treasure site. Anything you want, from table-top to home furnishings, can be found on this platform. The sheer amount of options will have you scrolling for hours, if not days, through all their wonderful inventory.

Another favorite of ours is Doyle. They have curated auction selections, handpicked by Doyle specialists. We invite you to explore their website to see some of their fabulous jewelry, art, home decor, and more.

Let’s jump into what we’re going to wear to these soirees: absolutely anything we want! First stop is The Real Real. All you have to do is search for the name of the brand you desire, select your size, and pages of items will pop up. The next stop is Second Chance. I have found some of my greatest gems in this boutique. I also now have an obsession with Rebag and LXR Co.

You can’t go any where empty-handed, and thanks to Christie’s we can get gifts like wines and limited-edition items for collectors such as yourself.

So, there you have it. Some of our favorite resale luxury boutiques that have taken sustainability seriously. These companies are working hard to protect our environment by allowing beautiful art, fashion, and home goods to find new homes. Instead of trashing perfectly-good items when they no longer work for you, let someone else love it.

You are not limited to the stores we listed. Please support local consignment boutiques to find countless hidden gems.
