Today I wanna show you my haul from a large second hand shop in Berlin.
When I was in Japan I always loved Harajuku second-hand shops like the big "Kinji used clothing" store. A huge assortment in so many different styles and everything super cheap. You can even find brand clothes for cheap!
But I never showed a certain interest in German second-hand shops.... you know there are a lot of prejudices: bad quality, broken, smelly, dirty but still too expensive!
But I was curious... I wanted to find out on my own!
|my simple look that day|
So I went to "Colours" a large second-hand store in Berlin Kreuzberg (Bergmannstraße 102) which belongs to the vintage/second-hand supplier "Kleidermarkt" which runs several stores in Berlin and Hamburg.
|the entrance (store in the first floor)|
You have to know that there are cheap garments and some with fixed prices. Those garments are a little expensive for second-hand in my opinion! (mini-skirts or hotpants for 20€...) but well these pieces might be a little more special....
But I found all my treasures among the cheaper pieces!
(Every skirt 3€, every jeans 5€ and many garments for price per kilo which can be really cheap!!!)
I was searching for baggy jeans, dungarees, denim minis skirts, checked shirts and checked ginham/Vichy square garments!
You have to know what you are looking for, otherwise you are lost in this mass of chlothes!!!
1. baggy jeans
|These are just ordinary men's Levis jeans but with my body they work as baggy/boyfriend look! Exactly what I wanted!|
|looove them <3|
|Also loose fitting!|
3. denim mini skirt
|I was looking for black, white or blue ones.|
|This light blue one convinced me ^^|
|This one was a collaboration of Uniqlo x Disney (so a japanese brand!) but it was too tight...|
|I really wanted a red/black one.|
|Guess what? It's from a real GYARU BRAND !!!! o.O "Maison Gilfy!|
|"Gilfy" is maybe not so well known anymore but it ruled rockish gyaru fashion maybe five years ago! It's still existing with 13 stores across Japan. None in Shibuya 109... but it used to have the biggest 109 store some years ago!|
Just so crazy!
5. checked ginham/Vichy square garments
|A cute blouse!!!|
|It once was from Tally Weijl.|
Checked ginham/Vichy square is this year's super spring trend in gyaru fashion!
|you can change the look|
|You can even change the complete garment from the inside to the outside!!!|
|Such a versatile garment!!!|
I can recommend "Colours" if you have enough time and you are willing to search for some special and cheap pieces among a lot of useless rubbish ^^°
Of course there are broken garments, dirty things and ugly lapse of tastes that you could even wear for a bad taste party ^^°
But with patience and luck you can find real tresures for cheap!!! (!!!Gyaru brand!!!)
bye bye~ chu <3
