Whether women are sorting out fashion sins to make second-hand money, or you need a serious tie - the second-hand business is booming. No wonder. And so it is not surprising that the industry has long outgrown its infancy and has discarded its dusty image.
In the meantime, besides the well-known junk shops, there are chic shops with shelves full of designer goods. And so Second-Hand has been able to win more and more customers in the past years. Why have I always bought second-hand?
A sustainable lifestyle is possible
An incentive is of course the good price-performance ratio. Where can you get a well-preserved No Name jeans for five to seven euros? But of course I always liked to ...

Cheaper, bargains, sales - wherever I look, the stores are currently pricing their goods cheaper. Summer time is a sale. Yesterday I was on the Zeil at a southern European fashion chain to exchange something. I used to go there a lot. Lately, I've hardly been attracted to their offer. Raised eyebrows are more like it. Which isn't necessarily because of the clothes. But rather on the framework conditions. If it looks like it did in my room as a teenager, with more clothes lying on the floor than hanging on the bar, then I want to go out backwards. Oh dear, I already sound like my father ;-) Whatever. When I go shopping, I look for a well-kept ambience where the goods are on the shel ...

Is Frankfurt a shopping paradise? If you ask me, it's definitely yes. What's the matter with you? Because I'm a total fan of shopping malls. Our Main city offers five of them in every direction and for every taste - from trendy hustle and bustle over Italian strolling to upscale enjoyment over the rooftops of the city... That's why I'm taking you on a shopping tour through the centers today!
Naturally, you'll think - Sabina is a fashion blogger, she's addicted to shopping. Of course she likes shopping. But I can't leave that like that at this point. Yes, it's true: I don't find shopping sooooo bad. But if shopping in Frankfurt is good at all, readers will now ask from outside. I w ...

If you ask me if Frankfurt is a single shopping paradise, then: football, whiskey, racing quintet. Do I still have the attention of male readers? I have also deliberately not talked about shopping, so that you do not leave my flag right away.
Therefore I had to throw in a few keywords first, because I think that also the gentlemen here have an opinion about shopping. No matter how much you hate shopping. But even a man needs a new shirt now and then. Where do I get that wisdom from? From usually well-informed sources and in-depth, careful empirical household surveys.
However, back to the starting point: Is Frankfurt a shopping paradise? If you ask me, it's definit ...

Hooray finally spring! It's getting warm, it's getting sunny, it's getting nice. I want to stroll through the city and browse through the shops with a friend in order to discover something new. Of course not, without celebrating the “fat prey“ with coffee and cake afterwards. :-)
Shopping in Frankfurt is for most people still a shopping mall or a shopping street. But more fun is the search for surprising ideas. But where are the shops for women who are looking for something portable and who also want individuality? Today I'll tell you about my four current favorite stores.
· For one thing there would be „concept 64“. The goldsmiths and jewellery galle ...

Yes, what kind of question is that now, many will probably think. Okay. (laughs) It's legitimate. But let's just do the practical test: who knows “Coulter“? Na?
Also, there you go: this is something very nice from Hessen. More precisely, from North Hesse, Gießen. Coulters are among other things quite cuddly quilts or wool blankets. And at MyKolter.de resourceful people have come up with something nice and have been producing a piece of home for some time now.
How does that work? In fair production from Germany the designs are strictly limited. On a size of 155 x 200 cm, beautiful ponchos with houndstooth, dishtowels (you can win HERE) or the pillow with pitcher motif, ...

My girlfriend brings new ones in again, her husband twists her eyes according to her mood or sighs audibly, loudly and reproachfully. Over the years it had become about 50, as she told me last weekend, but the man had become accustomed to the many rivals. They come from all over the place and stand at almost every corner. It's not less, but more every season, in all colours and shapes: black, white, monochrome or colourful, some bigger, others rather tiny. Of course my girlfriend is a faithful soul, but when it comes to her love of shoes, everyone has to share her. Whether slingbacks, folklore sandals or pink bathing flip-flops, she has everything.
In Frankfurt she knows the best c ...

Where's this fancy coat and what's the name of this cool fur hat in English? It is a truism that Frankfurt is an international city with people from all over the world, many of whom speak English. It's not a truism, but it's very useful to be able to do small talk as a newcomer in the city - especially with other colleagues it's fabulous to chat about fashion, so one's own knowledge is sufficient. Thus new acquaintances could be made successfully privately and professionally.
Also one or the other surely is pleased about exciting trip tips or anecdotes from the environment, at which it does not lack here: So if you want to refresh your English or just polish it, meet nice people an ...

No magazine, no newspaper, rarely a fashion blog on which sooner or later the magic word of the "vintage" style does not fall. But what is this actually and was there not even something with "Second Hand"? The definition can probably be argued about, but second hand, used or already worn clothing is always. I guess the V word just sounds more modern, hip. And I also associate it with prettier clothes. But that doesn't have to be.
However, not only the style, but also the purse and conscience can be protected with Vintage shopping. I am rather of the practical kind and the idea comes to me to buy something fresh in top condition, which another woman simply doesn't like anymore. How ...
