I ask the question because on Saturday (November 14th), H&M debuts the new Jimmy Choo shoe line. While the shoes range in price from $60 - $200 with the average around $150, is that right? The normal Jimmy Choo can be wrangled for as low as $400-ish but can clearly go up to $1400+++.
The question is easy: would you rather spend your money on new Jimmy Choos for H&M or purchase gently-worn resale Louboutins, Manolos and YSLs? I realize there may be a stigmaassocicated with consignment/resale/used clothing and accessories but, I've seen and purchased some terrific second-hand buys! I have a wonderful pair of silver patina-colored 120mm shoes bestowed by the YSL gods, and purchased in Los Angeles -- a steal for $160 which is roughly the same price as brand-new Jimmy Choos for H&M.
Would I trade them? Absolutely not! But the question is, would you?
If so, I suspect we'll see you at a fever-pitched H&M store on Saturday to participate in what will surely be a sellout event!.
