I finally found the Acne Velocite shearling jacket in the gorgeous khaki and grey combination. Sometimes it feels like there some devine intervention is required to assist with acquiring hard to find pieces. I stumbled across the jacket on Vestiaire Collective which is a suburb site, with items sold by private sellers (in both new and used condition), at realistic prices, with quality checking and authentication done by the company prior to fulfilling the order. The middle man shopping scenario perfected and an effective saftey net, so to speak, for buyers. I'm a huge fan of the site but it does present its challenges. The predominant issue is that they don't ship to Australia, so unless you are in Europe, shopping will be some what of a challenge. It's times like this that it pays to have family in the UK.
If by any chance this little old blog post message gets back to Vestiaire Collective, please expand your shipping to account for the little fashion loving Australian's (ok... at the very least, me), who are desperate to shop your site with ease.
Now all that's left to do, is await for this beauty to arrive and cross all fingers and toes, hoping it fits! Got to say, I'm feeling pretty ecstatic. It certaintly beats paying full retail.
