Hey guys! Today I am here with another haul post, containing some very exciting things, all from Twice. If you had never heard of Twice before, they are an American company which sell second-hand, and sometimes new, clothing and handbags! Now when I said second-hand your mind may think of old clothes, that nobody would want, however Twice only sell like-new products from recent collections. The brands that they sell include Kate Spade, J.Crew, Ralph Lauren and much more, the only difference is that they cost a fraction of their original RRP!
Even though Twice are an American brand they actually post internationally to the UK, Canada and Australia (also I checked, you don't have to pay tax and duty)! Ontop of this, you can also sell any of your unwanted clothes and handbags to them, helping you earn some money. Sadly this option is currently only available for those living in America, but hopefully they change that in the future!
I must admit, when I saw that they saw that they sell a lot of high-end brands, I was a little hesitant about whether or not the products, bags especially, were genuine or not! After having a little look around the Q&A section, I read that they check all of their products for authenticity, so I guess that clears that one up.
Now that I have got that little explanation done, onto what I bought from Twice when I was given some money to spend! I honestly spent hours searching through everything on the website, trying to find my few favourite things (which was so hard, especially since there seemed to be loads of new products coming onto the site every hour), however I eventually narrowed it down to five things!
Their handbag section is actually quite new to the site, so I obviously had to get something from there, or should I say two somethings! The first one that I ended up going for was the gorgeous Kate Spade Palm Springs Maggie Satchel* in Pebble, which cost $114.95/£71.52 (RRP of $398/£247.63). I spotted this beautiful light, blush pink leather bag and had to buy it! It has so much room inside, plus it is actually my first designer handbag which is exciting. This was brand new with its original Kate Spade tag and dust bag, and even though it had a couple of little marks on the back (which I've managed to wipe off), it is seriously amazing value for money considering the original cost!
The other bag oriented thing that I got was again from Kate Spade, this time it was the Kate Spade Spotted Neda Purse* for $49.95/£31.08 (RRP of $198/£123.19)! I have wanted a Kate Spade purse for absolutely ages, so when I saw this I knew that I would be buying it, especially since it has spots on which is probably my favourite print. The lining of this is lovely, and also fits so much in it!
Strangely I don't own a single pair of black jeans, so I thought that it would be a good idea to get some, especially since monochrome seems to popular for autumn and winter this year! With that in mind I decided to go for a pair of American Eagle Black Jegging Jeans*, for $16.95/£10.55 (RRP $50/£31.11). Even though these are classed as jeggings on the Twice website (since they contain 2% spandex), they feel, for all intensive purposes, like normal jeans! The fit of these are honestly amazing - they aren't too long and are really comfy.
I got a couple of tops too! The first being a MANGO Brown Striped Blouse* for only $8.95/£5.57 (RRP $50/£31.11). I must admit that even though this is in the size XS, it is very oversized, and I did think that the brown was a bit darker than it was in real life, but I think that it looks alright on - I just need to find a belt of some sort to help pull it in at the waist! Apart from that though it feels well made, and the material is nice!
The second top, and last thing that I bought, was a Uniqlo Oatmeal 3/4 Sleeve Top* for $7.95/£4.95 (RRP $14.90/£9.27)! I love 3/4 sleeve tops, and loved the colour of this, so obviously I had to buy it. Uniqlo isn't a brand that I had heard of, however the material of this is quite thick and extremely soft, meaning that I'll have to look into some of their other tops!
I was really impressed with my purchases and what you could get from Twice, for a fraction of what the products would normally cost! I really wish that there were more shops like this, as it's a great way of being able to buy designers labels without paying the full cost.
I have also kindly been given a 50% off code (yes, 50%) for all of my readers on their first order, to help indulge in some somewhat guilt free shopping! If you'd like to take advantage of that lovely offer then make sure that you click here, and you should get a little code popup for you to use. I'd love to know what you buy if you get something from Twice too!
What do you think of the concept of Twice?
