INSPIRED BY ANNIE
I was on holiday in Puerto de Soller, Mallorca. It was a beautiful day and I was on the beach on the phone to work stressed to the hilt. I put the phone down and cried. It was yet another holiday ruined by worry and stress over work.
There were two gorgeous ladies on the sunbeds next to me – Annie and her friend. They saw me crying and asked if I was alright. We got talking. Annie said she used to have a big, corporate job like me until unfortunately her boss passed away suddenly. She decided to have a complete career change and opened a second-hand designer boutique in the Cotswolds. Her husband, family and friends thought she was mad. That was 12 years ago and she said she’s never looked back since.
Chatting more, I was fascinated by her story and we talked about how it would be something I would love to do. Annie thought I would be good at it. I could only imagine how brilliant it would be to be able to do something for once that I actually love and not be nearly killing myself working for someone else.
When I got back home I couldn’t stop thinking about it… and it became a dream of mine to open my own pre-loved store. So after years in the planning, here we are – borne out of a love of designer fashion (but never being able to afford it!) and a focus on sustainability without compromising the luxury experience.
