I spy with my little eye... a second hand Paradise.

Last week-end I finally boosted myself and visited Garderobe on Jumeirah Beach Road. Why did it take me so long? It was such a good surprise! Don't be afraid to knock on the door, there is a reason why the shop is not wide open: it is full of fashion Treasures. The place is like a little retro case, with vintage Fashion Magazine Covers framed on the wall, Aznavour and Piaf singing along, and it is literally filled with Clothes and Accessories, it took me a while to focus, there was so much to see. A big Merci to the Garderobe team for their patience and for giving time to their Clientele to have a proper look at their selection (I don't know about you but I don't like it when people are all over me in shops, it stresses me out).
The items are organised by colour and to be honest, I was impressed by the selection. In Dubai when you hear "second hand" or "vintage", it is often "vintage-like" and "high street second hand", I was disappointed a few times. None of that at Garderobe. I actually felt as if I was back in Paris or London, where fashion means quality and handcraft. Chanel, Prada, Fendi, Miu Miu, Sandro, Balenciaga, they all live at Garderobe. An other good surprise? The prices are right, and that in Dubai, is, well priceless... I got a Tsumori Chisato skirt for AED 350, it made my day!
On top of all of that, the team is really nice, patient, attentive, they will help you look for your size, and will update you on the new arrivals, they actually make you feel at home (and what a nice home!). 
I will be back, and I highly encourage every Fashion lover in Dubai to go visit Garderobe.
