As I mentioned in a previous post, for the lastcouple of weeks I've been browsing reselling platforms (local ones, not Ebay). I'm drawn to this from a sustainability point of view and because of lower prices for higher quality obviously. I finally placed an order with a French girl who seemed to share my size and style, for a lightweight down jacket and a printed cardigan.

The jacket I like: I was looking since last year for a style like this in a special color like burgundy or plum (not the Uniqlo palette). Only complaint is that it's a tad tight in the chest so tbh, I wouldn't have kept this at full price. But I think it'll scratch my puffer itch for a while ;).

The cardigan looks good to me, but the sleeves are very tight - weird cause I already have pretty narrow arms. The fabric is also stiff (merino-acrylic blend which doesn't say much), which makes the drape good but exacerbates the sleeve problem. Not sure what to do here as I really wanted a cosy throw over anything cardigan. I might try to stretch the sleeves when wet... or should I just put up for sale again?

All in all not a disaster, but it's made me realize again this kind of shopping has a low success rate per definition. Even with all your tips (for which thanks again!) the aforementioned problems would have been hard to predict...
