Nothing haunts us like the things we didn't buy. That niggling feeling we get, remembering the perfect shoe, the ideal bag or even the dream dress that would have been perfect for your big day.

Whether you spotted it on last season's catwalks or in a department store with your mother 10 years ago, the frustration of having the ultimate purchase slip through your fingers, never to be seen again can be unbearable.


Luckily for all brides-to-be dreaming of vintage Valentino couture or even Tiffany earrings no longer available, Vestiaire Collective are here to solve your sartorial wedding woes. Meet their brand new service, 'The one that got away'. 

As one of the biggest social shopping and designer resale sites on the planet, with a global community of 3.5 million users, there's choice aplenty.


Simply log onto the site, fill out a 'submit a wish form' with a description and image of the item you are longing for and let the magic happen! Your item will be posted on a board visible to all users and if a member spots an item they have hanging, unwanted in their wardrobe they can click the 'sell it' button, pinging a notification straight to you. Who says fashion miracles can't happen?

'The one that got away' service is available now and runs until 30th November 2015 at
