Where second hand becomes chic and glam.

Affaires à Suivre is the name of a clothes and fashion accessories outlet that recently opened in Tunis; fortunately for me just around the corner from my office. Linda Zribi Smaoui, the shop owner, who also happens to be a friend of mine, has here brought the expression “second hand” to a whole new level.

Affaires à Suivre (a play on words between “Items to Follow Up” and “To Be Continued” in French) acts as a resale shop. We’re all more or less guilty of packing our wardrobes over the years with gorgeous looking, but terribly uncomfortable shoes, or of buying that fashionably outrageous dress on a whim and then regretting it.

Well that’s Linda’s point. For those of us who have finally got to terms with the fact that “No, I will definitely never wear that (again)”, and who want to get rid of those clothes and accessories (of any label but in perfect shape!), Affaires à Suivre is the place. With the help of Artistic Director Michael Zampol on the layout and décor of the shop, and that of Shop Manager Cyrine Belkhiria, Linda has created a cosy and glamorous boutique full of great pieces to suit all tastes.

Here are a few pictures (above) of my first visit to Affaires à Suivre last week. See those two tops I’m proudly posing in: the yellow one is by Zara, and the beige silk one is by Alexander McQueen… I fell for them and bought them. Bargains, promise!
