Yes, I said it. You can shop, save and look like you just stepped out of the department store! Consignment shopping is trending. In the last few years this way of shopping has taken off. You can sell your quality used clothes, and you can buy fabulous fashion pieces to create or complete your outfit! At A Closet Affair we have higher end brands ranging from Free People, Coach, Michael Kors, Kate Spade and beyond. You just never know what will come in. You can get next to new items for almost a third of the retail price. Not only will you be saving you money, you’re helping the planet. Most people raise an eyebrow at that statement, but I assure you, shopping secondhand is helping the planet. We are not contributing to the fast fashion craze, and we are eliminating the need for manufacturers to produce excess items. This means less ends up in land fills. How good does it sound to be environmentally friendly; dress the way you want to, and have more money in your wallet?
I have a regular customer that is always buying dresses.
One day my daughter and I were in my store together when this woman bought a fabulous Cocktail Dress. I asked her what the occasion for the dress was, and she replied “No occasion, I buy dresses that I like when I find them so I have the perfect dress when I need it.”
Wow, both my daughter and I had that light bulb moment, looked at each other and said “what a great idea!” It always seems when you need a dress for something special it’s too much work trying to find the perfect one. When under pressure it’s so stressful trying to find a dress that fits well, makes you feel pretty, gives you confidence and fits the occasion.
My daughter and I now take her very wise shopping philosophy to heart, and we buy dresses we like as we find them. Shopping every time like it’s a special occasion is loads of fun, and it alleviates a ton of stress when those occasions do come up.
It feels great to go to the closet and get to wear a favorite dress that was purchased out of love and not necessity!
