Having style doesn't need to break the bank. I love fashion, but I do not love how my fashion sense tends to break the bank. Victoria, a very good friend of mine, has taken me under her wing and showed me a consignment store that showcases brand name pieces at dream pricing. Still In Style Resale Boutique, located in the heart of mainstreet Newmarket, is just the shop to go to that combines fashion and affordability. Consignment stores receive brand name clothing, but in order to put these items for re-sale they MUST meet the store specified required guidelines. In all honesty, I want to set up an appointment with these ladies to show them a few items I have in my closet (hopefully meeting the criteria). The items you give to the store are sold, and you are given a portion of the sale. Technically, the store does not buy the clothes off of you, but you are still receiving a little something that once costed you a big something.
Roughly 8 months ago my mother and I gave over 20 bags of clothing to good will, family members, and friends. But, I do have a few pieces in my closet that I wouldn't mind giving to Still In Style, especially knowing that they invest in quality items (i'd like to think my items meet that category). Of course, in consignment, you HAVE to sifter, as you would a thrift shop, but when you find that specific piece, you instantly fall in love...needless to say after this look book, I bought a few items.
Still In Style Resale Boutique sells anything from prom dresses, to Coach purses, to Michael Kors shoes.
I decided to do a picture look book, and save my video look books for a few other ideas I have in mind (blogs to come). We pieced a few outfits together and wanted to show the original price vs the now price!
