Hi Swappers! I have been mulling over what to write, and then the light bulb flashed. Loving Your Style!
Sometimes people ask me, what’s the next trend, what’s the most fashionable thing to wear on a Saturday night, what’s the ‘it’ factor for next Fall. My answer is always the same, “Whatever you feel most comfortable in. What makes you smile? What makes you get a birthday cake pop with your coffee? What gives you those extra few minutes in the mirror saying, this works!”
I have lived in every label, from Gucci to Fendi, to Forever21, and you know what, it’s not the label that makes the outfit, it’s the person who lives in it. Fashion is art, and Consignment is just that, repurposed art. (So in right now! LOL!) Fashion is one of many ways to express yourself, and how you feel; it’s about not caring about labels, fads, or trends. It’s about being able to feel great in what you wear, and how you wear it. Today I want to wear a pork pie hat, tomorrow I’ll wear a beanie, next week- maybe harem pants and a grungy tee. Whatever makes you feel a 100% fantastic!
That’s what I love about shopping consignment, I love to find that piece that no one has, the piece that makes me happy about the search. You don’t get that feeling in a department store, when the rack has 40 more of the same thing, different sizes. That’s 40 more people on the grind, in the same shirt. I like to get that second look, trying to figure out if I’m wearing suspenders, or is that part of my shirt? That’s why shopping consignment for me is legit. You get some many different styles, eras, and stories from the clothing. Where did someone wear that jacket? What did they do? Are they a doctor? Painter? Screenplay writer? Shopping consignment is so fun, and easy to do. Just find a fit and item you’re completely obsessed with wearing.
I know sometimes I get a bit crazy; but I see it as being a bit whimsical in a world of clothing similarity. I like making people shake their heads; thinking, is he for real?
Yes, I am; and I am loving it. Shop Swap, Shop Stories.
