Time to Let These Clothes Go to a New Home

Dress: Rodarte for Target; Blouse: eShakti via Boutique Larrieux; Headband: ?; Tights: We Love Colors; Boots and Sunglasses: Target

Well, I tried.  I've worn this blouse three or four times now, but I still feel weird every time--with or without the ruffle...but especially with the ruffle.  It's time I give up and let it go to a more daring dresser.  This Rodarte for Target dress is most likely going along with it.  The dress has had a good run, but I do feel weird wearing it to work each time I've done so.  I've worn it out once, and that worked well, but I don't really see myself wearing it out again.

I asked the hubs this morning why he didn't comment on my crazy outfit.  He told me that I couldn't surprise him anymore.  I took that as a challenge.  But really, I do value his opinion and would like to be told if I look like a crazy person.  Sometimes I'll agree and change, and sometimes I'll ignore it and go on my merry way.

When I was at E-Collectique on Friday, Mikelle the owner encouraged me to bring some stuff in to consign.  I would be curious to know how much one makes selling one's clothes instead of donating them.  Probably only a couple dollars, but why not give it a shot.  Even store credit would be neat--more dangerous, but neat. Have any of you sold your clothing to consignment stores before?

In other news, Project Runway All Stars starts tonight!!  Team Rami over here!

  1. Ahhh thanks for the reminder about PR! I don't know if the tevo will know to record it since it's all-stars.

  2. My DVR didn't. I had to set it for Project Runway All Stars even though I have Project Runway series scheduled to record.

  3. Last summer I brought quite a few things to Fashion Xchange on Bluemound in Brookfield. I forgot what the percentage was for getting cash vs store credit, but it was better than just having the things sit in the attic or donated. I still donate but some "nicer" things I'd like to get a few bucks back on. The dress is cute! I can see it being cute for GNO but I know what it's like to be over some things in your closet.

  4. I've never sold anyone of my clothes to a consignment store. I don't have anything good, and I don't want to be told how "good" my clothes are, ha ha.
