Is it too early? No Way!

Christina Novak

Are you an early bird? Are you one of those people that cannot wait to change from one season to the next? We always love it when January comes as it is still cold but the early closet-sorters help us to keep things on the light and bright side even when it is dreary outside.  Once the boutiques start to sell Resort clothing everyone is ready to toss off the heavy, dark, cumbersome coats, sweaters and boots and transform themselves by sporting their spring plumage. 

Now is the time to bring in your lighter weight cardigans, your cute ankle boots, jean jackets, bright colored rain slickers (think Kate Spade), scarves, and sundresses that are taking up your valuable closet space....because you never worn them last year, now did you? 

We have (3) three ways that you can consign. 1. Make an appointment. 2. Use our Fashion Dash-In. 3. Post-A-Box

There could be a variety of reasons that you didn't wear your last seasons purchases: gained/lost weight, impulse purchase, a gift your received that is just not you, the color makes you look dreadful, shoes pinch your tootsies, you've reinvented yourself and are no long a Rocker Chic but a Posh Girl, etc. 

The best time to get rid of something is right away and to not let it take up valuable closet real estate once you realize it's not going to make your life easier. 


Putting it all together

Christina Novak

People that love to consignment shop usually have a unique style of dressing. Anyone can go to the mall and purchase the pieces picked out for them by the careful designer's plan. This top matches this bottom and this jacket matches those boots. Yes, you can find lovely things at the mall BUT you run the risk of seeing yourself wearing the exact item and/or look that someone else has on at a party or in the office. Zoinks!

Resale shoppers love to showcase their individuality by putting together items that "match" but it's all according to the ideas in their own minds.  Let's say you have a black pleated skirt - One person might put on Doc Marten boots, with crazy tights, a tight fitting retro tee, a leather jacket,  and a beautiful, chunky, silver cuff bracelet. Someone else (or even the same person feeling a bit more conservative on that day) would take the same black pleated skirt and wear Ferragamo flats with the signature bow, a crew neck cable-knit sweater with a pink Peter Pan collared blouse, a pearl necklace and carry the Chanel Boy handbag. 

Individuality is what makes dressing each and every day fun. You can channel your inner diva, or highlight your Rock and Roll spirit or just decide that you are going to play it on the down side.

Rings on Her Fingers....

Christina Novak

I asked Kiersten Rolla, recent graduate from University and professional Expressionist painter what her favorite fashion accessory is.

Q.You recently graduated from University with a degree in Fine Art. Congratulations!  How are you utilizing your degree?

A. I am exploring abstract landscapes and continuing with my portraiture work which is my first artistic painting passion. My art allows me to find different ways to examine emotions from meaningful intimate moments to the feeling of awe inspired by a beautiful view.

This is at an exhibit with one of my paintings called Unspoken Language - Rhiana, Kiersten and Christina

Q. What other artistic endeavors are you exploring?

A. I am trying my hand at jewelry making. I love big, natural stones and working with wire and leather.

Q. What is your favorite fashion accessory?

A. Rings, rings and more rings!

Q. When did you fall in love with rings?

A. When I was 16 is when I really discovered rings. I never wore much jewelry before that. I would go to the mall and poke around and one day I found this ring with a cool design and a little pearl and I just had to have it. From then on I was always looking for unique rings.

"I picked up this Tree of Life ring at a craft fair in Shepherdstown, W.V. and I loved it because of all the small details - inside and out.

Q. Do you have a favorite ring? 

A. Before I was 21 I had a malachite ring that I found in a shop in Ashville, North Carolina that I loved. I wore it all the time with everything.

Q. Have you given rings to someone as a present?

A. Not really, but I have been given special rings - (Kiersten smiles when she says this) - My parents gave me my birthstone, blue topaz, for Christmas a few years ago.  I also received another special ring recently.

The little red one I also picked up in Shepherdstown, WV at an antique store.

Q. Do you feel that you have "enough" rings?

A. Never!

I spotted these at New To You and they had to be mine.

Q. Do you have a favorite designer?

A. Yes, Alexis Bittar is my favorite ring designer because his rings make such a big, bold statement.

Q. Do you have any rings that got away?

A. Oh, yes, when I was in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, I found a buffalo turquoise ring in a natural stone store. I fell in love with it but it was way too expensive for me. I used to go in to visit it but in never became mine.

Q. What is your favorite ring now?

A. My engagement ring!! I became engaged just a few weeks ago to my boyfriend of five years, Sam. 

Q. Tell me about it, please,

A. Sam designed it himself; I had no idea that he was doing it. The stones are set in platinum with engraving on the sides which is Art Deco inspired. My fiance did it all on his own, he designed it,  including the engraved decoration on the sides. We are so happy!!!

Tell your story walking!

We asked fashion designer and stylist Kendra McCullough about her biggest fashion passion....

 

Q:  In fashion, what is your biggest passion?

A:  SHOES!! I like shoes.

 

Q:  Have you ever given someone shoes as a present?

A:  I haven’t but I've helped others pick them out, especially my mom and my sister.

 

Q:  Can your feet feel the difference between good quality and poor quality shoes?

A:  I think so. Good quality leather molds and fits your feet. Man-made or cheap leather stays in its place.

 

Q:  Do you have a favorite shoe?

A:  I would have to say Alexander McQueen shoes are my favorite. I love the ones made mostly before his death but I do own a couple pair from after his passing.

 

Q:  Do you remember your 1st “good” pair of shoes?

A:  Ooh!! Good question! I think my definition has gone up over the years but a few years ago Jeffrey Campbell produced a pair that was black with spikes. It was “a good kick start”!

 

Q:  How did you feel when you were wearing your Jeffrey Campbell spikes?

A:  I loved them! They were a real attention-getter. I coveted them for months. I saved and saved and finally bought them.

Q:  When did you fall in love with shoes?

A:  As a kid, even in soccer, everyone else wore black and I had neon. At seven years old I wanted high heels but my mom said “No”. I tried to make my own heels from K’nex but it didn't work.

Now I mostly wear black, white or denim clothing. I like my shoe to be the star. I truly believe that shoes make or break an outfit.

 

Q:  Do you have “enough” shoes?

A:  No! Never! I constantly find fabulous shoes that I covet.

 

Q:  What shoes would you never wear?

A:  Crocs, there are others but I will stick with Crocs.


Q:  Which shoes do you feel are indispensible in a woman’s wardrobe?

A:  I would say a neutral/nude pointed toe pump.

 

Q:  Who are your other favorite shoe designers?

A:  Jimmy Choo, Yves Saint Laurent and, I have to say again, Alexander McQueen


 

 

Q:  Do you have a shoe that “got away”?


A:  Yes, a pair of Jimmy Choo flats that was on sale. They had a pointed toe with cut-out design. They were purple tone, grey suede and they sold out just before checking out on-line. I still think about that shoe as it had the most beautiful shade of grey. I’d never seen it before or since.

 

Q:  Do you judge people by the shoes they wear?

A:  Every time!
