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.
