Resale is Savvy

Glancing Girl here …
It’s absolutely thrilling to me that resale shopping has garnered so much national attention as of late.
It truly is the savviest {and most responsible} way to shop.
The New York Times had a great article on the best places to resale in Manhattan, and the glamourai followed up with a NY city vintage guide

I just became hooked on INA NYC’s {a Manhattan resale boutique} blog … their revolving collection of Louboutin’s, Chanel and Prada is beyond.

Revolve your Closet

Glancing Girl here …
It’s the perfect time of year to clean out your closet.

Move out what you’re no longer wearing, recycle it at Second Glance & The Annex and give your wardrobe a little face lift with a few, carefully chosen items for spring.
We accept consignments 7 days a week, 10 – 6 Monday thru Saturday and from 12 – 5 on Sunday.
It’s fast and easy.
Trust me, it feels so good to reduce your wardrobe and recycle what no longer works in a sustainable way.
In fact, that’s exactly what’s on my weekend agenda …
p.s. do you recognize Carrie’s fabulous closet in the image? It’s my {and probably every girls} dream wardrobe …

Shopping in the City

Glancing Girl here …

Resale shopping, that is.

Yesterday, women from Corvallis and Portland combined forces and took the pdx resale scene by storm!

This resale bus tour is the first we’ve tried in the pdx area – and we had friends from as far away as Dallas, Texas join us for this adventure!

We had a wonderful day enjoying each others company, exploring new neighborhoods, and supporting the sustainable fashion industry.

If you missed this tour – don’t fret.

We promise to host another, soon.

A Point of Clarification

Glancing Girl here …

I thought I might clarify just one little thing.

Although I post images of clothing, jewelry, handbags, shoes, etc. from all across the internet and from a wide variety of places {department stores, couture designers, etsy shops, etc.}, I still find most of my true loves in resale shops.

{of course, this is a practice I highly endorse}

I often spot a piece that I love but has a price tag out of my reach, or I just feel like obtaining it in a more sustainable way. I’ll keep an image of that item in my memory and search for either something very like it {or even the very item itself} gently*loved in a resale shop.

{i cannot tell you how often this has worked for me}

But I do admit to enjoying supporting independent boutiques, etsy shops, and local designers.

{especially local designers}

And, of course, who can resist a posh department store from time to time?

I just try to remember the values I hold – shopping locally, shopping sustainably, and committing myself to recycling what no longer works for me!
