I’m a sucker for a good deal. Especially a designer deal. It doesn’t matter where or how I find it, if the price is right and it fits, chances are it is coming home with me. Many times I have absolutely zero intention of buying anything and then I will come home with an arm load of glorious finds. Lately this has been happening to me every time I set foot into Reddz Trading in Georgetown. I walk in with the prerogative to sell my old clothing, which I do, but then I walk out with a new piece that completely rocks my world. Obviously that is their plan and holy hell is it working.
On my most recent trip to drop off my old duds, I found this Chloé eyelet dress (for under $100) and immediately snagged it before anyone else could. I was like one of those crazed brides at a warehouse sale – running to the rack to get my hands on “the dress” to call dibs first but only difference was there were no brides, no competition and no wedding dresses. I understand that this may come off as completely insane but I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that my heart starts racing when I find a deal like the one I found at Reddz. And since I feel like we have become increasingly close over the past few years, I feel like it would be wrong to keep any secrets from you.
While I am divulging my wardrobe secrets, I guess I should also tell you that I try to do a big clothing purge at least once per season (which also means 4+ trips to trade my clothes in for designer amazingness). I usually end up purging twice during each season, since I end up accumulating so many clothes, which helps free up room in my closet for things that I will actually wear. I donate the clothing that I know won’t sell and then I take the designer/jcrew+ clothing to Reddz or Ella Rue to sell. Both of these consignment stores are located in Georgetown, will give you great prices on your old clothing and you are also almost guaranteed to find something amazing while you are there. Which works out swimmingly since you just received a pocket full of cash from your clothing purge. Talk about a Win-Win ladies!
So now you know my a little about my weird shopping antics, where I find the most redonkulous designer deals and how I justify my purchases. Now lets get to the pictures and the shopping..
