Shopping Resale

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Refinements Resale Boutique in Durham! I shopped around, put together some fun (and affordable!) outfits, and got to learn a lot about shopping resale

Here’s how shopping resale works: Refinements Resale Boutique receives the items for the store by women setting up appointments. They drop off clothes on hangers that are 2-3 years old, and quality pieces are selected for the boutique. The pieces selected are also labels that you recognize, are defect free, and are items that you won’t find anywhere else. Once the pieces are chosen for the store, everything is organized by size and also by clothing type which makes it really easy to shop. Some of Refinement Resale’s favorite pieces sold include a Chanel bag, Ferragamo boots, and gorgeous formal gowns. Refinements Resale Boutique has become a woman’s space where you can come to a relaxing atmosphere after work to unwind which is truly amazing!

When shopping resale you should note that it’s important to take your time, be prepared, and keep an open mind. It’s the thrill of the hunt when you’re looking for a great piece to take home with you (like this Ellen Tracy top below that I found)! By shopping resale you’re able to get more bang for your buck, and get high quality pieces for a fraction of the retail price. What can be better than that?!

Here are a couple of the outfits that I put together:

    It looks like you got some great pieces that night! I haven't done a lot of thrifting, but it can be a lot of fun, and really awesome when you score something you love.
