Summertime Maxi Dress That Is Consignment Chic

Green floral maxi dress thrift

Green is a color of nature and I felt like a part of it when I wore this floral print maxi dress. I found this breezy maxi at a local consignment shop ReThread in Dallas.  It’s summertime and you just want to keep cool and look chic at the same time. A dress is a great go-to style. Consignment pieces are great additions to your wardrobe. Why? Because you can find quality fashions that won’t break your budget. I consignment shop all the time and especially for unique, designer-looking pieces. These type of boutiques are very particular about what styles they accept. You can find designer labels for less than $50 most times. And if they have a sale it can go even lower.  The dress I’m wearing I bought for $20.  The fabric is soft and silky and makes you feel like you’re floating when you walk. Consignment shopping is your friend.  Even if you’re not into the designer labels they carry well-made quality fabric garments.

Why Consignment Shopping

  • You can often find fashions for 40%-50% off retail price. Meaning, you can purchase a jacket that retails for $100 but consigned at the price of $50
  • Although you may be at a consignment store there can be brand new items. Sometimes retailers/boutiques close or go out of business and the consignment store will purchase their merchandise.
  • You can find fabulous markdown sales at most consignment stores. Be sure to ask about their sale items when you enter the store.
  • Get to know the staff at the store and let them know what you are looking for.  Leave them your name and number so they can call you when a certain garment comes into the store.
  • Many consignment stores pride themselves on having a variety of different styles and unique fashions. This is a place to shop to express your personality at non-designer prices.
  • These shops are generally small boutique size and really offer personalized help. You don’t have to fight crowds or go through racks and racks of clothing.

I was feeling some type of “supermodel” way. Don’t take me seriously in these pictures. Let’s blame it on the dress. This shoot was sure fun and I want to thank the wonderful Greg Jones photographer extraordinaire. I hope you find fashions that reflect your own personal style at a local consignment store.  Style has nothing to do with a label.
