Consignment Shopping Crossroads Trading

By May 19, 2017 No Comments

I recently took a trip to Washington D.C. 

Beautiful city, amazing history & culture…I can’t say enough great things about this great city! 

D.C. also, had pretty fabulous consignment shopping too ????????

My favorite place we stopped in by far was Crossroads. It’s a consignment boutique. 

How it works: “At Crossroads, customers sell their in-style, on-trend clothing and accessories for cash or trade credit on the spot. Our stores are located in vibrant neighborhoods across the country, each filled with the clothes you want at prices you can’t resist.”

????????Couldn’t have said it better myself! 

I mean just look ???? at all of these name brand pieces!!! 

So funny story, I wanted this dress awhile back when I tried it on Zara months ago. I ended up not ????getting it…I kicked myself in the a$! later. 

When I was in D.C. shopping I ran across Crossroads. After thumbing through the racks with one of my friends/clients I found this blue ????beauty????????I was so excited I knew it was fate????????I bought along with a few other really great pieces! Moral of the story “Buy now or cry later” because you might now always get this lucky ????

I mean come on the dress even has pockets; my favorite!! And that ruffle at the bottom. It’s just too perfect! Oh and the best part is it was only $15 ????????????

Do you shop consignment? I’ve never sold, but I sure do buy it! 



I am all about women knowing who they are, finding their own individual style, and not spending a lot of money doing so.  I believe in creating looks that are timeless yet practical and consistent with your own personality. I live to shop the clearance racks! I truly believe It’s not what you wear but how you wear it. Not one of us were created to look the same, so what looks good on one woman might not look good on another. So when shopping for yourself, it is crucial to know what looks good on you. Knowing what works on your shape can make the difference from an ordinary outfit to ex-ordinary. I think we should go through life giving it all we have and I apply this ideology when dressing myself. I know from my own experience that when having a not so good day I know that if I put on a nice dress or fun sassy top, I can guarantee that what ever sour mood I might have felt before starts to slip away when I slip into the clothes. First impressions are lasting so why not always try to look your best you never know who you might meet! These are all approaches I take when building my wardrobe, or getting dressed on a daily basis. As far as about me as a person to share some insight with you. I clearly LOVE clothes. I but what I love more than the clothes themselves is how I feel when wearing certain outfits. I also LOVE to style for other people. I get such an amazing feeling when I have helped someone select an outfit that they feel good in. Or sometimes what is better than that for me is dressing someone in something they would never choose for their self and they end up loving it. Although I do love clothes I do not believe in spending a lot of money to look and feel good. I get a thrill out shopping clearance. The price tag does not define the worth of an item to me. What makes it worth it for me is how it makes me feel and knowing that I paid half the cost and still look GREAT!
