Consider Your Closet For A Cause

Let us introduce you to our caring consignor community who elect to give back some or all of their earnings when their item sells. They come from all walks of life but have the most fabulous closets out there. A considerable amount never worn and most of the items with the tags still attached. How lucky is it for the purchaser to not only snag a designer deal what is up to 90% off of retail, but that in some instances a percentage of the earnings is going to a cause of their choice. Any item that has monies going to a cause of our consignors choice will bear our charitable heart symbol against the product so you can look good, feel good and know you are doing good. We think it's kinda nice.

Perhaps you have something in your closet that you would like to consign and take advantage of our Closets for Causes program. That's great! All you need to do is select the designer items you no longer wish to have taking up space in your closet and make an appointment online with us at a time and date convenient to you.

Maybe you are thinking how much of a difference consigning and giving back from your closet will do. Well, one of the causes we work with, an animal charity has saved the lives of thousands of cats and dogs with their mobile clinics that spay and neuter these animals, which helps stop the euthanizing of these animals. Kind of solves a problem and makes a difference to these animals lives right?

No cause too big, no cause too small. Whatever the cause make a start today because there's hidden dollars in that closet that you can put to good use.

Oh and did we mention that Consignista also makes a donation of 5% to the cause of your choice just to show we care too.

Why not start to make a difference today?

Knock, Knock, Fall's Here Are You Ready?
If you haven't had the time to fill your closet with new Fall fashions, then you may want to hold off on packing some of your versatile #summer2fall fashion duds. With a few simple styling secrets you can take your favorite Summer basics into Fall. Like pairing your Tuxedo Strip Pants from those Summer nights with a long sleeve top is an easy flip to having you looking chic in the Fall. 

Got that perfect strapless Red Dress hanging in your closet? A simple red dress can span the seasons with just a clever cover-up or even pairing a wrap dress with the addition of a blazer/motorcycle jacket and close-toed shoes or motorcycle boot. 

With Black Shorts it doesn't get easier than this! Make a classic pair of black shorts winter-ready with the addition of seasonal tights of your liking. For added warmth-consider hosiery. 

Trousers aren't solely for sunshine-filled days of what was a beautiful summer's day by the pool. Trousers can be paired with a matching print top and can even add a nice boyfriend blazer. For the Fall day where Happy Hour is sunny and you don't wanna feel weighted down... trousers with an embellished tee and a bright bag can be FIRE for FALL! 

Leather Leggings are always in, yes all year round (only leather*). Just layer on a sweater/cardigan/vest--velvet or cashmere for that chill relaxed Fall night. 

If you haven't invested in a Jumpsuit yet, we highly recommended you add a few of these to your closet. Our favorite being the Sleeveless Jumpsuit paired with a jacket that will help make that low- cut neckline pop. If the occasion is right add some sequins or bling. 

The Classic Jean Skirt goes with anything and is great for those Fall casual nights with a silky long sleeve top.

What's the value of the handbags hiding in your closet?

Handbags have surpassed watches and footwear as signature items that instantly tell the world of the owner’s sense of style and fashion. It's estimated that on average women own 13 handbags across 7 different designers. 

The general rule of thumb on how long you should keep a designer handbag before you consider selling it is a year. Why? It's still going to be in great condition, and if there is some form of seasonality to its style, you'll be back in that same season as when you bought it. The purchase of "elite designer" handbags can be justified by the steadily increasing resale market where certain luxury handbags like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Gucci actually appreciate in value. 

Now ask yourself, which designer handbag do you need to have and which handbag are you ready to consign? You could earn 60-80%* on your designer consignment with us.

Food For Thought

Food For Thought

OK so here's the question; do you prefer to buy designer clothes, shoes and handbags or are you just as happy and still get the thrill when you make a high street fashion purchase? Either preference is fine but have you stopped to think about the resale value of that purchase?

Here's why we ask, we realize that buying that Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM tote may hit deep into the bank account at an estimated retail price of $1050; In fact, you may have even been saving in what seems like forever to buy that coveted piece but, is it really that expensive when you can re-sell that sought after bag for upwards of $700? We don't think so. Of course, you may never want to sell it and that is completely fine but it does make that hefty retail price seem not so bad in the event that one day you do sell it. It's kinda like shopping without the guilt.

Sell it, earn some money from it and upgrade that handbag for another Louis or perhaps you've cast your eye on a Chanel bag or HermèsHave you even considered buying a handbag on consignment? It really is becoming the new way to shop. Some bags have never even been used. And no, we're not crazy!

And resale value of designer items doesn't just extend to bags, it reaches clothes and shoes too. New shoes such as Jimmy Choo Cosmic Pumps and Chanel to boot (no pun intended) without the retail price. 

Just some food for thought. Happy shopping!

It's been a while, we know!

It's been a while, we know!

Call it writers block, or just call it we've been busy bees with all the changes we've made (for the better we believe) to Consignista.

Such as, we hear you cry! Well first you can now earn 60% when you consign with us. And yes, we still do not reduce your item's sale price unless you ask us to, PLUS if we do do a site wide promotion, it comes out of our pocket - not yours. Pretty neat.

What else? How about a great way to give back? Our Closets For Causes can turn your luxury designer items into a charitable donation to a cause of your choice. You can make any donation amount you want be it 1% through to 65% of your item's sale price or you can just take the cash yourself, we won't judge. The donation is tax deductible and as another incentive if you do decide to make such a donation, we will donate a further 5% to your chosen charity as a "thank you" for being a kind individual. It's really easy, find out more in our Closets for Causes category; Join us in our mantra which is "Help Us, Help You, Help Others".

As consignment is now considered "green tech" due to its recycling to help the environment appeal, we have a great line of environmentally friendly jewelry at fantastic prices. They make the perfect gift and are great value. We do of course have fine jewelry, but sometimes it's nice to have "fun with fashion".  Check out our accessories category to see what we mean.

Stay tuned for more updates - we have them coming.
