Why I love Crossroads

Years ago I discovered Crossroads and the magic of re-sale clothing. At first I bought and traded a LOT but as time went on I learned to be more selective about my purchases. Re-sale is really about hunting for those few "special" brands or really unique items. (Not just the stuff you can buy anywhere and fill your closet with).
I didn't realize it until after the fact, but this whole ensemble, (minus the bag) was bought at Crossroads over a period of a year and half. The Kimono was a purchase made last spring. The dress was found last winter, and the wedge heels were snapped up this past June.
I'm a firm believer in shopping strategically. When it comes to re-sale I shoot for brands that I wouldn't normally buy at retail prices. This Black Halo dress still had the $360 tags attached when I snapped it up. The Jeffrey Campbell heels hadn't even been worn yet. Score!

 (The Kimono was just one of those items that screamed "Unique", so I didn't concern myself with branding).
My "pop" accent for this outfit was my lipstick choice. Brights like this one require very little else makeup-wise. I opted for an all-over NARS palette, with the new matte lip crayon in "YU", Nars bronzer and blush in the new "Adult Content" palette, and a NARS eye palette in "Ride up to the Moon".

Where will you find your next "can't live without it" item?

With Love,

  1. You looked GORGEOUS this night! Everything was perfection. One of my favorite looks of yours, EVER.

    Sorry I didn't say goodbye! I got lots of annoyed texts from friends that I just snuck out! The hubs had to drag me away or I would have stayed all night! So good to hang.
