Now that the temperature is rising, so is our body temperature. It’s never easy to keep your clothes looking clean and fresh when you are sweating like you just ran a 5k! We have a few great ideas on how to prevent those dreaded underarm stains!

One trick to managing your sweat stains is to avoid them! By avoiding them in the first place, you won’t have to face the chore of soaking your yellow underarm stains with vinegar and bleach. The first thing to realize is that it is not your sweat that actually causes the yellow stain. Sweat is typically clear, so usually you wouldn’t get more than a light salty residue on your clothes, which would come out easily in the wash.

Your deodorant or antiperspirant is the real culprit. Mixed with the moisture of your sweat, your deodorant or antiperspirant is what stains your shirts. Typically misapplication of the underarm product is the cause – especially applying too much product and not allowing it to dry properly. Yes, you may need to walk around with your hands in the air, waving them like you just don’t care…for just a minute or so…unless you just feel compelled to keep the party pumping longer!

Next time you apply your deodorant or antiperspirant, use a single, thin layer. There is no evidence that applying more will work any better or stop body odor. Allow it to dry completely before getting dressed. This should help prevent yellow underarm stains in your clothing!

Okay ladies, here we go. As much as we may hate the cold weather, it’s time to pull out those winter clothes and get them all washed, pressed and hung. That means it’s time to pack away all the flip-flops and cute little sandals. No more bare toes for a while. It’s time to dig out the wool socks and all those boots we have, but that’s not a bad thing. Boots are pretty darn cool too!

Here’s a helpful little tip to keep in mind while you’re transitioning your closet. While folding your summer things to pack away in those totes for the winter, it’s a good idea to pack a separate tote with the items that you know you won’t be wearing again next spring and summer. Whether it’s gotten too small, too loose, you’re tired of wearing it or you never wore it in the first place for one reason or another, don’t hold onto it and put it back in your closet next spring. Why would you want to waste valuable closet space on things you know you’re not going to wear? If you already have those unwanted items packed in their own separate container, around the end of March, it’ll be so easy to grab that tote, get those clothes washed, pressed and hung on hangers and head out to your favorite consignment shop. Before you even get the rest of your warm weather wardrobe washed and put away, you could have some extra money in your pocket to buy some really cute replacements for the things you got rid of.

And what better place to buy the replacements for your old things than a consignment shop? Consignment store shopping is just as smart as selling on consignment. For the same reasons you decide to get rid of some of your pieces of clothing, shoes and accessories, others do too. It’s not that the stuff is worn out or ruined. Consignment shops don’t take items in poor condition. It’s just that they don’t like the item for some reason. But I’m sure you can find items in consignment shops that you would absolutely love, and the really cool thing is, you’re only going to pay 25% to 50% of retail. That is amazing! Why would anybody that’s on a budget pay full retail prices when they don’t have to?

So, let’s get busy girls. We have a lot of work to do. Get those closets packed away and let’s get those winter things out and ready to go. And it goes without saying…if you come across items in with your winter clothes that you know you won’t wear, get them ready to go to the consignment shop too. Don’t hoard things. That really makes no sense. Make some money and then get out there shopping. Get yourself a cool new pair of boots or a couple of new sweaters or jackets. We can make changing our closets over a fun thing, not a chore!

With hundreds of items marked down 40% of their original low price, you can use your own sense of style and create an outfit that’s just perfect for you.

Don’t go to the mall and spend hundreds of dollars that you really can’t afford and then get to your party and find that somebody else is wearing the very same dress you’re wearing. Be unique, be sensible, be yourself. Check out resale!

Then go to your party looking like a million bucks, but totally guilt-free.

Whew! The hustle and stress of Christmas is finally behind us, but the holiday festivities aren’t over yet. We still have New Year’s Eve ahead of us. The good thing is, it’s finally “me” time. New Year’s Eve is one of the most glamorous nights of the whole year and it’s all about you. It’s your turn to shop for that special outfit for yourself, not somebody else, and then you get to go out looking sensational and have the time of your life celebrating the fresh new year that’s just ahead.

New Year’s is always so inspiring. We have a brand new year… a new beginning… a chance for a do-over of the previous year. On New Year’s Day, we make our resolutions to be a better person this year. Whether it’s to lose a few pounds, be more productive or more attentive to our families by having quality family time. On New Year’s Day, we all set high expectations for ourselves for the coming year. So begins the stress of 2012. Before we start all that though we still have New Year’s Eve. It’s our one last chance to take a deep breath and go out and totally and completely enjoy ourselves and let off a little steam before we have to begin our spectacular transformations the following day.

If looking fantastic at your New Year’s Eve party is important to you, but you don’t have a clue how to put together an outfit that will be uniquely you without spending a fortune… well, first of all, don’t head back out to the mall where you’ll pay top dollar for a new dress, shoes and jewelry. That’s so unnecessary. Besides, every store there has the same merchandise. Don’t you want to strut your own individual style? Well, you have all week to go and check out your favorite consignment shops and create an amazing outfit that does just that.

You may even have several dresses hanging in your closet from previous formal parties that you think you can’t possibly wear again. Well, you absolutely can wear them again. You can make any dress take on a whole new look just by the way you accessorize. When you head out shopping though, don’t go to one shop expecting to find all the pieces you need, because that may not happen. Pick up one piece here and another piece somewhere else. Put them all together, and voila!

For some very helpful tips on how to do this, skim through this Ralph Lauren Q & A and this article by InfoBarrel, What to Wear New Year’s Eve. You’ll find tips on how to accessorize that little black dress, but if you’re going to a casual party, you’ll also get ideas on how to dress up a pair of jeans.

So let’s get started! Yes, I still have to find my special outfit too. I do have a slight advantage though…I spend about 10 hours a day at a consignment shop. But you can come here and hang out awhile. Bring the pieces that you already own and we’ll go through the racks and the shelves and we’ll put together a killer outfit for your New Year’s Eve party!

Kermit may have a tough time being green, but for the rest of us it’s pretty easy. One very good way to be green is to buy and sell gently used clothing and accessories at consignment shops.

If you’re one of those people who takes excellent care of your clothes, then why wouldn’t you try to sell them at a consignment shop when you get tired of them? Recycle the pieces that are still in great condition and make some money. And if you’ve never shopped at a consignment shop, you are in for a very pleasant surprise. Most consignment stores sell good quality items. They don’t sell junk. If you check out the consignment shops in your area, I’m almost positive you’ll find at least one that you love. But if you start here, you won’t even have to check the other ones out. We make it super easy to be green, because we have all like-new, high-end clothing and accessories. We are very particular about the condition of every single item we take.

If you’re concerned that buying second-hand clothes isn’t sanitary, read my blog post concerning that subject. It is completely safe to buy other people’s used items. When you come into our shop and see how clean and organized it is…how it feels like an upscale boutique…you’ll completely forget that most of the things in the store are second-hand. We also have many items that still have their original tags, so some things are brand new too.

Consignment shopping has become very trendy in the last few years. We’re a shopoholic’s dream come true. You can buy tons of things at a consignment shop for the price of one designer brand piece at a department store. And because the prices are so much lower than retail, the more frugal shoppers can afford to be adventurous and try new things that they would be afraid to try if they were paying full price. It gives you the opportunity to experiment and find your own unique style. And if you mess up and buy something, but decide you’re not bold enough to wear it after all, bring it back in and consign it again. That’s another great thing about consignment …there’s no limit to how many times a single item can be recycled. As long as each owner takes good care of it, an item can come in and out of a consignment shop numerous times.

Consignment is eco-friendly, it’s so economic and it’s fun!
