A Conversation with the RealReal: High-End Luxury Reseller

There was once a time in the country when talk of high-end luxury items included talk of item scarcity and high price tags. Because of this, it was once uncommon to own these items for the average consumer. However, the recent explosion of the resale market for luxury items is making for a different reality. The RealReal is a leader in this new $6 billion-dollar market.

The company operates on the consignment business model. Clients turn over high-end items they no longer wear to the company. When the item is sold, both the company and the client receive a portion of the proceeds.

The company has been responsible for eight million items sold through consignment. These items include clothing, fashion accessories, and household items. The sales have taken place on the company's website and through stores located in Los Angeles and New York. The company is currently valued at $450 million.

The chief merchant for the RealReal is Rati Levesque. Recently, Ms. Levesque took a moment to share some thoughts about the RealReal…

 

How Would You Characterize The Service You Offer To Customers

I view our services as a gateway drug of sorts for our customers. Individuals who in the past could not own an item manufactured by Louis Vuitton can now do so at a lower price. The customer purchases a product from us that exceeds all expectations they possessed prior to the purchase. The customer will then want a Louis Vuitton bag to go with the item.

There Is No Stigma Attached To Items Being Second-Hand

A favorite concept of mine is the luxury item life-cycle. Items are crafted with quality, customers make good purchases, then customers resell the item. These luxury items are maintaining a decent value for resell purposes. This causes more individuals to view their purchases of these items as investments more than idle purchases.

How Do You Help Customers Understand The Process

My job as a merchant for RealReal is to educate clients and customers. I provide advice on what is hot, and what is not. I also tell clients what a good idea might be to sell at the present time and what they should perhaps hold onto for the time being. We are numbers crunchers that pull data constantly. Our prices are adjusted according to supply and demand, so this is important to communicate to clients.

What Item Has Performed Well Lately

Over the last two-and-a-half years luxury watches have been selling really well. The interest of millennials in these watches have really been on the rise. Top-tier brands have sold in high numbers to the younger generation who have even shown an interest in vintage brands.

What Brands Are Doing Well

All classic brands have performed well for us. Individuals have a desire to craft a look that separates them from the crowd. The social media age was beginning to make everything look the same. People are in search of unique items that are authentic.

How Do Stores Maintained By The Company Function

Our stores in a lot of ways are mini-warehouses. This is because every item in the store is also available for purchase on the website. Every item in our brick and mortar locations have a chip in them for immediate location. When a customer in a store takes an item into a room to check the fit, the status of the item will immediately change to "on hold" online.

Accessorize Like A Pro

One of the best ways that you can transform any outfit is with some jewelry. The right combination can help to add the finishing touches to any well-thought-out attire, but you need to know what you are doing. Though I can’t pretend to have all the answers here,  I can give you some useful and easy to follow advice that you can put into practice yourself.

Jewelry Should Add Value to Your Outfit

Two of the most common jewelry sins you can commit are over-accessorizing and under-accessorizing. If you wear too many items, this will detract from the ones that you want to draw attention to. Wear too few and they won’t stand out. Also, you should avoid wearing the same items day after day as you have not selected them to specifically complement your outfit.

One way to tackle this issue is with Swarovski as they have amazing and unique pieces that will help you avoid over-accessorizing, but will give your outfit that extra push it needs to stand out.

Consider Your Facial and Body Features

When you are buying jewelry, you need to consider how it is going to match up with your facial features as well as your outfits. For example, if you want to draw attention to your ears, you can do long, dangling earrings. However, some simple studs are a more subtle approach, and when you are buying items to be worn on the rest of your body such as necklaces and bracelets, you should also think about the lengthening/shortening effect that each one of them has.

Complement Your Skin Tone As Well

The final main consideration which you need to make when you are accessorizing jewelry is making it work with your skin tone. Ultimately, the best way to work out which metals look best for you is by trying on a number of different pieces and comparing and contrasting. If you have cool and pale skin, you may want to try some warming tones such as gold, whereas the opposite tends to be true for people with darker skin tones, so opt for a cooling color such as silver.

 

Accessorizing with jewelry is something which takes a bit of practice, but once you become good at it, you can really transform the look and style of any outfit which you put on.

Accessorizing: The Right (And Wrong) Way To Get Creative

The accessories you wear can make an instant impact on your look, lift any outfit, and help you stand out from the crowd. But accessorizing the wrong way can result in a severe style disaster. Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about how to accessorize the right way, and make sure you stay on point, on-trend, and avoid making mistakes.

Keep It Simple

While accessories can lift any outfit, they are also capable of overpowering it completely. You might wear an attractive bunch of bangles as a highlight, for example, but combining it with five or six necklaces is probably overdoing it - and vice versa. Too much jewelry can look a little trashy, so if you want to pile it on, only focus on one particular area and go plain and straightforward everywhere else.

 

Be Appropriate

Don’t turn up for work wearing your chunkiest, dangly earrings - simple and professional is all you need. Keep your playful jewelry and accessories for nights out and special occasions.

 

Don’t Hide

Accessories should complement your clothes, not hide or overpower them. It’s the same principle for your face. A large, low brimmed hat paired with an enormous pair of sunglasses of your choice will make you appear like you are trying to hide, and won’t do your appearance any favors. So, if you are wearing a hat, be sensible about your choice of eyewear. And if you do go for the chunky looking glasses, consider dressing in a smaller hat, cap, or even a headscarf.

 

It’s All About The Bag & Shoes

The plainest of outfits can look stunning with the simple addition of a great pair of shoes - and even more so when you have a bag or a clutch to match. There’s no need to splash out hundreds - or thousands - of dollars on a new pair of Louboutins, however. There are plenty of budget-friendly brands out there and off-season sales where you can pick up bargains and look great for less.

 

Highlight Your Best Points

Accessories not only include your outer features, but your inner ones too! A bra con be disastrous to your look, especially if it's the wrong fit and not made for your body type. Knix's comfy bras are perfect for your specific body type and just as the name says, they are comfy too!

 

Color On Monochrome

If you are wearing a monochrome outfit, choose a more exciting color scheme for your accessories. Similarly, if you are going out in a colorful floral print dress, keep your jewelry and accessories nice and straightforward. Use the color of your accessories to highlight what you are wearing, too. For example, if you are wearing brown clothing, you might offset it with amber or orange stones, or a yellow scarf and shoes.

 

As you can see, it’s easy to get accessorizing wrong - but it won't’ take much to get it right. If you have any tips to share, feel free to do so below!

Wicked Winter Wardrobes and Where to Find Them

While summer is great for showing off a healthy glow and revealing a bit of skin, winter is the ideal season for showing off your wardrobe. It’s the perfect excuse to let your sense of style do the talking as it’s really all we got in these chilly temperatures, forcing us to dress up in layers of clothes.

Spruce your winter style up this season by preparing your wardrobe for the seasonal changes, and you might just be able to snatch up a few of the best buys. They’ll all be gone by December, you know.

Look over your inventory first

Some wardrobes are neat and beautiful while others look a hot mess most of the time. If you belong to the last category, it’s a good idea to tidy up a bit before you start to assemble a winter style. A large wardrobe is also likely to hide a lot of gems which you don’t even know about - and if it’s rather small, you’ll probably benefit from the extra space.

Store away your summer clothes if you haven’t already done so; by vacuum sealing them, you’ll be able to stack away all of those summer dresses and loose tops without taking up any storage space. Put the neatly sealed packs in your suitcase, ready for whenever you need a mid-winter trip to sunnier shores.

Layers and combinations

The fashion industry would just love it if we all made a habit out of upgrading our wardrobes every season. A new autumn look for August, a few pieces of winter garments in November, mandatory spring fashion staples for March and, of course, an entirely new summer wardrobe in June.

It is not necessary, and you probably have a lot of clothes already to create a unique and exciting look with, so take a bit of pressure off your wallet and experiment with what you already have. Try different combinations of layers, and see if you’re able to assemble at least ten different outfits with what you have on hand.

Treat yourself to what you need

When you’ve gone through all of this, you might realize what you actually need in order to create more outfits. If you get tired of garments easily and feel a bit over it after a few months, you should consider spending money on a neat necklace or other jewelry instead. You will be excited about it for a lot longer, and will be able to show it off even when you’re wearing layers of clothes; head over to kopolonia and browse through some fashion staples of this season.

The easiest and cheapest way to upgrade your winter look is to add a few new accessories. You don’t have to go all out and buy every new piece of fluffy knit you can get your hands on - just go over what you have, assemble a few outfits, and treat yourself to what you actually need... Then you can face the snow and ice in style, effortlessly warm and fashionable without spending an entire paycheck on it.

Have fun with colors

Walking out into the gray streets lately, and all we see are black umbrellas. Black coats as well, jackets, scarves, you name it - everyone looks good in darker shades, so they all seem to wear it. Maybe it’s because we tend to gravitate towards conformity, trying not to stand out too much on a dull Tuesday morning in the middle of November - but it’s kind of sad, isn’t it?

Spruce your wardrobe and the view of your passersby up a bit this winter by investing in a statement faux fur. It will keep you ridiculously warm and cozy too, so you get to brighten everyone’s mood while staying comfortable. Pair it with your best skinny jeans, some sturdy ankle boots or those over-the-knee boots that are so trendy this season, and it should be easy enough to feel totally in-sync with winter.

If you really prefer your black wool coat, that’s alright - just think about other ways to introduce a bit of color in your life. Most people are intuitively good at this, and they’ll take a look at their own pale reflection staring back at them, and decide to put a bit of lipstick on for that extra glow.

It really helps, so take a look at this guide to find the kind of lip shades that may be the perfect match for your winter wardrobe.

Focus on staying warm

Some people don’t mind the snow and wind, and we see them walking around in t-shirts still. We’re not all like that and, if given the option, we would easily choose to stay warm and dry rather than looking stylish. Luckily, it’s easy to get the best of both worlds when you have such an amazing selection of knit sweaters to choose from. 

When you invest in a proper chunky sweater, ala those Marius sweaters, you’ll be able to stay dry and cozy. You can just toss one on before a quick trip to the grocery store, and its timeless design will keep you from growing tired of it.

 

By buying quality pieces of clothing, you’ll be able to silence the consumerist inside of you as well - you know, that voice that moved into your head when you turned fourteen, which keeps telling you to buy something new.

Take care of the clothes and accessories you buy now instead, and they’ll hang around for a longer time. You might even be able to let your daughter move into that chunky knit sweater if you take good enough care of it, or watch her rock the same leather bag you used to pride yourself on a few years back.

Winter fashion is exciting, but it should also be sustainable.

QUEEN PEN x Queen of the South

This post is sponsored by USA Network and Queen of the South, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.


Anyone who knows me knows that I am a hustler and I learned to develop a tough skin really early on in life because the neighborhoods that I grew up in, did not start off as the prettiest. I had to learn to be resilient, book smart and street smart, fight for what it was that I wanted and never take "NO" for an answer. 

Although my environment was a tad bit rough, I wouldn't change it for the world because it has made me a fighter and appreciate how far I have gotten in life without sacrificing my morals or beliefs for anyone.

.... and the list goes on. 

I say this not to brag about accomplishments, but use it as a reminder to help others who look like me know that there is more to life than what your current situation or environment is providing for you.

One thing I love about a good series is relating to the main character because it allows me to naturally put myself into their shoes and become immersed in the show for hours. That is how I currently am feeling about the new series Queen of the South. Babyyyyy when I tell you Teresa is a BAD A** , I mean it, and I can definitely relate to her because I consider myself a bad a** too (as any woman should, WE ARE POWERFUL).

queen-of-the-south.jpg

Queen of the South tells the story of Teresa Mendoza who fled to America from Mexico after her boyfriend was suspected of murder. In addition, she teams up with someone from her past to help bring down the leader of a drug trafficking ring that has her on the run. In Season 2, we see Teresa start to come into her own as a Queen Pin by recognizing her power and potential.

8 Style Tips For Looking Good on a Budget

If you’re a bit of a style maven, but find that your budget and credit card bill don’t allow you to be as stylish as you like, then it can be a challenge. There is the constant battle between looking good, feeling good, and avoiding getting yourself into debt unnecessarily. But you know what, your wardrobe doesn’t have to suffer. You can still style yourself well and look good on a bit more of a shoestring budget. There are just a few tips and tricks to learn to help you along the way. You just need to know what they are so you can look out for them. Here are some of my top style tips for dressing well on a budget. 

1. If you have a cheaper blazer or jacket, then the chances are that they have some pretty cheap looking buttons and embellishments on them. But the key to shopping on a budget is to not take things at face value. Can you remove some of the embellishments or replace the cheap plastic buttons for some more stylish looking metal ones? If so, your jacket or blazer can look immediately upgraded, at only the cost of a few buttons. So some basic sewing skills are a must for any fashionista!

 

2. Keeping things simple is a great to look good for less. Take your handbag or purse, for example. Some bags have embellishments on them that just look cheap and tacky. It is pretty hard to do embellishments well, when you’re on a budget, in my opinion. So opt for a more plain and simple looking bag, rather than one with buttons or buckles all over. They bag will be much more versatile this way too, so you’ll be able to wear it with a large amount of outfits.

 

3. When you want to look good but spend less, there are also some shopping tips to follow, not just style tips. One of which is to shop online. There are many ways to save money when you shop online. Quite often there are discounts online that wouldn’t be in the regular stores, as well as looking on discount sites like Coupon Sherpa. Again, you wouldn’t get these kinds of discounts in the stores as they are only available online. You can often get discounts for signing up for mailing lists online too, so be sure to look out for those potential discounts. I know some people that are a bit wary of shopping online, especially when it comes to fashion. But at the end of the day, you could always try something on in a store to make sure you know what size or fit to get. Then you can go home and buy it online, looking for a coupon or discount to get it cheaper. Why pay more if you don’t need to?

 

4. If you can’t afford certain materials, then you need to remember that some styles and materials will look more expensive than others. Take, for example, some pumps in faux leather or faux suede. The faux suede are going to look more expensive than the faux leather ones, so they would be a better material to choose. Having said that, they will only look better if they are darker colors. Beige or nude faux suede can look quite tacky, so only opt for the fake stuff if it is in darker colors. They can look just as good as the real stuff when you do.

 

5. Along similar lines, there are other materials that are going to look more expensive than others. Take linen, cotton, and tweed for clothing styles, for example. These are all materials that often look much more expensive than they actually are. So some linen shorts or pants in summer, are going to look more expensive than they really are. Just make sure that you keep the clothes wrinkle-free. Too many creases can make things look less expensive. So a good iron or a clothes steamer is a great investment for any wardrobe.

6. The color of your clothes often is a good indicator of how expensive clothes are. Some patterns or colors can make clothes look quite cheap, so you do need to take your time to look for the good stuff when you’re out shopping. The second thing that you need to do is to choose darker colors. There are a lot of ways to hide how inexpensive clothes are when they are darker. So navy, browns, blacks (and some nudes) are good color choices for clothes to look more expensive.

 

7. Some coats, jeans, or jackets might come with belts or accessories. But often if these are of the budget variety, then the belts or accessories are pretty budget too. So swapping out these extras or accessories is a great idea. If you can find a funky or vintage belt in somewhere like a thrift store, then swap that out for the cheap option. It can upgrade the look of the jacket or coat pretty instantly. A quick little trick that can work wonders! Thrift shops are always a good idea to look for some hidden gems to accessorize with. You might not find a whole outfit that will work, but some accessories and other bits to use can often be found if you know what you’re looking for.

 

8. Most of the time, the inexpensive clothes are going to be the ones that aren’t lined. So investing in a slip (I say investing, but they’re actually pretty cheap), is a great way to make clothing look more expensive. It lines the clothes well so that they don’t look tacky and see through, and can often make the outfit look better on you. It will help the garment to flow better on you, as well as look more elegant. Plus, you’ve got the added bonus of avoiding some wardrobe malfunctions; always a good thing.

 

Have you got any tips or tricks when it comes to shopping and styling your outfits on a budget? Would love to hear what you think.

Summer Shopping on a Budget

I love the fact that summer is within our reach. After all, it means all the hot new clothes are making their appearance on the shop floor, and it definitely calls for a shopping trip in the very near future. But the trouble is that we might not have the biggest budget at the moment. After all, booking vacations and festivals can take a lot out of funds. However, there are some ways you can still enjoy a shopping trip for your summer wardrobe. In fact, here is how you can do some summer clothes shopping on a budget.

Stick to accessories which you can mix and match

Summer is a great time for accessories. After all, we love to wear sunglasses, oversized bright bags, and cute jewelry during the sunshine months. However, when we haven’t got much to spend, it’s a good idea to get some accessories which we can mix and match with our outfits. That way, we don’t have to spend a ton of money on a load of different accessories.

For example, go for some cute black sunglasses which are suitable to wear with a load of different outfits. That way, you can just put them on whether it’s with casual or formal wear. Also, you might want to go for some simple black and gold jewelry. That way, they can be worn with a range of different colored outfits to add some character. And the gold jewelry will look fantastic when you work on your tan during summer. Don’t forget an anklet too which is a must-have in the summer months.

 

Get some coupons for your summer purchases

Before you go on your shopping trip, you need to look to see if there are any deals going on at your favorite stores. After all, you don’t want to end up buying a new pair of shorts at one store to find they are cheaper elsewhere. If you want to get a wealth of new dresses and summery tops while you are limited to dollars, you should look to see if you can get some coupons. That way, you can reduce the cost of your summer purchases. If you would rather shop online, you can even get codes you can use online like a tillys promo code. That way, you can get new clothes for summer for a cheap rate.

 

Opt for one pair of sandals and flip flops

It’s easy to go mad when it comes to summer shoes. After all, there are more cute shoes around which are perfect for summer. But the truth is you only need a couple of summer shoes that you will practically live in during the summer months. After all, if you go for sandals in a neutral or a black color, they are bound to go with everything, and a pair of funky flip flops will also be perfect to take you from summer days to night. Remember that you don’t have to spend a small fortune on shoes. Look around to find a good deal on a pair which are cheap but still good quality.

 

..... And remember to get a few maxi dresses. After all, they are fab for taking you from day to night during the summer.

How To Pull Together The Perfect Outfit At The Last Minute

It’s happened to the best of us, hasn't it? We’ve gotten home from work eager to curl up on the sofa, order in, and catch up on our current Netflix obsession when disaster strikes! The horror of horrors, you get a friendly text reminding you about after work drinks, a friend's surprise party, or a cozy dinner with the in-laws and although you pretend you haven’t forgotten you totally have!


What’s The Occasion?

Figure out what event you’re supposed to be attending tonight and if you’ve received an actual invitation check that for any sign of a dress code. Next, consider the venue. Is it likely that jeans and a t-shirt will be out of place at an upscale restaurant downtown? More than likely yes, so shelve the hoodie and think about dresses, top and skirt combos or a dressy top, heels and smart jeans. Likewise, you don’t want to turn up at your nephew's sixth birthday party wearing a fur stole and maxi dress, so a cute top and skirt or a pretty casual day dress with flats is ideal.


Pick Out Items Accordingly

The best way to avoid a last-minute panic is to group clothes, not by style or color, but by occasion so all your casual, dressy and formal dresses are in one area, t-shirts, strappy tops and blouses are in another and shirts, skirts and trousers are somewhere else. That way, if you’ve been invited somewhere all you need to do is go the the correct area of your closet and pick out clothes that match the weather, venue and your personal style and off you go! Let’s assume you didn’t quite manage to accomplish this remember what you’ve worn to similar occasions previously and go along those lines. For most semi-formal occasions you can’t go wrong with a little black dress, smart jacket, or full length coat and a pair of classic navy or black heels.


Mix And Match Accessories

rocksbox-jewelry-subscription.jpg

These are what tie an outfit together so think carefully about colors, styles, and necklines. For instance, if you’re wearing a top with an intricate pattern or detailed neckline you’d do better to keep necklaces straightforward and elegant but if your outfit’s quite plain, then you can bling it up by wearing statement jewelry.

Those with certain allergies may find that hypoallergenic plastic earrings are less likely to irritate the skin while still looking beautiful. Choose accessories that aren’t too fiddly to get on because you don’t really have time to be messing around with delicate silver bracelets. Match your jewelry to your skin tone for better effect; warmer skin tones prefer the bronze colors of gold jewelry, while cooler skin tones compliment silver pieces, but of course it’s entirely up to you.


Be One Step Ahead

When this process works correctly you don’t need worry about being late! While in the shower be thinking about what to wear, lay your clothes out while mentally comparing jewelry and shoes to the dress, and while dressing, consider what makeup look you’re going for. By always being one step ahead you can mentally prepare yourself to make decisions quickly and on short notice.

From Day to Night: The Ultimate Summer Outfit Explained!

Summer is a great season to style. It can be as easy or as complex as you want to it to be, but each outfit can look flawless with very minimal effort. The key to a great summer look is remembering the weather. It can be hot and humid as well as surprise you with unforeseen rain showers, so it’s vital you dress for the weather you have. But this doesn’t mean you have to be boring with your choices. I thought I would explain the ultimate summer outfit that can take your look from day to night without any need for a change.

 

A Maxi Dress Can Take You From Day To Night

The ultimate summer “go to” item is the maxi dress. It works for all body shapes and heights. It’s the most versatile dress you can wear. It can be dressed up or down and have many different styles. It can be quite fitting and body hugging if you want it to be, or it can have a much looser fitting. How you style it can depend on where you are going, but it doesn’t take much to transform this basic into something special.

Flats Look Great In Summer

flat-sandals.jpg

Accompanying your maxi dress could be a great flat shoe. Many people shy away from flats because they find heels much more flattering. But in summer, you can give your feet a break as a flat shoe is just as stylish with summer fashion. Especially with a maxi dress. You can wear a sandal that has some embellishment on it, or something more simple and plain. The main thing to think about in summer is that the heat can make your feet swell. So it’s vital that you stay comfortable.

Statement Jewelry Will Transform Your Look

A statement piece of jewelry can make your look so different. It’s as simple as adding a colorful necklace to a plain maxi dress, and your whole look is instantly transformed. Considering pieces from brands like Diwah would be recommended. The more colorful and bright the jewelry the better the look can go. You can take this time to be more adventurous with your choices.

 

Don’t Forget The Other Accessories

aviator-shades.jpg

While on the subject of accessories, try and not forget the other important features. Things like a decent bag and a great pair of shades would be a good place to start. Sunglass shopping can be difficult, so try and pick a pair when you are with someone who can give you an honest opinion. You may find that you end up picking a style that doesn't suit you.

Natural Makeup Will Always Be A Winner

Finally, summer is the perfect time to rock a natural makeup look. This means wearing a BB Cream instead of a heavy foundation. It might mean adding a bit of bronzer to your cheeks to give yourself a natural glow. A flick of mascara and a bit of lip gloss and you are good to go.


I hope this has inspired you to create your ultimate summer look.
