I was early for a nearby appointment so decided to stop in Consignment Originals. It had been years since going in, and I was surprised to find they have expanded the store to the space next door, and now sell furniture and lots of other home décor items. Since they expanded, it’s not as cramped and crowded as their “competitor” consignment shop in town. As soon as I walked in, I noticed a bamboo bar cart in the window, marked $32 (perfect condition). There was also a sign that had all furniture & home items an extra 20% off! The item was not going to fit in my car, so they put it on hold for me (simple process). I absolutely love the cart – it’s perfect, and I’m definitely glad I snatched it while I could. A week later I was browsing a new home store in Farmington, and saw the SAME exact one for $275!!?!?!?! I definitely lucked out. Check Consignment Originals for some great finds!”
It’s something we do every day — wear clothes! So, it somehow makes sense that we all have a few clothing tips and tricks up our sleeve. Everything from style and fashion to little tricks that help with all of the dilemmas we have with our bra straps, tight jeans, and uncomfortable shoes. These are all clothing tips that made me think “Why didn’t I think of that?!”. So, I thought I’d pass the wisdom on for other people that wear clothes. I figured there were a lot of you, so here we go!

If you are looking for a top-notch consignment store in CT, go no further than the two outstanding places I have come to love – Consignment Originals in Rocky Hill and their newest shop Consignment Originals on Route 44 in Avon! Service, selection, and prices are fabulous. I have saved hundreds of dollars on clothes and gifts for my family, friends, and me at these two amazing shops.
A sale should never be a cue to buy something. I mean, not never, but it should not always be (which is the case for most of us). If you have been waiting for a particular product to go on sale, sure, pick it up, but if it’s a random dress you want just because it is on discount, ask yourself if you’d buy it if it wasn’t on sale. You have your answer.

You know how sometimes you just know things, but don’t realize that you do until someone mentions it out loud. That’s just the case with fashion too, and that’s why we always need tips from experts, fashionistas, and designers to validate what we know. But, often while reading about stuff, we realize how we miss tiny details and how other people have a different perspective to offer! Like they say, the devil is in the details. If you were wishing that it’d be nice to have a list that states it all out for you, we’ve got you covered. So, today, let’s take a look at 50 Fashion Tips that will come in handy for every girl – whether you are a college chica or a lady boss. Ready? Let’s do this.

Shopper of orange for 5 plus years! I’ve noticed a huge shift in morale the last few times I’ve stopped in over the last 3 weeks or so. My review isn’t about my great buys, you know the quality of your merchandise is A+. I wanted to say how happy I am with the staff. They have always been Okay in orange hit or miss staff mostly, but the new faces I’m seeing they have restored all my faith in this location. They go out of the way to help you. Friendly, always smiling and they Interact with people much better than what I’ve seen in the past. Today was a homerun for me. I was having a bad day I stopped in to have some much needed retail therapy. The young lady behind the cash register said hello and told me about the sale with a smile even asked how my day was. (She made my crappy day feel a lot better). I recognized Victoria, who also asked if I needed any help and made small talk with a smile she is always a doll. I wanted to bring to everyone’s attention the young girl with red hair. She told me her name and I can’t remember it. I know it was very unique I made a joke about it being a alias, she responded with a witty comeback about being a retail spy. It really did lift my mood up. I don’t know if she is manager or a shift lead but she is a born leader. That girl is like the energizer bunny she moves around from one end of the store to the next like she has on roller skates. Her attention to us and the staff was amazing She was giving boost of confidence to everyone. They all just just have that I’m here to help you way about them. I’m most impressed that they didn’t make me feel rushed at the end of the night they gave a few shoppers time to make up our minds and me time to add to my purchase. I just wanted to give that team some recognition. They are great. The store looks amazing, love all the new space. It’s like the store had a face lift.
