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.
Every true fashionista knows that the real clothing magic takes place when you bring in the accessories. Strategically placed, a belt can help you change the contour of a dress or slouchy top; cinch it around the waist to achieve a perfect hourglass look or well above your waist to accentuate your bust and lengthen your legs. Try a brightly colored belt that contrasts with the hue of your other clothing, and then pick up that shade in a matching handbag or hat. VENUS also carries a line of unique fashion jewelry, including earrings, chokers and bracelets, which will help you finish off your look.
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.
VENUS carries an amazing array of trendy plus size clothing, including plus size tops, dresses, swimwear, lingerie and other fashionable items that can be hard to find. More than that, though, VENUS is about empowering you to make bold choices by staying au courant with the fashions you love. Check out the trends page to keep up to date with all the hottest new looks. Fall back in love with your personal style by shopping online at VENUS.

Nothing comes back the same way, and the jumpsuit of 2017 is not necessarily the same as a version from the '70s. Check out the difference in Raquel Welch's and Tilda Swinton's jumpsuits. There are subtle design tweaks that make any revival slightly different from the original. Does that piece from your "archive" really work now? Ask a trusted friend for a second opinion.

A sloppily cuffed jean. An ill-fitting blazer. A dress that shows just a little too much to be referred to as "tastefully sheer." These are the things that fashion editors and stylists can spot from a million miles away. To those in the biz, the proper proportions of a crop top may be obvious, but for those seeing the trends in a magazine or online, it can be a little trickier to know exactly how to wear everything.
