Barely Worn Special Occasion Dresses
As resale and recycling addicts, we love finding terrific women’s consignment goodies all year. But at Holiday time, it makes more sense than ever. Why? Think about it – most women only wear their special occasion dresses or outfits once or twice. Unlike a tuxedo, a special occasion dress is memorable (or you hope it is!) Family get-togethers, weddings, Holiday parties; all of these events include photos and a lot of memories – what you wore is likely to be recalled by other attendees. That’s not a bad thing, but it’s certainly a disincentive to showing up in the same dress. So the dresses are more likely to be in excellent, like-new condition! Of course, that’s part of our criteria when we accept any clothing for consignment!
Often Spendier When New
Upscale and fancier party dresses and attire tend to be a bit pricier that what we wear everyday. This is largely due to more luxurious fabrics, labor-intensive detailing, or because we’re more apt to buy designer label clothing for a special occasion. Those elements combine to make for a costlier garment. This is where buying a used designer clothing piece is to your biggest advantage. The savings are even better than day-to-day clothing because there is a limited window of opportunity for resale shops like Here We Go Again to resell them. The Holiday season is relatively short – and so they are more likely to be priced at a lower percentage of the original price.
Mix It Up
Just because it’s the Holidays doesn’t mean you have to wear a dress to every event either. Our consignors bring us plenty of pretty, sparkly, colorful tops, with detailing like beaded accents, lace trim or a gorgeous neckline just waiting for the perfect necklace; everything from simple to spectacular. Since many of us attend multiple Holiday events with varying degrees of formality, we need more than one option. By dressing up your favorite pair of pants or a simple pencil skirt with a variety of special tops, shoes and accessories you can create a completely different look.
Don’t Forget Accessories!
Adding a fun necklace, scarf, shoes, belt or sparkly designer consignment clutch is an easy way to get a lot of bling for your special occasion budget. For all these reasons, you’ll get more bang for your Holiday shopping buck when you shop upscale women’s consignment stores like Here We Go Again for the Holidays!
