A Women's Consignment Boutique

In the WearHouse: "Back in Black!"

Hello, fashionistas! Today, we're diving into the world of timeless style with a color that never goes out of fashion: black. From the classic little black dress to versatile JR knits and stunning Onyx Jewels accessories, our Women's Consignment Boutique is your destination for pitch-perfect black-on-black ensembles that are as chic as they are sustainable.

The LBD (Little Black Dress)

Let's start with the most iconic wardrobe staple of all time: the little black dress. Audrey Hepburn may have made it famous in "Breakfast at Tiffany's," but the LBD is a timeless classic that every woman should have in her arsenal.

At our consignment boutique, you'll find a curated selection of LBDs in various styles, from flirty and fun to sophisticated and sleek. Whether you're heading to a cocktail party or a romantic dinner date, the LBD is your go-to choice. Dress it up with statement heels and Onyx Jewels' black gemstone jewelry for a look that oozes confidence and sophistication.

JR Knits: Effortless Elegance

When it comes to comfort and style, JR Knits knows how to deliver. Their black knits are not only incredibly comfortable but also versatile. Pair a black knit turtleneck with fitted pants and ankle boots for an effortlessly chic daytime look. Add a pop of drama with an Onyx Jewels statement ring or bracelet to make your outfit stand out.

For those chilly evenings, a black JR Knit cardigan is the perfect layering piece. Throw it over a simple black tank top and your favorite jeans for an understated yet stylish ensemble.

Onyx Jewels: The Ultimate Accessory

Black-on-black fashion wouldn't be complete without the right accessories, and Onyx Jewels has you covered. Their black gemstone jewelry adds a touch of mystery and allure to any outfit.

  • Black Onyx Earrings: Frame your face with elegance using black onyx drop earrings, perfect for a night out or a formal event.
  • Onyx Gemstone Necklace: A long black onyx necklace can be layered with other pieces or worn on its own for a bold statement.
  • Onyx Rings: Whether you prefer a cocktail ring or a delicate band, Onyx Jewels offers a wide range of black gemstone rings to suit your style.

Putting it All Together

Here are three fabulous black-on-black looks that will have you turning heads wherever you go:

  • The Classic LBD: Slip into your favorite little black dress, add Onyx Jewels' black gemstone earrings, and finish with a pair of strappy heels. It's the epitome of timeless elegance.
  • Casual Chic: Pair a black JR Knit turtleneck with black skinny jeans and ankle boots. Layer on some Onyx Jewels bracelets for a touch of glamour without going overboard.
  • Evening Glamour: Combine a black JR Knit cardigan with a silk black tank top and wide-leg trousers. Accessorize with a dramatic black onyx necklace from Onyx Jewels for an unforgettable evening look.

Why Choose Consignment?

Not only does consignment shopping let you discover unique, high-quality pieces, but it also contributes to a more sustainable fashion industry. By reusing and recycling fashion, you're making a positive impact on the environment while embracing your personal style.

So, whether you're going for a classic, casual, or glamorous black-on-black look, our Women's Consignment Boutique has everything you need. Make every day a pitch-perfect fashion day, and let your inner style shine with us.

Join us as we delve into the world of Second Story and discover how last season's styles can transform into someone else's treasures.

Selling with Second Story:

We are delighted to buy your quality clothing, shoes, and accessories and offer them for sale in our WearHouse Boutique. Visit us every Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm to explore our curated collection. Our team carefully examines each item you bring, determining its potential for resale. We'll then email or text you an invoice detailing the items we're interested in and their respective values. You have the choice to accept or decline our offer. If you accept, you'll receive a credit at Gee Loretta - an added bonus! Alternatively, we can issue a check if you prefer.

Drop-off Details:

You can conveniently bring your items to Gee Loretta during our store hours, Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm. Our dedicated team is ready to assist you and guide you through the process.

Preparing Your Items:

To ensure a smooth evaluation process, please make sure your clothes are clean, pressed, and placed on hangers. We accept items in "new" or "like new" condition, free from wrinkles, stains, pet hair, or missing buttons. If you're a smoker, we kindly request that you air out or dry clean your items before bringing them in. Remember, the better your items look, the higher the offer we can make!

Items We Accept:

At Second Story, we have a keen eye for fashion and appreciate styles that are in excellent condition, ensuring that our customers find only the best in our Boutique. We prioritize unique and high-quality pieces that stand out from the crowd. 

In addition to contemporary fashion, we have a soft spot for fun and fabulous vintage pieces. If you have vintage fashion treasures that are still in great shape and have stood the test of time, we would love to see them. Vintage fashion adds a touch of nostalgia and character to our collection, making it even more diverse and exciting for our discerning clientele.

Donations and Giving Back:

If we determine that some of your items are not suitable for resale, you can let us know whether you'd like them returned or donated. Donated items find a new purpose at the Annex, a local boutique we helped establish to support women reentering the workforce. Nancy and Joy, the amazing ladies behind the Annex, help us match previously loved fashion with someone who will give them a Second Story.

Specialty Items and GeeLuxe:

For valuable designer items such as Louis Vuitton handbags, Chanel scarves, or diamond studs, our expert, Emilia, steps in. She will thoroughly research the value of the item and reach out to you to discuss pricing and the percentage paid to you upon its sale.
