Metal Detector: Incorporating Metallic pieces for any Look, Day or Night! 

Hello, fashion-forward ladies! Welcome to The WearHouse - A Women's Consignment Boutique, where we believe in celebrating individuality and embracing unique styles. Today, we're here to unlock the dazzling world of metallic pieces and show you how to incorporate them seamlessly into your wardrobe, from sunlit mornings to moonlit evenings. Get ready to shine and stand out in any setting with our fabulous fashion tips!

1. A Touch of Shimmer for Daytime Chic:

Who says metallics are just for the nightlife? With the right approach, you can effortlessly add a touch of shimmer to your daytime ensembles. For a casual yet chic look, consider a metallic top paired with your favorite high-waisted jeans. The metallic accents will catch the sunlight and create a radiant aura around you. Complete the look with some comfortable sneakers or stylish ankle boots, and you're ready to conquer the day in style.

2. Office Elegance with a Metallic Twist:

Introducing metallic elements into your workwear can elevate your office outfits from ordinary to extraordinary. Opt for a sleek metallic blazer or a blouse with subtle metallic detailing. Pair it with tailored trousers or a pencil skirt for a sophisticated and confident look. The key here is to keep the metallic accents understated and refined, allowing them to add a touch of elegance without overpowering your professional ensemble.

3. Glamourous Evenings with Metallic Allure:

When the sun sets, it's time to let your inner diva shine! Embrace the bold side of metallic fashion by donning a stunning metallic cocktail dress or a floor-length gown for formal events. The metallic sheen will catch the light on the dance floor, making you the center of attention. Complement your evening look with metallic accessories like strappy heels, a clutch, or statement jewelry for that extra touch of allure.

4. Street Style Sensation:

Street style is all about expressing yourself and experimenting with different trends. Incorporating metallic pieces into your streetwear outfits can make a bold statement. Try a metallic bomber jacket paired with ripped jeans and chunky sneakers for an edgy yet chic look. Don't be afraid to mix metallics with other textures like denim, leather, or velvet to create a dynamic and head-turning ensemble.

5. Effortless Day-to-Night Transition:

One of the fantastic aspects of metallic fashion is its versatility, allowing you to seamlessly transition from day to night. Start with a metallic midi skirt or a metallic jumpsuit for your daytime activities. As the sun sets, swap out your flats for heels, add some glitzy accessories, and you're ready for a night out on the town. This easy transformation ensures you're always dressed to impress, no matter the time of day.

At The WearHouse, we believe that fashion is an art form, and metallic pieces offer an enchanting canvas to express your personal style. Whether you're looking to add a subtle shimmer to your daily wear or unleash your inner diva for a glamorous evening, our curated collection of metallic treasures has something for every taste and occasion.

So, ladies, embrace the mesmerizing allure of metallics, and let your style radiate like precious metals. Step into The WearHouse - A Women's Consignment Boutique, and discover the magic of metallic fashion that transcends day and night! Happy styling!

Welcome to Second Story, Albuquerque's premier consignment Boutique, where excellence, quality, and style are our top priorities. If you're already familiar with the exceptional standards of Gee Loretta!, then you'll know that our commitment to excellence extends to our consignment offerings as well. 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.
