In the WearHouse: "Rain or Shine: Embrace the Colorful Transition with The WearHouse!"

Are you ready to embark on a journey that seamlessly transitions your summer style into the vibrant shades of fall? Look no further than The WearHouse, your go-to consignment boutique for fashion-forward finds. As the weather shifts from warm sunny days to crisp autumn breezes, we've got the perfect lineup of summer brights and new fall shades to keep you stylish, rain or shine.

1. Embrace the Last Rays of Summer:

As summer lingers on, make the most of those radiant days by donning your favorite summer brights from The WearHouse. Think breezy sundresses in lively floral patterns, vibrant skirts that twirl with every step, and playful tops in bold hues. Channel the carefree spirit of summer with light fabrics and cheerful colors that evoke the feeling of sunshine on your skin.

2. Transitioning with Trenches:

As the first hints of fall begin to paint the landscape, it's time to introduce some transitional pieces into your wardrobe. A classic trench coat is the perfect addition to your ensemble, effortlessly layering over your summer outfits while providing warmth during unpredictable weather. Opt for a trench in a timeless neutral tone that complements both summer brights and fall shades.

3. Welcoming Fall's New Shades:

The changing leaves inspire a shift in our color palette. At The WearHouse, we're excited to introduce the new shades that define fall fashion. Rich burgundies, deep emerald greens, and warm rust tones take center stage, reflecting the cozy and comforting ambiance of the season. These shades are versatile and can be seamlessly paired with your existing wardrobe to create fresh, captivating looks.

4. The Power of Layering:

One of the joys of transitioning from summer to fall is the art of layering. Experiment with combinations of light sweaters, cardigans, and scarves to add depth and dimension to your outfits. Layering not only keeps you warm as the temperature drops but also allows you to mix and match pieces from different seasons, creating unique ensembles that capture your personal style.

5. Footwear Finesse:

Your choice of footwear can make or break an outfit, and this transition period is no exception. Trade in your summer sandals for ankle boots and loafers that seamlessly bridge the gap between seasons. These versatile options are not only stylish but also provide the comfort and support you need as you navigate through rain or shine.

6. Accessories: The Final Flourish:

Complete your Rain or Shine ensemble with thoughtfully chosen accessories. Swap out your straw hat for a chic felt beret or embrace the elegance of a silk scarf. Add a touch of sophistication with statement jewelry that complements both your summer brights and your new fall shades.

At The WearHouse, we celebrate the beauty of every season's transition. As summer fades and fall approaches, our consignment boutique offers the perfect blend of summer brights and new fall shades. So whether it's a sun-soaked day or a drizzly afternoon, you're sure to find fashion that suits the ever-changing weather and your unique style. Visit us today and embrace the joy of dressing for rain or shine!

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.
