Sheer Genius: Embracing Semi-Transparent Style and Smart Accessories!

Welcome to the WearHouse, your ultimate destination for all things fashionable and trendy. Today, we're diving into the world of sheer genius, where semi-transparent style takes center stage, accompanied by smart, double-duty accessories. Get ready to explore the elegance and versatility of this fashion-forward trend as we showcase the best pieces from our women's consignment boutique.

Sheer Delight:

Sheer fabrics have been making waves in the fashion industry, offering a delicate and alluring touch to any outfit. From sheer blouses to dresses and skirts, this trend allows you to play with layers and create visually intriguing ensembles. The key is to balance the transparency with strategically placed opaque elements for a sophisticated and tasteful look. Consider a sheer blouse paired with a camisole and high-waisted trousers for a chic office attire, or opt for a sheer maxi dress with a slip underneath for a romantic evening ensemble.

Layering Magic:

One of the remarkable aspects of sheer clothing is its ability to enhance your layering game. By incorporating sheer pieces into your wardrobe, you can create depth and dimension effortlessly. Experiment with sheer kimonos, cardigans, or dusters to add a touch of drama to your outfit. Layer them over a simple tank top or a classic little black dress to instantly elevate your style. The sheer layers will add movement and texture, turning heads wherever you go.

Double Duty Accessories:

To complement your sheer looks, turn to smart, double-duty accessories that not only enhance your style but also serve a functional purpose. These versatile accessories can effortlessly transition from day to night, allowing you to make a statement without compromising practicality.

  • Scarves: Scarves are timeless accessories that can be worn in various ways. Opt for a sheer scarf in vibrant colors or intricate patterns to add a pop of visual interest to your outfit. During the day, drape it around your neck for a chic and lightweight layer. In the evening, transform it into an elegant wrap or knot it into a stylish belt.
  • Statement Belts: A well-chosen belt can work wonders for your outfit. Look for belts with unique buckles, embellishments, or contrasting textures. Use them to cinch your waist and add definition to flowy sheer dresses or oversized tops. Alternatively, wear them as headbands for a boho-inspired look or wrap them around your handbag handles for a touch of sophistication.
  • Bold Jewelry: When it comes to accessories, don't shy away from bold jewelry pieces. Chunky necklaces, statement earrings, and stackable bracelets can bring a much-needed dose of glamour to your semi-transparent ensembles. Choose pieces that complement the colors and textures of your outfit, creating a harmonious balance between the sheer elements and the accessories.


Sheer genius is all about embracing the delicate allure of semi-transparent style while incorporating smart, double-duty accessories into your looks. At the WearHouse, our women's consignment boutique, you'll find an array of fashionable pieces to help you rock this trend with confidence. So, step out of your comfort zone, experiment with sheer layers, and accessorize wisely to achieve a fashion-forward and sophisticated look. Happy shopping!

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.
