Monochromania: Mastering Tone-on-Tone Style!

Welcome back to The WearHouse blog, your ultimate guide to all things stylish and sustainable. This week, we're diving into one of the most sophisticated and timeless trends in fashion: monochromatic dressing. Our latest collection is all about mastering tone-on-tone style, and we can't wait to show you how to achieve this effortlessly chic look with pieces from our amazing resell boutique.

The Elegance of Monochromatic Fashion
Monochromatic outfits are all about creating a harmonious look by wearing different shades of the same color. This trend is not only visually appealing but also incredibly versatile and flattering. Here’s why you should embrace it:

  1. Sleek and Streamlined: Monochromatic looks create a long, lean line that elongates your figure.
  2. Easy to Mix and Match: With various shades of one color, you can easily combine pieces to create multiple outfits.
  3. Timeless Elegance: This trend transcends seasons and always looks polished.

Emilia's Tone-on-Tone Looks
Our featured model is showcasing stunning monochromatic outfits, all sourced from The WearHouse. Here’s a glimpse into her looks:
  • Soft Neutrals: Starting with a creamy beige palette, she pairs a cozy cashmere sweater with tailored trousers and a chic trench coat. The varying shades of beige create a sophisticated and cohesive look.
  • Bold Blues: In another ensemble, she rocks different hues of blue. A navy silk blouse tucked into light blue high-waisted jeans, topped with a royal blue blazer, shows how easy it is to play with intensity within a single color.
  • Pretty Pastels: For a lighter approach, she combines pastel pinks with a blush-toned cardigan, a rose-colored midi skirt, and soft pink loafers. This outfit is perfect for spring and adds a touch of romance to her style.

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.

Join Second Story:
Discover the joy of consignment shopping at Second Story. Experience the thrill of finding hidden treasures, supporting sustainability, and giving your items a chance to continue their story with someone new. Whether you're dropping off your items, browsing our collection, or contributing to our community, we're excited to have you join us on this consignment journey.
