vinted-alamodest shop

I recently signed up for a really neat app or website called Vinted, which is a service like Poshmark that lets you shop fellow fashionistas’ closets or swap with their items. A lot of the stuff I have on there I amassed from years past that do not necessarily reflect my style or my size. However, I’ve been using it to sell my personal clothes as well. Some of the things I have listed are practically to give away, because I just want to make room around the house! So if you find anything you see from my closet, just send me a reasonable offer. I will most likely accept!

Vinted is free to sign up for, and you get $10 free when you sign up. So with my $10, I bought a really cute 90s inspired circle skirt with sunflowers on it (only had to pay shipping)! I landed on this website, because I was looking for a popular place to sell used clothes that wasn’t eBay or that didn’t have to be vintage-only like Etsy.

If you’re looking for a place to sell your own clothes, I say give it a go… and don’t forget to follow me! I will most likely add something new everyday. It’s a really fun place to get to know other girls as well. I was very flattered when one of the girls who bought my blue velvet dress even started a whole thread on their forum about her purchase from me! It made my day.

They do take a cut of whatever you sell  of course, which is fair. Whatever I don’t sell on here for a while, I will most likely donate to Goodwill.

I also have an Etsy store where I sell vintage only clothes and accessories that you might like to see! I do not discourage haggling ;-)

Are you on Vinted/Etsy?

Style Handbook

Do you ever feel like when you were born, everyone got the handbook to life but you? Ok, maybe not. But when it comes to style, there is no official handbook… but that doesn’t mean we all have to wander around clueless. This week is your guide to style, so pull up a chair, take a deep breath and realize, everything is going to be just fine.

Thank you to Independent Fashion Bloggers for picking my post about Raveonettes last week! I didn’t even notice. It was quite timely because Rob and I just saw them in DC (at Black Cat) last Wednesday! Here is a photo and a video from my Instagram. They are definitely one of my favorite modern rock bands ever.

Always Be Prepared

“You can never be over dressed, or under educated.” says Oscar Wilde. And he is right. The thing about style, is that it always depends on the occasion. Being appropriately dressed (even if it’s overdressed) is something a style seeker must always be ready for. Also, what good is style if you’re not up on substance? This week’s link roundup gets you ready for all of that so you’ll never be caught off guard. This season anyway.

Style Secrets Revealed

There are so many “secrets” in the style industry. It’s all smoke and mirrors, or so they say. We’re here to put an end to that. As bloggers, we like to share those secrets often whispered between friends. No, not who you kissed at the party last night! What to pack on your trip, how to get your sunglasses fitted, what are the best pairs of black tights around, and heck, even compare your wardrobe to that of a woman living in the 1930’s.
