So, to help us refresh our wardrobe while still having some cash leftover to actually go out in our new wares, we tapped LGS co-owner Lindsay Segal and Sarah Saddemi, director of operations for some savvy sartorial advice. "Many of us get caught up in purchasing the 'must-have' items of the season, only to find that next year we're ready for something new. At LGS we can help sell last year's trendy looks and replace them with fresh pieces (at a discount!)," says Segal.
When Segal says "discount," she's serious. This thrifty biz has the lowest commission rate in Chicago — only 35% of the selling price — even on high-ticketed items. And if you're feeling like a lazy girl, LGS can even come and pick up your goods. While that's awesome, there's never been a better time to familiarize yourself with LGS than on April 3 (save the date!) from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
The stylish Old Town storefront will be hosting a must-attend spring shopping fete, complete with beauty treatments (hello, Astrowifey!), styling advice, light refreshments, and more. For this night only, for every five items you bring in to consign, you will be entered in a raffle to win The Cambridge Satchel Company large classic satchel. But you better plan on doing some shopping, too, as the cost to attend is $20 for $50 merchandise credit or $75 for $125 merchandise credit.
To help you get prepared, Segal and Saddemi put together a winning roundup of things you should ditch, paired with a rad new on-trend item to replace it with. We know, we know. That sort of defeats the purpose of making more room in your closet — but at least you're being fiscally responsible.
