I was recently approached by the truly lovely staff over at American Fashion Fox, and was asked to check out their online store. Readers, as you know, shopping online creates some anxiety for me. I’m just never sure on sizing and I can’t look over the items, and wind up convinced I’ll get something that doesn’t fit/doesn’t work. Well, I decided to take the opportunity from American Fashion Fox and embrace online shopping and throw caution to the wind. Guess what? It was a total success! I looked through brands I generally know fairly well and was able to guesstimate my sizing without any issues, and used the zoom function to look through the items “up close.” Per usual…I’m finding that my “I’m not sure I can do that” moments are completely unfounded! Hurrah! I’ve learned to online resale shop! What’s next? The Fashion Huntress in space?! Ha! I crack myself up.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) If you’re not yet ready to take a trip to a local resale/thrift shop, online consignment and resale shopping is a bit easier than digging through clothes on your own. Additionally, shopping online for resale means you can still snag clothes at amazing prices without having to dig through the clothes on your own if you find the process overwhelming or intimidating. The prices on both of the online stores are very competitive, which I was told was due to having a good relationship with their buyers (the resale shoppers!). Additionally, they have an online shop that is all vintage and all items begin at 99 cents. You can find their shops here and here. If you have any questions, I truly found the staff to be very responsive and helpful.
2) I don’t normally go all black and white and then wear colored tights and shoes as my statement pieces. However, this was a fun way to change up an all black and white look. Additionally, now that it’s getting warmer out, the challenge of summer dressing at work begins. Sleeveless tops, on their own, are generally not allowed at my work, so I’m all about the layers. I carry a blazer or cardigan at all times and can pop it on before meetings.
Anyone else have online shopping tips? Digging the online resale shopping? Happy Sunday, readers! I hope everyone had a good weekend!
