Flutter Sleeved Dress - Lea Carmen

Flutter Sleeved Dress

Happy Wednesday Friends! I am so excited to be bringing this look to you today! Would you believe me that I got this total look for $50?! There is a new gem on Montrose here in Houston that I credit this fabulous outfit to. But before I spill on this awesome location, can you guess which item I am wearing that was pre-loved before I got my hands on it? Was it this BCBG print dress? Or maybe this layered rose quartz necklace?

Hint: that was a trick question! All of the items that I am wearing (minus the suede block heels) are pre-worn items! Crossroads Trading is a national brand that caters to the fashionista that loves a good steal! You can sell, buy, and trade pre-used or brand new in-trend and in-style fashion items at Crossroads. What I absolutely love about their selling program is that you can do so four ways: drop-off items, sell in store, consignment, and by mail. They really have made it easy for their clients to make money off their in-season items!

When I shopped at the Crossroads location here in Houston, off Montrose, it was my first time purchasing pre-loved items! I was impressed at the designer selection. I spotted Kate Spade, Cole Haan, Show Me Your Mumu, J. Crew, and even some Elizabeth and James. Also, I was surprised to see clothing that still had original tags on them! I met the store manager Kim and her staff. Everyone was so helpful and offered great style advice.

There definitely are other stores that operate off the same business model, but unlike other stores this one seemed more upscale. The items were designer pieces that are worth purchasing used. Take for example this BCBG print dress. BCBG dresses retail between $150-$250 easy. I purchased this one for a jaw dropping $20! Like it literally does not get any better than that. This dress and many of the other items I tried on were clean and in great condition. There are sunglasses priced at $12 and jewelry around $15-$20. It is such an awesome concept, that allows fashionistas like yourself purchase an entire designer outfit for $50!

My eye was immediately drawn to each of these items at Crossroads. I loved the lightweight and summery fabric of this BCBG dress, it literally fluttered so delicately in the wind when I wore it for these photos. It will certainly be on repeat in this Houston humid heat! I was inspired by the 60s floral vibe of this dress to pair it with these retro statement glasses. These suede block heels are Lauren Conrad and added a nice overall balance to this outfit! 

Thank you so much for sharing your day with me! If you have never purchased pre-worn clothing before I would definitely try your first experience at Crossroads like I did. If you are in Houston, be sure to check out Crossroads at their Montrose location here. If you are not in Houston, don't worry there are 35 locations across the United States you can see a list of locations on their website here.
