For the last 4 months, the days have been strange, scary, and at times monotnous without our old routines in place breaking up the time. Since we have all been more homebound, a lot of us have altered our personal fashion style. We've swapped suits and heels for yoga pants and slippers. But while that is much more comfortable and practical especially when working from home, is it really the best thing for us? We recently spoke with Lana Blanc, acclaimed NYC based Fashion Stylist and owner of The Blanc House about pandemic 'style' and why we should care about it.
As a Stylist, I've developed relationships with numerous retailers and designers that allow me to pull items "on consignment". What that means is I can request items for clients and am only charged for the items they decide to purchase. This is great for my clients because I'm able to offer them additional sizes and styles and it's great for me because I can do so without having to lay out - in most cases - thousands of dollars in order to do so.
Amazon is just one of the retailers that is now offering the same service to consumers via Prime Wardrobe. This new shopping model lets you choose up to 8 items for (up to) a 7-day try-on period and the selection itself is endless with 20,000+ options in women's dresses alone.
Before the 7-day try-on period is over all you have to do is decide which items you'd like to keep and which you'd like to return. Then, you check out online and are only charged for the items you decide to keep. The rest of the items are sent back with free and easy returns that are actually free and easy thanks to a resealable box and prepaid label.
