Being a designer consignment boutique owner is proving much more difficult than I thought. Not because of the long hours processing inventory or the awkward convos with customers trying to consign their suits from 1982 {and I don’t mean in the cute vintage sense}. No, it’s the nagging temptation to keep 80% of everything that comes in, and take it straight home to my closet.

In business school, they teach us that the number one goal of any business is to be profitable [duh]. I have to remind myself of this every day when I hesitantly stock the racks (and online shop!) with all of the cute stuff I want to keep all for myself.

  1. The dress is very cute. I have a hard time selling vintage because often I am tempted to keep pieces for me. And then I justify it because I tell myself if someone compliments me, it’s an advertising opportunity…

  2. I love the textures, patterns, and colour combo on you. In fact, I might steal them. Especially that pumpkin bag against the browns, whites, and blacks–or is the darker shade on your dress navy?

  3. I am loving that orange bag! I have such a thing for brightly colored bags! This week, I’m carrying a brightly colored turquoise bag :)

  4. That would be a very hard thing to do indeed. Every time I go into my favorite consignment shops I ask the owners how they part with such beauty. You are a brave soul indeed! Luckily, you have tons of cute stuff already, like this adorable dress!

  5. I don’t think I could have that conversation. Yeah, uh… I don’t want this. Kthnxbai. Style is so subjective. I’m sure some women are certain their pieces of garbage are worth something. You’re a brave lady. Not to mention, hanging around new to you duds all day. I’d be in serious trouble.

  6. This dress is beautiful on you, I understand why you are having trouble getting ride of it. If it were my size I’d totally go for it. Love your scarf as well!
