We love designer shopping but sometimes our budget does not allow for all the gorgeous threads our hearts desire.
We have recently been introduced to Style-Etc.Boutique a luxury online consignment boutique that specializes in fashion for resale.
Zuri Girl had a chat with founder, Kathy Patellis-Schmidt who turned us onto the ins and outs of her business that recently launched January 2015, and we simply love her tech-savvy consignment shopping experience.
The Online Boutique
Never before had we shopped online for previously loved items….but just one visit to the Style-Etc.Boutique website has our eyes dazzling between all the professional images of accessories, handbags, jewelry and shoes looking for a new home. Kathy specializes in carrying designer items that are authentic, well-maintained and very desirable for ladies like us. All pieces are priced at a reduction of 50% or more of the new price of similar items. For the latest seasonal tips and sneak peeks of the newest products to hit her digital shelves, be sure to sign up for her blog updates on Facebook.
Personal Styling and Closet Reorganization
With a background in fashion design and merchandising, Kathy is passionate about offering private styling, consultations and closet reorganization. She is a modern and trendy woman who has impeccable taste and will provide you with excellent service and advice and is happy to work within your budget to help you create your new wardrobe. She would love to get her hands on your wardrobe to help sort though the clutter and work with what you already have. Curious to try her services on for size? Her introductory fee of CHF 100 per hour is well worth the price!

Consignment: Make money on luxury you no longer need
Regardless of whether you hire Kathy to review your wardrobe and style, you may want to use her website to sell luxury items you no longer need. This designer online boutique survives and thrives off the gorgeous items in your closet that could be so much happier receiving a second life in a new home. Everything you see on her website is offered on consignment and is sold at a 50 / 50 split with the owner of the items. If you have items you would like to sell this is an excellent opportunity to clear your closet and make room for something new…. ideally from Style-Etc.Boutique!
