January 18, 2024 What’s an Apron Dress?

An apron dress is one of the most versatile pieces you’ll ever own. If you haven’t heard of one before, an apron dress is typically a wrap-around dress with a tie-waist at front. It’s very similar to a kitchen apron and most popular in lightweight fabrics like linen.

You can wear one over anything from a turtleneck to a boatneck tee. Wear it as a simple dress, or layer one over jeans. We know you’ll find your favorite pairing.

More than anything, we absolutely adore clothing with pockets, and you can almost always count on an apron dress to include them. In addition, the wrap-around style allows you to size the dress to your personal liking. This is great when you want to layer in thicker sweaters in winter.

Look for an apron dress–or any of your favorite dress styles–at a Crossroads store location. Make sure to add one to your closet before spring!

You can even bring in pre-loved clothing to sell so you can pick one up with store credit.

 January 16, 2024  The Best Way to Sell Used Clothes

The best way to sell used clothes is in a fashion resale store like Crossroads. We know we’re partial to saying that, but let us tell you why.

For most people, selling their clothes begins like this: staring at a pile of unwanted clothes from a or move.

Sure, you could use Ebay or one of the peer-to-peer selling apps to list and sell each piece individually, but most people just want this pile of clothing to disappear.

That’s where a fashion resale store comes in. You can bring all of those clothes (except for stained and damaged pieces) up to their selling counter and have a store buyer assess each piece for cash or trade credit.

You’ll get more of those pre-loved clothes out of your hair right away, and walk away with cash that day.

That’s why we think fashion resale stores are the best way to sell used clothes. Check to see if there is a Crossroads location near you, or check out our Sell by Mail program.

 January 11, 2024 Inspired by 90s Purses

90s purses have passed through the hands of many of us here at Crossroads, either during the actual decade or as a fun vintage find.

Many handbag designers continue to re-create the most popular designs, making it easy to replicate 90s style with new pieces.

Here are a few of our favorite styles of 90s purses. We couldn’t narrow it down to just one (or even three).

Baguette

It’s the bag that only fits your flip phone, your lip gloss, and your wallet. But that’s OK because its so darn light and sleek.

Drawstring Bucket Bag

This one is perfect for carrying around all your 90s secrets.

The logo bag is brazen, and that’s exactly what it’s going for.

We like this one best in a pebbled leather. Extra credit points for an adjustable strap that gives you multiple options.

Suede Handbag

When the 90s made a nod to the 70s.

Jelly Bag

A jelly bag is never practical, but it’s always cute. Bubble gum pink is our favorite choice.

The bag that will take you from morning to night, because you have big, big plans for the day.

January 9, 2024 Retail Jobs in Fashion: What You’ll Learn

When you’re itching to kick off your fashion career, you quickly learn that retail jobs in fashion are the perfect entry point.

You get a firsthand look at how the fashion industry operates and develop foundational skills that last your entire career. Here are just 3 of the things you’ll learn:

1. Customer Service

One of the best parts about working in fashion retail is the ability to help people look good and feel great about their shopping choices. If you’re the friend people call to help style a special look–or if you just love talking to people–then you’ll up your game with formal customer service training.

2. Trend Forecasting

When your days are spent among racks of the latest clothing drops, you get a front seat look at store seasonal changes. You also learn which items to highlight through visual merchandising. Soon, you know which styles, silhouettes, and trends are most likely to emerge from the runway shows straight into stores.

3. What Sells

It doesn’t take long at the store register to learn what customers love and what they pass on. In a fashion resale store like Crossroads, this is invaluable. You’ll pick up an eye for best sellers and learn which pieces get customers really excited.

 January 2, 2024  The Return of Kitten Heels

Kitten heels are a notoriously fickle trend. They’re either in or they’re out.

But for those of you who’ve held on to your kitten heels from the last time they were trending, we have excellent news: they’re back. Locate them now and start weaving them into your daily wardrobe!

When you love a good heel, this style is easily appreciated. They polish a look without the balancing act that comes along with higher heels. They work especially well with wide-leg trousers and leggings looks.

Keep scrolling to see some of the adorable options we’ve seen in our stores recently, then check out our seasonal selling guide to see even more styles, labels, and trends we’re loving right now.

Which pair would you choose?

Did you notice that they come in various styles too? Outside of the original heel style, there are short wedges and loafers to consider as well.

If you have a pre-loved pair in great condition that no longer suits your style, bring them into Crossroads to sell, trade, or consign. Our stores buy all day every day, and no appointment is necessary. Just add your name to the waitlist and wait for a text or your name to be called!
