I love when the cards align and bring some amazing opportunities into my life. I was recently lucky enough to meet and befriend the social media specialist for my local Plato’s Closet – her name is Alyssa and she’s an absolute gem. We instantly hit it off when talking about marketing, social media and our visions – and it was all peachy from that point on.
Alyssa has taken the Plato’s Instagram by STORM and is getting recognized nationally by the company at a conference next month in Tampa! I’m super proud and happy for her; everyone give this girl a round of applause.
Aside from my connection through Alyssa – you guys know me when it comes to fashion… I’m always ballin on a budget. I never buy clothes for myself because I can never find quality items, within my style range, with a tight wallet.
For those who are unfamiliar or never heard of it – Plato’s Closet is a chain of consignment stores for stylish individuals to a.) turn in some gently used clothes/accessories for $$$, and b.) score some sweet deals on merchandise SUCH AS clothes, BRAND NAME bags, accessories, jewelry, shoes (including men’s sneakers..) and SO MUCH MORE.
When I heard that I lived so close to RI’s Plato’s, I WAS MIND BLOWN. I instantly went in, grabbed some goodies, and shortly after came back to redeem some of my own clothes for CASH. I love this system because it’s so genius. I just can’t wrap my head around paying so much for quality, stylish fashions and I’m so thankful this place exists for people like me! #BrokeChicksUNITE.
That all said, I’ve teamed up with Plato’s to incorporate some more fashion here on my blog. So far I’ve had so much fun assisting them, being their barbie and modeling whatever they want to dress me up in!
