    Shopping for closeouts - How does Rachel shop for closeouts?

    I scour the web…If I know what I am looking for I will take a picture of it and use Google Lens (if you're not using Google Lens You're missing out BIG TIME!

    Here is a Link to my Blog - Get the BEST price on (or find) anything - Google Lens!

    This ensures you see how the item you are looking for is priced throughout the internet 

    Know how to sort on websites?

    (if you don’t know, Here is a Link to my Blog - The Shopping Deadline )

    KEY POINTS: When I shop online, one of my best friends is the “sort” option. If the site you're using has the option to sort by size, price, color, and condition - use it. If you're looking for a specific item like a black mini dress, you will want to type that in the search bar and then start sorting by…

    Your size! (I know I always try to size down when I know I should size up).  Something to keep in mind: if you have a good tailor and see an amazing deal on a larger sized item, take it! It could be a good option turned into an amazing deal after alterations.  I then sort by price - low to high - and if given the option on a resale site, I will add the option of condition and start with the top tier of excellent, pristine, and, at times, very good.  Some sites do not have this option, so you rely on the description and system by which that site labels the condition of the items. This is important. When buying, remember to check the description or scale offered on the item you are purchasing to make sure it is the condition you're expecting and always check measurements (which means know your measurements… I know, but this will help you BIGTIME). 

     I use this sorting option even when I am not shopping resale (gasp) which is usually on bedding or homegoods. It’s an excellent option to use on all retail websites.

    How to know what to look for? What you should be looking for based on trends, colors and styles in 2023

    Read My Blog : 2023 Viva Magenta & More!


    Pick yourself up some cardigans and cowboy boots!  I love that oversized cable knits are still in and anything with fringe.  Also, those cowboy boots you bought as an investment piece (good for you) they're staying in 2023! 
    If you are lucky enough to find a fair isle sweater with some neon pops of color in it, do not get rid of it! (like I did last fall)  The pattern is in and trending in 2023.
    If you like a lower heel like me, then you won’t want me to tell you that stilettos are back in, and so are silhouettes with intimidating shoulder energy (aka - shoulder pads)
    I am happy to announce that statement coats are going to be “hot” in 2023.  I love a good design and pattern in a wild color to get me out of my comfort zone.  What about you? 

    What about my black coat? Well, all black is in too, so deck yourself out!  

    Neon Accents Fair Isle Sweater, Mock Neck Long Sleeve Dresses, Cardigans in Bright Colors or Patterned or Printed.
