Spoo, happy to do it.



This picture is about eight years old, so she's an old lady now but this is Knoxville and I. She's a very good friend's mini dachshund that I still see all the time. My girlfriend hates that Knoxy ignores her and follows me around.

I do (well, obviously.....haha).

Women's is a whole 'nother world. It'll be a lot easier for you since you're merely helping your wife and not flipping. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for women's stuff selling for tons of $$ or for nothing.

When picking out quality pieces, I use the same techniques as men's labels I am unfamiliar with. Some label styles just look promising. Same with the design of the actual piece. You can easily tell the trendy pieces from the grandma-wear. From there simply use Google.

I accompany my wife into trendy boutiques in the area as well as into stores like Anthropologie. I study the labels so I can spot them in the field.

Only because of an NSync autographed mic. Otherwise, we flounder.

Sorry guys. I had to... :embar:

I know you folks would rather hit the pavement rather than click a mouse, but y'all should still vote.

and if I recall, someone had a massive Hober haul a few months back, so repping SF brands and digging for disgarded treasures aren't mutually exclusive.

Done and done. Clag, I didn't know you ventured over to this side of the tracks.

I know that Ryan Gosling made the puffy satin embroidered jacket hip again, but this is 'MERICA!

Feelin kinda salty I passed on an early Charlotte Hornets starter jacket the other day. Pullover and everything. FYI, I had a Dolphins one in the 90's.

I also echo what others have said. I think it'd also be worthwhile to got to a good mall and see what labels are current and what she likes (kind of like us going to scope out Harry Rosen). Use that as the foundation, both for labels and styles.

Things are, I think, also tougher on the women's side: fashions/styles change quicker and I observe that there's just more women searching the thrifts than men. But there are gems to be had. That NWT Pringle I found. And last time I went out with my partner she pulled a NWT Dear Creatures dress. Not super expensive but recent and trendy. (The only thing that would have made me look twice at it would have been the NWT). So like everyone else, it's all a mystery to me on that side. biggrin.gif

PS Let me know her size and maybe I can keep an eye open.
