Stylist Nicole Chavez Shares the Art of Finding Consignment Treasures

Posted on


With stylish clients like Rachel Bilson and Kristen Bell, über-stylist Nicole Chavez has the cool girl look down pat. And with her involvement with new consignment site, she’s getting us one step closer to achieving it ourselves! We asked Chavez, the site’s Style Editor, to give us some advice on how to successfully shop consignment. Her top tip: “When it comes to consignment it’s really about word of mouth and recommendations from friends and fellow shoppers. Once I hear about a good store I will go check it out. It’s important that the merchandise is current, authentic and lightly worn or not worn at all.” Which is why she’s so enthusiastic about reFINEstyle, started by Megan Masoner. “What is so great about reFINEstyle, they have taken out the research and legwork for the consumer,” Chavez tells PEOPLE. “The sellers on reFINEstyle are invited/hand-selected so you don’t need to worry, all the products on the site are authentic and in good condition.” With some of the country’s best consignment stores in one place, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your couch to score a good deal — just get inspired by Chavez’s favorite find! “[My] best consignment score — the Venice-print Prada cotton dress, and I found it in one of my favorite NY stores (which is now on reFINEstyle).” Check out the site for yourself now! –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg
