Calling all style multitaskers! Let us introduce you to a business that combines your love of finding a great deal—and earning cash without lifting a finger. Luxury consignment company Linda’s Stuff (www.ShopLindasStuff.com) is the number one seller of designer fashion on eBay. For the last 11-plus years, shoppers of the site have found coveted luxury labels at a fraction of their original retail values, and the company’s consignors receive big paychecks for selling the designer items they no longer use.
Linda’s Stuff accepts high-end designers, like Chanel, Prada and Gucci in addition to more moderate brands, like Tory Burch, Lilly Pulitzer and J.Crew. Consignors pay no fees, and they earn 75% of the sales price for any items that sell for over $1000 and 62% for any items that sell for under $1000.
All you have to do is pack up a box, and Linda’s Stuff will send UPS to pick up your items for free. Linda’s team will research, inventory, photograph and list your items. You’ll just sit back, relax and watch them sell!
With such service, style and fabulous results, Linda’s Stuff boasts a roster of celebrity clients, including entertainer Paula Abdul, who consigned approximately 1500 designer goodies—including signed Alexander McQueen sandals.
Looking for an affordable, sexy evening dress can sometimes be a daunting task no matter what size you are especially one that can be worn more than once! Well, Bonmarche Plus Size Clothing has a ton that will make you feel as good as you look with an extensive selection of contemporary apparel and accessories for women ranging from sizes 12-24. What really caught my eye was Bonmache’s selection of sexy, sleek and classic dresses for the plus size woman. Not only were they surprisingly affordable (leaving you plenty to snatch up a fab pair of shoes or accessories) but they truly flatter the curvy shape. Bonmarché is UK’s largest value retailer selling affordable quality womenswear in a wide range of sizes (12-24). Ranges include casual and formal separates, outerwear, swimwear, lingerie nightwear and accessories, all designed with the real feminine figure in mind. In 2007, it launched a collection designed in collaboration with David Emanuel, the designer famous for the co-design of Lady Diana Spencer’s wedding dress in 1981. This collection has a slightly higher price point than the main Bonmarché range but still represents very good value for money. Check out some of my fave’s below:
You’ve heard it from Rachel Zoe, and now it has been confirmed – the 70s are back! Not the denim shorts and beaded headbands, but the Halston and Yves Saint Laurent 70s fashion that was all about super luxurious fabrics, decadent prints and silks, and above all else, glamour. Etro is reintroducing flared pants, we’re seeing jumpsuits and lamé at Marc Jacobs, and magazines and celebrities are putting their spin on all sorts of 70s-inspired outfits. Read more…
Eva Longoria’s outfit is perfection! Everything from the white wrap shirt and skinny jeans to the wedges and fabulous bag, each piece can be worn year round and easily transformed into an evening look by adding a skirt. Get Eva’s look for less!
Stella’s a minimalist with a special knack for looking “accidentally chic.” Somewhat challenging to find pieces to keep within her look (particularly the jacket), but always exciting to highlight one of my favorite designers! Get Stella’s look for less!

I usually like Eva Mendes style but this particular outfit is extremly unflattering. I decided to to replace the shapeless dress with a halter maxi and a shrug to emphasis the waist but still stay with the boho look.
