How to Shop Second-Hand Gifts Like a Boss (Part II of II)

Well here we are friends: Hanukkah’s passed, it’s just days ‘til Christmas, and if you have, say, a life, some things have slipped through the cracks. To combat the gift-giving aspects of your predicament, here’s the best tip I’ve got:

What: Anything lululemon

*Where: Trusted Upscale Brick and Mortar Consignment Stores (at this point it’s too late to order online)

SHOP IT LIKE A BOSS: Go for signature (new with tags) leggings - it’s what put them on the map. If this feels too intimate, grab a fun layering piece or accessory -- an infinity scarf, a loose fitting tank, tee or hoodie -- in good condition. You can always have staff help you with your final selection: there’s usually an expert on-hand to assist and they tend to be very good at what they do.
