Four Ways to "Chic"

Wednesday, October 18, 2017


My dream is to have May Doherty, owner of Chic Consignment, dress me every day. I don't know anyone who can put outfits together the way she can--her creativity is off the charts! So when May invited me to get "dressed" at Chic , I was jumping up and down in excitement! 
Chic Consignment is no ordinary resale store. Chic is overflowing with the most amazing displays you've ever seen AND the most incredible selection of STUNNING new and gently worn clothes, shoes, bags and accessories! It's like being in candy store!  

If you're not in the Andover, MA area, no worries. Chic Consignment sells online and any of these pieces shown in this blog post can be shipped--if still available and I don't buy them that is! They also have fabulous finds on Instagram.

So here I am in my four different "Chic" looks that May just "whipped" together.
