Hi RefreshEase-ers! Kate here… I have to say, one of the best things about working at RefreshEase is coming into work and hearing Pasha say “Hi sweetie, I have got the CUTEST [insert clothing item here] for you to try on!”

Because, I don’t just work here – I shop here, too – as all of you get to know me, you’ll find out that I’m one of the biggest resale nerds in Chicago — 90% of my wardrobe is second hand, as I believe in our core mission statement: “Reclaim, restyle, renew.”

(And, as I have been shopping second hand designer since I was 16 years old — at *coughnearly40cough* — it’s been a while!)

I digress a little… Last week I came in and Pasha had pulled an adorable little orange and cream print spring skirt for me to try on. And, of course, I fell in love with it and it ended up going home with me. I’ve been trying to add colors into my spring wardrobe this year and this was a great piece for me to start with. Only when I got home, I realized that I have NEVER worn this particular shade of sunny orange… and, I had no idea what colors (other than cream, black and navy) paired with this skirt. So I sent out a text to several close friends (Pasha included) and my Mom asking for advice.

Here’s what I found out: Orange looks great with light blue, lavender, indigo, fuchsia, peach, pink and pale yellow… and sometimes leaf green.

It occurred to me later that I had basically asked my friends (and mah Mommie – who is visiting Chicago this week, stop by RefreshEase Thursday or Friday late in the afternoon and you can meet her) to do is basically what Pasha and I do for our customers via our RefreshEase Racks and personal shopping services.

We identify your wardrobe needs and style preferences, then introduce you to clothing pieces and accessories and we teach you how to create new looks. Plus we show you how to fit those pieces into your existing wardrobe. We gently encourage you to take fashion risks and try new styles, silhouettes and colors that -after getting to know you better via our detailed personal shopping survey- we think will make you look (and feel) like a million bucks.

We are basically the most important neutral you can have in your closet. Don’t believe me? Check out our Yelp Reviews from past and current RefreshEase Rack customers!

Spring is a time for new beginnings and I’m excited to pair my new spring skirt (thanks, Pash!) with a cute colored top (like the ones in my Polyvore below). If your wardrobe needs a little spring spruce up, email us and we’ll get started putting together a RefreshEase Rack for you! Whether you’re looking for one or many new-to-you pieces for your wardrobe, Pasha and I have you covered.
