What are your summer closet essentials?

ANYTHING PASTEL OR FLORAL! Extra points if it doesn’t make me too hot!

How would you describe your personal style?

I would say my style is cottage core, but with Miss Honey from Matilda vibes. My coworker said I remind her of an artsy Preschool teacher!

June 21, 2022 It’s Time for Summer Slide Sandals

Along with pool parties, popsicles, and vacation plans, it’s time for summer slide sandals!

Seeing them trending on fashion sites and magazines — and our seasonal selling guide — made us hop over to the Crossroads regional Instagram feeds to see if any were available in our stores.

We were not disappointed. In fact, our finds reminded us that there are all kinds of different summer slide sandals to consider. Here are just 6 that we came across in our search.

Fun & Furry

Maybe not beach-ready, but ready for lounging at home. Uggs, $42.50.

Clogs

Summer slides with a modern twist! Simon Miller, $120 (white), $225 (black).

Vintage

Make them retro if you can. Cole Haan, $28.

Nothing like a jelly sandal for summer trips to the pool. Gucci, price upon request (Market St., San Francisco).

Designer

Did you know some of your favorite designers are making the best summer slides right now? Gucci, $250.

Closed-Toe

A closed-toe version makes them work in the office too! Moschino, $120.

We’re sort of sold on all these choices, how about you? Some will work on a Saturday morning, some will make it to the beach, and some will elevate our favorite sundress.

Visit your local Crossroads store to see which ones they have available. Our stores buy in all day, every day from the public, so our inventory is constantly refreshed. That means new finds waiting for you daily.

And bring in your gently-used seasonal clothes to sell too. You may get those new slides with store credit!

June 16, 2022 Resale Fashion Finds of the Week

You know how we feel: shopping resale fashion is fun, affordable, and eco-friendly.

We call it a treasure hunt because you never know what you’ll find on the racks of our stores. Some come in knowing they need new denim, while others peruse the racks for simply something special. Most wait for a piece to catch their eye, then it’s off to the fitting room to confirm it’s a match.

The resale fashion pieces at Crossroads have been purchased directly from other fashion lovers in your neighborhood. This means a store buyer has hand-selected the piece for the store. The piece is gently used and on-trend. Sometimes pieces are even NWT! They were a great find but didn’t end up working out for the person who sold the piece. Lucky you, swooping in to buy it for your closet.

Keep scrolling to see examples of what you can find in our stores. These items were showcased on our regional Instagram feeds. See links below to follow stores near you!
