3 Halloween Costume Ideas for You

30 Oct

Just a few more days before Halloween. Have you thought of your costume already? If yes, then congratulations! I am sure you are going to have real fun. If you haven’t thought of a costume, however, don’t fret. We have some ideas for you!

Check them out.

CHUCKY

Have you introduced your pretty-fearless child to Chucky? Chucky is perhaps the most-feared doll ever (even scarier that Anabelle). So, if you want to enjoy some time scaring the little kids on the street, you might as well scare them big time. Sport some Chucky attire and pair it with your favorite red sneakers. I am sure you will find one at home.

TIGGER from WINNIE THE POOH

On the other hand, if you want to be the cute one, you can just go shopping and look for some onesies for adults. This costume usually is a full-body jumpsuit and shows orange-and-black stripes representing that of a wild tiger. It also has a matching headpiece that has a sculpted plush rendition of Tigger’s face on top. Elastic bands around the wrists and feet make sure the costume stays snug on you while you frolic around with Pooh Bear. And then pair it with your favorite Converse classic sneakers. As what most people say, “When in doubt, wear a pair of Chuck Taylor and you’re good to go.”

ROCKSTAR

No one goes wrong with a cute rockstar outfit. So if you’re not into wearing costumes or into cosplays or if you simply don’t have enough funds for it or maybe don’t have the time, then go out and enjoy with a simple (or not!) rockstar look. To complete your look, go for a high-cut sneakers (and maybe some dark lipstick). It will do the trick.

4 Sneakers You Can Rock This Halloween

25 Oct

Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s the best time to be creative — even with your sneakers! Here are five on the list.

Vans Classic Slip-on

This pair rocks a skeleton design that goes well with your simple plain black jeans and shirt. Or you can go for the funky style and be as creative as you want to be. For inspiration, you may want to watch Stephen King’s “IT”. You’d get a lot of awesome ideas for your Halloween.

Nike Little Posite One “Magma”

SAD NEWS: This won’t be available until November 7.

GOOD NEWS: Available for both men and women.

Asics Gel Lyte Speed

This pair represents all the colors associated with Halloween and so much more: orange, black, grey, and neon green. But I bet you, this wasn’t created and designed for Halloween. No matter what costume you decide to wear (or not wear) people will know you’re in the Halloween spirit by looking at your feet.

Saucony Grid 9000 “Hallowed” Pack

This is, by far, a personal favorite. Although it was specifically designed with Halloween in mind, the Grid 9000 “Hallowed” Pack, this pair isn’t just for the holiday. It’s for everyday use as well! So if I were you and if I were a huge Halloween fan, I’d definitely add this to my collection.

Tips on Consignment Selling

14 Oct

If you aren’t sure about what kind of business to venture in, you might want to consider selling items on consignment. At first, consignment selling might be a tricky one; however, it has several tips:

1. Check the shop out.

Choose the retail shop wisely. If you have to do physical visits, then do so. This is a crucial part of your consignment journey as you will be dealing with them for the entire duration that you are doing the consignment. Also, it is important that while you’re there, you check merchandise condition, how merchandise is displayed, and the prices of comparable items.

2. Determine it matches with your products.

What products do you want to go on display? Look for consignment shops that sell the same general type of merchandise you are offering. For instance, if you are into sneakers, then go for a shop that is able to provide you with your supply regularly and on an on-demand basis, in cases where there would be high demands for it.

3. Be sure to get the terms in writing.

One word best describes this. AGREEMENT. Have everything on paper. Spell out the agreement with the retail store in a written contract. Get the owner or buyer to sign and agree to your terms regarding the payment schedule, responsibility for lost or stolen goods, and display and upkeep of the merchandise. This is very important not only in consignments but in every endeavor you put yourself in. It’s a risky world after all.

Another tip for newbies would be to remember that consignment selling isn’t always for you. There are times when it works and then there are times when it won’t. Don’t give up. Do some trial and error and you will basically find a product or merchandise where you can finally say, “This is it!”

#NeverThrowAway: Discover the Beauty of Consignment

2 Oct

Did you know that consignment is one of the best and smart ways to make sustainable fashion choices and at the same time earn extra money?

Great, isn’t it? Now…

Did you know that The RealReal is having there first-ever National Consignment Day today — October 2? Yes, you read that right! The RealReal is celebrating its first National Consignment Day with #NeverThrowAway.

As one of the people who are into consignment, I’d like to share just why you should do consignment with The RealReal.

You Save Pounds of Textile
With 2.5 billion pounds of textiles saved from landfills through resale, consignment is not only financially smart, it’s also sustainable.

Just imagine yourself being one of the reasons why textiles are being saved and are used in a fashionable and efficient way. You’d be more motivated to even do more consignment and even push yourself to shop on stores that promote consignment!

For instance, with www.therealreal.com/women, you not only get to choose from a variety of designs and products, you also get to help the community as you can actually resell them and pay through consignment.

#NeverThrowAway what you can save and re-use or resell.

Testing the waters
Consignment sales is the best way to “test the waters”. With this, you’d be able to learn if a product sells well or not. It saves your from the risk of major financial loss.

It would also benefit parties as they are now skipping the lag times between selling stock and new orders arriving. Thus, you’ll have what you need then and there and just keep the shop restocked. Wit this, the inventory is basically being replenished the moment it sells.

Nurture a better supplier-retailer relationship
Through consignment, supplier and the resellers are able to form a relationship like no other. They are able to get feedback from each other that would benefit them both as suppliers and resellers. Since both of them are so much involved in the process, they know what levels of inventory are turned over in particular time periods. This is best for establishing a system that provides realistic order quantities that suit both the former consignee and consigner. Thus, this would eventually lead to being able to order the right amount and sell the right amount.

The conclusion, the use of consignment sales is one of the best ways to earn extra money, help save the community from too much surplus being thrown away and not used, and being in charge of your time.

3 Tips to Keep Your Favorite Sneakers Safe

22 Sep

If you’re travelling or are moving from one home to another, it is important that you take the time to pack your shoes the right way. Thus, developing a plan is the sure way to go.

Clean

Before packing your footwear, be sure to have them cleaned. Each shoe comes with care instructions. Follow these instructions to minimize damage and harm to your sneakers. If you have sneakers that have been unworn for a long time, make sure that you check these out as it might have some insects inside!

Shape

Retain the shapes of your shoes as much as possible. This is a bit tricky when travelling but very doable when moving from one home to another. For instance, if you have boots, be sure to stack in papers so that it won’t wore out.  When travelling, you can put in your socks and other travelling items inside the shoes so the shape is not distorted.

Protect

Secure a shoe travel bag if you can and put all your shoes there when packing for a travel. On the other hand, if you are moving from one home to another, you can protect these pairs by placing them back in their original boxes.

These three simple tricks can do wonders when followed really well.

August Sneak Peeks: 4 Sneakers You’d Surely Love

20 Aug

A long time ago, shoe brands such as Nike, Adidas, and other famous brands would surprise us with new sneakers once or twice a month. However, today, with so much going on, it is not surprising that we see these shoe labels release multiple pairs not just in one month, but in one weekend! Isn’t that amazing?

That is why here are SneaksTeens, we are trying our best to provide you with the latest updates on shoe releases as much as we can.

For August, here are three sneakers you’d surely love.

Nike Zoom Flight Bonafide

The Zoom Flight 95 makes a comeback with its “Plum” coloring that’s really perfect for the season — Summer. Its thick white midsole is a introduction to the bug-eyed details. On the other hand, its Flyknit upper serves as an easy access point for your foot, making it easy for walking and chilling.

Nike SB Blazer Mid “78-17″

This Nike SB Blazer Mid is the best representation for Lance Mountain’s inept love for the sport. The colors reflected on the logo is inspired by the 70s. The ’78 being represents, on the other hand, the time when Mountain saw the Blazer model for the first time.

Adidas Originals NMD City Sock 2

Guess what’s back? The NMD City Sock 2 (CS2). This new release provide more comfort with its white BOOST Cushioning support. It also has a Primeknit upper hosting which is a perfect compliment for the contrasting black-and-white zebra coloring throughout.

Rockin’ with the untraditional sneaker combo

30 Jul sneaker-outfit

It is given: street style loves sneakers.

That is why fashion enthusiasts have been trying to incorporate sneakers into all kinds of wardrobes. However, not everyone is successful in combining old outfits with today’s sneakers. The truth of the matter is that unexpected pieces like skater skirts, mini-dresses, and midi skirts are great with sneakers. But, it is easier said than done.

Many fashionistas know that attempting to style one’s self in this outfit isn’t as easy as it seems. That is why in an attempt to help, many have given their tips.

1. Choose your sneakers wisely. The foundation of a great unexpected sneaker combination is a great pair of sneakers. The goal is to create an outfit that looks relaxed, modern, and sleek. If you’re going to wear running shoes, look for flatter, streamlined styles like the Nike Free RN in black. Classic Adidas give most outfits a more urban touch. Converse are also a fantastic option to make a look appear more playful and easy.

2. Pay attention to proportion. Unlike pumps, slingbacks, or nude flats, which visually elongate the leg, sneakers tend to have the opposite effect. When paired with an item like a midi skirt or a bohemian dress, sneakers can make a wearer look stocky or awkward. That’s why fit and proportion are so important. In general, sneakers look better when coupled with shorter hemlines. For an urban, high-low outfit, try pairing them with a skater skirt and T-shirt. For a more feminine, 60s-mod ensemble, try combining a pair of sneakers with a mini skirt or dress. If you’re thinking of experimenting with sneakers and a midi skirt, start out with a tighter-fitting piece that hits just below the knee; a monochromatic theme will help to give the illusion of length and make your outfit appear more cohesive.

3. Strive for purpose. When trying to develop an unexpected sneaker combination, you want to look like you originally intended to pair your outfit with sneakers. Sporting sneakers with a suit, for example, will make it seem as if you’re a tired employee commuting to the office; wearing them with an overly-busy, messy outfit can make it appear like the sneakers were a sloppy afterthought. To create intent, treat your sneakers like they’re the centerpiece of your ensemble; all other pieces should revolve around them.

Sneakers are a painless way to make a look appear more comfortable and contemporary. However, you have to know what looks good with what.
