Style Blender: A New Way To Shop

We all have items in our closet that we are not wearing for one reason or another. How about trading those items for equally fabulous pieces, of equal retail value? In other words, wouldn’t you love to turn good quality clothing that is just hanging in your closet into fantastic new items?! Well then you are in luck because Bad Joan and her fashionista friends got together and created Style Blender; the place where all of this is actually happening!

Style Blender is a women’s trading club that works on a points value system; once your membership has been approved you can bring in the clothing you are not wearing and Style Blender will give you points for those items. The number of points reflects the item's original retail value so that you are getting more points for expensive items and less for inexpensive items. Those points then become your currency to go shopping!

Check it out....





If you are in LA you have to come by and check it out!  For more info on Style Blender including location information and hours click HERE.

Have a wonderful weekend!

GTBB,
Bad Joan
