From current events reporting to celebrity interviews and television appearances, Lisa Petty‘s career in journalism is varied and exciting. After contributing to publications including the Dallas Morning News, the Dallas Observer, and the San Antonio Current, Lisa shifted her focus exclusively to fashion in 2010 as Shopping Editor for NBC’s The Feast. With the launch of DFW Style Daily in July 2011, Lisa brings her trusted reputation in the industry to a unique new outlet for Dallas-Fort Worth fashion news and commentary.
Although she’s beautiful enough to be a professional model, Petty prefers to shine a spotlight on others and express her love and appreciation of fashion through her online magazine, DFW Style Daily. Petty loves to discover emerging designers and promote the Dallas design scene. She’s known for her stylish and sophisticated appearance, but this fashionista knows how to rock a Target tee just as well as an Oscar de la Renta gown. We wondered how one of Dallas’ most stylish felt about resale and consignment. We emailed over a few questions, and here are Lisa’s answers:
CC: Have you ever shopped or consigned with Clothes Circuit?
LP: I’ve been a frequent and enthusiastic Clothes Circuit shopper for several years now, but I have yet to consign items from my own closet there.
CC: Have you ever shopped or consigned from other consignment stores or resale shops? If so, which ones do you frequent?
LP: Vintage, resale, and consignment shopping is, perhaps, my favorite retail category! I love the idea of discovering a new treasure, and knowing for sure that the same item isn’t being purchased by a dozen other women on the same day all across the city. Some of my favorite local stops include Zola’s Everyday Vintage, Dolly Python, Uptown Consignment, Ditto Boutique, and of course, Clothes Circuit.
CC: Tell me about a great find or deal you’ve made by shopping consignment?
LP: The amazing deals and finds I’ve discovered over the years are numerous! Some that immediately come to mind are a luxurious Mongolian lamb coat in candy-apple red, a brand-new pair of denim-accented Coach sandals that I wear at least once a week, a perfect ladies-who-lunch handbag by Burberry, and more DVF wrap dresses than I can count.
