Trending and forecasting are hobbies. History was her favorite subject in school. This may sound like someone you would find working Downtown at Deloitte but Rhonda Sargent Chambers’ interest are far from that world. As a model turned event planner, and mother of two teenage boys, Rhonda would be more likely to walk into the Deloitte office and start a fashion revolution instead.
Obsessed with fashion, Rhonda can barely get enough research of emerging trends to keep her satiated. Always carrying an innate curiosity about fashion, Rhonda founded her own fashion show & event production company, RSC Show Productions. Rhonda says, “with an amazing crew by my side, I produce small to large experiential events for clients & non-profits with winning results. Guiding our clients events with diligent attention to detail.” Needless to say, she is the go-to Dallas fashionista to help with your next event and we couldn’t be more privileged to have her as a Clothes Circuit consigner and shopper!
We recently caught up with this lovely & fashionable entrepreneur to talk about her feelings on consignment shopping and get her take on the resale industry:
CC: How do you utilize consignment stores? Do you consign gently-worn clothing and accessories as a way to get cash back? Do you shop consignment stores to find designer deals? Both?
RSC: Both! I love to repurpose everything because I hate to be wasteful. So, consigning my clothing and shoes is a fun way to let someone else enjoy my wardrobe! Also, I shop at Clothes Circuit for great pieces to add to my collection. It is a creative way for me to make money, then turn around and spend it in Clothes Circuit by discovering some new treasures for myself. Usually, I’m motivated to search for something very specific to bump up my current wardrobe with a trend color. I mostly look for designer ready-to-wear and the hunt is ALWAYS on for anything leather! The one thing I always find myself shopping for in Clothes Circuit is the perfect blouse. Either long sleeve, short sleeve, white or print they never go out of style. They are the best pieces to have in your closet because you can dress them up or down for day or night.
CC: What is your favorite thing about consignment shopping?
RSC: I love spending the time to search for something fun to wear; you always find something that you may not need but it’s a ‘WANT’… you just gotta’ have it! My motto for consignment shopping in Clothes Circuit is to never leave empty handed!
NOTE: For the record, we like her motto.
CC: Tell me about a great find or the best deal you’ve made by shopping consignment.
RSC: My full-leather Dana Buchman dress was a steal at $120! With my store credit racked up from all my consignment drop-offs, it was like it was free!
Always keeping her philanthropic side alive, Rhonda’s next big charity fashion show this Fall to benefit an organization near and dear to her heart, The Elisa Project. We encourage all our fashionable shoppers & consigners to help support this great cause and a woman we adore, Rhonda Sargent Chambers.
