It’s Finally Here!!!!!!!

Spring is finally here and we are totally loving it! The first thing on our agenda was to get some color into our wardrobes! We started off with some colored jeans from PZI. They are super stretchy and don’t get uncomfortable in the heat! pzi springThis seasons Tiffany Distressed Jean (photographed in the center) is flying off the rack! We are taking pre orders at Olivia’s Trunk (contact oliviastrunkng@gmail.com for more info) so make sure you act quickly!!!

The next stop on our agenda was to step up our accessories game. There’s nothing better than a pair of statement earrings or a necklace! They are a quick and easy fix for a simple outfit. Throw on a pair of jeans, a white T-shirt, a statement necklace and you are good to go!

Here are some of our favorites for the Spring:

Shoes too tight? Let’s Experiment.

2 years ago my brother in law gave me some GORGEOUS Prada flats but they were just a little bit too tight at the front. I went to Prada and asked if this was common, they said every now and again they get a couple of people who have complained about the same thing. I came to realize I wasn’t the only one with this problem – and nor was Prada. So I got some shoe expanders but that was an epic fail. It made no difference.

Then someone suggested I put water in a bag, put them in my shoes and freeze them. The idea is that the bags of water freeze, expand and therefore stretch your shoes! At first I laughed. However, after thinking about how many different ways I could wear these shoes, I desperately gave in. I’ve worn them a total of 3 times and this is a disservice to such beautiful shoes. This evening I decided to fill my shoes with a bag of water. Pictures of my little experiment & Instructions (if you want to give it a try) are below.

How Beautiful are these? I hope this works so I can wear them more often!

First I stuffed the shoes with a zip lock bag. I tried to get the bag as far in the shoe as possible. (Any leak proof bag will do).Photo Mar 16, 10 44 47 PM

Next I filled the bags up with water. Make sure you don’t fill them up too much so you don’t stretch a part of the shoe that already fits.Photo Mar 16, 10 48 09 PM

Finally, pop them in the freezer with all your other goodies! Make sure they are on an angle so the water freezes in the area you want. I covered mine with a shoe bag just incase!

PZI Jeans – For girls with a little something extra!!

For all my ladies out there with a little something extra, these jeans are for you. At first, I too was skeptical, however, I am now in love! When the owner of the company first approached me to model for them, I didn’t want to believe that the jeans had the fit he claimed. After trying on a pair I was in total shock. No gap in the back. Fit my waist, butt and thighs properly. No need for a belt. No muffin top??? SOLD! I am so in love with these jeans that I had to bring them to Africa and share them with all my curvy women! You can get all these styles and more from Olivia’s Trunk!

What Exactly Is Luxury Consignment??

What’s luxury consignment you ask? It’s quite simple really…

Bring in your gently used designer babies (luxury brand name bags, shoes and accessories) and while you check out the latest styles in the store, we will review your items. We’ll create an offer based on style, condition, brand and the store’s current stock levels. Once you accept the offer (Olivia’s Trunk collects 20% commission), your items will be displayed for sale. As soon as it’s sold we’ll send you a cheque.

Simple!
