Dress like Katie Couric with TVNewsCloset.com
Do you dream of dressing like Katie Couric? Or is local TV anchor Heather Van Nest more your style? How 'bout a little Gayle Sierens and Kathy Fountain thrown into the mix?Okay, maybe not, but a new Web site that consigns TV broadcasters' cast-off duds has caught my fancy for a few reasons. 1) It's a cool idea. A Dallas-based former news anchor created the site to help those still in the industry, giving them a place to sell clothes that have worn out their welcome on air or to pick up new things on a budget. 2) This stuff is affordable. As in, 60 percent off the original retail price. 3) I know we have some loyal readers who work in TV land, and I want to help my fellow news sisters and brothers out!
TvNewsCloset.com is still in its infancy, so the stock isn't huge yet. (The site needs some dresses.) But ladies can pick up this pair of Banana Republic pants for $18, or this Ann Taylor skirt suit for $40. There are also Bill Blass, Burberry, and Jones New York suits for men.
The site is geared toward TV folks but anyone can participate. So if you are looking to shed some suits or add some to your wardrobe, you might want to check this out.
