Plato's Closet: Not just for kids



Platoscloset_4Guilty confession: I've been scouting out designer jeans at Plato's Closet.

That's right, the trendy tween consignment store is more than a Hollister haven. Have you seen what brands teens are wearing these days? Juicy Couture. Vera Bradley. J-Crew. 7 for All Mankind. Too bad my parents never loved me that much.

The pickings are surprising at Plato's Closet locations around Tampa Bay. To be sure, the young-at-heart shopper will have to dig through an avalanche of Abercrombie T's. The reward: I snagged a Ralph Lauren sweater for $6 that has become my wear everywhere weekend top. Thanks, (someone else's) Mom!
