Gen Headshot 2

Welcome to Crush Luxe! I’m Genevieve and this is my blog, where I post all of the deeply discounted and very fabulous designer clothes and accessories that I find while I am shopping, and then list them for sale to my readers. I am out hunting for great pieces all the time, circulating through about ten stores, stalking sales, clipping coupons and doing whatever I need to do in order to find high-MSRP items (that I love and totally approve of) for super cheap.

I started Crush Luxe in October of 2010.  As of February 2011, I have listed and sold almost 400 fabulous items, shipped to all 50 states and Canada, and garnered roughly 50,000 web site hits!

The truth is, anyone can find clothes on sale. What I do is weed out all the questionables and bring to you the gems – the pieces that you have to hit multiple stores and scour racks for hours to find. I comb them for defects and make sure they are ready to wear and be adored by my kindred spirits: gals who love clothes but have to stick to a budget.

I photograph as many items as possible off the hanger (even the ones that don't totally fit me), suggest ways to wear them, discuss sizing and give my own thoughts about each piece. Then I wrap them in pretty pink tissue paper, package them up and ship them all over the country (1-3 day transit time) to fashion-loving women of all shapes and sizes. I want each customer to feel as if she is receiving a gift when she opens her mailbox to something she has treated herself to and absolutely deserves.

I’ll do my best to give you outfits ideas and guidance on how to wear it. If you have questions, all you have to do is ask! I love to hear from readers and I am always available to give advice on an item or give you the honest truth about whether it will fit you, your style or your body type. You can reach me any time at genevieve@crushluxe.com.
