Interviewing Klury.com ~ Luxury Fashion Exchange5/16/2012
Klury.com, an authentic luxury fashion exchange.
The Muse speaks with founder Mandy Russell as she tells you about how her marketing and design background formed an upscale shopping experience in the form of Klury.
Oh to Be a Muse: How did the idea of Klury.com come about?
Mandy Russell from Klury: I was cleaning out my closet and wanted to refresh my wardrobe, but noticed a lack of options to conveniently do so. My goal with Klury.com is to create a way that women across the globe could easily sell their old clothes and exchange them for new pieces.
Muse: Who is the Klury girl?
Klury: The Klury girl is the epitome of the modern-day woman. She has an impeccable sense of style. She's quite the multitasker, loves cocktails with her girlfriends, and has a closet overflowing with shoes, bags and clothing.
Klury: The everyday girl call fill out a quick form, upload a picture of what she wants to sell, then we will make an offer on her item. When she accepts the offer, she prints off a pre-paid postage label and sends the item to us. We authenticate it and verify it matches the description then immediately issue payment. She can choose to receive a check from Klury or store credit. The item is professionally cleaned and posted on Klury for another fashion lover to buy.
Muse: What makes Klury.com different from other designer label discount sites?
Klury: Klury has two unique benefits for users: 1 - buy authentic designer clothes, handbags and accessories for up to 90% off retail; 2 - sell their own items for fast cash. Klury.com focuses on buying inventory directly from fashionable women across the globe. Our broad inventory is highly curated.
Muse: What is it like having your dad as a business partner?
Klury: It's been great having my biggest support as my business partner. He has taught me so much about running a business and always motives me to put my all into everything I do. It's been fun for me as well teaching him about designers and fashion. He can now identify the designer of red sole shoes.
Muse: Any plans for the future?
Klury: We have plans to expand to additional categories including menswear. We always have a few fun things up our sleeves!

And check out the half glitter nail DIY from my Pinterest inspiration.I'm calling it Ginger Snap because the bottom coat is called Ginger and the sparkle is on top. My sparkle flecks weren't as big as I would have liked, but I think it still looks pretty good.
