Chris Barnett, along with her husband walked away from their corporate careers to launch Clothes Mentor<http://www.clothesmentor.com/> in the Philadelphia area 3+ years ago. Chris scours the wardrobes of women in the West Chester + Springfield markets to score designer + non-designer finds alike for her shoppers. Her business model allows designer names to be approachable to an entirely new demographic. Think: $95 Christian Louboutin pumps (originally $700+), JBrand denim is yours for $31 (originally $185)…big time. Plus, Chris pays customers cash in exchange for their gently worn items.

The cool part about this is that CM is essentially giving this money back to the community; it’s going directly to the women in the West Chester + Springfield areas who support local businesses. Chris + her stores also regularly support HOTTIES4HUMANITY, a non-profit that raises money for individuals + families, while supporting local businesses, especially those that are female-owned (!).
