"We're not a consignment shop," Sue McCarthy says firmly. "We're a high-end designer retail store." The difference? We get to watch as customers paw through exquisite, expensive bags, scarves, shoes, and dresses, a feast for the eyes of fashion-lovers. Those same fashion-crazed viewers will appreciate the wealth of inside information on various brands, such as when the Louis Vuitton monogram pattern first appeared (1896!) and why the holograms used to authenticate Chanel bags often thwart identification.

Another treat: Though most fashion shows are populated only by model types, Women's Closet Exchange employs a group of very real-looking folks, many of whom could be your mom or grandma. Not only is it refreshingly fun to see people who don't look perfect onscreen, the diversity sends a powerful message that fashion and style are ageless and available to everyone. This plus the appeal of watching a family-run business, similar to Pawn Stars, and a bunch of nice people working hard to do a good job, makes Resale Royalty something more than a fashionable throwaway trifle.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
