The 5 Best Pieces I Ever Bought From Consignment Stores

For Love and Lemons San Marcos Mini Dress

Happy National Consignment Day! Today I am celebrating the occasion by sharing my most favorite consignment store finds, and exactly where I got them. I LOVE consignment store shopping, especially for unique vintage finds and high end designer pieces.

Here are the 5 best pieces I ever bought from consignment stores.

Derek Lam Shirtdress Midnight Soft White

Vintage Hermes Utility Vest

Cadillac’s Castle, East Village, Manhattan (now closed).

Cadillac’s Castle was my favorite consignment store of all time. I paid $180 for this butter soft, fits-like-a-glove timeless Hermes vest. The only question I had when I found it was, “Why would anyone ever give this up?”


Alexis Hazel Dress Red

Kate Spade Maribou Clutch

Angela’s Vintage Boutique, East Village, Manhattan.

I scored this maribou feathered clutch for $80 right before my wedding in 2011. I wore it to my rehearsal dinner, to countless weddings, and one of my best friends even wore it to her own wedding as her something borrowed. It’s just perfect.

Rebecca Minkoff Wes Moto Jacket

Figue Evil Eye Clutch

Tokyo Joes, 334 E 11th St, Manhattan.

The Figue flagship boutique is one of those spots I would frequent in Nolita and cry silently as I left because I wanted EVERYTHING and it was all so pricey. I couldn’t have handed my AMEX over fast enough when I found this baby for $80.

James Perse Cutout Midi Dress

Isabel Marant Dicker Boots

INA, Union Square, Manhattan, 110 E 13th St.

These $600 boots had been on my wish list FOREVER and I almost fainted when I found a pair of barely worn Dickers in my size for $170. I wear them so much it’s ridiculous.

Chanel Satin Clutch

Navy Satin Chanel Clutch

Tokio 7, 83 E 7th St, Manhattan

I paid $325 for this insane navy satin Chanel clutch and wore it as my something blue to my wedding. I’ve worn it about a million times since, and it came complete with the original box, dustbag and all of the authenticity cards. Not too shabby for second hand.
