This well-kept secret stocks previous-season designer goods at a fraction of their original prices, along with inexpensive items from emerging NYC designers. Imagine getting your hands on red-soled Louboutins starting at $380 or a Stella McCartney blouse at 70 percent off, and discovering a showstopping line that none of your gal pals have, such as Marie-Lise Lachapelle's gold-dipped orchid jewelry ($180--$480). Pumps by Jimmy Choo and Brian Atwood run $280 to $420, while clothing labels like Vanessa Bruno and Tsumori Chisato go for $80 to $375. The inventory rotates every two weeks; on a recent visit, we spotted Repetto ballet flats ($180), a studded leather Rafe clutch ($88) and a sweet floral-print La Perla dress ($350). Not to be overlooked are the shop’s unique accessories, including J. Davis Studio’s house rings ($78–$90) and Cyberoptix Tie Lab’s silk-screened neckwear ($48).
