Label whores will go nuts for the well-edited selection of preloved designer clothing for both sexes at this jam-packed consignment shop. Brand-name castoffs arrive weekly, though not just any Alaia dress will do: Owner Terin Tischer heavily curates her 22-year-old store’s offerings and has strict guidelines as to what she’ll carry (no pleats, nothing older than three years), meaning you’ll only find top-quality and current styles from runway labels like Chloé, YSL and Marni. Though prices aren’t cheap, you’ll spend considerably less on dresses from 3.1 Phillip Lim ($300), a bustier by Alexander Wang ($180), a John Varvatos men’s leather jacket ($450) and shoes from Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik ($80–$350). There’s always a consistent selection of Chanel handbags ($700–$2,100) and, for those with bigger budgets, the shop prides itself on its wall of Hermés handbags—a Kelly might run you $6,000 while an ostrich-crocodile Birkin could set you back a whopping $24,000.
