{favorite things} Roundabout Resale

My favorite things posts are usually reserved for clothing or accessories. But today I thought it was fitting to share one of my favorite stores, Roundabout Resale.  Roundabout opened in Westport, CT in 1989 and expanded to New York City in 2008 and currently have two stores there. They recently announced they will be opening a third store in New York City this March. Information on the store is as follows:
Roundabout, New York's leading purveyor of luxury resale and discount couture, is pleased to announce the Spring 2014 opening of a second Upper East Side location at 1100 Madison Avenue (between 82nd and 83rd Streets) having acquired the lease of the space currently occupied by Lumas gallery.
I have gotten some of my favorite pieces from Roundabout at amazing prices.  I mainly wait for their sales but sometimes I go in and just can't resist splurging on a one of a kind item.  Below are some of my favorite buys:

Chloé boots, Cashmere cape, Etro blazer, Manolo Blahnik pumps, Chanel blazer, Chanel skirt,
Cordani boots, Rebecca Taylor dress, Lanvin pumps, Balenciaga pants


And a gorgeous Tracy Reese dress that is waiting for the right occasion. Maybe my cousins wedding this Summer, but there is the slight problem of it being white-ish. But I think it's far enough from a pure white dress that it will work.


And here is some more basic information on Roundabout for those of you who are interested:
Owners Laurie and Richard Perren created Roundabout 25 years ago with the goal of having the best consignment / resale store in the country. With their unique business model they not only offer an amazing selection of pre-owned designer items from America's best closets, but through direct relationships with boutiques, showrooms and designers they are also able to sell current and past season "new" items at a discount of up to 70% off original retail. From cutting edge Alaia to classic Chanel, Roundabout is able to stock the finest labels in fashion at incredible prices.

By providing customers with a similar luxury shopping experience as neighboring high-end retailers, along with the assurance of impeccable condition and quality, Roundabout is able to obtain a higher selling price and therefore a higher return to the consignor than the current fad of online resale sites. Roundabout pays 66% of the selling price to consignors of Chanel, Hermes and Louis Vuitton handbags and 50% for all other merchandise.

  6. I think that the Chloe boots have to be your best buy - I'd been looking at those on NAP but in the end decided to refrain. That dress is gorgeous and totally wearable for a wedding FYI - it's not really white, it's printed. Besides, no matter what anybody says, every one is going to be looking at the bride! :)

  8. That dress is a far cry from being 'whiteish' you would not believe what i've seen people wearing to weddings!

    You have gotten so many amazing scores at Roundabout, the manolos are definitely a favorite.
