One of my cousins got married last Friday so the whole family headed up to the beautiful location to celebrate! She is the second of my cousins to get married and her brother is getting married in October. The family is on a roll! Ha ha.  The wedding was a lot of fun and I even danced...I NEVER dance. Although half the time I was just standing on the dance floor like a weirdo. I can only dance when no one is watching me.

This is the debut of the Tracy Reese dress I bought at Roundabout last year and have been dying to wear! I also wore my new  amethyst necklace from Bubu Ruby on etsy. The seller, Jen, is great! She was super helpful when I wanted a specific stone to go with one of the necklaces I bought.  Jen also asked me to let you guys know about one of the pieces she is selling this month. It's the Tiny Turquoise Necklace ($24) and $3 from each sale will be donated to the MAKE A WISH foundation in the US and Canada. So check out the necklace, and all her other gorgeous jewelry!

Dress: Tracy Reese (Roundabout Resale), Heels: Dolce & Gabbana (Uptown Consignments), Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Net-a-Porter Sale), Watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova (LuckyFABB), Necklace: Bubu Ruby

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.

This past Saturday I met up with Lydia to check out Roundabout's sale (50% off! & a sidewalk sale where items were $10-$25.) Since I liked my Thursday outfit so much, I decided to wear it again so Lydia could photograph it. At Roundabout I tried on a bunch of pieces & walked out with 2 things (photo) I won't wear that often but had to purchase. It's like an episode of Resale Royalty I saw a couple weeks ago, sometimes I buy pieces to fulfill a fantasy life I wish I had. But that's okay as long as it doesn't get out of hand.

I bought a pair of velvet Balenciaga pants that retailed for almost $1000. I paid $35 because they were 75% off plus an extra 50% off! I also picked up a gorgeous Tracy Reese dress with a fun scale-like print for $59 (regularly $475 if eBay is to be believed.) At this point I have nowhere to wear it, but hopefully I'll be invited to a wedding or something soon!

After shopping we had a quick bite to eat and stopped at The Historical Christmas Barn to check out their sale. My sister used to work there and they always have really cute stuff. Before we went our separate ways, we took our outfit photos on a cute stone path behind the store. Prepare for a deluge of photos! (I said deluge like Dori in The Hobbit, he says it funny)
