Saving With 6abc
One-day sale of vintage couture clothing
CENTER CITY - May 16, 2013 (WPVI) -- A Pucci clutch for $1000. Manolo Blahnik shoes for $149. A silk Dior sundress for $499.
Tara Destribats of The Fashionaires explains, "We're here for one day only. We're having a vintage couture pop-up boutique. All the items are consignment and we have couture, high-end merchandise with a concentration in Chanel. And it's up to 80% off."
Though there are items at the sale priced under $100, many of the items are so high end, most of us can only dream about owning them, even at the "gently-used" sale prices.
For example, Destribats shows me a silk tulle embroidered Chanel runway skirt that retails for $18,000. Priced at $3,000 for the sale, it's a relative bargain.
In addition to the Chanel, you'll see names including Galliano, Versace, Fendi, Gucci, and Alexander McQueen. And then there are the purses and the shoes.
Destribats shows me a pair of Louboutins priced at $400, and several pairs of Manolo Blahniks, many of which she says were never worn.
The Hotel Palomar is located at 117 South 17th Street, at the corner of 17th and Sansom. The sale is on the second floor.
