Featuring a well-curated collection of contemporary designer resale, this Los Angeles based consignment business made the cross-country trek to bring its finest items to the Windy City. The extremely wide selection of used designer heels was the most popular display of the evening as women drooled over the Christian Dior “Goddess” heels, Alaia lace up booties, and Balmain strappy sandals. A large table at the front of the boutique was overflowing with a selection of handbags, including Goyard and Chanel. Chanel was the hot label of the evening and Chanel jewelry was prominently on display in the back on its own table, in addition to a shelf in the display cabinet. We saw several women stop for pause over the beautiful selection of Chanel boucle jackets. Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, and Prada clothing were fawned over as guests frantically pulled items from the rack. Shoppers sipped on complimentary wine and blackberry bellinis. - Amy Creyer
