Fashion Hunters: Road Trip!


Consigning fashion road trip to the Hamptons!

First up designer who got her start working with Coco Chanel, Jackie Rogers. Score!

They picked up a Jackie Rogers Ombre Dress (retail 5k),a gold dress (retail 5k) a neon gown (retail 3,500), and consigned all three pieces for charity.

Next Hampton victim, a friend of Second Time Around store manager Karina, Amy, she spills the best news ever, there's a vineyard that will be hosting a fashion mobile store! Oh heaven, how could get that sound any better? Oh here's how, Amy explains it, its like instead of a popsicle you get a stiletto.

Ambria scored Moschino colossal size 10 pumps for $150! Amy also busts out a sequined black and sapphire maxi skirt by Alberta Ferretti (normally priced at 3k. ) they got from her for selling price at 1k. Slap an Italian designer label on that and it sells like hotcakes, or like Alberta Ferretti..cakes...

Next stop, the vineyard fashion mobile party! The fashion mobile is actually called Styleliner. Basically every girls dream closet, filled of vintage jewelry. Ambria realizes she has a shopping problem and is quite depressed that she cant afford 500 dollars worth of jewelry like her fellow shop friend can. She says she could "shop and then die." Not sure what that means or what kind of cry for help that is.

Ok back to business,
Last consigner Amy #2 , Tom Ford for Gucci when Tom Ford was the creative director during '94 and '04, which means its a collectors piece (2k retail- shop price $600), and a Calypso caftan (shop price $160).

                                                    

They scored 8k in revenue for their shop during this classy fashion hunting trip in the Hampton's!
