You know that beguiling voyeuristic moment of peeking into another woman?s closet? Now take that moment and multiply it by 50. That?s how we feel about Vaunte.
Taking online consignment shopping to the next level, Vaunte founders Leah Park and Christian Leone (previously of Gilt Groupe) have scoured the streets of New York, San Francisco and L.A. to bring you the cities' most covetable closets. In other words: the chance to shop the ?old rags? of the most fashionable and spotlight-loving socialites.
Here?s how it works: Sign up and create an account (the lovely people at Vaunte have given PureWow readers exclusive access). Then get browsing. With pieces like designer Alex Kramer?s Galliano black crepe skirt and a killer leopard-print coat from Cosmopolitan magazine?s Karen Larrain, Vaunte is a wormhole of amazing finds.
But Vaunte is more than just a shopping destination--it?s an obsession. Due to the fact that these items are not mundane necessities, but rather treasures that tell a story, we find ourselves checking back constantly and thinking, She?s getting rid of that?
Best of all, Vaunte embodies a consignment paradox: Hit the ?Not your size?? button and Vaunte will email you if they come across the item in your size. Because sometimes good things really do come in twos.
