Rummaging through musty consignment shops was a go-to young-broke-and-fabulous pursuit. Then we grew up and got hooked on eDrop-Off, Chicago woman Corri McFadden?s brilliant online biz that deals only in designer goods.
Now McFadden has branched out to the Gold Coast and opened The Collection, a physical boutique with Barneys-level appeal. There, you?ll find those designer goods (in person!), plus rotating ?collections? curated by fashion insiders. ?
On a recent visit, we spotted a gold Gucci jacket for $800 (the definition of a statement piece) and a metallic top and pencil skirt set from Alaïa ($900) just begging to be worn to the office holiday party.
The current collection featured in-store was handpicked by fashion designer and Project Runway star Christian Siriano from his own line--and still up online are vintage pieces from Janie Bryant (the award-winning Mad Men costume designer).
What to expect in 2015? According to McFadden, some mindblowing picks from the ?biggest name there is.?
Keep your eyes peeled, fashion hunters.
