The Scene
After work, I decided to wait out the traffic and pop into a resale store cleverly named Haute Seconds. Hadn't stopped by in years. BIG MISTAKE.

We are talking Christian Louboutins for $300 BIG!!!!

Have never ever NEVER seen such a selection of red soles in a resale store. Apparently there is a size 8 customer who works in entertainment and is given Louboutins and Louis Vuitton bags for free. Wears them just once and then comes in and consigns them.

This shoe - which has haunted my dreams for the last year - was worn just once and then discarded because of the white dot that your toes cover anyway!!!! Rich people kill me.

Alas the only pair in a size 9 were these beauties. A little too much like the Kate Spades I just bought. Wah.

But the rest of the shoe collection more than made up for it.


Louis Vuitton


This pointy pump with the wood heel that I've loved for a year? Just $100.

They even had Guisseppe Zanottie animal print.

And unlike many resale places the shoes often came with the box.

The clothes were a dream too. Missoni


St. John

Nannette Lepore

And the bags - god GOD the bags!!!!!

This YSL patent leather one almost came home with me.

In the end I might have bought two DVF dresses, a St. John jacket and an Et Vous top. Pricetag? Less than $300.

Go to there. Now.

Ended the night with a dinner at mommy-favorite, Aroma.

Deserved every bite after being such a good investigative Recessionista ;)

The Outfit
Emporio Armani blazer
Marc by Marc Jacobs top
Blue Cult jeans

The Accessories
Me&Ro necklaces
Chloe platforms

The Grade
F is for Fugly Friday Face

The Commentary

Still had polka dots on the brain today.

Pulled out this Marc top that I've decided I bought TOO big.

Covered it up for The Office with a blazer.

And rolled up the sleeves.

Added a pair of jeans

That always make me feel long and lean.

Finished the look with my Chloe platforms.

They will just have to do until I get my hands on just the right red soles.

Wow! I've got to check this out. I had great luck at the Crossroads in Silver Lake last weekend, let's hope my luck is still with me when I visit Haute Seconds!

If I've been very very good, when I die, I would like to end up living out eternity at this store. With a size 8 foot.
