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.













Stella





Louis Vuitton

















YSL



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





Dior




















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.
