SECOND CHANCESThursday, August 31, 2006 12:00 PM
If we know one thing, itâ€™s never to wear our designer duds when hanging out with the kidsâ€???especially if weâ€™ve closed our eyes, slapped down the Amex, and paid full price.
You might feel differently if those hautest of haute items were from Revival Boutiqueâ€???the ultimate in second-hand chic. This consignment and vintage boutique with roots in Long Island, New York, is now online and stocks only the best designers like Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Chloe. All the items from shoes to dresses, bags to sweaters, and more are handpicked, have barely or never been worn (with original price tags still on to prove it), and sell for numbers that feel more like sale than splurge.
Their vintage merchandise lets you keep up with the latest-oldest looks without enlisting the help of (and shelling out the daily fee for) a celeb stylist like Rachel Zoe who has scoured vintage stores for her A-list moms Jennifer Garner and Kate Hudson.
And now you wonâ€™t think twice about wearing your Dolce and Gabbana jeans out for ice cream.
