Python Trim Booties


This never worn pair from Proenza Schouler (perhaps a season old) are snug and flattering on the leg. If you are a size 36, they should fit your foot like a glove. Jealous! At first I wasn't so sure of the ankle boot, but I have fallen in love. They are versatile and fun, plus you can pull off a fierce yet feminine look.

Happy Thanksgiving!


If I wasn't cooking I would be tempted to wear this festive Hermes blouse...

Jane Mayle Odette Coat

Gossip Girl is a total guilty pleasure, entertainment wise, but as a fashion resource, the show is a gold mine. The stylists do such a nice job dressing their characters and it's fun to be able to recognize certain pieces in their wardrobes. I watched the Thanksgiving episode the other night and was quite taken with metallic tweed coat worn by Serena. I had to track it down. The garment seemed familiar, and I realized I had admired it on the back of a customer the week before. At first I thought it had to be Chanel, but it was from Jane Mayle's Fall 2008 collection. Click to look #12 and you will know what I'm talking about, but you might also want the whole collection. Maybe someone will by one in the wrong size and then consign it at The Closet?!

Don't mean to tease...



But this vintage Chanel sold as soon as I had taken the picture. That's the beauty of consignment, you might come in one day and find nothing, but by the following week the store will look completely different. This kind of shopping is totally hit or miss. It was one lucky day for the girl that took this bag home, but the next it could be yours! I had to post this double-sided classic cause I thought it was so special. Which side do you like better?

I'm partial to the quilted myself...

Stunning Stones

This is really something...especially atop Phillip Lim's flutter sleeve dress.

Just saw a very similar gold quilted Burberry coat in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book! The Etro is also a great fall staple, pair it with a purple cashmere sweater and you are all set.

Whether you liked the election night dress or not (I did!) there is no question that Michelle Obama has style. This site does the best job of chronicling her unique choices. Love her!

A chill is in the air here in Boston, but these bags really say resort. Maybe it's time for a little vacation?!

Consignment Reminder: Holiday Outifts

Marc Jacobs

Now is the time to take a look in YOUR closet (before you get too busy with the holidays and all that buying for others) and see what doesn't belong. Here's a good rule: If you didn't wear it the past two seasons, you are probably not going to again.

With less than two months left of 2008, I also know you are not going to be wearing the same thing you did for last years festivities. Time to say goodbye and bring it to The Closet. It's much more fun to get a new outfit anyway. Give us a call at 617.536.1919 or just stop by if you have under 5 pieces. We are happy to help!

All Size 9!

Kate Moss shops consignment!

We love to see THE most stylish supermodel scouting out the secondhand shops in LA, notably Decades and DecadesTwo. Doing a little "research" for her Topshop line?

Stella's Sweater Bag


This cozy knit satchel is roomy enough to store your lunch, heels, and a few fashion magazines. It can even double as a pillow on the train!

The Eighties are back...Fanny Pack!

Louis Vuitton

Say what you will about the fanny pack, but I will always be a fan. This modern version from Louis Vuitton is especially awesome (and thankfully lacking in flashy eighties flair). We prefer to call them "waist bags."

To Boot


The Closet has so many nice boots. Yesterday we put out about 10 pairs from Tod's, Sigerson Morrison (shown above), Hogan, and Miu Miu, all in size 6. Come see!
