Finally! Real Designer Consignment in Austin!

For years and years I’ve been wishing and hoping that Austin would grow up enough to bloom a designer consignment store. Not just one that has questionably real Chanel and Vuitton bags and things found in your mother’s closet that cost her a pretty penny back then, but quality designer clothes that are still relevant today! Well I guess Austin finally did grow up or we just have some pretty smart cookies running the boutiques. Enter Moss and Gallery D.

Moss is owned by the gals that brought you Feathers. For most of us, Feathers might be a little too hipster or “out there”, but Moss brings it home to relateable clothes you can wear and wear again. Remember that Dries Van Noten line that featured the marble pattern you missed out on a few years ago? Well, they have it sans the original retail price point. And they have the classics too – Hermes, Prada, Louboutin – and some newer lines that are on the more affordable end of your budget (Frye boots anyone?). What I love is that, like Feathers, they update their blog with their recent acquisitions so you don’t have to be stalking their storefront on South Lamar.

Gallery D is in the newish 2nd street district and offers cute party dresses, jeans and tops for the girl about town. What a perfect addition the consignment section is! Cynthia Vincent, Marc Jacobs and Diane Von Furstenburg from recent seasons past rotate through the store frequently, so check in often! And… you might even find something that has previously been seen on yours truly! (I hear there’s an amazing gray velvet Chaiken cape and silver and gold Fiona Paxton necklace that might catch your eye.)

Since it is consignment, both stores do split any sales with their previous owners. Policies are listed online and the shopkeepers can answer any questions about what they may be looking for now. So, out with the old and in with the new (to you)!
