Whether you’re East Coast sleek or West Coast chic, designer resale boutiques have something for every fashion style. Current migration trends show thousands of people leaving NYC for LA every year due to the sun and a more relaxed lifestyle, but that doesn’t mean these transplants need to give up their all-black-everything wardrobe just to fit in.
LePrix has partnerships with more than a dozen top luxury resale boutiques in and around the LA area, and if there’s one thing New Yorkers and Los Angelenos can agree on, it’s that timeless classics like a Chanel tweed jacket or the Hermes Kelly bag will always be en vogue. So, before you decide to go all boho because you can’t find the perfect LBD, be sure to scour the following boutiques…they might have just what you’re looking for!
