In a city as cookie-cutter as Washington, D.C. it’s difficult to find unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. Fashion buyers here focus on the Ann Taylor Loft and J. Crew set, which means the style is kind of basic, and the locals are afraid to stand-out from the crowd or outshine their peers. This fashion mentality makes shopping a bit challenging for those who like a little flair. Luckily, there’s CityCenterDC—which is like our own little Rodeo Drive—but what happens if your bank account won’t allow a new handbag from Gucci or that Burberry trench? Head to a luxury resale shop!
LePrix’s got you covered. We have exclusive partnerships with over 600 designer consignment stores around the world—and we even have a few in the DMV area too! So, you don’t have to worry about breaking the piggy bank just to prance around in a pair of Louboutin stilettos…and you definitely don’t have to look like everyone else on K Street.
From Georgetown to Gaithersburg, MD, we’ve rounded up some of the best luxury consignment shops around.
