If you’re a Gucci fan like us then you may be asking yourself “Is that a current collection piece in their window”? The answer is yes, the Flora Snake print silk dress in the middle is brand new and yes, we have the best consignors! You should come by to see what else was dropped off recently. There really isn’t any need for you to shop regular retail ever again. And your wallet may just sprout arms to hug you with and a mouth that says “thank-you”.

For a night out in white might I suggest one of these 3 beauts? Now let’s just cut to the chase and gaze at that AMAZING cubic zirconia belt! I don’t know much about it other than it came out of an estate in Montreal. Perhaps Persian? Being cubic zirconias, that would date it to post 1960’s. She may just need to sprout some lips in order to tell us the rest of her story.
