Oh, I love that… and that… and that! It’s nearly impossible to go into Secondi and not see something you could picture in your closet, with its selection of designer suits, handbags, evening wear, and separates.
The store specializes in like-new high-end merchandise from labels like Chanel, Kate Spade, Helmut Lang, and newer retailers—Banana Republic, White House/Black Market, and J. Crew. Secondi generally lives up to its aim, though like any consignment shop, it has a generous amount of duds and lifeless attire that seem destined for Goodwill.
Prices are high, but for vintage evening wear, classic dresses, and well-cared-for designer shoes and bags, they may be worth the money.
