I can’t remember ever paying full price for designer duds. My stints in New York and Los Angeles made me acutely aware of sample sales. So once I went 75% off, there was no going back to full retail. It’s understandable that Byrd Designer Consignment is my go-to for Alexander Wang, Gucci, Isabel Marant (and the list goes on).
Owner Emily Elbert is highly discerning about every piece she puts in her St. Louis boutique. And more than that, she will give you her honest and impeccable opinion in the dressing room. If it’s not working, she doesn’t want you to go home with it.
I have a special place in my closet for all my Byrd finds — Prada brown suede over-the-knee boots, Yigal Azrouël knit top, rag & bone boyfriend jeans, Helmut Lang blazer. And with all that savings, I can go back to Byrd tomorrow.
