DecadesTwo Goes Uptown... and Downtown

DecadesTwo, the LA-based consignment store, is rolling into New York again for their bi-annual pop-up shop. This time, however, they are splitting their personalities and sending their downtown looks to Soho house and their uptown riches to Lisa Perry's Madison Avenue boutique.

The "Uptown/Downtown" shopping event will take place from October 20 to 22. What's even better?  Madison Avenue Spy readers can get a 20% discount when shopping at either location on Friday and Saturday.

As for us? We just couldn't wait. We're glad we didn't because there are some dream items waiting to find the perfect new home. Clearly, the Uptown Decades location was curated with the neighborhood gal in mind, which means there is a lot of Chanel, Oscar, Carolina, Louboutin and Manolo. (Downtown is heavily stocked with McQueen, Philip Lim and Gucci.)



On the Chanel rack, which is quite extensive, we found a variety of light color tweed jackets, suit sets and coats. A long pearl colored trench style is $2900 and a limited edition nautical themed jacket worn in a Miley Cyrus video is $2,100. There are even options for Chanel shoppers who want to spend less than a grand. A soft blue linen dress with double-C buttons is $500 and a short red jacket is $895.

Among other designers, we found a long Bottaga dress for $1,200, an iconic YSL cocktail dress for $600, a Bill Blass sequin dress for $660 and an adorable Balenciaga skirt with original tags showing a $1900 retail price for $340. A dress by London-based designer Maria Grachvogel was crying to be taken home and was priced at just $350.

Shoppers keen on shoes, bags and accessories will not be discappointed either. We found Louboutin spikey high boots for about $1000, Alaia black and white pony hair pumps for $400, never worn Chanel ballet flats for $330, a white multi-color Vuitton note book for $220, black croc Manolo pumps for $350 and Kirckwood lizard pumps for $220.

For us, the best part of the sale is that there are a variety of interesting items that can fill the needs of someone with Fifth Avenue extravagance or First Avenue sensibility. You can click here to see a full photostream of the items mentioned above.

i was at the decades two pop up on madison this afternoon, and i thought it was underwhelming. the best clothes were a few skirt suits i saw by alaia and i forget. shoe selection was small and sizes were either small or huge. those chanel flats r like a size 35.5!
