35 Reasons to Get to Century 21 Now

It's been ages since we've headed to the Century 21 flagship and figured it would be interesting to see what's changed since the store was remodeled. We began our shopping trip with low expectations but were shocked to see that discount store was fully stocked with the most premier legendary designer treasures. We're talking about the names you hardly ever find outside of boutiques any more.


When was the last time you saw Prada and Hermes in a discount store? Exactly. On the Prada rack we found classic puffer jackets with fur collars for $980 from $1890, gingham long wool coats are $1749 from $3860 and leather moto jackets for $1649 from $3885. Take note, signs above the Prada merchandise states: C21 Guaranteed Authentic. Not Affiliated or Authorized Retailer of PRADA. (Pics in the jump.)

The Lanvin section wasn't any less spectacular. A ruffled top dress is $1759 from $5000 and a classic LBD is $979 from $2975. Other great finds include a long Gucci shearling coat for $3059 from $15,770, a classic Pucci coat with a fur collar that comes in assorted solid colors is $1059 from $4000, a classic Missoni sweater coat is $429 from $2575 and a Celine leather top is $670 from $2275.

The Hermes silk blouse was not the best piece of fashion we found at C12 but it was the biggest shocker. The blouse is priced at $1499 from $2705 and a Hermes tee is $399 from $640. Both not worth the money but nonetheless surprising. The store is also well stocked with Oscar de la Renta stunners and great Proenza prints. You can check out pictures of all the aforementioned items along with a lot more with a clickty click.

Upstairs on the 6th floor, the children's department is also stocked with great fashion finds. There are ADD jackets for everyone from infants to the 14-16 set. A girls Missoni coat is $300 from $660, a Dolce & Gabbana dress is $119 from $324 and dressy Oscar de la Renta girl's dresses are $101 from $235.

Frankly, we haven't been this excited by a discount shopping trip in a very long time. We suggest that all you Uptown girls head downtown before the tourists walk away with all of our home town goodies.
