See these Alaia ankle boots? Behold the sculpturally stunning cut out, the lace-up detail and the curved metallic wedge. They’re a Godsend for anyone who wears a size 37. They originally retailed for $1,590. On a normal day, designer consignment boutique Luxury Garage Sale (1658 N. Wells St., 312-291-9126) would price them at $575; but during the blowout sale this week, they’re yours for $375.
The Old Town shop rarely reduces its already-reduced prices, and they’re not holding back for the first-ever warehouse sale—designer labels such as Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Jimmy Choo are all included. Hundreds of pieces of clothing, shoes, accessories, and costume jewelry are reduced by up to 65 percent. Along with those Alaia beauties, here are a few other items up for grabs: a Proenza Schouler blue tweed coat (previously $475; now $350), a Matthew Williamson feathered skirt (previously $795; now $495), and a Chanel silver tote bag (previously $1,595, now $1,295).
The in-store sale runs Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 12 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
