Style Dtour in Denver

Another type of detour =)
Colorado Consignment
This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Denver - it was my first time there, as well as my first time in Colorado! I had a great time, and, because there was some time for shopping, I wanted to do a review of three consignment stores I visited with my friend Ang. We had a great time exploring the second-hand scene in Denver, and finding pieces for each other and, of course, ourselves.

Mercer Place
First up, the delightful Mercer Place
When we pulled up, there was a sign saying that a summer clearance sale was happening, which is always a great thing to be greeted with. The store had a lot of clothes and jewelry, as well as really cute home furnishings. We also got to meet the lovely owner, and chatted about everything from her store to fast fashion.
Leifsdottir High Tea Dress

The color of this dress caught my attention on the rack and once I zipped it up, there was little doubt I would leave with it. Also, it has pockets!
Giving a twirl, for good measure. 


My Best Friend's Closet
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of My Best Friend's Closet. This store had a tightly curated selection and was easy to peruse. It also had a bathroom and drinking fountain, which I only mention because I feel like thrift/secondhand stores never have these things!
Theory blazer
Ang scored this amazing red blazer (which I picked out), and which fit her perfectly.
She also found this amazing silk Lilly Pulitzer dress with embellishment along the neckline. The cashier at the store was getting ready to photograph this dress for the store's Instagram account, and we interrupted her so Ang could try this on, and then it left with us.  

Close up of the embellishment - the beading was still in perfect condition.
Franco Sarto Flats 
Deja Blue
Look at that adorable door!
The last stop on our journey was recommended to us by a lady at My Best Friend's Closet, and is across the street. It is Deja Blue, which is a Goodwill boutique. As the woman working there explained, this Goodwill store filters through donations made to local Goodwill's and picks out the brand-name items, to keep at this one store. I had never seen one of these before, but it was awesome! It was probably the cheapest of the three, and had an impressive selection.

Ang had the best find of our shopping excursion here: she found a pair of what looked like brand-new, never been used Ferragamo flats for $40! They are black suede, and were such a great find!

Ciao bella.
Smartwool Sweater
I found a very warm Smartwool sweater (I love their socks), and this fun Tory Burch top that will be great for work.
Last but not least, and even though I had to stuff it into my tiny carry-on suitcase, I couldn't help walking out with this pillow - it was so cute!
 Ultimately, we were both very pleased with the Denver consignment scene, and, until I get a chance to go back, I hope Goodwill opens a boutique store in my area!
Tah-tah for now.
