This week may bring Michael Kors and Bebe, and next week could feature Ann Taylor and Seven, but no matter when someone stops in Eye of the Beholder Consignments, items from high-profile brands can be found on the shelves. Handbags may carry names such as Prada, Coach, and Juicy Couture, and clothing may hail from Talbots, Chico's, and Coldwater Creek. The shop also stocks shoes, business suits, and maternity wear for expectant mothers and dudes who just want to get closer to their children by dressing as a nanny. A portion of proceeds goes to charities such as the Baltimore Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.
In contrast to the limited inventories at conventional boutiques, Curve Appeal offers consignment options for full-figured women, who can choose from high-end, comfortable clothing from renowned labels. Items from Lane Bryant, Worthington, and Avenue are available in a range of sizes and styles and are suitable for any formal or informal occasion. Brand-new lingerie and dresses adorn racks and shelves next to consignment tops, blouses, shirts, and jewelry, making for eye-catching new ensembles that fit and flatter.
