From Our Editors
Fashionistas, fashionmongers, and fashionable fishmongers with an eye for quality will be happy to discover a bevy of designer items among The Wardrobe Boutique?s open, airy shop space, including Coach handbags and Michael Kors coats, often for under $50?a price that would prompt ghostly scoffing from the walls of most traditional retail establishments, accompanied by a discharge of ectoplasmic mucus. The average cost of purses is $10, while dresses middle out between $15 and $20; coats average $25. The Wardrobe Boutique doesn?t accept cast-off flip-flops and threadbare bathrobes; they vet each incoming item for quality and state of repair, ensuring that whatever you do purchase will be in fine fettle. In addition to being a treasure trove of low-cost, high-end threads, 100% of the store?s proceeds benefit The Career Wardrobe, a non-profit organization that provides women in transition (moving from welfare to work) with professional clothing and appropriate interview attire to land the job they need.
