Without clothes, there would be no laundromats, and without laundromats, most of us would never get to see strangers' underwear. Enjoy clothes ownership's ancillary benefits with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of designer consignment apparel and accessories at Chic Envy Consignment in Fairfax.
Staff members at Chic Envy Consignment, voted 2011 Best Women's Consignment Shop by Northern Virginia Magazine, carefully select fashion pieces for consignment such as items by high-end designers Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Tory Burch, and True Religion. Customers can slip on a gently used pair of True Religion or Hudson brand jeans ($40–$50) to shower legs with attention for something other than their sporadic bouts of silly-walking. A Susan Farber purse ($42) shines up monochromatic ensembles with its metallic fabric hue and whimsical oversized bow detail.
Adorn wrists with accessories such as a Tory Burch bangle bracelet ($75) or a vintage Chanel handbag ($750) for a look as timeless as a gold-plated little black dress. Store items are subject to change frequently, and the store lists some of its newer items online.
