During the Stone Age, dressing for distress was all the rage, since cave persons knew their tattered threads would make them less likely to be courted by a handsome triceratops. Dress for success with today's deal: for $15, you get $35 worth of pre-owned, designer-name teen clothes from Clique, one mile east of Highway 270 on Gravois Road in St. Louis.
Clique offers sartorially savvy teens and newly minted 20-somethings an ever-expanding array of new and used top-designer and brand-name clothes for both guys and girls. Clique’s inventory grows daily, thanks to both loyal customers selling back their like-new clothes and the unpatented polyester fertilizer that causes outfits to sprout and flourish on the emporium's fertile clothes racks. Brands such as Coach, True Religion, Abercrombie, and Hollister form part of the much- sought-after apparel roster. With 500 to 600 new inventory items per day, trend-starved shoppers are guaranteed endless wearable fixes, and items such as True Religion jeans ($49), a Hollister tee ($6), or a North Face jacket ($32) invigorate intelligent wardrobes in need of new material to stimulate their growing minds. Clique also offers free private after-hours shopping parties for teens, with food and drink provided.
Unlike wedding dinners and pre-teen sports teams, Clique’s gigantic inventory doesn’t sacrifice quality for quantity. All of the clotherie's fashionable wares are in excellent condition and are either new or like new. Great for smartly frugal teens with a spear-sharp fashion sense, Clique offers back-to-school apparel bliss or winter-break sweater madness for discerning, strut-worthy teens.
