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 $40, you get $80 worth of upscale second-hand boutique apparel from Second Chances Consignment Boutique in White House.
An array of gently used apparel and accessories eagerly await loving wardrobe homes through Second Chances' consignment program. Though inventory changes frequently, recent items have included Dooney & Bourke wallets ($20) and a like-new Coach bag ($75), which team up with skirts from Banana Republic ($14.99) or a flattering pair of Seven Jeans (all jeans less than $30). Among the fabric-filled racks, a selection of gowns ($100 and less) begs to be included in momentous wedding celebrations and trips before obedience-school deans. A dedicated formal room, replete with a multitasking style consultant, personal shopper, and seamstress, helps fashionistas make elegant selections like Judi Dench picking a kickball team.
