Shopping at a consignment store is a lot like finding buried treasure, though it involves far less time at sea and doesn’t require accessorizing with a parrot. Dig up fashion gold with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fashionable clothing at The Sassy Fox, a ladies’ consignment-clothing shop in St. Charles.
The constantly rotating selection of apparel at The Sassy Fox outfits women in like-new brand-name and designer duds that range from casual to formal and sizes 0-5X, and reflect current styles. Seekers of chic might snag a Dooney & Bourke, Prada, or Coach purse ($50–$150) to hold smaller, less fashionable purses, and can bedeck torsos in a selection of Chico’s jackets ($29–$39). Up the fashion ante with a formal dress ($55–$100) accessorized with funky costume jewelry ($10–$30) or flatter your figure in designer jeans by Gap, Silver, and Calvin Klein ($10–$35).
The Sassy Fox
Located in a century-old house, consignment boutique The Sassy Fox stocks an inventory of brand-name and designer women's apparel in sizes 0–5X. Offerings range from jeans and casual blouses to formal dresses, and Coach, Dooney & Bourke, and Chico's are a few of the shop's popular brands. Patrons also can procure bracelets and necklaces sourced from Big Bead Jewelry, a company that employs developmentally disabled young adults.
