FASHION EXCHANGE: High End Consignment and Vintage Paradise

All the old-timer's, newly relocated locals, and visitor's of Las Vegas will tell you that Las Vegas has something for everyone. This statement holds true in the shopping arena, as well. In the Lakes community, roughly 8 miles from the strip, on West Sahara Ave., is an awesome consignment store called Fashion Exchange. This boutique is comparable to the vintage stores in Manhattan. They have on the racks, at any given time, the likes of St. John, Roberto Cavalli, Fendi, Chloe, Max Azria, Dolce & Gabbana and Yves St. Laurent.

Impeccable Vintage Gems from floor to ceiling are calling to you as you are parking your car in front of the store. When you walk in, on your immediate left is a showcase filled with evening clutches. Such lovelies covered in colorful gems and they shimmer in the sunlight in such a way you want them all! Lining the walls are purses of every shade and size. And if you are like me, you immediately squeal with delight because you see Chloe, D & B, Louis Vuitton, and Balenciaga. Grab the one you love as soon as you see it. It will be gone if you take even a moment to leave to run to the ATM. Have them hold it for you while you leave. Beneath the purse lined walls are dresses galore on your left and business suits on your right. I found a gorgeous dress by Nanette Lepore on my last visit. The center of the store are the circle racks with dreams, dreams, dreams.

This beautiful, quaint store is such a fun place to shop. And the ladies who work here are the kindest women you will ever meet.

I said that this store is comparable to those in Manhattan. True statement. But the Style? Totally Las Vegas. Take some of these beautiful pieces home with you and all your friends will be envious.
