Getting ready for fall
While we are still in the throes of the sweltering summer heat, budget fashionistas would be wise to start thinking about fall fashion now. Yes, this is the perfect time to hit Houston's upscale resale shops, as boutiques and local power shoppers clean out their closets and sell last season's goodies.
At B'Dazzled on West Gray, owner Debbie Damon's racks are loaded with brand-new items, tags still attached, that came directly from some of Houston's most well-known boutiques.
"Retailers are moving out the spring/summer to make room for the fall/winter; and the same holds true for resale boutiques," Damon explained.
Chocolate-hued houndstooth pants, lightweight tweed skirts and cashmere sweaters are among the low-cost shopping options at B'Dazzled. Esprit, One Girl Who, Vanessa Riley, Equestrian and Sau Paulo were just some of the labels spotted in the store. Damon said the store's spring and summer items are on sale for 30 percent off, plus an extra 20 percent discount for cash-and-carry customers.
Those of you who are regular boutique shoppers may be surprised to see where some of the clothing comes from. The stores and labels are recognizable; this adds a sweet touch to your purchase, no matter what the season.
