Yesterday, my husband and I were walking home from our friends’ new apartment – from the West side to the East side…we came across a very cute consignment shop called Fisch for the Hip. Thankfully, my husband is as curious as I am when we see some vintage Louis Vuitton suitcases in the window…so we went in to see what we could find.
Fisch for the Hip is a fabulous Chelsea consignment shop with a meticulously edited selection of everything from Chloe, Missoni, Marni, Vera Wang RTW, Stella McCartney, Gucci, Balenciaga, Lanvin, Dolce, Alaia, Hermes bags, men’s designer suits and all sorts of other things that you will not find anywhere else in NYC. The owner and staff of Fisch for the Hip choose their consignment items with care to create the ultimate shopping experience for you – although I’ve read some bad reviews from people trying to sell their items in the store… The selection is large enough to dress even the most selective of shoppers, but at the same time, you aren’t searching through tons of things that no one would want…every piece seems to have a purpose.
We didn’t buy anything…but I definitely saw lots of things that I loved – the kinds of pieces that are like gems in a wardrobe to keep yours from ever looking like someone else’s. The prices were better than buying new, but the $10,000 Hermes Birkin bag was still hard to swallow… ♥
