SHOP LOCAL: WHERE TO SHOP YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNERS

Standard

GUIDE_TO_LOCAL_SHOPPING.jpg

Spoiler alert: Saks isn’t the only store on the block with Proenza on the shelves.

You can also snag all of your favorite designers at local boutiques in your own neighborhood.

We all know the feeling of spending hours browsing a department store’s online inventory, finally deciding to add the new ‘It’ pair of shoes to our shopping bag, walking over to our wallet to fetch our credit card, and coming back to find that our bag is now empty. The shoes sold out.

That’s where your local boutiques come in. Sure they might have a more limited collection of your favorite brands, but they also have a more curated selection, chosen with a careful, discerning eye.

And they’re less likely to sell out within seconds. More goods for you.

Proenza Schouler

We all know the PS1 bag, with it’s classic front buckle and ability to look so easy, yet so fashion forward at the same time. Proenza Schouler started as a womenswear brand in 2002, eventually launching their first handbag collection in 2008 and becoming a staple in every bloggers’ wardrobe since.
