CHIC IN CHANEL!
Classic Collections is chock full of Chanel jackets, suits, dresses, purses and shoes right now! We are so delighted to see this quantity and quality of chic Chanel merchandise that represents the greatest hits of this epic designer fashion icon!
With the changing trends of fashion swirling around us, one steadfast rule is that a piece of Chanel will always make an outfit quintessentially chic!
Gone are the days when Chanel suits were only worn to "ladies luncheons". Now, those suit jackets pair beautifully with jeans, leggings, and short, trendy dresses. Chanel skirts are worn with leather and jeans jackets, pashmina shawls and sexy tops.
Craving Classic Chanel??
Classic Chanel purses and shoes are worn by every age with everything from teen clothing to classic casual to vintage inspired outfits. They are the gold standard of a polished fashsionista that can immediately designate any wearer as "with it"....no matter the occasion.
Treat yourself to a little Chanel indulgence! Right now, some of our Chanel merchandise is 25% off and, believe us, these items will not last!
An extremely anticipated event is Classic Collection's annual "Louis Vuitton-a-Thon" which is held each spring! We are currently accepting consignments for authentic, genuine current and antique pieces of Louis Vuitton trunks, luggage, handbags, briefcases, accessories, clothing, scarves, jewelry and books.
We plan to begin our event this year on April 1
(no fooling!) and, if prior years are any measure, we will
LV Lumineuse PM
have Louis Vuitton treasures piled up in our front showroom to the chandeliers!
So, please go through your closets, garages and storage spaces and consider bringing us your unused, yet still coveted Louis Vuitton pieces. It's a good idea to call before coming in, especially if you have several large items that we may have to store before the event
|DRESSES FOR DAMES!|
Have you been reading the fashion press
lately? Almost every page is brimming with the most wonderful variety of trending spring dresses. Of course, half of the trends come from different eras, so while the styles look vaguely familiar, in an "everything old is new again" mode, you will see rich patterns, polka dots, tailored shirt-dresses and lavishly draped silks and jerseys.
Lisa Perry Colorblock
Channeling your inner Mad Men Mode, you can renew your look with a color-blocked Lisa Perry spring frock, and dress it up with a bright, colorful handbag and shoe ensemble. Why not put on those big, round sunglasses and tie an Hermes scarf around your head a la Grace Kelly?
Looking for something comfortable
yet sexy and pack-able? We have an assortment of dresses from the collections of Alberto Ferretti, Roberto Cavalli, Pucci and others. Known for their fine fabrics, interesting, form fitting styles and whimsical and jaunty prints, these designers have cornered the market for fashions that can be dressed up, travel well (think in a tiny, little carry-on) and are flattering to almost all figures!
Always glamorous, we can't forget the delightful and timeless styles of Pierre Balmain, Galanos, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Marchesa and others.
While perhaps out of bounds budget-wise if purchased new, these traditional and classic dresses are affordable and a treasure to find at consignment boutiques.
Right now, Classic Collections has a selection of these designers for your shopping pleasure...but hurry in...they go fast!
HANDSOME SPRING HANDBAGS
Handbags-are they a fashion accessory or a necessary part of a woman's lifestyle? Theoretically a handbag can be both-depending on size, style and color. For instance, in our culture, a "handbag" is a handled medium-to-large bag that is generally used to carry personal items such as a wallet, cosmetics, mobile phone, keys, hairbrush, etc.
Lana Marks Croc
Many handbag styles offer the same general shape, but come with a shoulder strap, thus freeing the hands to brush said hair, talk on said cell phone and still eat at the same time.
A larger handbag, often with two long handles, is called a tote and typically one can fit almost all of life's necessities in these roomy, bottomless creations.
Pop Up Tote
Often made with interior pockets and zippered compartments, these babies are indispensable to the modern working woman-they hold iPods, iPads, flat extra shoes, bottled water, multiple pairs of eye and sun glasses, emergency nail repair kits, totally complete makeup and dental supplies, and occasionally, the "maybe I'll be gone overnight" change of clothes. It is definitely deemed dangerous for anyone other than the owner to delve into a tote-you never know the things one might find!
Of course, there are the beautiful and minimal clutches. Much smaller than regular purses, and usually
rectangular (although we have seen some terrific square and oval shapes), they are often used for dressy evenings and can be made of silk, velvet, crystals, exotic skins and semi-precious gems.
"Ladies Who Lunch" often carry the exotic skin clutches in a wonderful variety of colors and shapes which, naturally, are then casually laid down on the luncheon table to be admired!

1920's Art Deco
collectible baubles, bangles and beads, that there is something for everyone.

Carved coral and bone necklace
Consider the vintage paper mache and deco beads on silk from the 1920's, or the Czech jet glass choker from the 1930's.The old white jade pendant with a large amethyst on purple silk cording is very different, as is the Chinese carved bone and coral necklace.
Looking for unusual earrings?
We've got everything from art deco to vintage to semi-precious stones and wood.
If bracelets are your favorite, we have wide bangles in gold tones with set stones, sterling silver, turquoise, bone, rhinestones, enamel and stones, as well as slender bangles in various finishes.
|David Yurman "Cable Classics"|
David Yurman launched his iconic brand in 1980, and with the debut in 1983 of his cable bracelet, the signature "Cable Classics Collection" was born.
The twisted helix of Sterling and 14k Gold, with gemstone adornments has since become a welcome addition to many jewelry collections.
We recently received an assortment of these wonderful pieces that are now available for purchased as sets or separately. Stop in soon before they're gone!
