A few weeks ago, I stopped by Eleven C Consignment shop in Park Slope. The boutique focuses on big names in great condition.
My purchase: An authentic Pucci 100% silk scarf. The a price for a 100% silk Pucci scarf in department stores/vintage store is can be from $350-$600. For those not familiar with the designer brand Pucci, it is was on the most iconic brands of the 20th century. Designer Emilio Pucci was born to one of Florence, Italy's oldest and most noble families. His designs first caught the eyes of fashion insiders during the 1940's.
I got the scarf below for $120, an yes it's authentic! A lot of people sell the knock off version on eBay, ioffer stating the scarf is authentic.I usually wear scarfs in the winter time but lately I have been trying to get out of my comfort zone and try new things in regards to my style: adding more color and purchasing more staples in my closet.
Eleven C boutique has a flagship store, located at 1st Avenue and 11th Street in Manhattan, the boutique is in its third year of buying, selling, and trading high-end apparel and accessories. Their section location in Park Slope opened a month ago.

The price points, are reasonable for the labels. Customers can expect to find jeans from J Brand to Burberry ($35-75), dresses from Diane von Fustenberg to Chanel ($250). Designer handbags depending on the brand, will run you up into the thousands typical of consignment shops.

I am excited about my purchase as a Pucci scarf is a staple to have in every closet, they are timeless! As I get older, I rather invest in timeless pieces than trendy pieces that last a season or two.
