Once you and your girlfriends have exhausted each other’s closets, it’s time to visit Miami’s best vintage stores. This town has stunning consignment shops that collect pieces from the most exquisite wardrobes in South Florida. You and your crew are guaranteed to find dozens of squeal-worthy items to amplify your style.
Here are three of our favorite vintage stores around the city:
Second Time Around
You may be surprised to discover that Second Time Around is even a consignment shop: The Sunset Drive store’s racks are carefully curated with lightly used designer clothes, most with the tags still on. This is the place to find spotless Louis Vuitton luggage and Tory Burch patent flats – all for a fraction of what you’d pay for them at Saks. You’ll be shooting your girlfriend a thumbs up as she spins around in a cropped, hot pink Rebecca Minkoff motorcycle jacket. Hopefully you’ve all been practicing your Pilates, because when you leave Second Time Around, your bags are going to be heavy.
At Las Tias, you can perk up your closet and your entire bedroom. To get to the racks of timeless clothing items at the back – think Alexander Wang wrap skirts, Roberto Cavali blazers, and Diane Von Furstenberg tanks – you first have to walk through Las Tias’ showroom of antique armoires, dressers, and chandeliers. Sit on the chaises lounges with your girls, take a look around at the art deco paintings and kooky lamps, and daydream… These are the kind of classic pieces that your future style-savvy grandchildren will be begging you for. Once you get a few choice clothing items to take home, you can maybe find a great furniture piece to go with it.
Consign of the Times
If it’s luxury handbags, shoes, and accessories that you’re hunting, you have got to hit Consign of the Times. There are two of these airy boutiques, in Miami Beach and South Miami, and both are frequented by fashionistas browsing hundreds of today’s drool-worthy faves like black-suede Céline bags, knee-high Manolo Blahniks, and enamel Hermes bangles. Visit Consign of the Times’ blog to see what’s new to the store this week – and which available items have been recently spotted on celebs. Once you’ve found your scene-stealing essentials, step out in your new gear in Miami’s happening arts district. You and your friends might end up on a few fashion blogs yourselves.
