Major Evening Glamour


Every once in a while a piece comes through Consignment that seems just right. And this evening bag from Rodo is just that - perfect. It's the right size, the right color, the right fabric (satin) and can we talk about the handle?! Diamante deco-style leaves?! Amazing! Major! We're in love! (SOLD)

A little birdy just told us...

...that our parent store Eva Gentry has gone to 70%-off their Spring/Summer merchandise. Rick, Ann, Martin, Helmut at 70%-off? Why are you still sitting in front of the computer?

Sharp Shoulders/Soft Leather

One of our favorite things about Rick Owens' work is the tactile dichotomies that are present in each of his pieces; as he molds his clothing to twist and bend the human form into exagarated proportions he uses the most supple leather, the most swaddle worthy cashmere, and the softest cotton thus creating something both extreme AND comfortable. The two jackets that we just got in are perfect examples of this yin-yang.
From his Drkshdw collection we have a cotton jean jacket with leather sleeves and extreme piped shoulders - goth Balmain, but so much more mysterious!
From his mainline collection this purply-grey hook closure leather jacket with knit insert sleeves.

**These pieces have been co-opted by our parent store Eva Gentry. Please contact them for information on either of them!**

Balenciaga 4 Life!


Yes, you've seen them before. And yes, you know someone that has one. And yes, you still want one too! There's a reason these babies are classics and a reason that as soon as we get them in they fly out the door! We've got three Balenciaga bags right now for each part of your life: the larger black Afternoon for work-a-day chic; the Day in gris clair for toting around on your off-hours and weekends; and the Clutch in cream for evening. In fact, one person could get all three and be set, Balenciaga-wise that is!
Update: both the Afternoon and the Day are SOLD.

Charity

At Eva Gentry, we feel it is important to give back to our community and help those less fortunate. It is our hope that those suffering from abuse, disease and poverty are awarded the opportunity to improve their circumstances.

CAMBA is a non-profit organization that has worked to improve the quality of life for thousands of New Yorkers since 1977. From CAMBA.org:

Specifically, we help people of low-income; those moving from welfare to work; people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness or transitioning out of homelessness; individuals living with or at risk of HIV/AIDS; immigrants and refugees; children and young adults; entrepreneurs and other groups working to become self sufficient.

We are pleased to announce that we will be donating unsold Eva Gentry Consignment merchandise to CAMBA’s women’s rehabilitation and homeless shelters located in Brooklyn and to their program for victims of domestic violence. Items will be given to women for job interviews as well as those who have vacated their homes for emergency reasons and are left with little or no clothing. We encourage you to drop off any unwanted clothing items at one of our stores, even if we are unable to sell them on consignment, and we will deliver them to one of CAMBA’s shelters.

Visit www.camba.org for more information and other ways to help New Yorkers in need.

*Please note that if you are interested in selling items on consignment, we require an appointment. Drop-offs are for donations only.

Guidi Madness!


Stop the clock! We have the most insane pair of heeled Guidi boots. We like to consider these a unisex piece at their voluptuous size of 42. Anyone should be happy to own these, so act quick because they won't be hanging around here for long.


Have you ever wondered what your boots would look like if they were slashed open but never wanted to investigate? Well wonder no longer because Guidi has already done it for you. These "red" leather boots are available in size 38 and 39.

SUMMER HOURS


All this heat has got us tired and we need some extra rest. So for the rest of the summer (that means 'til Labor Day) our hours will be:

Monday - Saturday: Noon -7pm
Sunday: Noon - 6pm

We hope this won't inconvenience anyone, but it will definitely allow for some additional summer evening caterwauling!
