Sunday’s "It" Store: Revival Boutique

29Apr07

Ok, I’m not a gal who fawns over a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes but if you are, here’s a way to take a greener turn the next time you indulge in a little retail therapy: Revival Boutique. This charming New York atelier brims with gently worn, of-the-moment, high-end designer shoes, bags, gowns, suits and accessories. New consignment items arrive daily and Revival ships worldwide. Opting for preloved pieces not only lightens the landfill load, but saves a little “green” for you too.

Who: Revival Boutique
What: Source for of-the-moment, lightly worn designer duds
Where: 1374 Old Northern Boulevard
Old Village of Roslyn, NY
516 299 4556

Picks from the Online Catalog:

Christian Dior Halter Dress, Size 38/4, $895
Circa 2005 this sunny stunner fits right into this Spring’s “hello, Yellow” trend.

Richard Tyler Gown, $895
Classic silhouette, Grecian-inspired draping at the waist. Simply timeless.

Did You Know: Buying preloved pieces actually helps reduce energy use. Huh? It’s true. Buying new involves energy to manufacture a product (called “embodied energy”). Since a second hand piece has already been manufactured so you are actually making fashion at least 50% energy efficient by giving it second life.
