couture blowout

My friend Will introduced me to a great vintage store in Houston, so I asked him to introduce the store, since he is much better acquainted with it.

Lace Chanel Set


my friend Will in his Alexander McQueen suede bomber (only $359... kind of crazy)

beautiful vintage 1970's sweater set (I didn't get photos of the matching pieces - a full length seashell pink lace skirt and cream shell top SO DREAMY)

Couture Blowout has to be my favourite place to go for great designer and beautiful vintage clothing. Owner Fatou Fall has the best selection Houston has to offer for big label resale. I'll have to give it to Fatou; she has the best taste in clothing I've ever seen. I can't tell you how many times I've been to a designer consignment shop and wanted to pound my head in. She doesn't just buy them for the label, but for their relevance to fashion. Each item I touch something I have to take a deep breath and collect myself, because it's like being in your own VIP dressing room. There's an array of shoes, pants, jackets, dresses, skirts, blouses, jewelry, and accessories. Conscience of the economy, she makes her inventory accessible to the public by pricing things affordably. Now to disappoint the guys, Fatou only carries women's clothes, I just happened to be lucky that someone was trying to sell the McQueen jacket as unisex (for $359 I might add). If you're interested in taking your things in, she'll price the item for you and split it 50-50, and I encourage the guys to bring in their designer things also. We could get a spot of our own.

    yessss i love couture blowout! they always have such well curated items, they really know their stuff. last time i was in there i was almost weeping over a pair of chanel heels that were a STEAL but still a bit out of my price range.

    wow that place looks like a boutique...very unlike the overstuffed clothing racks crowded into a much-too-small space that i'm used to seeing!
