If you’ve ever been invited to an event where you need to dress to impress and your luxurious tastes don’t quite match your beer budget, you might want to consider adding “competitive consignment shopper” to your list of great attributes. Dallas, Texas has a passion for the art that is shopping. They have high-end boutiques, large conglomerate-owned shopping centers, and tiny, hole-in-the-wall shops where nobody wants to tell you they found a Michael Kors bag for less than your monthly rent. But another type of store they also have in spades are fantastic thrift and consignment shops!
Consignment is the New Thrift: Fantastic Dallas Finds Letting You Dress to Impress

A fine first choice is Vintage Martini. Offering high-end clothes, footwear, and accessories, they have lots of designer labels such as Prada, Escada, and Mywallethasnada (just kidding on that last one…). The price points in this store are phenomenal, so when you dress to impress Mindy at your high school reunion, you’ll know you’re wearing “reasonable” Chanel and she’ll think you’re in “I’m rolling in it” Chanel!

Another great option is Buffalo Exchange. This Arizona-based chain has ample trendy and vintage clothing and accessories for men and women. Following what’s hot for the season, you’ll find plenty of great outfits and ensembles to carry you through whatever your schedule throws at you in style.
And a third spot to check out (although these aren’t in any particular order), is Clotheshorse Anonymous. They have a gigantic inventory of designer clothing and accessories from casual, to office, to evening wear, right down to the sunglasses, necklaces, and designer clutches you may or may not need to wow a certain someone or win a promotion! And you’ll get it for a third of the price you would have paid had it been brand new.
