We’re extremely guilty of sticking to the west end for most things, but one place that keeps bringing us uptown is LAB Consignment. Owner Lauren Baker initially had a store in the back of Silver Falls Vintage on Ossington, but in 2012 moved uptown to Avenue Road to have a space of her own. If you don’t know anything about LAB, it’s time to get in the know! Baker carefully selects designer brands (and we’re talking high-end designer brands) like Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Elizabeth & James, and many, many, more—she has the pieces you want to add to your wardrobe (but normally can’t afford) at lower pricepoints. As of fall 2013, LAB will be moving completely online with a brand new website (it’s the way of the future, you guys!) and will offer shopping by appointment, special-invite showroom sales, and mail-in consignment. We aren’t lying when we say we’re pretty excited about LAB’s progress.
For this week’s Styled by Local, Baker dressed her store manager, Meredith (sweet name!), in a look she titled Garden Party Cool. The look definitely has a total cool girl vibe and we’re pretty in love with the Louis Vuitton backpack. Visit LAB before it’s too late!
