The Secret to Where We Source Our Pieces
Posted on February 24 2021
The number one question I receive: "Where do you get your stuff?"
For as long as I can remember, I have always gotten a thrill from finding an amazing deal. So much so that I started shopping, not only for myself, but for my family and friends. This inspired me to create an online fashion boutique that would make luxury shopping easy and accessible. Because my inventory is small and exclusive, you will find every piece is accurately described online, authenticity is guaranteed and items are priced fairly. But you may be left wondering, "where do you source your items?"
The Brand New
I scour high-end designer sales, small luxe boutiques and large luxury retail stores throughout the country looking for the best quality pieces at the best prices. Nothing is secured from an outlet (which often sells pieces of lower quality and inferior materials.)
I meticulously handpick preloved and vintage items from stores that specialize in luxury consignment, all of which employ in-house authenticators. While I am currently working with 2-3 trusted clients on a consignment basis, Simply Audrey is not a consignment store. Because I meticulously handpick each item, my inventory is smaller, but you can trust the quality.
Terms To Know When Shopping Our SiteNew
These pieces are brand-spanking-new, and sourced directly from the designer, or purchased from a luxury store/boutique. Absolutely nothing is acquired from an outlet store.
New with Tags
This describes preowned pieces that are in perfect condition. They have not been worn and still have the original tags attached.
Our preloved pieces come in four conditions: New with Tags (NWT), Pristine, Excellent and Very Good.
Our vintage pieces are a minimum of 20 years old, and are assigned one of our Preloved Conditions.
