DecadesTwo + HauteLook Sale Event: Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada
Mark your calendars and set those alarm clocks – on Wednesday the 12th the DecadesTwo Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada Sale Event at HauteLook kicks off. What’s to expect? Unbelievable vintage pieces on sale! And the best part is you don’t have to go anywhere – no traveling to LA or New York. Just log on to hautelook.
This is one sale you don’t want to miss. The last Decades Two sale that took place on the HauteLook site was pretty amazing. I picked up the light grey Chanel Cruise Boucle Blazer, which looked so much better once I received it – totally blew me away. I’m hoping there will be more blazers this second time around, I will definitely have to snatch up at least one of those. Also last time there were no bags for sale, this time around I hope they have added them. (*crossing my fingers*)
Starts March 12th at 8:am PST / 11:am EST

In just eight years, business partners Christos Garkinos and Cameron Silver have built decadestwo into an international retail destination. Having enjoyed great critical and commercial success since the store’s inception, the owners recently doubled the boutique’s size, celebrating with a fashionably grand re-opening in July 2007. Profiled in the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, decadestwo builds on the brand of decades, the vintage couture boutique sensation created by fashion visionary Silver.While decades carries upscale vintage designs from the 1930′s to 1990′s that often appear on the red carpets of awards season, its sister store, decadestwo, carries a carefully-edited selection of contemporary clothing and accessories (mostly 1990s to present day) and caters to a clientele seeking a highly unique shopping experience.
The cornerstone to the success of decadestwo is three-fold:
A large number of the consignors are celebrities, iconic fashionistas and exuberant shoppers who are passionate about clothing.
The boutique is highly-selective, accepting only 20% of what consignors bring and offers labels such as Balenciaga, Chanel, Chloe, Marc Jacobs and emerging designers.
Everyday shoppers enjoy savings of up to 80% off of original prices.
Drawing on his 20 years of brand marketing experience in Hollywood, Garkinos initially created the concept and the provided the seed money for decadestwo in 1999. He joined the venture full time six years ago. With over 1800 consigners and a thriving clientele, Garkinos and Silver have built up a remarkable global network of consumers that, as Garkinos says, “passionately hunt, gather and recycle” clothing. The company also has strong presence on eBay as well as their own website and blog.
As Garkinos says, “We’ve become a fashion victim of our own success! We now have over 1800 consignors worldwide and are happily inundated with the fab items we receive.”
See you there
UPDATE: I just received official confirmation that this sale is only for accessories: handbags and jewelry! No clothes this time around.
