Spend enough time working in the fashion industry, and you'll wind up with a closet full of ridiculously gorgeous clothing that you never wear. Some publicists and buyers spend their whole lives quietly suffering from this affliction, but the sister-in-laws behind The Fashionaires have turned it into a career opportunity. Their online consignment boutique sells everything from Stella McCartney to Dolce & Gabbana, and this weekend they're bringing some of their best inventory to the Plaza Hotel for a one-day sale.
The event is open to the public (no RSVP necessary) and runs from 10am to 6pm in the 4th floor Xavier/Pulitzer suite. Merchandise includes RTW, bags, accessories, and shoes, and if none of it is exactly budget-friendly, it is all in mint condition. Check out the slideshow above for a look at some of the highlights.
