I’ve unlocked the Vault..have you?

By in Shopping

Lost the love with gently worn designer clothing and accessories? Well, here is the answer!  Designer Vault is an invite only consignment store featuring high end contemporary and designer brands, with all of the merchandise being authenticated before it is posted on the site. So it works two ways, you can consign pieces that might be taking up room in your closet for a 60/40 split and once invited, you can spend your cash on some new lovelies! Fabulous!

Founder and CEO Christina Samoylov began her entrepreneurial endeavor in the first grade, selling erasers and small trinkets she brought from home. This eventually grew into an eBay store at the age of twelve and primed Christina for jobs in the customer service and retail sector. She always felt that something was missing and knew that she was meant for something more. After three years as a political science major, Christina sold everything to move to California and attend FIDM.

After working a series of retail jobs, Christina realized there was a customer that wasn’t being served. At that time the customer was herself, the girl in college or just out of college who wanted a pair of Louboutins or a classic Chanel purse but, could not afford the retail prices. With her infinity for luxury goods and being hungry for a change, Christina found her inspiration to create Designer Vault.

Here are a couple of Christina’s picks from The Designer Vault….Enjoy!

I came across this amazing artistic website that features the work of visual graphics artist Kevin Burg and photographer Jamie Beck. They have discovered a way to marry traditional photography and the use of multiple frames. The process was named Cinemagraph for its “cinematic quality while maintaining at its soul the principals of traditional photography.”

The result is hauntingly beautiful and timeless.
