Paris 99 Haul – High-End Fashion Resale

I went to visit my dear friend, Yahav Ron at his Paris 99 fashion salon in Elwood last weekend. Paris 99 is a pretty cutting edge concept where Yahav’s eye for high-end fashion meets the demands of fashionista bargain-hunters, all the while creating a world for sustainable fashion and sharing the love for pre-loved pieces! Paris 99 is a giant 2 room wardobe of big-time labels like Balenciaga, Lanvin, Dries Van Noten and ALAIA, to smaller and edgier names like Ann Demeulemeester, Proenza Schouler, A.F Vandevorst and Narciso Rodriguez. Phew! Like that wasn’t a mouthful!

Anyway, Yahav is one of my old pals from high school art class, and we basically get together every now and then to play dress-ups. It’s like the best kind of dress-ups where you can buy and take things home at 80-90% off the original retail – HELLO! Have a gander at some of my finds below – Paris 99 Haul!

  1. What an incredible collection. All of the fashions are amazing. Of course I like the Florida Trench; is it Lilly Pulitzer? And the pink striped Oscar de laRenta is great. Is the digital print one piece? (My guess.) It looks like two – with a long friged top over a blue skirt… but I think that’s the whole point. To fool my eyes. Can’t wait to see it all
    at the Carlton North Fashion Show in a few days!
