We're just back from The Standard Grill, where Christos Garkinos -- co-owner of groundbreaking Los Angeles boutique DecadesTwo -- hosted a blogger breakfast to introduce a new chapter in the designer resale brand's very stylish history: public e-commerce via brand new site, Decadestwo1.com.
Before today, east coast clothes hounds were forced to plan Decades shopping ventures based on flight plans and twice-monthly HauteLook.com sales. We were happy to do it. But that was it.
"People who know us know us," said Garkinos, while clicking us through the new site. "But this is exciting because it's an online representation of what happens in the boutique everyday."
The site all of the user-friendly bells and whistles -- editorial-level photography, a no-fuss purchasing process (read: you don't bid on what you want, you just buy it), and free domestic shipping. (Ship to anywhere in the world for a $30 flat rate.)
An "Under $300" category features Louboutin mules and Giambattista Valli cocktail dresses. "Future Collectibles" include highly curated finds from sure-to-appreciate designers from Rodarte to Rochas. And video posts will highlight everything from vintage buying tips to Garkinos opening and rifling merchandise shipments live on-camera.
One final tease: Their latest Kiki de Montparnasse New York pop-up, starting tomorrow and culminating in a $150 designer shoe sale. Can't make it to the sale? Use reader discount code DEC20 for 20 percent off through October 19.
