Fall in Love with our Newest Designer Arrivals at Le Thrift

Fall is here and crisp air sends us running to our closets to rev up our cold weather wardrobe. We all want to wear pieces that transition to fall so our staff paired up colorful cold weather pieces to our summer items carry us through those chilly fall nights.

Le Thrift Consignment Boutique spent the day with model Alicja Burek, photographer Dean Paul and stylist Thomas Vaughan in beautiful Lincoln Park pulling some looks to inspire your for your fall wardrobe. All of the clothing and accessories are for sale at Le Thrift Consignment Boutique in Wicker Park Chicago.

Color is a big trend this fall and the pieces we have at the store are colorful and truly unique. Pair a vintage Bill Blass jacket with a knitted print dress by Alexander McQueen. Keep your feet warm with these playful BCBG boots with zippers. Complete this outfit with a local, Chicago designer - Eartha Henley necklace and a luxurious Gucci hobo that any fashionista would envy. 

  Next our staff photographed by Caldwell pond in Lincoln Park on such gorgeous sunny day and put together this outfit with a color palette inspired by the unraveling fall color. Model Alijca is wearing a top by Cynthia Rowley, silk pants by Theysken's Theory, yellow suede pumps by Marc Jacobs , emerald green leather handbag by Marc jacobs and a vintage navy jacket.

Reviving vintage is what Le Thrift loves to do and this next look has us updating an 80's tartan plaid wool skirt with a more current trench coat and an early 90's silk Esprit hot pink top. We could not forget adding a mint condition Tory Burch handbag to complete the outfit.

All of these items are for sale at Le Thrift consignment boutique. Stop by and check out our newest arrivals designer, name brand and vintage clothing. And if you are discovering that you are in desperate need of a closet clean out contact us to have a consultant pick up your items and cash in on your gently loved designer clothing. To set up an appointment email Christine at

Also we would like to thank Time Out Chicago for nominating us for Best Consignment Shopping 2012. It was a great honor considering we are the "new kid on the block" in the realm of consignment boutiques.

That's it for now.
