^you're right it is very pretty.... I went a few times right after it opened. I like the Anthropologie on Westheimer & The Woodlands Mall much better though I made quit a haul at Buffalo Exchange this week. I'm going again today with friends who've never been

a couple of jackets, a dress, belt, two black tops (dressy) and I think that's it. Yesterday I didn't find anything (because I already got the clothes I liked in my size).. my friend bought one thing. I sold them some stuff and got store credit. We went across the street to Wish, Fashion Recycle, Leopard Lounge, etc... and my friend found like one or two things... the Leopard Lounge smells really bad

i think i've only purchased shoes at buffalo...i haven't been in quite some time. it really irked me when they took over the art store's space because that was such a fun place to look around (i'd never buy though [i'm hardly an artist], so maybe that's why they closed...).

Does anyone know of any upcoming sample sales in Houston? Especially in August?

I am moving in August for school....How is the shopping in general? Is it madness, in terms of limited supply and high demand?

Are there many consignment or second hand stores?

Sorry for all the questions!!! Thank you to anyone who takes the time to answer any of these, I appreciate it.

I hope the shopping is good!!! because I looove to shop.

I also have the opportunity to shop in Tokyo and Osaka over the summer holiday....so should I spend most of my money there, or hold out for Houston? I have found that Japanese clothing is often ill fitting or doesn`t hold my attention for very long.

major stores- saks, neimans, barneys co-op, ysl, chanel, jimmy choo, dior, tiffany, cartier, gucci, dior, nordstrom, anne fontaine, kate spade, wolford, ch carolina herrera.

boutiques (my personal faves)- abejas (contemporary stuff: juicy, seven, james perse, chrome hearts, ella moss), sloan/hall (not clothing, but they have awesome jewelry and homeware...i always shop here for gifts because they stock neat/unusual things), mix (very high end...lanvin, jeremy laing, balenciaga rtw), gregory's (high end/stocks htf european labels, best selection of alaia shoes you'll ever see in your life).

resale/consignment- buffalo exchange, wish, leopard lounge, taxi taxi (all our your standard young resale shops with a mix of low end/contemporary clothing...once in awhile there's a gem, but not often). there are two consigment shops on west gray...one is called bedazzle(d?), and i forget the name of the other. help me out if anyone knows...regardless, there are usually great things at either shop as they're in river oaks, which is a very old money area. tons of gently used chanel, and older brands like that...some things are actually vintage and the places aren't merchandised that well, but it's worth it to take a look around. never know what you might find.

are you thinking about "more than you can imagine" (on westheimer, near flyte boutique)? imo, it's the best houston resale shop.
