Melrose men's shop Carlton Drew caters to dudes who dig the yacht-loving East Coaster look, but this week, ladies will have a reason to hit up the Beverly Grove boutique by way of our nation's capital. This Friday and Saturday, women's designer vintage and consignment store (and DC insider fave) Ella-Rue is taking over the prepster outfitter's digs for a trunk show stocked with wares previously worn by New England's elite. (Weren't you already in the 'hood for Bustown Modern?)
Expect to find apparel and accessories for up to 20 to 40% off by international haute couturiers like Chanel, Hermés, Lanvin, Oscar de la Renta (including the gorgeous gown above), Givenchy and more; cult fave brands like Isabel Marant and Elizabeth & James; plus luxe footwear from Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo, among others. There's no guarantee (at all) that you'll score a piece of our FLOTUS' stylish wardrobe; however, you can peep some of the goods at Ella-Rue's Facebook here.
