Our Story

LavishUForLess is a family owned and operated re-commerce on-line shop for authentic luxury and contemporary fashion.   


We come from a long line of women who  loved dressing to the nines, but didn't have much money.   They were creative renaissance women who made their own dresses and hats.  They also up-cycled their shoes by decorating them with brooches, costume jewelry or beautiful pieces of fabric. But, these creative women were also resourceful.  As their families grew they stretched their dollars further by shopping at thrift stores.  When they wanted that something extra special, which was otherwise cost prohibitive, they'd turn to the ultimate shopping destination for pre-owed, high end fashion, a consignment shop. 


Sometimes, our grandmothers or mothers took us along when they shopped.  A trip to a consignment shop located in the upper North West section of Washington, DC was always magical. The store entrance featured a front window lined with shimmering white Christmas lights.  Inside the window was a statuesque mannequin draped in a fur coat while strings of  long gold chain rhinestone & pearl necklaces hung gracefully at the neck.  A step inside made ones eyes pop out in wonder.


Beautiful clothes, stunning high heeled shoes, handbags and jewelry, were charmingly placed around the store.  Upon leaving the store we could not help but notice how overjoyed grandmother or mom was with their purchase; it was almost palpable. 


Fast forward many years later, we still feel that joy every time a new found high end piece makes its way to our store.  As you look around our shop we hope  you feel the same way.

Coming in January 2020 you can consign with us.
So, stay tuned!

Come on in and shop.
