Bargain Finds


On Que Style Outlet


By Suzanne O'Connor

I thought I’d seen just about every kind of women’s resale boutique out there. Low end, high end, Urban, Niche luxury handbags…. The works. But up to now I had never seen an outlet for one.  Yes, I said “Outlet”.

Corona Del Mars luxury women’s resale boutique On Que Style is terrific all on it’s own, selling better higher end women’s brands at 50%-75% off original retail. But it was their Outlet store that blew my mind.

Hidden in a business park in Irvine, with little to no signage, is where they clear out past seasons items that didn’t sell or move fast enough at the regular store at additional discounts of 50%-90% off…. That right I said ADDITIONAL DISCOUNTS! Discounts on the discounts!

So, to get a clearer picture of what happening here, let’s look at just one example.  A NWT, amazing wool and leather Rick Owens cape had original retail tags on it at $4000. It was at the Corona Del Mar store for $1595 but didn’t sell. Here it’s an additional 50% off at $800. That’s a $3200 savings!

Granted, the items here are generally past season and often more than several years old. But if you choose wisely, you can build a wardrobe here from higher end, high quality clothing and designer handbags for a pittance.

The day I walked in most of the store was 75%-90% off the CDM stores prices. There were racks and racks of top designer clothes to shop.

Some Rag & Bone Skinny jeans that retailed at $200, were $100 at the CDM store but were $25 here. An Emilio Pucci blouse retailed at $600, was $295 at the CDM store, but is here at $29.50…. a 95% savings of the original retail. A Moschino blouse that retailed at $120 was $60 but is here at $15. A Catherine Maladrino silk layered skirt retailed at $250, was $125 is now $39.50. A Derek Lam silk shirt that was $800, was at the CDM store for $400 but is here for $100. A Nina Ricci dress was $13.90 instead of $300 and a Brunello Cucinelli cashmere cardigan that retailed at $3000 was $149! A Calypso St Barth Dress was just $5.

There was a terrific selection of luxury handbags by Gucci, Coach, Louis Vuitton, YSL and others. An Epi leather Louis Vuitton Petite No Bag was $250 instead of the original $1960 and a Louis Vuitton Small Recital bag was $250.

I spotted shoes & boots by Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Miu Miu, YSL and more, all priced at near or over 90% off original retail.

The boutiques environment is urban chic and the sales staff here is smart, charming and helpful. Plan on visiting this hidden bargain shopping treasure often. New gems arrive daily.

It’s a new favorite for me. Will be for you too!
