Walker Viden Luxury Consignment

By Suzanne O'Connor

Though I live a more casual lifestyle, I still want the best, for less. I am not motivated as much by brand or designer as I am by quality and design. Thankfully, I have found Walker Viden in Pasadena.

Just open 8 months, this small, charmingly sophisticated shop carries the very best women’s designer brands at 50%-75% off original retail. But it’s the owners, Jennie Walker and Addy Viden educated eye for quality and design that really sets this resale shop apart from most. It’s one of the best curated designer resale shops I have ever been in. That’s probably because they love what they do and have been fashion hounds for decades.

Their keen eye is evident in the well edited selection.  I spotted Ungaro, Phillip Lim, Rodarte, Gucci, Prada, Chloe, Chanel, Valentino, Balenciaga, Marc Jacob, Missoni, Miu Miu, Donna Karan, St John,  Marni, Loubotin, Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Jean Paul Gautier, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Celine and more.

I immediately honed on to an Isabella Fiore leather embroidered handbag at $224 instead of $680. A stunning Salvatore Ferragamo suede pencil skirt was $156 instead of $400. A beautifully cut Gucci pant suit was $276 instead of $800. A totally mod Escada blouse was $116 instead of $330. An amazing statement making yellow coated knit jacket by Balenciaga was $995 instead of $2500 and a Rachel Roy beaded cardigan was $100 instead of $300.

I fell in love with an Alice and Olivia eyelet skirt for $295, but then noticed the matching bralette at $195…Geeze, I’d have to get to the gym to make these work for me. But the Miu Miu blouse was a steal at $140 as was the Missoni knit vest at $100.

Shoes and boots are plentiful here with Bagley Mishka, Aerin, Prada, Pierre Hardy, YSL, Donald Pliner and more. Some classic mint Louboutin red suede pumps were $375 instead of $650 and a pair of YSL black pumps were $375. Some hipster House of Harlow leather wedges were $95.

Handbags are sweet and hot here. A Coach backpack was $225, a Derek Lamb handbag was $295, a Louis Vuitton Bowling bag was $595 and a large Versce black satchel was $1295 instead of $2500.

Just when I thought I couldn’t resist a second longer, I was reminded of the late hour and ducted out. But this is a hot bed of quality luxury items for less and I will be back to nab something amazing like that Isabella Fiore handbag, as well as to visit the charming and smart owners.

This is a must shop for designer clothing enthusiasts! You’ll LOVE it! Add it to your list.
