Designer Items and More was founded by a fabulous local lady named Felisa. What started as an online eBay store, selling new and pre-owned designer clothes and accessories, became so successful, that she recently opened a brick-and-mortar store in Olde West Chester, just 25 minutes north of downtown, for a truly special boutique experience.
She specializes in high-end, new with tags, gently used or vintage designer items from the top couture houses around the world. This is THE place to find clothes and accessories from couture designers such as Akris, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and Moschino. It’s for women who have arrived… who are looking for high end clothing and accessories that allow them to walk into any meeting or event and feel confident, radiant and ready for anything.
There are just racks and racks of breath-taking designer clothes, and also lots of fabulous designer shoes, handbags, and accessories, plus stationery and adorable “giftables” too.
And let me tell you, I’ve never had such an amazing shopping experience. First, you call to make an appointment to come in because they are an appointment-only boutique. Then, you have a consultation over the phone with Felisa so she can learn about your likes, dislikes, your lifestyle, what’s currently in your wardrobe and what you’re looking to add to it so that when you arrive, she has clothes pre-selected based on your wishes, preferences and needs. When you come in, you try those on and work together with her to perfect your look so you feel your best!
I have to tell you, Felisa gets an absolute A+… I wish I could have taken everything home that she picked for me. I left with three bags full, so it was close… I’ve just never had such a customized shopping experience like that before.
I loved learning how my lifestyle, wardrobe, and preferences translated into a style profile, and then having hand-selected pieces waiting for me when I got there so I didn’t have to comb through the entire store on my own. I also learned a lot of fashion history about the different designers, which was neat. And they don’t just carry couture designers. They also carry more affordable and accessible lines like Michael Kors, Ralph Laruen, and Karl Lagerfeld Paris.
Right now, the store is all decked out for the holidays, and they’re preparing to have some special Open Hours throughout December, so you can pop in to shop without an appointment. While you’re there, fill out one of their fun Wish Lists, and they’ll send to a loved one! They also ship Gift Cards! You can pick one up in store, and you’ll receive a free Parisian style tree ornament with every Gift Card purchase. Or you can hop online for fast and easy ordering with free shipping
I definitely encourage you to check it out for yourself. It’s a truly unique shopping experience.
