Currently Loving | Alice McQueen Consignment


Some of my favorite shoes: Diane Von Furstenberg, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jimmy Choo


My favorite spot in the store, the shoe wall!

Today's Currently Loving post is both a currently loving and an about town post all in one. Alice McQueen Consignment is a brand new Richmond based shop; and I was fortunate enough to spend last Saturday with the two fabulous ladies behind the store. We spent the morning chatting, shopping, and of course snapping photos! The store is blogger heaven with all the gorgeous white finishes and beautiful items! I have never been in a consignment store quite like Alice McQueen. The owner Mimi has an incredible eye for snagging gorgeous (and basically never worn) designer pieces. The clean and sleek store is the perfect backdrop for her gorgeous items. I left with an amazing Steven Alan dress & DVF top that I cannot wait to style and share with you all! 

I also asked Mimi to share a few words about her store and how it came to be!

"Alice McQueen Consignment is the brainchild of Mimi Tanaka, 23, a Richmond native and daughter of 40-year Richmond business owner, Yoshi Tanaka. After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University's School of Business in 2012, Mimi decided she wanted to follow her father's footsteps into the world of entrepreneurship while focusing on her love for fashion. She envisioned an inviting, high-end consignment boutique where women felt as comfortable as if they were shopping in their best friend's closet. In bringing her vision to life, Mimi enlisted life-long friend and marketing professional, Hope Frank. Hope recently moved back to Richmond from Chicago where she spent two years at Ogilvy & Mather working on integrated marketing, advertising and social media strategy for global clients. The two have been friends since attending The Steward School together."
