Where you should go shopping for Black designer pumps
Encore For US
• 251 Newbury St. Boston; (617)375-1059
When you’re looking for upscale clothing, Newbury Street is of course the place to go. Want to save a bundle by going secondhand? Guess what same advice. Encore offers a great selection of designer duds, including glitzy special occasion wear, at a fraction of the original prices.
Cheapsters will love these fashions by Donna Karan, Escada, Anne Klein, Saks Fifth Avenue, Yves St. Laurent, and more. A woman’s suit in off-white wool was $150 a lot less than it originally cost at Neiman Marcus. A Perry Ellis cranberry-colored wool coat slightly damaged, but definitely fixable was a mere $50.
A silk jacket by Ellen Tracy ($60) would pair well with an Armani skirt ($70). Open Tuesdays through Fridays from 11 A.M. to 6 P.M.; Saturdays and Sundays 12-5 p.m.
