Last time I was in New York, my friend and I went scouring the consignment shops. While in the Upper East Side, we came across the mother lode. Sadly, I can't remember the name of the shop. At any rate they were having a 50% off sale on their already reduced merchandise. I struck gold when my hands landed on these Gucci slacks. They still had the tags on!!!! They are silk, but they feel like wool and they drape beautifully. My husband could not stop commenting on them. I got them for an absolute steal. A mere fraction of what they retail for.
