News flash for the Louboutin Attacker: Stilettos are not worth maiming for.
A discounted pair? Maybe. Okay, never. But stay with us.
Call off the meathead bodyguards and head to Fillmore & 5th, now open on Union Street. The Crossroads folks essentially took the finds from behind the register and filled a boutique with covetable designer consignments.
You may have to throw punches for a preowned black silk Balenciaga maxi, Matthew Williamson beaded top, or Proenza Schouler tweed skirt suit at a fraction of the price. Each hangs elegantly on a rack suspended from the ceiling or wall in the bright white space with dark wood floors. Pass the jewelry cases (stocked with Gorjana, By Boe, and Whitley) and make your way to the rear for new cashmere, denim, and seasonal separates.
Keep calm at the shoe wall, where studded Miu Miu pumps, Manolo Blahnik velvet loafers, and Giuseppe Zanotti cheetah wedges might incite clashes.
Try to keep the peace.
Fillmore & 5th, 1775 Union Street, between Octavia and Gough Streets (415-814-2061 or fillmore5th.com). Consign items during buying hours or leave them for an email quote. Look for our favorites; we tagged them with a “DailyCandy Pick” label.
