Celeb stylist Irene Albright has long been the darling of the stylist set thanks to her Albright Fashion Library, a lending library of clothing famous for its impeccable selection of each season’s latest designer pieces. But by continually staying ahead of the fashion curve with always-current stock, Albright soon found her little library was getting a little too crowded. Enter Mina: a boutique offering gorgeous designer “castoffs” from the Albright Fashion Library at bargain prices. For over 50% off normal retail prices, savvy fashionistas can snap up pieces by designers like Marc Jacobs, Moschino, Chloé, and Dolce & Gabbana, all while mingling with Albright’s fashion insider friends and scoping nifty art exhibitions on the walls.

WHY WE LIKE IT
Ok, first of all, the prices are incredible. But cheap alone is not enough to get us in the door. What we love about Mina is that the (constantly refreshed) collections are fantastic. There are no misses on these excellently edited racks, and unlike at most secondhand boutiques, pieces often come in a range of sizes (since that’s how they’re stocked at the Fashion Library). We found the perfect little black dress here!
