A new boutique, Looksbylo, opened in Palm Springs North this month, and it carries both new goods and consigned. According to its owner, Lauren Hernandez, it's a "full service fashion boutique in that we not only offer the latest in women's fashion, but we also offer consignment services, styling services, closet revamps, personalized client lookbooks and more." Most of the store's stock consists of new merchandise, from blouses to bags, however you can find a pair of lightly used Diesel jeans for $48, or a Young, Fabulous & Broke top for $28.
In addition, you can also find local designer, Kristina Ashley sewing up a storm inside the shop on any given day. Her eponymous swimwear label has grown a cult following of women, men and kids and when she's not working on her next collection, she's stitching up custom looks, bridal designs and swimwear, not to mention costumes for Vixen Workout's very own Janet Jones. Some of her custom creations can be found exclusively at Looksbylo, and a collaboration between the two is currently in the works.
If you go, make sure to check it out between before May 21. Looksbylo is having a monster sale to prep for Memorial Day weekend. Kristina Ashley bikinis will be priced at half off.
