For many of us, designer goods are a rare and guilty pleasure, but La Place might just take all that guilt and throw it out the window. Tucked away amongst busy Stanley Street’s restaurants and offices, right around the corner from party-central D’Aguilar Street, La Place is a mini retail haven filled with secondhand and vintage fashion and accessories from all the major brands—at very attractive discount prices. Dig through the racks for a killer cocktail dress by Parisian fashion house Leonard, or a sharp slim-fit jacket from Louis Vuitton. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to score some Jimmy Choos or Manolo Blahniks for under $1,000 a pair. This shop also has a more upscale counterpart on the 25th floor of the Stanley 11 building across the street—but we think you’ll be just fine in this comprehensive basement lair.
