Diva Consignment Boutique in Old Town Alexandria is a dream come true for fashionistas on a budget.
Located on South Pitt Street in the heart of Old Town, and just round the corner from the Monaco Hotel, Diva gives a whole new meaning to the word ‘consignment.’
Think Channel, Yves St. Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg, Prada and Michael Kors.
Owner Cindy McCartney, a striking blonde with impeccable style, was in cosmetic management for years and a self-described ‘shopaholic’.
One day she decided enough was enough.
Why not sell and be surrounded by what she truly loved – designer clothes, handbags, shoes, jewelry – and why not recycle the treasures languishing in her closets?
Cindy said she knew from the beginning that she wanted a European feel, she wanted to be in Old Town Alexandria, and her shop would be named for one of her beloved Dachshunds – DIVA!
She got her wish and three years later she is a destination location for many and a happy find for unsuspecting tourists. Not surprisingly Diva was named “Best Boutique” by both Washingtonian Magazine and Northern Virginia Magazine in 2009.
The day we were there the shop was a beehive of activity – just think of playing “grown up dress up” with your girl friends – with Cindy as the consummate hostess.
Consignments are taken by appointment only and held to very high standards. As Cindy noted, her collection is very focused and very special.
So what are you waiting for? Go. Now. Diva Consignment Boutique in Old Town Alexandria.
