diane von furstenberg wrap dressThe wrap dress by Diane von Furstenberg was revolutionary; does anyone do it better? Launched in 1974, the distinctive style—free of frills and unbound to time-consuming and restrictive fasteners and zippers—mirrored the women’s liberation movement of the 70’s. It enabled women to enjoy sexual freedom and be on the go in seconds flat. Suddenly dressing was easy in a way it hadn’t previously been. Flattering in all the right ways, the style spoke to women of all heights and sizes, simply wrap and tie at the waist. Typically made from jersey and cut knee-length with long sleeves, the design was suitable for the workplace and evening wear. The wrap dress is professional without losing its feminine qualities. Many versions have emerged since and lucky for you, we have amazing, new designer consignment Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses in-store.

Take notes from actress Naomi Watts, effortlessly juggling business and pleasure, all in style and grace while wearing the wrap dress. Timeless and easy to care—wear with women’s resale boots, heels, wedges, or flats—every resale lover is in need of at least one in her closet. Designer consignment has never been so timeless.

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
