Couture USA: Celebrating 15 Years With A Look Back

Following 15 years since starting the business, Couture Designer Resale Boutique has seen a variety of luxury items walk in and out of its doors. As the resale industry continues to grow for designer brands, people find themselves looking for authentic and affordable luxury items and Couture USA is there to provide only the best for their customers. From Chanel to Louis Vuitton, handbags to key chains, there is no telling what will come in!

Founder and owner of Couture Designer Resale Boutique, Catherine Ansel, moved from France to the United States 25 years ago. She started her business in Westchase, Florida in a neighborhood called West Park Village 15 years ago and one can say, the rest is history. The business has expanded every year; buying and selling authentic designer bags, jewelry, clothing, and accessories locally and worldwide. With a knowledgeable staff and plenty of experience, the store continues to grow as the years go by. 

To celebrate 15 years, we are taking a look back at some of the items that have graced the boutique's floor. These pieces range from the most unique to the most requested. Enjoy this exclusive look into Couture's most coveted items!

Favorite Shoes

Every fashionista knows that red bottoms are the ideal and most sought after footwear in the industry. The red lacquered soles, the signature of Christian Louboutin, come in different forms, shapes, and heights. These shoes gift feminine and sensuous appeal to all who wear them.

Top Exotic

Exotics come in many forms. From Python and Lizard to Stingray and Crocodile, these rare pieces come in many shapes and sizes! One of the top exotic items to find its way into Couture was a vintage Chanel Alligator Double Flap bag. It was rendered in an electric blue gator skin in the silhouette of the classic flap the brand is known for. It was definitely a rare brilliant and vibrant piece!


Lush Luxe

One of the most beautiful and luxurious pieces that made a grand entrance at Couture was an 18K Yellow Gold Rolex watch. The Rolex Submariner Date Men's watch was the talk of the town, leaving an impression on whomever gazed at it. This beautiful deep blue and gold piece was precisely crafted and built to last. 

Unique Chic

Sometimes interesting things find their way into our boutique. One of the most unique items to walk through our doors was a limited edition Coco Chanel Bearbrick collectible doll. Made in 2006, this doll was number 375 of 1000 and was only available for VIP customers. This elegant lady has a Camellia flower accent on her ear, a classic Chanel jacket, and rouge painted lips and cheeks, making this piece the perfect collector's item. 


Fan Favorite

The Cartier Love Collection is widely known for its simple yet popular design. The signature screw design has become a staple and unrivaled attraction for luxury collectors. Whether it is a ring or a bracelet, this collection is one of the most asked for from customers.


Photographer's Pick

Our photographer has the opportunity to photograph all of the pieces that walk in doors. But when you shoot hundreds of items, there has to be one that was a favorite? Lydiachose the Horizon 55 rolling luggage from Louis Vuitton as her favorite piece to shoot because of the none of the surfaces were patent or polished. The matte surfaces gave the rolling luggage an elegant and illustrated finish. 


Couture Favorite

After 15 years in business, Catherine has seen many different items and has many favorites. Her favorite was a Vintage Louis Vuitton trunk. This trunk was one of the oldest and largest pieces to grace the floor of Couture. Originally purchased by a family in France and used to travel through Europe, this large piece was crafted in 1904 with the signature Louis Vuitton Monogram hand painted onto coated canvas. Rich with history, this trunk is definitely one to remember.
