We sneak a peek inside the bustling Coconut Grove-based consignment shop.

The lowdown: Prada wedges for $195? Check. Theory blazers and Chanel handbags at a downright discount? Check, check. The Fashionista has got you covered — in high-end women’s wear, that is.

In business for six years, the consignment boutique offers gently used designer labels at up to 75 percent off retail prices.

The ‘hood: Nestled in groovy Coconut Grove, The Fashionista is a stone’s throw away from Greenstreet Café on Commodore Plaza.

The ambience: Think homey chic. A glass chandelier, baby blue hues and throwback art of Marilyn Monroe art create a swanky feel.

Highlights: On our shopping adventure, we spotted coveted brands such as Tory Burch, Diane Von Furstenberg, Chloe, Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, Fendi and Manolo Blahnik.

The owner says: “We offer a fifty-fifty split for customers who bring in their clothing and accessories,” Owner Valerie Pazmino adds.
