You guys find the most fantastic stuff!!

I live in Canada, and it's much harder to get deals like that here The only *cheap* designer item I bought that comes to mind is a Vivienne Westwood white waist-high skinny skirt. But that was purchased in NYC at Century 21 For about $80.

I think I'm going to move to America just to be able to shop at Nordstorm Rack! I'm so envious of all you super cheap designer purchases

possibly the best 'designer score' i've gotten is a silk square hermes scarf.. when i worked in boston someone left it in the dressing room, never claimed so i figured it deserved some love and it wasn't getting it in a drawer full of markers and discount stickers.

i'd love to post it and for someone to identify it.. where could i do that?

wow!! You definitely deserve it over someone who would just leave it and not claim it Congrats. Someone left some Chanel sunglasses where I work and I was able to have them after no one got them

I'm not sure I'd call it 100% designer...

But a Dillard's department store closed here and I got some cool dresses...

Flower dress from Betsey Johnson (below) - it's a sort of acquired taste, I know... but there's just something about it

Retail: $298.00
Paid: $14.99



And some other BJ dresses that retailed around $400.00. Another sexy strapless sequin dress that retailed for over $400... $14.99.
