WOW.

a few weeks ago, a brown leather vintage look satchel bag-you know those ones you see in portobello for 40 and upwards? It was 2. And a turqouise crystal bracelet, for 2, but that was brand new with tags on. I'm gonna go back tomorrow, they have all these wooden bead necklaces in.

I've been going back and forth to Fly Boutique, and im eyeing the same black/grey tweed Dior sport coat, it's old, smells weird, and the lining, that is white, is now all yellow, especially under the arms , it's not cheap, and it doesn't fit that well, but im willing to get it and re constructing the lining, the shoulders and everything, and use it as my vintage project for next quarter in school, when we should buy a vintage piece, take a picture of the before look, take pics of the process of cutting, adding and substracting, and then the final look...

Then again $150 dollars for that coat is not that good of a price, yeah it's Dior, but it's tweed, I won't wear tweed down here, and im just going insane about it because its a Dior jacket , otherwise I wouldn't have even bothered on looking at it...

Which takes me back to what im always saying, I shouldn't look for the label, I should look for the style, the fitting, the unique side of it, the craftmanship... but then again, it's Dior,

Today I found a Movado watch for 1.00. There is one on Ebay (#4936953361) just like it. I hope in only needs a battery. I have wanted a watch like this since about 1989 but just could not justify the price. I just grabbed the watch paid for it a came straight home I was so happy.

my best find at a thrift store would be a dark blue blazer that looks very similar to the one ashley olsen always wears with the gold buttons.

I found an eggshell-colored shoulder bag, covered with plastic things that look like pearls, cut in half, and I love it. I think it was only $12. Old ladies stop me wherever I go to tell me how much they love it, or that they have a bag just like it.

Haven't gotten the chance to thrift shop much but my favorites are:

A silk cashmere lace detailed cream sweater for $3
A vintage 50s brown wool coat with a fur collar for $21

99cent marc jacobs
i went shopping at the salvation army recently...hadn't thrifted in a while, and got the urge...well i brought some INCREDIBLE things! but the best were two items: a pair of marc jacobs slingback heels for 99cents and a beautiful anne klein black see-through, pleated blouse.

their retail price (i guess?)


the anne klein blouse

you cant see it very well...ah.

i also got some jesus sandals from prada (at a consigment store)...but i let my friend borrow 'em, so i'll take a picture later.

what do you think? amazing- my grand total at salvation army equaled $4.00
