A Commes des Garcons short-sleeve printed shirt. It's perma-wrinkled. I got it for about 4 bucks, I think.

this thread is great

last summer i found a pair of grey pants, bootcut but with very narrow hips and a oh so slight flare, though it looks straight cut and it also flares a teensy bit from the waist... in any case, its perfectly cut. it cost me $12, but i have no idea who could have made this... its made of denim but it looks very finely treated, or perhaps its denim mixed with other material... in any case, i love it! id just love to know who made this, it has tags but theyre all blurred out, intentionally!

i've also managed to find some pretty cool tshirts at the kids department, i always get compliments on them...

All the thrift stores around here are either in the poorer areas or near old people homes. No cool vintage or designer finds here

Excpet for the tiny chanel section at saks, you can't find designer in real stores even in my area so not finding it at thrift stores isn't a surprise.

I found a really large womens red Moschino sweater which fits me like a mini dress. Today I wear it with a pair of leggings and it looks amazing. It was only $1.50!! I'm guessing they had no idea exactly what "MOSCHINO" is valued at.


I also fish through old RECORDS which I love to do. I have some really old finds which I've framed and happen to be black and white so it all looks very mod with that hint of vintage. Love it.


Any tips on how to figure out the year of production of a piece of clothing? A tip I could use while fishing for vintage...

Last week I found a GORGEOUS brown top that I could SWEAR looks like it came straight off a Marc Jacobs runway but it has no tags and the seaming on the inside is HORRIBLE and looks unfinished but on the outside it's absolutely beautiful. It's brown and vest-like but very light with a collar that is white on the inside. It has a low-cut neck and about 3 large white fabric buttons going down and then about 5 inches of fabric rests below. Unbuttoned. It is just stunning. My guess is it's hand made.

Oddly enough I was browsing a few online sites and found a pic of a top that looks a LOT like the vest.



It's exactly like this but in vest form. It's brown though, same material with white detailing. The buttons are the same but there are 3 going down (spaced apart) and they aren't in pairs.

but now you get the gist of it...

Sadly I don't find anything worthwhile. I'm so jealous.

I got a Christian Dior black and white coat from the Salvation Army for $50.00. It fits perfect, and even has an old Neiman Marcus tag inside.

Not sure if this counts as designer as such, but here goes.

When I was a kid I used to help out at a jumble sale in the church hall at the bottom of my road. One day I took home a box of 'bits' that were left over from the stall I'd been helping on. In it was a pearl necklace that we later discovered to be real. If I ever sell it I will have to give at least half to that church.....
