Then I found a green shantung silk top and a pair of old Levi's - the top was £2, the jeans were £3.75. Would be a great gigging outift me thinks!

- a few loose t-shirts perfect for wearing with dark skinny jeans and flats (both for $6)
- three button down shirts for work $10
Wow, awesome find with the Gucci! Too bad about the dress though, it must have sucked so bad.

Today at Valu Village I found a pair of Ferragamo brown croc flats for 3.99! It was one of those Valu Villages were they price some shoes expensive and then keep one of the shoes behind the counter, so I guess they didn't know about Ferragamo!!

When I was on maternity leave last autumn I went on a binge on e-bay - shoes mainly. I bought loads of pairs, all mainly for about £1 (plus P&P of course). Some were a bit nasty, but I got the most beautiful pair of sort of light blue/gray leather wooden heeled mary janes. I wear them all the time. (as an aside, they are an exact colour match for my Paddy bag)

All in a weeks bingeee...


A very vintage looking Gucci bag. Its a light brown/beige colour. It has a gg monogramed exterior. The gg's are suprisingly small with 4 dots around each one. With a large leather circular patch that has large GG on it on the front pocket clasp. All the zippers are gold with the gg monogram on one side and on the other it says "Gucci" "Made in Italy". On the inside there is a leather tag with a golden picture of a knight with two flags next to it or something like that. Above the picture, it says Gucci. Below it, it says "Italy" with the numbers 001 1127 just below. Can anyone authenticate it? Though I am almost positive it's an authentic Vintage! I wish I could take a photo of it!It cost me $4.99! I dont think they checked the inside!


A very small Louis Vuitton shoulder bag. The interior is green and logo'd on fabric. Not sure if it is authentic. The craftsmenship is amazing but it has no serial number or inner tag. The zippers and hardware are all gold with LV logo and "Made in France" on the hardware. $3.99


A fake Coach handbag. - $3.99


A mens Versace polo that looks amazing on me! hah. It's white, collar-less but with 4 buttons with medusa's (I think) head on each one. It has a tag on the outside bottom right corner of the shirt that says Versace and some other stuff with some numbers on it. The top left of the shirt says Versace Jeans Couture in silver threading. Has Versace tag on inside. - $6.99


And my most prized posession of the week - A CELINE WALLET!! - $4.99


I also found a Cindy Crawford Hardcover Makeup tips book - 99Cents. AND TONS N TONS OF COSMOPOLITAN MAGAZINES! All farely recent issues and one from this month! 49Cents each.


A black extremely oversized croc skin tote. - 3.99

^ Nice things, punky.

This weekend I finally found some little boy's blazers that fit me well. One is a wool Christian Dior (the whole suit, actually), and the other is a grey jacket from "Tom Sawyer" brand.

Score!

^ It's all up to hard work, and how well you know the city you are in. Try the wealthy old money areas, however not so posh areas can have the BEST things too.

Ask around...in fashion student circles, the best charity shops can be a hot debate.
