I found this awesome red leather bag at Goodwill for $1.25!! I carry it like everyday, although I have several other bags, one never used, I just can't get enough. I get compliments on it all the time too.
I like finding sweaters and t-shirts at thrift stores. :punk:

I found these amazing silver gypsy style earrings at my favorite vintage shop yesterday. They were only $45 and since I was about to have a pair made for $250 I think I got a bargain! The style is similar to the ones Audrey is wearing.

my best thrift store find must be a copy of Leonard Cohen's novel 'Beautiful Losers' which I'd been looking for all over town but hadn't been able to find. And there is was, in all its 1,25 euro glory...

my vintage bright coral red princess coat that my friend bought at a thrift store for $8. I traded her a purple leather skirt (!!! which I had actually bought to give to her...) for that coat - best trade of my life! it looks quite a lot like audrey hepburn's red coat in breakfast at tiffany's, although I actually like mine better because the shape is sleeker.

also, a blue wool vintage givenchy a-line skirt that I bought for about $1.25. it's absolutely gorgeous.

I found a great brown leather Miu Miu jacket with dark purple stitching for $75. The leather was in great condition, no cracks or dry spots.

Another great find this last weekend! A caramel brown vintage leather jacket. It's fitted and slightly broken in - and I only paid $22 for it!

Shucks, I almost said Macy's and Bloomingdales but as they are not really vintage, then I'll say Crabtree and Evelyn? Or Wet Seal is sometimes very chantilly.

Yippee! Today I bought a gorgeous wool scottish kilt for $10.00 which I am going to wear with black knee-length lace-up boots and a 70s velvet jacket so that it doesn't look too "mumsy".

The best things I have found at a thrift store include
Valentino couture vicuna coat ($12. Last september)
two Florence Knoll black leather settees ($20 each!!!,a couple of years ago)
Baccarat decanter ($80. last year)
1950's black leather motorcycle jacket ($20. last week)
There is a silent auction here every Saturday and I used to frequent,Once I got there a little late and this Old man had beat me to a set of 4 Verner Panton wire cone chairs with blue seat pads.He was driving off as I got there
I have more luck finding house stuff than clothes.
I have a friend that would find AMAZING things.He found a pair of white painted Margiela tabi boots.I thought that was INSANE.

My fave thing has to be my hot pink pumps with a 2 -3 inch heel, brand new for 2.99! I get comments on them whenever I wear them out. My 5 y.o cousin calls them "tay-tay's barbie shoes"!

I was so innocently riding my bike last night when I happened upon this amazing vintage/thrift store.

I got:
two 40's/50's bathing suits(very modest, yet still very cute)
two scarves
big round sunglasses.


I had to make myself leave b/c I needed to get home, but there were still several rooms I hadn't gone into yet and I think I 'm gonna go back and get earrings that I've thought about.

It was sooo much fun!
