You find really great great clothes! How do you do it? I have the impression that in Paris, everyone is looking for vintage stuff (and know the value of it) so it's hard to find not too expensive things.
But I found lots of great stuff! Some of my favorites :

- a camel brown soft suede leather coat with fur collar for 15 euros
- a vintage perfect Sonia Rykiel black skirt
- a vintage sheer silk black blouse by Guy Laroche for almost nothing
- a Hermes light summer jacket for 15 euros! at a charity shop
- a Vivienne Westwood black top with white collar and ruffles going down from it, and white sleeves (hard to describe) that makes me look like a sexy victorian waitress or home maid
- and great bags from my grand-mother : like a beaded black one, a satin black with flowers pouch, and a lovely real crocodile one

Keep posting, I love to read all that!

The only vintage thing that I adore, are my Valentino red leather loafers, they are buttery soft, and they were never used,I got them on a vintage shop here in PR, owned by two ladies who travels a lot and gets great deals, real and fakes... and just 85 dollars!!...I was browsing, and I saw them on ebay, for 300 dollars. I dunno if they are fake, but I always get compliments when I wear them

My favorite yellow-black-and-white plaid wool dress came from a major thrift score! I was taking in some shirts for my sister, and I saw this dress...

It is heavy-weight wool flannel. The bodice is cut on the grain, and the plaid is so large that one repeat is all it takes to make a large, dramatic, tic-tac-toe shape across the centre of the bodice. The skirt is cut on the bias, four gores, maxi-length, and the plaid is matched up perfectly so that you get a pattern of chevrons and diamond on each seam.

Words cannot describe how much I adore this old dress! I am completely neurotic and anal about plaids matching up, so when I saw this dress, and found that it was my size, I simply couldn't resist. The $12 price-tag didn't hurt, either.

My best find at a thrift store has to be my Marc Jacobs coat with the patches it was a couple of season ago but when I bought it the season was still current anyway the coat retailed about $250 on sale I think and I got it for a whopping $50 bucks....
