$2 suede cowboy boots. Today.

I get all my shoes vintage...all under $4. And 90% of them have been used in my test shoots or actual jobs. I love it when they are credited as being "stylist's own". No, actually, they're mine.

a vintage Chanel chain strap bag for $25 in a small town thrift store

It had come from the estate of a woman and her son had no idea what Chanel was, and the owner of the shop had no idea either. In fact, she said the only reason she priced it "so high" was because the leather and strap were so high quality.

Chanel doesn't authenticate (I don't think) but every guide I've read seems to confirm that it is indeed authentic. It's the quilted lambskin, black, with the double C's on the front and gold chain strap with the black leather woven through.

I've got one that sounds just like that, too, except mine is red. I'm pretty sure that mine is a fake, even though the leather quality is shockingly good.
