CHANEL!!

Not a name that we see often (and when we do it’s never authentic). This dress was an exciting find. Vintage Chanel. Very cool, amazing lining with CC’s and a subtle floral print. And 150% authentic!! There is a sweet little ‘purse’ on the hip. Amazing detail, amazing dress! We paid about $50 after discount.

Sale Day!

We love 50% off days at Value Village! Whether it’s to go back for something that was too ‘expensive’ last week, or for a whole new search, we always leave with something!

These Seven For All Mankind Ginger jeans were marked $39.99 (way too expensive for second hand… though very expensive jeans). 50% off (and my size) made the decision easy.

These gold shoes from Bakers were only $12 after the discount. And are like new! Pretty peep toe and I love a unique heel.

And this Free People skirt came to $3. Like new, it will be put away for Summer!

Happy thrift shopping!

Dresses! Armani and BCBG!

Here are two Value Village finds in my size (yay!). First is an Armani dress. $17.99 and like new. Lined and so cute! This photo does not do it justice (my goal for 2011 is to get a better camera!).

This BCBG tunic dress (or long shirt) still had the original BCBG tags on it. We paid $7.99!

More Past Finds! Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Karen Wilson and Coach!

Here are a few more of our amazing past finds! This beautiful Michael Kors dress was not even close to my size, but at $7.99 worth the price of alterations. We figure this would retail around $1700. The detail is amazing. Hands down, my favorite dress.

This beautiful little bag is by Canadian designer Karen Wilson. As a family, we’ve found a few of these! I believe this was around $10. I believe they retail around $300. They are sold at select boutiques.

And for one of the best deals yet! This Kate Spade (retailing around $200) was all of $3!!!!

And this cute leather Coach bag, from the Soho line, was only $30!

Happy shopping!!!

Waiting For Summer! And Diane von Furstenberg!

A fabulous find is always that much more fabulous when one of us can wear it. 🙂

This beautiful silk Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress fits me (yay).  Another reason to be anxious for Summer! 100% silk and beautiful!  And was $13.99 – 30%!
