Hey y'all. I'm a college student with expensive taste so (with the exception of bags) I thrift for almost all of my clothing buys. I've never posted a find, but have been lurking on this thread lately and am convinced its been giving me good juju. Every time I read it, get inspired, and head out I find something amazing!

I didn't take pictures of everything, but the best thing I found last week was...

An authentic (thanks for the info sdsurfchick) Hermes Monnaies et Symboles de Parisii by Zoe Pauwels (2006).. I paid $5!

What a great find, those are super cute! I would hate to be the consignor whose shoes only sold for $19 but lucky for you for sure!

I always knew it was real, but was confused because there is no date stamp on it. Today I was watching You Tube Videos on bags (mostly Chanel) but I watched this on on LV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEV7_vpOM64 It is VERY interesting, I learned a lot! Everything she explained about authentic LV matched my bag. Then she said that before the '80's LV did not date stamp their bags. Mystery solved. By the way, I paid $35 for this bag.
That's a great find! Vintage LV is so amazing, and IMO better made than it is today. It looks like it's in great shape, too. Maybe in need of a little love to look as good as new.

I walked into tiny antique store and right of the bat found a vintage velour Celine skirt and vintage Chanel sailor pants. Didn't buy them because they were huge and not my style. The shop had dozens of Celine ties but DH doesn't wear any:(

Then I found a tent and voila!!!!! Both were 10 each.

Adolfo Dominguez tweed yellow jacket! Love!!!

Also forgot to show some pics of how my apt is turning out! It's not my style in general because my old apt was all uber modern and since the furniture here is older I had to opt for some funky elements

These pillow make me think of Lazlo!! I thought they were the coolest thing ever! Lol
I absolutely love that yellow blazer. So perfect for Spring. Congrats on the finds!

Ah a Rick Owens jacket?! How much are they asking? I can't be buying much either as we are trying to save up for the move since I won't get my first paycheck for a few weeks after I start...it's hard!!!!

Thanks mharri20, its my first Hermes and I love it! I'm been toying with the idea of being a great daughter and giving it to my mom though.

Congrats on the upcoming graduation.. mine is May 18th!

Awesome finds, as always! I went to visit my family last week and found a Louis Vuitton garment bag for $650 at an indoor flea market. It was gorgeous, but have no need for it. Especially at that price. It was still exciting to find it though! I just came across this on Pinterest. Perfect for all those thrift store ties!! http://pinterest.com/pin/210261876325586284/

As is my opinion of most all high end bags - LV, Chane,l Prada, and even Marc Jacobs- the older ones are better made with more high quality materials and workmanship. The stitching on the handles of my LV needs some TLC though....it's my rain purse.
