What gorgeous stuff. Great pieces & great prices. I love orange AND beading, so that CMV is TDF!



Amazing! Vintage tags, but it looks so modern. I love the designers ahead of their time.



My heart skipped a beat...those Chloe boots are gorgeous. And I bet that jacket is cute on. So much of Armani is too boxy, but this looks like it has great shape.
Yes I agree about the Armani, it's very form fitting though, I actually just realized that most of my Armani is collezioni, i think its his more youthful edgy line, lots of assymetrical And hiper clothes. I normally would buy this jacket cause I stick to more edgy stuff but ok out of work clothes and thought this was perfect!!

i definitely think they are real, never saw a messenger but the totes look identical. Also the fact that they are uncommon prove that they are probably not a replica!

I got a vintage Chloé jacket! 27.50 at Crossroads but I had my trade credit so it's like it was free, right? The collar and trim are oh-so-pettable velvet!

Not too sure of the age but I love it![/QUOTE]
You have such a cool sense of style! Love chloe!

First up another pair of jbrands!!!! Capris. But regular pants to me. Haha. 5.74
Attachment 2429371

This is pricey. And going to eBay. Or crossroads. We'll see.
Attachment 2429372Attachment 2429373

Also going on eBay because they're not my size. I couldn't leave these there tho. Practically brand new and barely and wear on the soles.
Attachment 2429375Attachment 2429378

Not designer and not the best pic but I kinda liked this shirt. Pretty gold design. Came to 5.99
Attachment 2429379

And one more to come shortly.
Nice finds, I also have a ferragamo skirt that is too small for me, they don't let us try on clothes at the thrift so I take my chances! Lol!!

I was thinking the same thing! You should definitely try! It would be an awesome pic to have if you decide to part with several of them!

My baby was 4 wks early and weighed 8.8 lbs.... She was the biggest baby in the NICU (we joked that she looked like she ate the other babies lol) and she has been in a different milestone schedule than my other 2. However I have noticed that once she gets there she masters that skill very quickly.

Do you ladies have any idea at what age they start grabbing items (toys, etc) and putting them in their mouth? She's not doing it yet. She has interest in lights, musics, etc. She likes her toys but has not interest in grabbing them yet.
I read that babies that had IUGR can have growth and motor skills delay, as well as behavioral issues... I'm a bit worried.
Chiming in here as another parent of a preemie baby. My first born was 4 weeks early and weighed only 3pounds 7 ounces! Yikes, I did not even know babies came that small By 1 years old we stopped adjusting his gestational age. He was caught up. He did have many food allergies and asthma until school age.

BUT .....

He is now 15 years old, 6 foot 1, class Valedictorian and eats me out of house and home

My main errand was to go to Crossroads and be rid of some clothes. What an awesome experience compared to BE!!! I'm lucky if I walk out with $5 in credit. So imagine my delight when I walked out with $90 in cash annnnd I scored my first pair of JBrand jeans. 😁 Granted not nearly as cheap as you all have found but for a short girl like me, perfect jeans are hard to come by.

Since I had credit, it's like free right? Attachment 2424248

Nice jeans. I bought some J Brand on eBay for around 40, but they don't fit yet. Boo! They're my goal pants now.

Poor Misha, my heart breaks for him losing his best buddy. Making him comfy is all you can do.

Gonzo and Blue's pic made my night!

Aww. Does he lick the butter tub clean?

I have a friend who's baby was born 27th pregnancy week, he's was 1700g, now he is 5 years old now and there are no issues. I think these things in development you are talking about should happen around 4 months of age.

Around 4 months is when they start doing that. I know it's hard, but don't worry too much. Check out a website and book called The Wonder Weeks. I loved it!

I actually paid 11.24. So exciting. To keep or not keep is the question. I originally thought it was a cape (didn't bother trying it on at the store - was simply too excited to uncover it) but it's still cute. Actually looks like this.

I have a question for you ladies. Do you dry clean the coats and jackets you thrift or can I just throw it in the dryer on medium heat for a bit?
