Today I went to Value Village. All I found was really bad fakes. Oh well (sigh).

Tried to post a photo of my new(to me) McQueen item, but my phone won't let me load it :( I will attempt it again later on.

I know the newer models come in European sizes. The vintage I'm not sure but these look real to me!

Thanks for the response! I'm thinking of selling the others and buy some new ones that I like!

Eventually I would find something so amazing that doesn't for me and have to buy it just to sell it! Now I have a full closet of stuff that I need to sell but it's not that easy to sell on eBay! Specially clothes! If I had a tip don't buy just anything to sell, buy what you love and if you love it less tomorrow, sell it! Sometimes you will be surprised about what people are willing to pay for stuff. For me it's become a fun hobby!!! I can also justify buying more stuff if I'm selling some!
So true, very difficult to resist great bargains!

Ugh! I keep on seeing many things that I like LOL! But yeah, trying to cut down on buying a lot and just bring home the stuff that I love the most. Ebay seems to be a great idea, I'm gonna read more about it.

You bargain hunters have some amazing finds on here! A $300 legit Birkin?! Makes me want to hit up the thrift shops every day.

Here are a few consignment items, not total steals but timeless finds (purchased before I knew the brilliance of negotiating):

Chanel '98 jacket ($500), Hermes 'Smiles in the Third Miillenary' scarf ($250)


I'll have to peek in the closet and get some pics up of real deals.

Thanks. It's difficult to tell, but it's all embroidered with skulls and flowers and guns and peace symbols and lots of other things.

Oh I love it! Nice color, the skulls are totally awesome. A lot of work went into the design. I'm glad you were able to post it. It's a work of art!

I wonder if it's "clean out your fakes" time. Went to one of the GW store and they had Chanel, several LV's, all fakes! Left the store empty handed.

You make me want to look for McQueen pieces when I had no interest before "meeting" you and seeing your pics. Thank you

The saddest thing was I wanted to find a Chanel flap but guess what? I found it alright... As a fake.
