So it’s finally 2012 and the “Best of the Best” sales have started up again! The sales were on hiatus during the holidays so I took the time to catch up on stacked posts and get ready to (fingers crossed)  go live with sale coverage. This year I would like to use this blog as a platform for what you can actually expect to find at the Saturday sales along with staff picks and favorites per store. Check out the full calendar of sales and their locations HERE. Starting out here is my coverage of the Pico stores sale this weekend:

Posh Accessories

I have never been someone that placed value on a designer label alone. That said I think there are a few iconic designer styles that have maintained their relevance and value over the years. The first of these is a Gucci bag.

At the last special sale at the Granville store we featured two vintage Gucci bags. The one above was a favorite for it’s gold hardware, clean leather print, and unique contrast bamboo detailing.

The second bag was a little more simple but it still emanated luxory with it’s rich dark printed italian leather.

Jackie O (pictured with her trusty Gucci Handbag) is the prime example of someone who looks comfortable and elegant by playing down an expensive bag. Instead of being flashy she chooses to look elegant by pairing designer accessories with simply cut clothing.  Being able to pare something fancy down in order to give it daily use is a very important facet of style.

We also got in a handful of vintage Chanel ballet flats both in patent and in regular leather. Another great example of timeless style.
