 This weeks sale at our Pico store was smaller in scale but definitely yielded a few treasures. Despite the fact that I have been attending “Best of the Best” sales for several years I am always surprised at how insane (in a good way) some of our donations are. For example, I can not imagine parting with a three piece YSL wool suit in mint condition! I aspire to someday be the kind of woman that owns so many lovely things that even my donations are interesting (and not just fast fashion discards).

Hiatus

Our “Best of the Best” sale cycle can be kind of confusing even for the most hardcore thrift fans so I just wanted to remind everyone that after a two week break we will be back in full swing this week. This weeks Saturday-Sunday sale takes place at our Pico location . Be sure to mark it on your calendars so you won’t forget!

My first Fall post! I bought this vintage Kenzo skirt a few sales ago at our Canoga Park store but due it’s weight and length it is not at all practical for Summer. Maybe I am getting a little ahead of myself and way too excited (blame it on the pumpkin spice lattes) but it is finally time to think about sweaters, tights, and dark colors!

My friend Angel helped me style this look today and lent me her Opening Ceremony bag for the occasion.

Keep it Simple.

With the weather being an on and off source of anguish these past few weeks, I have been steering clear of wearing anything too fussy. During the work week it is easy enough to get away with a button-up , some skinny trousers, and ballet flats but I hate to be so boring when it comes to the weekend. Instead, my weekend staple has become this slinky long black vintage dress from the British label “Ghost” that I picked up a while back from our Veteran store.  At first glance it is indeed kind of boring but upon closer inspection you can see that because it is cut from Rayon it has a thinness to it that also perfectly contours the body. The length is also super 90′s making it also very “now”.

In styling the piece I was inspired by the old Japanese magazine cut-out featured above. Don’t get me wrong, I love color and crazy but sometimes you just need to wipe the slate clean and rest your eyes on something clean and simple.

Lovers of vintage pride themselves on owning clothing and accessories that no one else has.  A true vintage eccentric wouldn’t dream of carrying the same “it bag” or status bag as everyone else, they would instead look for something unique and fitting to their personality. I have compiled a few extra special bags for this post that blow their over-rated contemporaries out of the water.
