I am always checking out the lux furs (I bought a recycled fur lapel for cold nights), and broken-in purses (there are tons! I found a small black Ferragamo for pennies). This time, I found delights like vintage Chanel plaid pants, red velvet Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, a Hudson's Bay signature coat, an Hermes-inspired structured purse, and the one thing I walked away with: a pure virgin wool and cashmere beige coat.
My mother doesn't understand consignment. As my friends will remember, she always says, "it was bad the first time it was in style". However, the woman does have an appreciation for well-kept vintage. And while she laughs at the smelly mohair sweaters I bring through the door (I'll admit, I generally only wear them once), there is nothing I like more than a minimalist look spiked with a vintage punch. My cashmere jacket will hopefully impress her when we head to New York together in December.

two floors of fine finds
Some things I picked out: Gorgeous lock and an amazing leather that looks like wood!
A great take on the Hermes classic, with a strong clasp and a punch of gold.
The girl that came home with me: Pure virgin wool and cashmere beige coat with fur trim hood/shawl.
My personal style has morphed from boho queen to more sleek and clean, however I've always loved a touch of lux or something different. What better way is there to add that wow factor than some second-hand fine finds? The store's pieces are all of good value and strong quality. The only thing I walked away with was the cashmere coat- so go find something!
