Recent Purchase: Milkglass Salt & Pepper Shaker party!

I went to the street Antique Fair on Sunday and found these lovely pieces.

Then, I moved onto the next booth and found these cute ones (not even realizing I already own one of the pieces...)

And then... at the next booth, they had the set of FOUR!
It is rare and hard enough to find two pieces together.
I had to get these too!

Now, I have a collection...
(I also bought this rack at the same fair. How convenient!)

Recent Purchase: Urban Outfitters Skinny Ties.

Two weeks ago, I went to Urban Outfitters and I noticed they were doing the "extra 50% off on all sale items" sale.
I could not find anything in the women's section and I found these two reasonable skinny ties in the Men's section.
I cannot wait to wear them on Tie Wednesday!

You can still buy the same tie here on their website, but the price is not discounted...

Great Thrift Treasure: Marc Jacobs Long Skirt!

I hardly ever go to thrift stores for clothing any more, but the last time I went to Goodwill to check out some milkglass, I decided to stop at their skirt section.
And this is what I found...

Marc Jacobs Long Skirt
$??? → $4.95 !

It was one of those "ugly cute" pieces but I thought I can use it for my boho/hippie style fashion.

And then I noticed that the label says: MARC JACOBS and I wanted to scream!

Today, I was searching for the "best fashion blogs" online and I found this blog by Goodwill. You can see all the amazing pieces that you can possibly find in your local Goodwill.
The blog is called DC Goodwill Fashionista. I love the Anna Sui jacket they posted today. You should check it out!

!!BIG NEWS!! Vivienne Westwood is opening her only US store in LA!

I know... it still sounds like a dream but it is TRUE!

How did I find that information out?
It is actually an interesting story...
As I wrote in the blog below, my friend Kamaal and I went to Rodeo Drive last weekend.
When we were at D&G, the shop staff noticed Kamaal's lovely Vivienne Westwood socks and complemented her on them.
And he said "You know... VW is opening a store in Melrose..."
and we both said "WHAAAAAT??"
I am so excited!
I have been waiting for this moment since they closed down their only store in NY after 9/11.

The address of the Melose store is:
8320 Melrose Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90069

I have confirmed that they won't be open till early next year, possibly January or February.


One Saturday morning at Rodeo Drive

Kamaal and I went to Rodeo Drive for window shopping last Saturday.

Rodeo Drive is a shopping district famous for designer label and haute couture fashion. The name generally refers to a three-block long stretch of boutiques and shops but the street stretches further north and south.

We were excited to see Miu Miu and D&G F/W collections, but it was a bit too early. They still had S/S and pre-fall collections there.
I thought I would never like CHANEL, but their pre-fall collection was AMAZING!!

CHANEL's pre-fall collection is called "Shanghai"
The Asia inspired design reminded me of Vivienne Tam designs. 

I actually saw this coat at the store and it was my favorite! I was too scared to check the price tag though...

The runway show was done actually in Shanghai. It was one of the most beautiful runway setting I have ever seen.
You can watch the show here.

I recently watched two CHANEL related movies and they were pretty interesting.

Tie Wednesday with lovely pins!

We have been doing this "Tie Wednesday" for a while now and I think we both started to feel like we need to be more creative with our tie selection every week. Today, Kamaal and I both wore pins with our ties.

Cute bunny pin from Anime Expo!
