THIS IS WHERE I USE THE WORD AMAZING

In the past I use to thrift just about every other day but for the past six seven months I have slacked up on buying. It's not fun anymore. Thrift stores have lost their minds and have forgotten their places. They have things priced as if they are a regular retail store— anyways that's another blog post. Yesterday I felt like going to just look. Maybe I'd find something. Something out of the ordinary. Something you rarely find when shopping at a thrift store. Long story short.....If you follow me via instagram then you already know I found a Hermès Eperon D'or scarf.  Designed by H Origny and first issued in 1974.  


Now this is where I use the word amazing and if you follow me on twitter you know I can't stand when people use the word amazing and it's not, but finding a Hermès scarf at a thrift store is amazing. If I told you what I paid for it you wouldn't believe me therefore I'm not. I use to think of these scarves were only for a woman of a particular age (in my Wendy Williams voice) but my thoughts have changed about Hermès scarves now since I own one. Yes, just that quick. Kalyn warned me. She owns several. This pattern is  very classic... like real classic but it's a keeper and I will be wearing it.

Do you thrift shop? What have you found lately that is amazing?

  4. Oh yeah! That's the kind of thing that will keep you thrifting for the next 10 years.

    My latest greatest was a pair of Marc Jacobs flats.
