Isn't She Lovely?



I went to a yard sale this weekend and just happened to stumble across this buttery-soft leather Junior Drake bag. Tags included, originally $389. They had a lot of bags that I liked, but the detailing on this bag won me over; tobacco color, exposed zipper, braided handles, silk lining. The only thought in my head, "marry me...please?" They hadn't marked it, so I had to ask. And since it had literally never been used, I was expecting it to be way out of my price range. I asked anyways and it turns out they were desperate to get rid of every single thing they had and would gladly except $15 for it. You would have to be out of your mind to let this steal pass, which is exactly how I ended up with three bags that day. Now that is what I call successful shopping!


Because people pay hundreds of dollars on shoes, bags and clothes it's fascinating (and relieving) when you find great deals like this. Where do you turn to for your best wallet-friendly finds?
