What is that ONE thing in your closet that you got for a bargain/for free that you think is THE BEST THING THAT HAS EVER GRACED YOUR CLOSET?

- I’m talking about that vintage dress found scouring through a boutique which was bought at less than $5.
- Maybe that designer handbag you had to wrestle someone over – bought at a fraction of a fraction of the original price at a sample sale?
- Possibly those shoes that were bought 10 years ago that have been to the cobbler for a face lift more than courtney love’s?
- Or maybe a hand-me-down from mom’s closet before your mom was, well, a mom?

The point is that everyone HAS THAT ONE PIECE.

Mine is a tie between my Gryson Tutu bag – (that I just got recently at the savefashion pop-up store at the port authority – from $95, it was $ 220!!!!), this Stella Mccartney Silk Dress I got at an Intermix sample sale (from $1400 it was down to $79… yah I know, WHAT?!) and my lela rose patent leather peep toes from PAYLESS SHOE SOURCE. (yah I know)

I think I’m leaning towards my $24 lela rose heels from payless. I use it everytime I want to wear heels and I beat them up pretty badly because, well theyre from payless! but the funny thing is, when I get a scuff on them, I get upset because I love them so much! haha

tell me your best, most favorite buy EVER!

This black polka dotted dress I bought at a really skechy looking thrift shop for a complete bargain. I would wear it to bed if not for the fact that…actually I can’t think of a convincing reason NOT to wear it to bed. Maybe I should start.

This Diane Von Furstenberg sweater I scored at a local thrift shop. The detailing is amazing. And it was only 4 Bucks! Vintage Designer wear for 4 bucks cant beat that. Oh yeah and my low cowboy shoes I wear nearly every day. They are super duper comfortable and stylish as well.

A vintage beige blouse with a really cute flappy collar I bought for $1. And also a beautiful vintage cream silk blouse with interesting collar details for about $6. Although that’s less of a bargain.

right now at this moment? My Norma Kamali for Walmart batwing cardigan that I wore today. Best $18 I ever spent at Walmart!!! Another piece I love to death and will never give up is a (brown & pink) silk dress by Alexandre Herchcovitch I haven’t even had a chance to wear after 2 years of owning it…

I have a few!
- My absolute favourite earrings. Black and beige houndstooth button earrings: $2
- Small blue vintage-inspired purse: $5
- Peach short-sleeved satin blouse with crystal buttons: $1.79
- Blue/red/green patterned scarf: $0.50
- And pretty much any of the shoes I own from Payless ShoeSource. I fully abused my discount when I worked there, and I have so many pairs that I got for under $10. And even a pair I bought for.. FREE?! Yup.

This is the hardest question ever, most my clothes cost me under a dollar, so they all seem like bargains! Maybe it’s my chanel sunglasses (the two-tone ones) I got them for $100! I’m too scared to wear them often though!
