joining the success stories

You know those stories you always here about amazing thrift store discoveries? Like the girl who found a gucci belt for 50 cents or the girl who happened apon a burburry trench for $10? I have actually now got one of those stories. There I was, just innocently purusing the purse section of my local thrift store when I saw a cute little blue bag with a gold chain sitting equally innocently on the shelf. I have to admit, I almost kept walking. The front of the bag was facing away from me so I picked it up, turned it around and suddenly my eyes were assulted( in a very good way) by a big pair of intertwined C's.



Damn straight. And it only cost me $7.50.

Why is everyone assuming it's vintage. It looks new to me. I hope it's real, because that would be fun.

Im always finding really nice stuff in charity shops but never anything designer. It's a lovely bag and I agree with Isabel, it looks pretty new.
