I love anything vintage and in fact I go shopping in vintage stores as much as I can. I even prefer vintage stores to the mall. To me, if you can wear a piece of fashion from years before that’s like a honor. It’s not very often you can find a great piece of vintage fashion in great condition so when I do find something I cherish it!
When I laid my eyes on the WGACA Vintage: Vintage Chanel ’80s Charm Bracelet I was instantly in love. First and foremost, it was Chanel and who doesn’t love a gorgeous Chanel piece? Second, it was the ultimate ladies bracelet having little charms of everything we love. Charms of shoes, purses, and perfume fill the bracelet and the gold has even aged to give it an authentic vintage look. The price scares me a little but when it comes to Chanel, I think we can all agree that it’s worth it.
You can purchase the Vintage Chanel Charm at Shop Bop for $3,300.
Get your schedule out and jot this down, because you’re not going to wanna miss out on this event happening tomorrow over at online sample sale site RueLaLa.

See you all there-
I can’t afford Chanel ready-to-wear just yet, but that sure doesn’t keep me from admiring. Presented by What Goes Around Comes Around Vintage is this Chanel Suit, a well-preserved luxury item from the past. To think that this suit could possibly be older than me and still looks quite modern and presentable is truly impressive. You can’t go wrong with the sleek masculine design of a jacket and skirt with giant gold buttons. What a great addition to own if you’re a Chanel collector, this size 4 two-piece can be found online through: Shopbop

In just eight years, business partners Christos Garkinos and Cameron Silver have built decadestwo into an international retail destination. Having enjoyed great critical and commercial success since the store’s inception, the owners recently doubled the boutique’s size, celebrating with a fashionably grand re-opening in July 2007. Profiled in the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, decadestwo builds on the brand of decades, the vintage couture boutique sensation created by fashion visionary Silver.While decades carries upscale vintage designs from the 1930′s to 1990′s that often appear on the red carpets of awards season, its sister store, decadestwo, carries a carefully-edited selection of contemporary clothing and accessories (mostly 1990s to present day) and caters to a clientele seeking a highly unique shopping experience.
The cornerstone to the success of decadestwo is three-fold:
A large number of the consignors are celebrities, iconic fashionistas and exuberant shoppers who are passionate about clothing.
The boutique is highly-selective, accepting only 20% of what consignors bring and offers labels such as Balenciaga, Chanel, Chloe, Marc Jacobs and emerging designers.
Everyday shoppers enjoy savings of up to 80% off of original prices.
Drawing on his 20 years of brand marketing experience in Hollywood, Garkinos initially created the concept and the provided the seed money for decadestwo in 1999. He joined the venture full time six years ago. With over 1800 consigners and a thriving clientele, Garkinos and Silver have built up a remarkable global network of consumers that, as Garkinos says, “passionately hunt, gather and recycle” clothing. The company also has strong presence on eBay as well as their own website and blog.
As Garkinos says, “We’ve become a fashion victim of our own success! We now have over 1800 consignors worldwide and are happily inundated with the fab items we receive.”
