Shopping Secrets

There are some shopping secrets that I will never give up. This story is about one of them.

The Saturday after New York I was wandering downtown with my friend MJ. Usually when we are out he takes me to his favourite consignment shop to troll for designer duds. We hit the motherload on this visit. MJ is the best person to go shopping with. He has this uncanny ability to identify the crap and zoom in on the good just from looking at the rack. What really baffles me with him is that 99.9% of his choices are so spot on. This guy knows what works and what doesn’t.

The most perfect skirt black knife pleated skirt with yoke by Chanel.

It’s unfortunate that my picture is really shitty. You can’t see any of the pleat details, quite a shame. I fell in love after I twirled around. It fits and drapes like a dream. It’s easily the best skirt I’ve ever owned.

Can you guess how much I paid?

  1. itsasecret,

    LOL, All I will say is that it’s a consignment store in Toronto.

    475 is way too much, it was much less than that, but more than 75.

  2. Hahahaha…… The skirt looks hot, and I can’t wait till we go back again to troll through the racks…. Maybe after I come back from Paris!!! Can you hold out for that long?
