Treasure Found

15 November 2010











Thank you fashion gods! I went to this store that I
hardly ever go to, I haven't even been since summer.
Anyways, yesterday morning I went to my favorite
bagel place, Einstein's and since I was nearby I went to
it. Anyways, I found the perfect satchel I have been searching
for! Practically identical to the Alexa Mulberry one. I can't
ever afford that one, so this one will have to do. I know it
absolutely will. It fits into my wardrobe so wonderfully,
and I can even fit my giant cameras in it. Both at the same
time even!

I hope you have a lovely start to your weeks!

PS- I thrifted this dress a few years ago... You will never guess
where it is from! The answer is... Express! It is so strange
how much styles at certain stores have changed.

I love the look of girlish florals and structured blazers! You've got such a versatile style.

That bag is going to fit in wonderfully I'm sure!

kate maggie said...

That bag is seriously perfection! I am so jealous of you right now. eeep. I need to find one asap!! x

Sara C said...

Lol you're right I would NOT have guessed that was from Express :) When my mom was young Abercrombie and Fitch sold sporting goods, lol.

I love it when you find that perfect, perfect pieces out of the blue. It really is like treasure hunting!

Kayley said...

So great! I'd love a dress like that. That purse is awesome! Perhaps I should stop into stores I've neglected for years ... hmm ...

Kirstin@CrimsonRosella said...

What a perfectly sweet dress! I have been looking for a bag like this for quite some time, I am dying for a well worn looking leather bag!

A Little Brighter said...

Oh! That satchel does look JUST like it :D adorable outfit and sometimes I find 90's floral dresses with the tags still attached and they are from the stores that sell completely different stuff now too!
I always wonder what vintage from this era will be like in the future!
Lovely oufit you are the queen of florals

The first thing my eyes moved to was the bag in this purse! It is exactly like the Alexa! Love it! And yes, vintage EXPRESS pieces are amazing! I always spot them at thrift stores! Now if only EXPRESS kept on making things like they did 20 years ago and I would be a devoted shopper!

You look wonderful!

Dylana

I thought that was an Alexa bag at first! That is a brilliant lookalike! I might have to get one of these, since the actual Mulberry ones are waaaay out of my budget.
