Major Score

I had absolutely no intention of spending any money while I was in Hungary working on some fabulous shoots and visiting my family, but when my mom asked me to run some errands with her I politely obliged. She wanted to check out a second hand store where they had an all for ONE EURO sign out and probably because I didn´t expect it... I found the most amazing fall pieces! The good thing about second hand shopping in a small Hungarian town is that ocassionally some major designer pieces pop up, but as noone knows the designer a 350 euro Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress can easily find it´s way to the one euro rack! Yep! No kidding! I´ve also checked out their more "expensive" section where (for 13euros each) I scored a Max Mara wool/angora jacket (retail price around 350 euros) a Massimo Dutti fall jacket (retail price around 130 euros) and a beautiful Morgan jumper (retail price around 100 euros). And that´s my friends what I call a major score! ;) My mom always told me that anyone can buy expensive things (if they have the money of course) but buying expensive things real cheap is the real art of shopping! Couldn't agree more! ;D

Hi Gabby!

That dress is SO beautiful!! I love second hand shops...but in Portugal you can't really find many..or almost none! When I was living in Vienna I would love to search for second hand things in the Naschmarkt! Sometimes I would score something!

love your blog!

These are some beautiful pieces! It's a wonderful thing when you can stop for such wonderful bargains. I love the gray blazer - definitely would have been something I had picked out as well. So, so glad to have stumbled across your blog this afternoon. It's wonderful!
