Vintage Chanel, Anyone?

If you’ve been looking forward to the day where “free,” “vintage” and “Chanel” can be put in the same sentence (or if you’ve ever wanted to know what a sequin Mickey Mouse looks like in earrings) then today’s your lucky day my friends.

I teamed up with local consignment boutique, Luxury Garage Sale, for a little photoshoot and giveaway. Almost all of the pieces here can be found at the Luxury Garage Sale store (1658 N. Wells) or on their new website. So yes, you don’t have to live in Chicago to shop things like THOSE Marant boots that sold out everywhere (but they’re at LGS brand new), this Saint Laurent dress that would require me to go to the gym so I haven’t bought it, and this Chanel jacket that pretty much just speaks for itself.

So before I share the juicy details of this Vintage Chanel giveaway, I’m going to make you look at all this cool merchandise they have right now. Cue, the photoshoot!

Moving on from the quirky and fun look to something a little more…mysterious.

And if I were to dress in any way “sexy” (which I do not) this is as close as as it’s going to get.

    • Congrats to Colleen Boudreau who won the vintage Chanel earrings. Thank you to everyone who participated. I loved seeing your Pinterest boards!


    I love your style especially since its not about following what’s “trendy” right now. You look is very unique and high fashion without following what everyone has.

    Anyways… aside from the contest part of this, I really want to go back to LGS and try on and buy some of the things I pinned. Thanks! I had fun with this.

    One woman’s closet clean out is another woman’s fashion treasure!
