I’m not lying when I say this but I literally walked into a thrift store and withinthe first 30 seconds I had these 3.1 Phillip Lim white slacks in thetight grip of my hands. True story…. I couldn’t believe that in myhands were a pair of white Phillip Limslacks, I have never seen or found this brand before inside a thriftstore. Every major luxurious high end department store represents thisguys brilliant creations. Phillip Lim was born in Thailand, in 1973 toChinese immigrants who fled to Califo

I can honestly tell you this… I have witnessed countless women clients of mine try on any Vivienne Tam item and watch them foam at the mouth with excitement. Foam might notbe the correct word but you get my drift ….salivate, drool, slobber,dribble you name it because they all do it when they try on VivienneTam.

I have never heard of this brand LBK Loubarok before but that didn’t stop me from grabbing this item.These olive capri pants are made in France by a company I had a hardtime Googling.

When you Google the name several links take you to sites thatare selling LBK Loubarok items and judging from those sites this isn’t ainexpensive brand. I’ve seen dresses sell for $740
Let me just say this ‘it’s truly an earth shaking experience when you find Roberto Cavalli inside a thrift store’. When I first spotted thissheer and charged up blouse by Cavalli I couldn’t believe my eyes so Ihad to do a ‘doubletake’. Good thing my eyes are still 20/20…..

These black linen with spandex and jeweled bottoms Blumarineslacks are indeed a very rare occurrence esp. when they are in pristinecondition. Anna Molinari is the creative director for this brand andcreates clothes that are considered to be true cult items. Blumarine isone of Milan’s last holdouts for women who demand full on good timedressing with a cheerful disregard for polite moderation
I love this entire ensemble from top to bottom, it flows so effortlessly and looks simple chic. I don’t know why I’m going to tell you this but I’m going to fire away. When I was a growing up in south Texas in the 70′s and as hot as it was during the summer time my parents believed in dressing up so therefore my brother Darrell and I had to dress up. I can remember every Sunday for church we dressed up, never in blue jeans, tee shirts, tennis shoes or sweatshirts. I mean my parents made us dress
