Thank You for Selling

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
Took these super quick photos of this vintage Yves Saint Laurent coat at a garage sale, since we didn't have a mirror and I had to see how it fit. Its absolutely incredible and probably the most beautiful coat in the existence of forever. The woman who previously owned it was supposedly a super super model way back when all they had was black and white photos. She had a bunch of pretty fabulous things. I ended up taking this home for the price of $35.

Aw man. I still cant believe it.

Catherine said...

Vintage YSL!?! You are so lucky! This is an incredible find for $35! Love the belt on it. A lot of times things like belts go missing from vintage pieces, so you're lucky it's all together— it looks like it's in great condition, too!
