As stated in previous post, I 'm really into the girly, pretty underpinnings of lingerie and sleepwear. Nothing beats the feel of silk and Chantilly lace against my skin. Seriously. Nothing. With that said, I rarely if ever purchase such delicate and personal items second hand.
This silk Christian Dior robe is an exception to that rule.
The soft feel of the fabric and classic navy blue dots drew me in instantly when I spotted this at The Salvation Army. I had visions of drinking tea on my terrace as I gaze out to the Pacific Ocean.... Oh, so glamorous! Since it was in great condition with zero signs of wear, I had to have it. This $4.99 find must have sold for at least $70 dollars at Saks back in the day.
Rumbled among mu-mus from the 70's, this coral silk chemise in PERFECT condition jumped out at me. $2.99?! Oh, yes. I'm getting this too!

With all things purchased second hand, I meticulously look for "mystery" stains; signs of wear; and rancid smells. Just a few days before, GW had a whole lot of vintage ultra glam Christian Dior chemises that I had to pass up. Dang it mystery stains!
These two discoveries at Salvation Army may persuade me to purvey their aisles more often.
