Hidden Treasures

Saturday, December 12, 2009

I came across quite an unexpected discovery this week. The company where I work was holding their annual sample sale, and the employees were able to shop the day before it opened to the public. Among the $3 shirts and $5 bottoms I discovered a sweater with a detachable fur stole which I picked up, thought was awesome, and promptly placed back in the pile. I continued pawing my way through the boxes but I couldn't stop thinking about that sweater. I knew it was ridiculous but my love of costume-y things was too strong so I went back and grabbed it. It wasn't until I got home and really started looking at it that I realized it was 100% cashmere, real fur, completely vintage, and absolutely fabulous. Which I just bought for $5 at a sample sale full of teenage girl clothing. I have no idea what it was doing there as our company certainly doesn't sell vintage or vintage inspired garments, but my coworker walked out with a giant green bird cage so perhaps marketing had bought it for something? I'm going to see if I can attempt to pull this off for Christmas...
