The lovely Katarina Brunette is taking over our Girl Talk blog today. Keep on reading to see what her top Michael's finds are and how much she loved shopping with us! 

When searching for designer pieces, second hand is my favorite way to shop!  There’s something about walking into a consignment shop having no idea what you may find.  They tend to have unique and vintage pieces that you won’t see many other people with.  Second hand designer truly excites me because it feels like you’re on a hunt for the perfect piece and not just easily ordering a common piece online.

I went into Michael’s Consignment this week and totally fell in love.  They had such a large variety of shoes, bags, dresses, coats, you name it.  They sell brands such as Chanel, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Burberry, Celine, Fendi, and lots of others.  I picked out 5 of my favorite pieces from Michael’s Consignment to share with you guys!


Chanel Black Quilted Bag


This exact vintage Chanel bag has been my dream bag for the longest time.  I think this is the classiest bag of all time and gives any look a chic touch.  Pairing this bag with a simple neutral look like a camel coat, black turtle neck, and black booties is such a classic look and never goes out of style!  But since it’s black, it also could look great styled with any color combo.
Chanel Tweed Dress


As you may already know, Chanel is my favorite designer.  So when I saw this tweed Chanel dress I knew I had to try it on.  Tweed is one of Chanel’s signature looks and this dress fit like a glove!  For a more edgy look, try throwing on a black leather jacket over it!

Ferragamo Black Patent Leather Gold Heels 



Everyone needs a good black heel in their life.  I think the gold heel is such a pretty and unexpected addition to a traditional black pump.  Since the heel is pretty low, these shoes are perfect for work or walking around the city!

Chanel Blue Ivory Wool Vintage Jacket



Tweed blazer sets have been very in style lately which is why I knew I wanted to try out this one.  They can be very elegant and professional but also cute and trendy if styled right.

Balmain Shearling Coat


My last pick from Michael’s is this super cute coat by Balmain.  It’s this gorgeous blue gray color and think it would look adorable styled with white flair denim, or even some straight leg jeans and block heels or booties.

As I am getting older I’m realizing you truly get what you pay for, quality wise!  If you’re looking for a piece to last without completely breaking the bank, second hand designer is the way to go.  Be sure to check out Michael’s Consignment online or in store if you’re in NYC!
