Thrilling thrift finds: Lanvin ♥ Acne and Miu Miu

So, in the fullness of time I and E. took up the long-awaited trip to Viljandi. Our purpose there? Patently to thrift shop. The actual outcome? A fireplace core for our (hopefully) soon to be dining and living room, a non-thrifted etnies tee for E. and surprise, surprise - a thrifted pair of gorgeous (rather vintage) Miu Miu slide loafers which were only 4.- euros. How supremely awesome is this? And now I'm pretty much in love with Miuccia Prada's Miu Miu shoes (the name of the collection is taken from her nickname by the way). Therefore I put together a collage of my up-to-date Top 5 starting with place nr 5:

5. Patent leather flat flip-flop sandal, coral, 290.00;
4. Ayers embossed calf leather platform pump, orchid pink, 460.00;
3. Glitter "starfish" flat flip-flop sandal, silver+anise, 490.00;
2. Patent leather platform sandal, aquamarine, 430.00;
1. Naplak sneaker, pale pink, 330.00.
A girl can at least dream, right? By the way, I'm curious, do you own something from Miu Miu? If yes, is it thrifted or non-thrifted?


Anyhow, now about my Lanvin ♥ Acne denim belted shirt dress which is also thrifted (already in February) but had all the price tags still attached and cost probably 6.- or 8.- euros whereby the initial price was around 560.- euros, so a massive yay!
The Alber Elbaz Lanvin-Acne denim collection originates from the end of year 2008 and my dress has short sleeves, a round neck, two breast pockets, brass button details and two large zipped pockets. The denim belted shirt dress is knee-length and the belt has a brass buckle.

Oh, and the matching necklace is a beautiful gift from my dear blog friend Mongs. She also sent me a lovely hand-made bird brooch but you'll see this one someday in the future with another outfit. But enough of clothes and fashion now! All in all we had an exciting and successful day with a touch of some yummy food (I kind of miss those french fries!). I hope you like my photos and of course be sure to share your thoughts because I love hearing from you.


I was wearing: sunnies - Haga Eyewear; necklace - a gift from Mongs; blazer - H&M; dress - Lanvin Acne /thrifted/; heart tights - Lindex;  flats - Amisu; slide loafers - Miu Miu /thrifted/.

  3. Cute list. :) I don't have anything by MiuMiu.. the bow bag looks sweet though! Oh gorgeous loafers, really nice bright colour. Can't believe someone sold them on cheap price like that, but good for you ;)

  10. mulle meeldivad samuti rohelised kontsad ja ketsid. ja kleidileid on ju super! ma kujutan ette, et mul kapis see eriti palju rakendust lõpuks ei leiaks vist (mul on kohati mingi teksakiiks, a ma loodan, et see hakkab vähenema), kuid no patt oleks ju sellist asja poodi jätta võileivahinna eest! ja tundub, nagu su juuksed kasvaksid iga päevaga pikemaks :D nagu märkimisväärselt lausa.

    1. ma tahaks neid ketse nii väga! aga Prahas vist ei müüda Miu Miu asju, vähemalt nende kodulehelt tuleb nii välja :( Euroopas üldse vähestes riikides müüakse..
      aga juuksed on lokkis olekus isegi veits lühemad ikka kui reaalselt. kui nad märjad ja sirged on, tuleb omajagu pikkust juurde. ei teagi kohe, mis nendega toimub :D

  34. I am currently so in love with Mui Mui and all the sparkly accessories! Especially the sunglasses. I love these shoes and cannot believe how cheap they were - what an amazing find. I have never found designers in charity shops before, maybe I will head to London next week and see what I can find!

  50. I am always absolutely blown away by your amazing thrift finds - particularly the low, low prices! Miu Miu flats for 4 euros is practically a miracle, especially considering that they look like they're in perfect condition :) I don't own anything from Miu Miu, but I like to think I will one day... Maybe those fabulous green sandals on your wishlist, for example? I think they would fit nicely into my wardrobe ;)
