Shopping Vintage: Designer finds on a budget

I've been thinking a lot the last few weeks about goals I've been wanting to set for myself. One major one, that actually kinda surprised me, was that I wanted to invest in quality pieces in my wardrobe, yet still thrift shop and do all those crazy shopping adventures that I love. So, after a little bit of research, I've found that going Vintage Designer shopping (on Etsy) is actually very affordable!  Here are some pieces that I'd love to have in my wardrobe.

Studded Furla Purse-- $125
Ray Ban Sunglasses-- $67

French Designer Shoes -- $74

YSL Necklace --$84

Chanel Pumps -- $100

Burberry Skirt-- $50

Missoni Shirt-- $25

Maurice Dress --$142

YSL Crossover Blouse-- $46

Ferragamo Sandals- $34

All at a FRACTION of the cost of Designer finds today. Those things cost a frickin' arm and leg just for a look at 'em. Definitely not in my price range. But these? These babies would fit right in perfectly.... Just perfectly.

i think we all like really, really nice things. and how many of us can afford them. SIGH. i have to get everything on sale. sometimes i go for MORE items rather than for all quality items. it would be nice to have a balance of both. :)
