I am a good mom, at least I like to think that I am. I took my son and his friends to Coachella. Of course being a parent they would have died of embarrassment if I went with them so I decided to explore the thrift stores around Coachella. Coachella has a very charming center of town, but I was amazed, it felt like a ghost town. I was the only person out on the street and it wasn't that hot. I guess if you live in the desert you live indoors.
There are two thrift stores in downtown Coachella. The first one I went to is called Oasis.
I purchased these two items for a little over $3.00 a piece. The top is from Tribes, light 100% cotton and will be perfect for summer and the fun 100% cotton skirt is Liz Claiborne. Both are in perfect condition.
The other one is called New Life. I have always wanted a asian robe and was so happy to find this one. Then the greatest find of my outing was an Yves Saint Laurent Encore, 100% wool dress made in France. Imagine my surprise when I got to the counter and they told me my total $2.00 plus tax. I had just purchased an Yves Saint Laurent for $1.00! The Encore line was introduced in 1993 for American women.I couldn't find this dress but a jacket from the line originally retailed for $600 to $800 so I really found a treasure.
So if you ever find yourself outside of Coachella,
