Old-School Department Stores Serve Up Modern-Day Finds

Vintage leather satchel--I have a real weakness for perfect little bags like this...they always add just the right little dose of Ali MacGraw.
Back in the day, lots of classic designers used to produce exclusive collections just for a select group of high-end department stores. Blum's, I Magnin, Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor...all these vintage fashion institutions are a good place to hunt for unexpected designer relics. Here are some we've got our eye on...
vintage-i-magnin-faux-fur-jacket-ebay-1214091. Vintage faux fur jacket from I Magnin--Loving the great shade of winter white AND those awesome pom-poms.
vintage-lordtaylor-80s-suede-dress-ebay-1214092. Vintage '80s suede dress from Lord & Taylor--Kind of Jessica Rabbit, but with the right shoes, on the right girl, at the right event, this dress could really steal the show.
vintage-nordstroms-tiger-print-jacket-ebay-1214093. Vintage tiger-print jacket from Nordstrom's--Sort of pricey by eBay standards, but entirely worth it considering how gorgeous it is. Basically, just put this on and you're done.
vintage-leather-satchel-ebay-1214094. Vintage Leather Satchel--I have a real weakness for perfect little bags like this...they always add just the right little dose of Ali MacGraw
