Today I will show you two of my consignment scores that I wrote about yesterday: the Etienne Aigner wedge sandals and the new bag. When I was in elementary school I once saw an ad of a great Etienne Aigner bag. I showed it to my mom and said that I wished she would have such a cool bag with this cool A on it. My mom said she does not like the bag. As a kid I did not understand that it probably meant she did not like the price.
I had totally forgotten this brand. Probably because when I was earning enough to afford such a bag I had moved to East Germany. There Modavo watches, Festina watches, and a cell phone were the it items among career women, not to mention a 190 Mercedes. Well, I have got the Festina and took the tram or train ;).
When I saw these sandals at the consignment store and found out they were my size, I had to have them! They were brand new, never worn $38! Based on the imprinted size I assume they were a gift bought in Europe. I bet they did not fit. Well, they fit me very well and look great with the burgundy cashmere V-neck sweater, brown Gucci suede leather belt, and LV silk scarf. Don’t you think so?
The scarf picks up the color of the leather capri, sweater, and wedges. The new Jaeger bag is in the same color family as the pants, and its shade is just enough different to make the combination interesting. The buckles pick up the brown of the belt, shoes and scarf.
