Happy Accidents

Those who know me rather well are painfully aware of how I long to make a little piece of Chanel my very own. They, and I, are also painfully aware of the financial reality that prevents me from doing so. Imagine how overjoyed I was to stumble upon a little jewel on Mont-Royal street yesterday afternoon while doing a little post-breakfast shopping with my girls. LXR (943 Mont-Royal E) is a tiny vintage boutique in a shared space with local label Molykulte, that specializes in second-hand designer finds. There were cufflinks, belts, bracelets, wallets, scarves and bags by the likes of Hermes, Fendi, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, and, of course, my beloved Chanel. I came thisclose to buying that pearl pendant on the bottom left but managed to find the willpower to leave it behind... for now. It's okay, I'll be back. I can wait for the perfect piece. And since I know next to nothing about shopping for vintage designer accessories, I'm definitely open to some tips and advice on the subject from you all, my lovely readers. Visit LXR's blog for information on new arrivals or sign up for their newsletter.
