Find treasures in nooks by hook or crook.

I got myself to the Surry Hills markets last weekend and found a smashing Chanel top for $20:

I have to say the top has given me more pleasure than the recent Chanel Haute Couture show, the bulkiness of which I find not wholly pleasing. Though it is nice to see Baptiste Giabiconi is still working hard for the money:

How awkward - your eyes go straight to the groom, right?
