valentino makes my heart go pitter-patter (even at $3,290) but for $48, this 50s floral brocade set would surely be mine if the size were only right.

that at-a-loss-for-words stunning chanel fine jewelry diamond and 18k white gold feather brooch for more than most of us can comfortably afford or this 1950s sparkly rhinestone feather pin for $24?

(truth be told and all things equal, I'd take the diamonds any day....but really. that 50s pin is pretty fabulous!)
