The quatra-annual auctions of vintage couture at elegant West Loop auction houseLeslie Hindman are stuffed with drool-worthy, super-pricey luxuries like a Chanel three-piece skirt suit (estimated to fetch up to $7,000), a 19th-century Worth gold-silk gown for $3,000-5,000, and a Hermès black Kelly for up to $6,000. But the mere mortals among us will find treasures that even a recessionista can love: a mod Halston knit dress, a cozy Givenchy wool coat, and a number of classic Yves St. Laurentaccessories are all estimated to sell for $200 or less. The excitement of a live auction — and this well-curated selection — puts your eBay watch list to shame. So do your research, set a budget, and bid with confidence.
