wish list: vintage yves saint laurent

There are only a few days left until I head to Denver to see the Yves Saint Laurent retrospective at the Denver Art Museum! And what better way to get in the mood than drooling over some gorgeous vintage YSL? From ebay and Etsy to physical vintage boutiques that also offer online shopping, the internet has a lot to offer when it comes to vintage YSL. Shoes, bags, ties, scarves, and of course clothing...ahhh, the clothing. There are some many great pieces out there! Here are some of my favorites from around the web:

1/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Peasant Skirt
From the 1976 "Rich Peasant" collection, this skirt screams summertime. The tiered floral print cotton is accented with braided cobalt trim, a tie waist, and feminine ruffle detail. Boho chic at its finest.
$698, Free People

2/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Silk Bow Blouse
I am obsessed with this 1980s YSL blouse! The plaid print is so amazing, and I can't resist a plunging neckline with a scarf tie.
$56.55 (current bid), Bustown Modern Vintage on ebay

3/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent High Waist Pants
How perfect would these pants look with the plaid blouse? The off-center buttons running up the entire length of the left leg are fully functioning, not just for show, and I love the graphic, polka-dot like quality they give these 1980s pants.
$178, Electric Skinny Vintage on ebay

4/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Pleated Skirt
I love the vivid, painterly floral print on this 1960s pleated skirt. It would look perfect with a denim shirt tied right at the waistline (a la one of my fave styling moments from the January J.Crew catalog).
$315, C. Madeleine's

5/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Coatdress
You can't ogle vintage YSL without getting down on some le smoking, and this gorgeous tuxedo coatdress from the 1970s is classic. So sexy!
$399, Dress

6/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Wrap Pencil Skirt
With designers like Gucci and Proenza Schouler using brocade in their latest collections,  this emerald green metallic brocade wrap pencil skirt is seriously on trend for fall. Wouldn't it look amazing paired with this black leather top from the fall 2012 YSL collection?
$149, Your Gay Best Friend on ebay

7/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Silk Blouse
The leopard print on this blouse is so amazing! The seller's not sure if it's '60s or '80s, but it doesn't matter - either way, it's fabulous.
$275, Saffron Vintage on Etsy

8/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Cheongsam
Another Yves Saint Laurent signature, this exquisite 1980s Chinese-inspired cheongsam evening dress has a Mandarin collar and a twisted tassel detail at the top of the front slit. Asia was a major influence on the fall runways, so get a jump on the trend with this classic silhouette.
$840, C. Madeleine's

9/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Polka Dot Dress
Absolutely timeless, this black and white silk polka dot dress from the 1970s comes from the estate of a woman who saved the ads featuring the designer clothes in her wardrobe. So this chic little dress comes with a bonus - a vintage Rive Gauche ad. So amazing!
$459, Dress

10/ Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Plaid Mini Dress
This painterly red plaid mini dress with black velvet details at the cuffs, neck, and back yoke bring to mind one of my favorite fall trends - equestriana. Just picture wearing it with Gucci's gorgeous fall 2012 field boots...perfection.
$78.95, Twig & Spoke Vintage on Etsy
