Vintage shopping Paris

Vintage shopping in Paris : you have the choice in between several second hand shops. There are those with very very low prices, but you have to search in big heaps for the one piece you might like. Then there are well arranged secondhand shops :

This thrift store got two shops in the same street : one is dedicated to Kawaii clothing.

Some pics of my thrift store haul

I will put some badges on those denim items. Will post when it’s done.

The black and the pink one come from Japanese Kawaii shops💋❤🐩

I wear my haul with a pencil skirt I bought during summer sale at H&M.

I found the bag in an outlet shop Rue de Rivoli in Paris.

I’m happy with my make up.💄🐩

That’s my face when hubby is making fun of me 😂😂😂

Hope you enjoyed this post

Renovating and decorating

Every time we go to our second home in Bavaria, we take the time to make big and small improvements. It takes a lot of time for we do all by ourselves. However,it’s extremely satisfying to achieve our goals.

Customizing my jeans jacket

I found this jeans jacket by Zara for 7€ quid in a vintage shop.

I bought some funny pins during sale. So easy to add a bit of fun to your wardrobe.

Look with a leather skirt

Leather skirts may be looked at as vulgar but it depends on the cut/length/colour and how you wear it.

I paired my olive green leather skirt with a nice plain jeans shirt and midheels. If you wear high heels you are at risk to fall into vulgarity.

My bag is soooooo big and easy to wear with a lot of outfits. I just had to add my sunnies I found in a vintage shop in Paris.

  • Skirt by C&A
  • Shirt by Ines de la Fressange (vintage shop in Paris)
  • Mid heels by San Marina (summer sale 60% off)
  • Bag by Justfab
  • Sunnies from a vintage shop in Paris

This outfit has a total cost of 130€. I’m  happy to find and mix lovely outfits for a reasonable price. How much do you spend for fashion? I try to look out for bargains. So I can easily buy a whole lot. 😂😂 

Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I did shooting them with hubby. ❤

Wish y’all a lovely day

Hugs & love from Paris to wherever you live 🇫🇷✈❤

Vintage in Paris

I love buying clothes in secondhand shops. Usually I go to a “friperie” situated rue de la Verrerie. They sell nice stuff and have boxes where you have to search in a heap of clothes to find the treasure. But those pieces are sold for 1€.

Today I wanted to try another secondhand shop : Guerisol. It’s a kind of chain, they have several shops in Paris. I went to the one next to the subway station Barbes-Rochouard.

Paris is quite different there and not at all touristy. A lot of exotic shops for people from Africa : food, electronics, clothing …. It makes you feel like you have quit France for Africa. 😀

The secondhand shop is quite big and most of the clothes are well arranged. You can easily go through the rackets. Prices start at 1.5€, 3€ for non-branded dresses and 7€ for brands like Zara, Ines de la Fressange x Unicqlo or real leather.
Here we go for my haul 😀

In love with antiques

I just love antiques stores. And so does hubby. As every first Sunday of each month, we visited hubby’s mother in Normandy. It’s such a lovely road, especially during spring and summer. All the properties and farm houses are so colourful with all the flowers blooming everywhere. Now back to the antiques shop. It’s a stately home where the proprietor has transformed the first floor into a shop. The arrangement is just so beautiful I had to take some pictures I want to share with you.

Below you can see an ancient society game.

Guess what this chair was meant for! In the middle of the seat you can pull open a space an underneath you put a kind of big bowl hidden in the chair’s basement. Yup …. Ancestor of our toilets.

And best of all, we purchased this beauty for our bathroom.
