Vintage Blue

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before but I’m terrible at buying second hand clothes, and that sucks!

I see girls like Georgiana who seems to have a gift at finding fabulous vintage pieces without emptying her wallet… and me, everytime I enter a vintage store I end up with an allergy (literally) and empty-handed.

I think it’s the fact that I have no patience whatsoever… so I can’t keep too long looking among the piles of clothes in order to find something. That added to the fact that I truly believe it requires a special talent (that I obviously don’t have); a sort of radar to finding those amazing treasures.

Anyways, here I present to you my only vintage piece I own (so far)

I got it when my mom visited last October and only until this weekend I finally wore it. First because since I’m a clean freak I washed it 3 times before daring to put it in my closet with the rest of my clothes. And second because, even as excited as I was when I bought it, somehow I wouldn’t feel like wearing it.

But now that I wore it, I love it!! And I think I’m gonna be wearing it a lot this summer… what do you think, do you like it?

Location: Rue Malebranche, 5e

ESPAÑOL: Este es un look con mi primera compra vintage :)

La verdad soy malísima para comprar ropa vintage; como que me hace falta ese don para saber buscar y encontrar tresoros a precios buenísimos!

Al fin, hace un año compré este vestido y apenas ahora lo estoy usando. Lo terminé lavando 3 veces antes de atreverme a meterlo en mi closet con el resto de mi ropa (ya se, loca exagerada jaja)

Pero bueno, por fín encontré la forma de usarlo y me encanta! Aunque tal ves se vea muy “RETRO”? Ustedes que opinan?

Old fashioned Paris

Hello! hope you’re all fine!

As you all know I’m just not good with cold weather clothes, and well this past weekend, the weather was gloomy and that didn’t let me get on my spring fashion mood. This led me to try at least a bit and I ended up wanting to make a sort of “themed” shoot. 

My inspiration was “Paris in the 50s” more specifically Richard Avedon's photography and this is the result… I hope you like it!

ESPAÑOL: El fin de semana pasado Flo y yo decidimos hacer una sesión de fotos un poco diferentes. Tomé la inspiración de la fotografía en París de los años 50. En especifico fotografías de Richard Avedon (uno de mis fotógrafos favoritos)

Y este fue el resultado!

All photos by Flo and I.

I present to you my latest purchase… I’m quite thrilled about it. 
This is the first time I’ve ever bought an antiquité; I got it from a bouquiniste in one of the boîtes vertes located on the banks of the Seine.
The book is an edition from 1951 and it’s the first real book in french I’m ready to read.
I’ve always loved the 18th century and the French Revolution, but I’m not gonna say I know much about it {I love History but I suck at it}, so I’m really looking forward to re-learn many things through this beautiful french book :)
PS. I also got a box of Macarons from Ladurée with a Matthew Williamson design special for PFW, but I’ll show you that later ;)
Gros Bisous!
