DINAN the medieval city....

I forgot to post these pictures....


so let's go back to Brittany!


We spent a morning in the beautiful city of Dinan.


We were there really early and could enjoy the streets before tourists arrived.


but the shoppes were even not openned...


I was a bit ill on that day...


and I think that you can guess that while looking on those pictures...


I look so tired!!!


But I was pleased to wear my new novelty PINK skirt...


Made from a 50's vintage fabric just for me!


It matched so well with my new ERSTWILDER flying pigglet!!!


He is so CUTE, get yours before it's sold out!


And have I ever mentionned that pigglet is the nickname Sylvain use for me?


That's why this brooch is even more special to me!


I really like how Sylvain's pictures turned out.


Sometime I'm an inspired photographer... sometime not...


Handsome details helps....


and Dinan is such a beautiful city...


It's a pleasure to walk around in its medieval streets!


A lot of things to see in every corners!


Look at these nice 50's stained glasses!!!
(probably remade after the WWII damages)


But our main goal for this trip was not tourism...


We were there to pick up our '59 Cadillac...


it spent a few weeks with other vintage mamas...


to get its body restored... it will be all done in a few more weeks... stay tuned!


Did you know DINAN ?
Do you also have a silly nickname ?

Petit retour en arrière vers notre escapade bretonne et notre visite de la ville de Dinan! Malgré un bon gros rhume, quel plaisir de flâner dans ces rues médiévales de bon matin avant l’afflux des touristes!!! Mais le tourisme n'étaient pas la raison principale de ce voyage... nous étions là pour récupérer notre Cadillac 1959 dont la restauration de la carrosserie à commencer... encore quelques semaines et elle retrouvera une nouvelle jeunesse....

Going to SUPERMARKET....

People who are seing us for the first time always ask:


"Is it a special day? Why are you dressed like that?


It's hard to believe for them that we are like that all year long...


So here is for example of what we wore to go to supermarket this week.


Yes, it can look a little bit overdressed...


But life is short, so wear what you like, when you want!


Of course, it was a bit hard at the beginning to deal with these glances and questions...


Sometimes I even forget that I'm wearing something different,


it's just that I'm ease like that...


We were in Paris last week-end...


I could not wait to wear my new flea market find!


This beautiful 50's floral dress!


Perfect match with my new Miss L Fire shoes...


I visited their store in Los Angeles last month and brought back a few pairs!


This model is just so nice and comfy that I'm dreaming to have it in every colors!!!


Yellow is quite a hard color to wear for a blonde,


but why not a few yellow accessories?


Sometime, an outfit can be quite plain...


but add a 20's hat,


funky vintage jewelery,


and smart shoes...


and we have a really dapper guy!!!!


I can understand why people stare at us all the time...


Most of the time, they are really kind,


but unlike Sylvain who likes to explain our life style, I feel quite bothered about that...


Do you wear your vintage only in special occasions?
Do you like when people ask you why you are wearing that?

Les personnes qui nous rencontrent pour la première fois nous demandent souvent: "Y a-t-il quelque chose de spécial aujourd'hui?".... euh, non, c'est juste nos habits de tous les jours... cela leur parait souvent un peu dur à comprendre... Mais bon, la vie est trop courte pour ne pas porter ce que l'on veut, quand on veut! Nous pourrions peut-être paraître un peu trop classes pour aller faire les courses ainsi vêtus, mais c'est pourtant ainsi que nous étions cette semaine. Je vous laisse profiter des détails en photos!
- Bon week-end prolongé -
