Unfortunatly, we didn't made a lot,
because all our trip in Paris are always really busy!
Familly, friends, visits and shopping...
About all these pictures were taken on the same day...
At St Ouen flea market...
the oldest flea market in the world!
Do you know that the word "flea market" comes from there? Because in the XIXth century, people started selling second hand clothes there and most of items were quite dirty, people don't wash them often, so there were a lot of fleas! That's why people started to call this place "flea market"... "marché aux puces" in french!
My personal Santa Claus found my Xmas present in this incredible shop! I have had since 40's hat for more than 10 years but never wear it... but I customized it with vintage velvet flowers to fit my outfit colors!
We haven't been to St Ouen for about 4 years and it changed a lot.
It's much more clean than in the past (no flea anymore...)and 50's stuffs are eveywhere, you can see it's a fashionnable era nowadays... it used to be ART DECO last time we went there but now modernism is a must have!
There are so many nice small restaurants, so frenchy will say our american friends!
We spent all the day there but we didn't have time to see all what we wanted, it's so big!
It was a cold windy day but we had so much fun!
We were there with some really good friends of us,
so it was even better!
That's not a cheap place but you can find almost everything that a vintage lover can dream about.
I really love the outfit that I was wearing on that day... a lovely 40's coat but not only...
Unfortunatly night was there really fast...
but it didn't stop us to shop vintage!
We went to a shop called "CASABLANCA" which is selling clothes before the 60's.
I found there an amazing atomic NOS early 50's bikini... I have never dared to wear a bikini... perhaps at the next Viva Las Vegas pool party?
Here is why that outfit is so special to me... matching 40's coat and skirt!!!
Even if our stay was short (4 days) it's always such a pleasure to come back to Paris really one of the most beautiful city in the world!
Have you ever been in Paris?
