Here is what we wore last saturday to go to flea market.

With such a nice sunny weather...

I had to let one of my large hat going out!

HUGE vintage hats are my favorites!

and that was a hats day... why?

because I scored 3 large 40's one at the flea market we visited!!!

and a few other great things of course!

We are lucky to have now friends who are sharing our love

 for vintage and flea markets...

these american friends now live in Germany close to our place!

You must visit the blog of that sweet friend Christine:

We definitively need to plan a post together soon!

During that photo shoot, we accidently found a new mode on our camera...

Pictures that are looking like paintings!

Really funny.... 
you must look at them as big as possible to be able to enjoy this special effect!

but we had to take all the pictures twice because of that mistake!

but a few pictures looked really nice in that mode...

A real Van Gogh!

I fell immediatly in love with that dress on Etsy
from the lovely shop TheWordfromtheBird.

It was new old stock still with tags attached!

Not a cheap one, but the novelty fabric is so lovely!!!

Fruits, vegetables, squirels...

I scored this shinny black purse at Viva Las Vegas!

Nerver enough black purses...

I really love my new ERSTWILDER butterfly brooch.

Don't know why but I don't have a lot of blue costume jewellery.

It's always funny to see how my husband and I can choose the same main color without saying anything to each other...

I mostly notice that when I'm preparing my blog posts....

Same taste? Telepathy? 

But his outfit was a bit funnier than mine...

with a touch of pink and lilac!

and look at his vintage bowling tie bar!

For me, just blue and black with touches of white and gray...

Elegant but perhaps a bit boring?

For once, I wore silver tone jewels...

I'm definitively more a gold lady!

Do you prefer gold or silver?
Do you have to share your love for vintage?

Le temps nous a enfin permis d'aller dénicher des merveilles au marché aux puces!!! Et voici nos tenues pour cette petite balade... A croire que l'on se concerte pour nos tenues.... et pourtant pas du tout... même goût? Télépathie?  En tout cas, le blue l'a emporté.
Les chapeaux à larges bords ont ma préférence, je ne pouvais donc qu'en sortir un de ma collection avec ce beau soleil... et la loi des séries s'est encore vérifiée... 3 autres grands chapeaux 40's trouvés aux puces!
Bref, une belle journée remplie de belles trouvailles passée entre amis, un vrai plaisir!!!
- A bientôt pour plus de trésors vintage! -

Vintage COWGIRL !!!!

We have been wearing clothes from the same era for more than 15 years...

Do I feel bored?

Not at all!!!!

People always have the same clichés about the 50's...

Huge petticoats and polka dots dresses!

But mid century fashion is SO much more!

Between the 40's to the early 60's, you can find so many different styles.

You can be elegant in a suit, 

casual while just wearing jeans...

traditional outfits can be also great (hawaiian, mexican, western, bavarian, sweedish, chineese....),

 novelty bring fun!

I'm trying to experience some new things to create my own style.

I have always love vintage western fashion.

But all those flat front pants are definitively not designed for my curves...

So here is MY version of a vintage cowgirl!

I was inspired by these vintage boots that I found in the Rose Bowl flea market last april.

They are not from the 40's as not square toes,

but I thought they were pretty cool... all handmade!

I paired them with my vintage square dance skirt.

It was so poorly made when I bought it...

fortunatly Debora from The Black Pinafore helped me to restore it!

I chose that vintage tooled purse for another western touch.

I even wore touches of orange... the color I hate the most...

Paired with brown, green and yellow, why not?

Brooch are from one of my favorite brand Belle Lurette (2 talented french girls)!

I think this outfit was a success,

so I believe I will experience a bit more the western wear this year!

It's always so much fun to build an outfit.

I'm happy that my hubby feels the same way!

Men have less accessories than women...

but he always manage to find some fun things to match together!

Like me he likes colorful outfits...

When we look at people in the streets,

we can see only dark colors...


so few people dare to wear bright ones,

what a pity!

Life is SO much fun in TECHNICOLOR!!!!

Do you experience some different styles in vintage?
Have you ever noticed how dark in modern fashion?

Beaucoup de gens pensent que cela doit être ennuyeux de s'habiller dans la même époque depuis des années... mais je ne ressens pas du tout les choses ainsi! La mode milieu XXe est tellement riche si on s'éloigne du cliché robes à pois! Classe en tailleur, à l'aise en jeans, la mode n'était pas encore internationale comme aujourd'hui, on peut trouver l'inspiration à travers le monde: Mexique, Tyrol, Hawaii, Midwest, Asie.... Bref, loin de trouver cela ennuyeux, je prends un grand plaisir à construire mes tenues! Voici mon expérience du jour, ma version de la vintage Cowgirl! Avec mon mari, on fait souvent le constat que la mode moderne est si triste, rien qu'en regardant dans la rue, vous pourrez faire le constat d'une grisaille ambiante... le noir a gagné la bataille! Mais la vie est tellement plus belle en TECHNICOLOR, n'est-ce pas?
