I'm back with another thrifted look. I admit it, I'm addicted to vintage clothing! I'm lucky to have so many stores in Paris. I go there at least once a week and usually, I don't look for anything particular. All I know is that I never come home empty handed. I've found a lot of cool pieces recently so you can expect new articles very soon.
Fun fact: more than 98% of the people who visit my blog are not French. That's why I write all my articles in English. I think I'll try to shoot a little more often in the most visited places so that you can discover or rediscover Paris while some of you are still in isolation.
For this shoot, I went to the Montmartre neighborhood in the 18 arrondissement of Paris. It's also known as the artist district. Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Maurice Utrillo, Pissarro and Van Gogh just to name a few lived there at some point in their life. The area is full of picturesque little streets, art galleries and intimist restaurants.
I decided to go Montmartre Sacré-coeur Basilica early in the morning to avoid the crowd. For this look, I wanted to create a tonal look with different shades of blue. I found this turquoise printed shirt in the men's section of a huge second-hand store. The particularity of this store is that you have to use a scale to know the price. This top was only 7€. I paired this tropical print top with my go-to mom jeans from Pimkie (French brand). I can't exactly remember the price because I bought it 3 or 4 years ago.
I added another touch of color with my yellow kitten heels from Primark (14€). To finish off this look, I added a white faux leather clutch. I made it a couple years ago when I was really into DIY projects.
