I bought this vintage '70s dress in Paris; in Montmartre to be exact. At a shop called the Hippy Market. There's more than one Hippy Market in Paris; the one I bought this dress from was at 51, rue Clingancourt. I also visited the Hippy in the Marais. The prices are much higher (twice+ as much!) than those at the regular "Vintage" shops, but I fell in love with the impressionist-like print of this dress - had to have it! I happily wore it about downtown today, full of memories of walking the pretty streets of Paris.
The bracelet seen in the photos above & below depicts butterflies - I bought another bracelet in Paris with butterflies; obviously I am a butterfly kinda girl. This one, though, is by Batucada and is an eco-friendly product. I would have carried these in my shoppe (I used to own an "eco-chic" boutique). My friend Karen bought a necklace from the same company, one with funky colourful circle shapes! I want to get a necklace by this company, too.
The fashion bug has bitten me since being in Paris - I want to surround myself with pretty dresses and chic jackets! I already bought 2 dresses & 2 jackets since coming home (all of which were thrifted, 'cause a girl's gotta be frugal sometimes*!
*emphasis on sometimes
I hope you all won't get tired of all of my Paris-related posts ... I'll try to separate them out with cute pictures of dogs & cats & such so it won't get insufferable! ;)
