Paris - Vintage Shopping

So, I did manage to do a little bit of vintage shopping when I was in Paris...after eating a few Nutella Waffles of course.

I researched a lot online before the trip, and I found that the Cherry Blossom Girl suggested some great stores that were only a block away from each other.

They had great stuff but it was all extremely overwhelming. The stores were tres petit, as the french say, and they were also very crowded.

The Euro to the Dollar isnt great, but I still got some great deals in these stores. They had bags for 5 euro (about $7) and scarves for 1 Euro ($1.40 ish). Other things were priced differently but all good deals. Unfortunately, I was in a bit of a rush so I wasn't able to dig around to my best ability, but I did pick up a few things.The sweater and bag in the photos above were two of my finds. The sweater is from the 80s, it has shoulder pads and a great sailor look, with ships on the buttons. The bag has a Chanel feel, and I love it. I bought it as a gift for my best friend though... I might beg her to borrow it.. =D
