When you go into a vintage boutique, you have to follow one rule: take the time you need.
At first glance, you will notice especially the accessories put on the value, some nice handbag, eccentric sunglasses or an evening dress on a mannequin, but your chances of finding the right thing, what exactly does for you, increase significantly after at least a quarter of an hour spent in the store.
Touch, look, move, try it.
And for me it was like this with this Yves Saint Laurent trench coat found at 15 euros in a vintage shop in Paris.
Once it was second-hand clothes, now it’s vintage ;)
 
 
 
Quando entrate in una boutique di vintage, dovete seguire una sola regola: prendete il tempo che vi serve.
A prima vista, noterete soprattutto gli accessori messi in valore, qualche bella borsetta, degli occhiali da sole eccentrici o un vestito da sera su un manichino, ma le vostre probabilità di trovare la cosa giusta, quella che proprio fa per voi, aumentano sensibilmente dopo almeno un quarto d’ora passato in negozio.
Toccate, cercate, spostate, provate.
E per me è stato cosi con questo trench di Yves Saint Laurent trovato a 15 euro in un negozio vintage di Parigi.
Una volta si parlava di abiti usati, oggi si dice vintage ;)
I wear:
Yves Saint Laurent trench coat – soprabito
Gap sweater – maglione
Stefanel skirt – gonna
Reebok sneakers (bought here)
Chanel boy bag – borsa
Dior tribal earring – orecchino

    Nei negozi vintage si fanno sempre grandi affari e la qualità è tutta un’altra cosa rispetto a quella dei vari zara, h&m e company! Molto bello il tuo look :)

    Ma cosa mi dici, un acquisto splendido e super economico, peccato che nella mia città il vintage non esiste, esiste solo il vecchio..

    I totally love this look. Yes it’s simple, yet so effortlessly chic and fashionable. I’m a total fan of camel coat (although it’s impossible for me to wear it here), you look simply amazing.
