Vintage shopping in Paris

Helloo!! As you all know I went to Paris on Thursday with my lovely friend Charlotte. We have been meaning to go there for about two years now and finally decided to go and hit all the vintage shops we could find, and I turns out we found a lot more than we thought we would!

I went to Paris two years ago with my uni and we were allowed to venture out and do what we want and me and my friends found two completely amazing vintage shops which I told Charlotte about when I got back. We decided we would go and I'd show her these amazing shops, although I have to say I was a bit worried that they wouldn't be there anymore considering it was two years ago! However, as we were strolling around the streets looking for the right street name we finally found them both and they have not changed one single bit!! I was so, so happy and the shops did not fail us! We bought so much, as I am about to show you, because they just have so many amazing vintage clothes! We also found loads of vintage shops along the way too, but these particular two were the best.

Anyway, enough of my rambling and reminiscing of Paris (yes, I have got the Paris blues already!!), here is what I bought, and I apologise now for the horrible image quality!

Pretty pink cardigan with lovely silver buttons.
10 Euros.

 Levi's shorts which fit perfectly!
10 Euros.

 Some of you may think this is horrible, but I just love the print so I am going to completely re-work this dress as the low waist is really unflattering and it is too big for me anyway.
10 Euros.

 I really love the material and print here but I'm not sure whether to keep this as a maxi skirt or take it up or even make it into shorts. What do you lovelies think?
A bargain 5 Euros!

Love this scarf and for 1 Euro it was a must have!

 This looks a bit funny layed out but when it is on it looks like a little 1950's cape.
1 Euro!

These are mens shorts I think but I'm going to take them in and up and hopefully they will look ok.
1 Euro.
 
 Pretty blue's skirt which I will be taking up and in.
1 Euro.

 I am in love with this blue print and lace collar blouse and for 1 Euro I had to buy it!

 These shorts almost fit perfectly but I've had to take them in half an inch each side. I'm wearing them today so keep a look out for my outfit post later on tonight :)
1 Euro.

 Loving the tartan pattern lately and needed a bit of red in my wardrobe so this skirt was perfect! It needs taking it quite a bit but I think I'll keep the length for more of a pencil skirt look.
5 Euros.

Mine and Charlottes first day of vintage shopping! Haha!

This was the best vintage shop which I first experienced two years ago called 'Free 'P' Star'. If you ever go to Paris you have to visit and if you need the address just email me :)
