Dreaming Of... Vintage Couture

My sweet friend Heidi gave me the loveliest book as a hostess gift...


Jessica Clayton's guide to vintage fashion in Paris is filled with gorgeous photos and information about the best the city has to offer. It has me dreaming of going on a spree...


From Didier Ludot to the best flea market vendors...


...favorite spots from our last trip...


...and new favorites to save for next time...


And the sweetest little hand-drawn maps to show you the way.

 

Who wants to go shopping? What would you be searching for on a Parisian vintage treasure hunt?

  1. What a treat to shop in Paris. I bet their vintage wares are the best in the world. I've shopped the flea market for furniture, but have never been there when the dollar was strong enough to seriously hunt down clothes.
    Best,
