ok so i did do a little bit of shopping while on vacation.. but i'd say minimal. :) while i did do a bit of excessive vintage store shopping.. i only came out with 2 items.. the boots and the skirt (shown below).. and while i don't really think i'm a shoe person.. i ended up buying 3 pairs. some fabulous gladiator flats from h&m in london.. and a pair of black canvas sneakers that i just so happened to come upon.. while strolling le marais, i wandered into the bensimon shop.. which after googling back in the states.. happens to be a very coveted french shoe brand that all the local gals wear and it looks like even a few us boutiques are trying to carry them. and here i just thought they were a bit different.
threw some outfits together to show the new purchases:
gladiators from h&m, black leather boots (vintage for 10 euros), pleated skirt(vintage for 5euro), scarf from paris street vendors(i got 3 for me.. excessive, maybe.), bensimon shoes
This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.
