Some short advice regarding the sales…

 

  1. Look at your wardrobe and write down what you need aka make a list.
  2. Decide on your budget and stick to it. This is the easiest if you only carry cash. Remember to keep it somewhere safe to avoid pickpockets especially if you’re going to a big city.
  3. Splurge on classics-save on the trend items.
  4. Make sure to have a rest budget for small crazy splurges on things you don’t really need, like ear cuffs or a make up palette in neon colors – just in case you want to go embrace the eighties this summer, you never know. This rest budget also includes money for food and drinks aka fun fun fun!  with your sales crazy girlfriends !
  5. Have fun !

It has happened before and I’m sure it will happen again. Read More

How to care for your pretty vintage boho dresses

The first thing I do coming home from a vintage hunt is carefully inspect my new treasures. I look at the fabric of the item and at the tags if there are any. I inspect the buttons and the seams and if they feel loose I give the item to Gilberte, my seamstress of 75 that’s been sewing since she was 7 ( I know it’s craaaaazy), to reinforce them. Read More
