Hey! It’s been awhile since I posted an outfit update, but there’s a good reason for it! I’ve been getting things ready & preparing to open my Depop shop Oh Lover Vintage again. I’ve just added a few pieces to it, so check it out!! When spring hits so do all the flea markets here in France.
These quintessentially French Flea Markets are called Vide Greniers which means ‘Cleaning out the attic’!! Can you imagine all of the amazing things that are hidden in the attics of French homes? You are right if your imagination goes wild! Cruising through some of the best assortment of vintage is my kind of thing, and I always come back home with my arms full. Over the weekend I decided I was going to hit a few to search for some awesome stock for my shop, and yet again I wasn’t disappointed!
My love and understanding of vintage clothing goes back to my youth. I started as a teenager working in a ton of vintage stores all over London including Camden, Notting Hill & also Stockholm, Sweden. My favorite thing to do is to rummage through piles of old clothes to find the perfect items! Its such a thrill!!
I will do a blog post very soon for you to help you know what to look for when going to flea markets or car boot sales.
This red vintage varsity jacket with the initials A.C for American Collage is one of the pieces I came across on my treasure hunt!! If you follow me on Instagram I told you there was a secret to this jacket… Well the secret is that I paid just 3Euro for it!! I know I was shocked too!
I paired the jacket with a simple black turtle neck and some ripped Levis denim shorts. Its still not hot enough to wear just the shorts so fishnets (as always) was just the thing!
