An ABANDONED place...

That was a flea markets sunday...

but I must say that there are less and less interesting items in small villages ones.

Most of people are now selling children clothes and modern plastic stuff...

That kind of flea markets make me depressed!

But we managed to find a few things for cheap despite that...

While returning home,

we found this abandoned place...

even more abandoned because french soccer team was playing for the Euro at that time...

People are really becoming crazy in Europe because of soccer!

Sylvain and I HATE soccer, so we really don't understand all that crazyness...

But it was not a bad thing, we could be alone for a photo shoot!

A lot of people asked my on that day if I was wearing a traditional outfit...

No, not really...

My 50's novelty skirt was mexican inspired...

My vintage top is probably from Hungary...

My new Miss L Fire sandals also had a mexican flair...

Sales have just started in France so they were my present... to me!

As summer came and left...

Sylvain could go back to wearing a tie!

This 40's one has a really great design.

A sweater is still needed even with some sun...

So I could wear one more time my Emmy design one,

it can really match a lot of outfits!

I paired it with a cute Toucan from Erstwilder.

My hubby really likes this kind of industrial places.

He is fed up of nature on our pictures...

not easy to find a timeless background!

I don't like so much this kind of decrepit places...

but I must say that they can provide nice pictures.

A few words about my skirt...

it was in really bad shape when I bought it.

Probably made by a novice....

Pleats were unequal, waist badly sew and buttons were awfull.
But after some cares, it is breathless!

I bought those vintage salamander buttons in a thrift store,
they were made for that skirt!!!

Can you believe that I found the perfect matching bangles in a flea market on the same day?

Do you like this kind of background?
Do you like soccer and are you following Euro?

Ce fût un dimanche rempli de marchés aux puces... mais c'est de plus en plus difficiles de faire des affaires dans les vides greniers de villages... vêtements d'enfants, plastiques cheap à gogo, mais où sont les greniers bien remplis de nos grands-mères??? En retournant à la maison, nous sommes tombés sur cet endroit oublié... parfaitement déserté... probablement aussi parce que la France jouait son 8ème de finale pour l'Euro au même moment... Sylvain et moi détestons le foot, il est donc difficile pour nous de comprendre les réactions excessives des fans... mais bon, cela nous a permis de faire une petite séance photo en toute tranquillité! L'été étant parti aussi vite qu'arrivé, Sylvain a pu à nouveau arborer une belle cravate... et pour moi, un mixe de différents horizons qui m'a valu bien des questions!
- Bonnes vacances pour ceux qui y sont! -

Visit to the ZOO!!!

Summer suddently arrived 2 days ago...

almost 20°C more than last week!

Crazy hot day, but of course we wanted to enjoy this day,

even more because it's was a day off for me!

We chose to spend the day in zoo with friends!

Sylvain and I love animals so much!!!

Look at those cute damans!

It was a really pleasant day,

all animals had big enclosures with a lot of trees.

We fell in love with this little cute walabi!

You can feed some animals with special pop corn bought at the zoo.

But what to wear on a crazy hot day like this?

A lot of vintage beginner ask me: 

"But do you wear vintage in hot summer?"

My answer is a big yes!

I like to wear cotton wrap dresses in this kind of weather.

They are simple, pretty and light!

And you can add some fun accessories to make the outfit more appealling!

A large hat to protect my white skin from the sun...

Comfy shoes to walk all day long...

but even with them my feet hurt badly at the end of the day...

Cute vintage dices bracelet!

For this zoo day, I pick up this rakoon brooch from Erstwilder.

And you must have notice my cute new little friend!

I introduce you to Tobby my new wicker purse.

It was my birthday present 2 weeks ago.

No cheap but even Sylvain had adopted him!!!

That kind of crazy hot weather is also a problem for my husband.

He cannot wear ties!!!!!

So he must find fun in other pieces than 40's ties...

And what is funnier than 2 tones pants!!!

They are original from the 50's.

They were made to play golf.

And he managed to find the perfect matching colors shirt!!!

What do you wear on hot weather?
Do you like to visit zoo?

L'été est arrivé (et déjà reparti...) sans prévenir il y a 2 jours avec pas moins de 20° de plus que la semaine dernière!!! Nous en avons profiter pour passer une journée au zoo, Sylvain et moi sommes des fans d'animaux. Beaucoup pensent que porter du vintage par des températures pareilles est impossible, mais non, il faut juste choisir la bonne tenue! J'adore porter pour ces jours de canicule des robes porte feuille, jolies, simples et légères, elles sont idéales! Quelques accessoires bien choisis et on peut être élégantes et à l'aise. Vous avez certainement noté mon nouveau compagnon, j'ai reçu Tobby, mon nouveau sac pour mon anniversaire il y a 2 semaines... j'en suis amoureuse... et Sylvain l'a aussi adopté! Pour mon homme, pas de cravates vintage par des chaleurs pareilles... sa touche fun du jour fût donc ce pantalon bi-couleurs original des 50's!
