Lolita

8 years ago by

There are all sorts of Parisians.
But when I saw Lolita, I couldn’t help but think, waaaait a minute here. A Parisian wearing pink!!! Weird! How interesting is that! Oookay, stop!!! Let’s take a look at this.

After a quick photo stop and a little investigation, it appears that Lolita is a Parisian just come back from a few years in London. Ah! What an exquisite mélange.

Like my friend Sophie said while we spent our Saturday afternoon together, Lolita has it all right:

– The Repetto ballet shoes BUT with a little heel.
– Well tailored pants BUT just a touch too short.
– And the super chic Kelly BUT  worn on the shoulder with an army strap.

So yeah, I’ll let you continue the list. And then of course, OF COURSE, Sophie and I went to go check out the vintage Kellys at Trois Marches (remind me to do a post about this shop, please please please do!) and JUST ADMIRE THEM, if you know what mean…

And then I made sure to check with my mother that she didn’t have a Kelly hiding somewhere in some long lost closet. Question verified (“For the 15th time, my love, NO!!!”) I decided to add the bag right to the top of my wish-list.

Voilà, it’s done! What a relief! Big hugs!
