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!
