Shopping in Paris

After nearly two weeks, I could finally take pictures of the things I bought in Paris.

I purchased the Brassaï book on impulse. I had previously seen -and loved- a few of his pictures at the Pompidou, and it only cost 10€ so, it had to be mine. As well as the The Beatles vinyl, even though I have most songs on CD.

The Ferragamo's were on my winter wishlist. The shoes were a bit stiff at first, but they worth the initial pain. I also bought some Princess Tam-Tam underwear and a striped t-shirt.


My eyes literally glittered when I saw this Charles Anastase dress hanging on a rack. I had spent the previous months to the trip coveting it at Browns. However, I waited a few days before I decided I was going to get it and when I came back it wasn't there (!).

I was ready to kick myself, when my friend advised me to ask the shop assistant. I breathed a sign of relief when she kindly told me they had put somewhere else.

omg! you bought a beautiful pair of shoes! i so wanted to get my hands on the varina flats- but still even on sale they costed about 300euros that i didn't have at the time.
those must be the vara ones right?
amazing. what can one say? classic salvatore!! :D :D

Allure said...

héloïse j: yes, those are the Vara shoes. They were like 200€. I don't get why they varina are more expensive, though.

Kat said...

the dress ist just beautiful!

Rollergirl said...

So, what is the difference between Varina and Vara? LOVE the Charles Anastase and the breton tee (where was that from?). I love taking photos of my stuff after a big spree too!

Allure said...

The varina is flat, while the vara has a 1.5 " heel.

The tee is from H&M.
