A few days ago I took the Thalys in Brussels and headed off to Paris. A friend I hadn’t seen for ages ( I met her during my Erasmus @ Lille) now lives there, so I couldn’t wait to visit her! And lucky me, I also got to see Charlotte. Who lived and worked in Paris for the last 3 months, how cool is that.

SO Paris, is there a city more romantic 🙂 ?  I adore the architecture, the small coffees I can enjoy while watching stylish people passing by, the Eiffel Tower… and ‘les friperies’. Because when I’m in Paris = I have to do some shopping :). As you might know Paris has a lot of cool vintage shops! Some are rather expensive, others are cheap. Check out this map I found when doing some research on where to shop in Paris or this map by Charlotte.

I didn’t have so much shopping time, as I was mostly there to visit my friends. But still managed to visit 3 shops in the price range I was looking for.

1. Kilo-shop in Le Marais:

You actually pay your clothes by weighing them (how cool is that). I liked the store but it was CROWDEDDDD jeeezzz. So I didn’t spend so much time in this shop and sadly didn’t buy anything. I visited this shop with lovely Charlotte and some other friends of her. One friend found a very nice sweater for about 15 euros. Which I though was quiet expensive but overall: nice shop, lot of people, try going there on a workday.

2. Free’ p’starfreepstar1

This one I went to on my own. I liked their selection. It was also crowded but seeing it was a Monday, I could move around easily. Tried out a lot of dresses (OEPS didn’t take any pictures 😦 ) but didn’t buy them.

3. Guerrisol:

Otherwise know as the least expensive shops of them all! Prices ranges from 3 to 25 euros. But you have to look carefully. And go through piles and piles of clothes… I found a nice cardigan and top for: 6 euros. So if you have the time and you can handle some strange smelling clothes from time to time than be sure to visit one of there main shops.

Can’t wait to go back to Paris! But maybe this time I will convince my significant other to go with me and have a nice romantic weekend together in the city of love…

When I got back after 3 days, my little ‘Fluffy’ (cat number 1) and ‘Sisken’ (cat number 2, here below) clearly showed my that I had been gone way to long :p …..

See you soon!
