Whilst I was in Paris I was at the Porte de Clignancourt market. Officially it is called Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, but known to everyone as Les Puces (The Fleas). I spotted these amazing old necklaces, which would look good in my collection.

Here are some of the vintage stores that I found in the Le Marais area in Paris. I found two cool jackets in Freep’star – one of them I showed earlier. The King of Frip didn’t have much to offer the day I was there, however Coiffeur Vintage had lots of pretty cheap clothes and I enjoyed a good chat with the owner.

Here is the first pictures from my trip to Paris. In the last picture you can see my friend Julie (on the right side) and her two roommates.

Paris is wonderful. Yesterday when I arrived Julie came to pick me up at Gare Du Nord station. In the evening we went to see Sacré Cæur and Moulin Rouge by night, which was very beautiful. A nice little walk through Montmartre was a good start on my little holiday away from London. Now I will walk through the city dicovering it again. xxx

I am going to Paris today to visit my friend Julie and to take some pictures for the blog. I am taking the Eurostar train from Kings Cross station arriving at Gare Du Nord this evening. I can’t wait to experience the city again. Last time I was in Paris was in 2006, where I lived there for two months working as a model. I kind of know the city, but would still love to have some tips of what is a MUST see right now? I look forward to hearing from you!
