This dress was absolutely forgotten in the back of my closet. I love rediscovering things I haven't worn in ages. The red jacket is one of my favorite vintage finds, I found it in Paris, in the most wonderful vintage shop I've ever been in, Free P Star. Free P, like most shops in the Marais, is tiny. It has two levels, the bottom one is reached by a tiny winding staircase which is only one person wide, and is draped with belts, coats, and all sorts of goodness. Free P is perfect for vintage leather and coats, and they also have a wide array of flowery dresses and rad 80's dresses. It's also pretty cheap, which is a huge bonus in Paris. I spent hours and hours there over the course of my time in France, I used to walk to the Marais on rainy days and shop, have a noisette and write in one of the cafes nearby.
