Good old fashioned...


Looking for vintage wear? Then be sure to stop by this boutique by Gabrielle Geppert, located at 31 galerie Montpensier, in the 1st arrondissement. Classic items from the 1960’s and ‘70’s, she has everything, all in mint condition. Selected for its quality and originality and the shop is even open on Sundays...

  1. It might be sold in a vintage shop, but it would be fun to wear. The necklace, bodice and collar are a beautiful shade. You photographed this is a way that makes me want to wear it. Have a good week-end. Greetings from St. Paul, MN!

  2. "Classics from the 70's?" Damn, this doesn't make us feel any younger, does it?! ;)

    (This little fur jacket, however, is gorgeous!)

  5. Eric, I was just wondering, what kind of camera do you have? (type and model)

  7. Take off the fur and the sleeves and we can call it a moire bustier fit for Madonna. LOL

    Love the colours of the photo. Doesn't qualify for my Eric's Album though.

  9. Haha.. call me a silly billy. But when I saw it, I thought I saw a poddle that was dyed yellow. :-p

  10. It may be vintage but it looks very "now." Gotta love that yellow! And yes, it's a bit of a poodle...:)

  11. Ah paris, la mode...toujours au top ;o) j'imagine tres bien dans une vitrine d'une vieille boutique de haute couture dans une galerie du temps passé.


    Ah Paris, fashion… always with the top ;O) I imagine very well in a window of an old shop of haute couture in a gallery of last time.

  12. It's a very stylish jacket. And in order to re-surface the controversy: Parisian girls must be QUITE thin to use it! LOL.

  15. I'm not a "yellow" fan, but this outfit is fab! Now the big question, what kind of fur is it? Canary?

  19. Colour apart, this cloth looks like from the 19 century rather than from the 70ies.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Is is made of Canary dyed rabbit? Is the necklace made of strung butterflies? I can't tell.

  21. Ooops! Typo Should read Is it not Is is.

  22. Ooooh...fashion envy boiling in my veins!

    You know what....only a Parisian woman could pull that off.Women from my country would just look like they were trying too hard or that they were wearing their mama's dress up clothes. Parisian girls can pull off a paper bag and still look smokin' hot!

    Is that denim jeans on the bottom?

  23. >>You know what....only a Parisian woman could pull that off.>>

    I think you give the myth of Parisian women too much credit. There are many women here who could, and do, pull off these looks daily. (But they all look like they need a pork chop.)

  24. Ujima said, "But they all look like they need a pork chop."

    Very funny!! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I agree with you Ujima, all the more a lot of parisian women couldn't put this cloth on.
    The myth is in the shop window.

  26. Generally I hate yellow, but this I love! Too bad I wouldn't be able to find something that cute in my size...at least something that would look decent in my size! If only I had something like this for the party I'm going to tonight!

  27. god I want that jacket. its so scrummy! so paris!

  28. I enjoyed browsing your photos and reading your posts, Eric. I recently began sharing some shots of my part of the world, the Araknsas Ozarks (yep, I'm a hillbilly).

    Stop by and visit!

    Cheers!

  29. Whatever the fabric, fur, color, nationality of the wearer, buzzgirl, vous etre vrai: this is hot. I'm in love.

    Pygmalion?

  30. I think I saw this on the streets of Delta the other day.......Not!

  31. I'll need a few more sessions at the gym first! Then I'm goign to put it on and SWOOSH in to Johnny Depp's bar in Paris.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Um...for future reference (not that I'm a stalker or anything...ahem...lol) what is the name of his bar?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Susan...you see...I'm watching you! Yeah Sally, where is Johnny Depp's bar in Paris? Of course, this has nothing to do with this fab photo, but guess anyone could wear it if you stayed long enough at Depp's dive.

  34. Michael - it's called Man Ray and is at 34 rue Marbeuf in the 8th. Wamt to go for adrink there next time I get to Paris? Sean Penn and John Malkovich are co-owners.

  35. Sally sure! I know about Manray but didn't know it was Depp's place. Meet you there for a few martinis when you're in town.

    Oh, Susan too, of course!

  36. this picture was truly unique... it can show us the difference between the cultures of France and the cultures of the US through just ou taste in clothing and our preferance of style.

    ReplyDelete
  37. what taste? This is hideous. Quit fawning over it....when not one of you would ever wear something as tacky as this!

  38. I would totally frame this pic and put it in my boudoire. Sorry if I spelled that wrong. It sounded much more sophisticated with my wreched,fake French accent.
    Loving it! Wish I could squeeze into it - I eat too many porkchops Ujima but I do know what you mean about some gals in Paris.
