Thrift Shop Princess

I went to my local thrift shop yesterday. Well actually I went to two of them.
So during my foray into the exciting world of 70's sheath dresses and sparkly tops, I noticed the abundance of geek chic sandals; shoes that are showing up everywhere right now! Only these little woven beauties were priced at $5.00 instead of $60 and upwards!

Unfortunately, I have ginormous feet(9), which when thrifting is like being the incredible hulk in the petite section. But, if you have smaller feet, definitely check out your local thrift shop for some bargain geeky sandals.

Meanwhile, on a bench in Villette Square, Félix Lerbier learns there are more links in his brain than atoms in the universe. Meanwhile, at the Sacré Coeur, the nuns are practising their backhand. The temperature is 24°C, humidity 70%, atmospheric pressure 990 millibars" - Amelie

Style Icon: Claudia Cardinale Part 1

Brigitte Bardot famously said "I already know who's destined to take my place. There can be only one, and one alone. After BB comes CC, no?".

That CC is Claudia Cardinale. Born in Tunisia to Italian parents Claudia became a huge star after winning a beauty pageant which took her to Italy with a movie contract. Only Claudia didn't speak Italian having grown up speaking French. Her initial films were dubbed so as not to confuse the audience with her french accent.
She bacame a huge star when Fellini cast her as the perfect woman.

Claudia would go on to star with Bardot in the Western 'Once Upon a Time in the West'. The two remain friends to this day.
