New In: Celine and Paris


Back in June, when I was in Paris (check it here) I got lucky to score a gorgeous Celine scarf in one of the many vintage boutiques which Paris is filled with. The scarf is very special to me not only because it was bought in Paris but because it is Paris, or at least how I always imagine it: beautiful, mysterious, romantic and very difficult to understand unless you're a Parisian. In Woody Allen's film "Midnight in Paris" Owen Wilson would use a magic car to get to Paris of the 1920-ies, I use the vintage Celine scarf to get into Paris of my dreams. 

В конце июня, когда я была в Париже (прочитать пост можно здесь), мне посчастливилось набрести на небольшой магазинчик винтажных вещей и одежды, один из тех, которыми наполнен город. В нем-то я и нашла "героя" этого поста - шелковый шарф Celine. Шарф особенно дорог для меня, не только потому что он куплен в Париже, но и потому что он и есть Париж. Или, по крайней мере, тот Париж, которым я его себе представляю: романтический, загадочный, прекрасный, неподдающийся пониманию город. В фильме Вуди Аллена "Полночь в Париже" Оуен Уилсон использовал волшебную машину, чтобы попасть в Париж 20-ых годов, я же прибегаю к помощи шарфа Celine, чтобы попасть в Париж моей мечты.

  18. Oh, this scarf is so gorgeous! I love Paris so much and it looks perfect on your scarf! I also love this movie and I am never sick of watching it. I am so obsessed about The Lost Generation and I love the flapper girl's style - I guess that's why I adore this movie so much :)

    1. Yes, the movie is absolutely great! I think we all feel sometimes like we belong to different generation. And I so agree with you about the flapper girls. I never get tired of that epoch and trend

  39. Как же я люблю интересные и качественные аксессуары. Воспитываю себя жить по принципу "мне не нужно много вещей, мне нужны лучшие вещи". Такой потрясающий шарф отлично вписывается в этот принцип.
