call me 'sylvia'

Anyone that knows me knows that I love vintage shit.  In college I used to frequent Goodwills and hunt for the gaudiest sequin tops and oversized flannels.  Probably the highlight of my thrifting days was when I found this oversized floral muumuu and cut it into a little Balenciaga SS08-esque slip dress.  

When I read about Dolly Python, a treasure trove of odd antiques and one-of-a-kind vintage showpieces, I knew I'd love it.  I found this gem of a top - a mechanic's shirt that once belonged to a "Sylvia" - hidden in Dolly Python's amazing racks.  I knew it would be a fun piece to wear around Paris's Left Bank, home to all of the coolest artists, while we hit up Paris's best vintage shops.  They were amazing!!!  I got some iconic Chanel, the coolest Isabel Marant boots, and lots of other stuff I'll debut in some of our upcoming posts!
