Sandro is one of those now iconic Parisian brands. Founded in 1984, the brand now has over 332 shops in 13 countries. As with most Parisian brands, the quality and impeccable design come with a hefty price tag. But! As with most Parisian brands, you can find some really good current gems in the vintage stores around the city. I stumbled across this one at a shop right near my house last semester.
The blouse does have more color than I typically wear, but it’s done in a very subtle way.The black found in the pattern anchors the shirt in an outfit that otherwise is very neutral.
The purse also came from my friendly neighborhood vintage store. It’s a limited edition Vanessa Bruno purse that they sold for a criminally low price. Vintage is truly the best way to keep your style fresh while keeping in check with whatever your budget may be. I have a little savings jar full of coins that I take when I go in, and I usually walk out with something amazing.
I topped the whole look off with a lil hat from a hat booth in the Piazza San Marco of Venice.
