Runway Girly seeks out vintage gems

In the middle of Provence one doesn’t anticipate bumping into vintage Chanel, Balmain & Old World Arabian jewelry. But Runway Girly DID! Highlight of holiday so far, (isn’t that tragic?)

Fell head over sandals with this MAJOR ring….unfortunately the purse was somewhat depleted….. Quel dommage!(However invested in a rather spectacular piece which I’ll show another time!)

Runway Girly in Grasse where the air smells that much sweeter!

Grasse! It is the capital of perfume making…. One doesn’t even need to enter the shops to sense them….every few minutes perfumed water is shot through the air….how fantastic is that?

What other town can boast that?


Sucre avec citron, 2 Euro’s. Perfection on a paper plate!

On my wish list…..but I’m saving my Euro’s for a truly incredible ring shop in St Tropez.

If on the Riveria, hit it with style!

Dress- Topshop
Sunglasses- John Lewis

Runway Girly hits Cannes Beach

When the average temperature doesn’t dip below 38° one doesn’t have a choice….off to the coast for sun, sea & breeze!

The major difference on French beaches is the lack of bikini tops… trend I WON’T be adopting anytime soon. Instead I’ve opted for a scuba inspired design. LOVE IT.

My Current read.
Cannes La Bocca

Bikini- H&M

Hat- Seriously old….I forget.

Sunnies- John Lewisagain. They’re quickly turning into my FAV.

Book- The Passage….a real page turner. A definite recommendation.

Total bargain- Love the YSL arty ring but not the £140 price tag??? Hit up Topshop for only £8…..if only I wasn’t in France! Ou est la Topshop?

Runway Girly heats up in the South of France!

Bonjour mes Amis!!! I’m here in the South of France, where is not hot but BOILING… hard to looks chic when its like 100 degrees!!! Any suggestions???

I’ve just returned from Fayence market where there is everything from veg to art, dresses to epilators on sale….yes epilators, strange!

Discovered a new artist, Dimovski Stephen who does fantastic nudes.

So far my discoveries involve Churros, DELICIOUS doughnut strips COVERED in sugar.
