Céline & Charles Jourdan (vintage gifts)

My favourite aunt recently made my day; she decided to give me some of her things she treasured for years and years and years! One of them is a vintage Céline foulard that I absolutely positively ADORE.
I'm quite a big fan of silk foulards to make an outfit complete,
and this navy blue original Céline is just perfect.

And it just so happens to match with something else she gave to me as a present ; a pair of vintage Charles Jourdan shoes. Charles Jourdan was a French designer of women's shoes quite notorious in the late fifties. I fell in love right away sort to speak. And bonus points : they don't have a stiletto heel which allows me to walk in them all day. I say WIN.
