My new favorite belt - an Omaya purchase at 10€

So, while I’ve cooled off on shopping for a bit (translated as saving up for the soldes…), this place opened a block away from my apartment and as you can see, I felt absolutely compelled to drag my ass in there to see what it was all about.

And well, I was not disappointed!! Omaya, recently opened and run by a charming man by the name of Thomas, was a treasure chest of tried and true vintage from the 70’s and 80’s. Thomas carefully sorts through everything leaving his boutique stashed full of the cream of the crop – dresses, shoes, blouses, overalls (yes apparently they are making a comeback), belts, purses, and boots. He gets most of his clothing from Italy and France, and has really taken the time to chose quality over quantity. No out of season H&M peices here…it’s the real stuff. And the prices — can not be beat!!

Omaya Vintage - the treasure chest!!

If you don’t have time to check it out, Omaya also has an online boutique ( that features the new stock and a good portion of what Thomas sells at the shop. They can also be found on Facebook at (
