V.I.P. (Very Important Parisian) Profile: Jeanne Suica

Ever wonder how Parisiennes get that cosmopolitan look? American-born, Paris-based Jeanne Suica knows.

That’s why she’s been the go-to girl for designer and vintage fashion for the past 15 years.

(And let’s face it, the woman is a walking advertisement for her services. Who wouldn’t want to look as sleek and soignée as Jeanne?)

If you have too many clothes that just don't fit your lifestyle, have inherited your grandmother's collection of couture, or are moving and need to downsize your wardrobe (tiny Parisian closets, anyone?), Jeanne can help!

Jeanne Suica Vintage and Modern Collectable Clothing can help you get the best price for your vintage and designer clothing accessories and fashion-related items. She works with a wide range of clients worldwide and also collaborates with a major auction house in valuating and searching for upcoming auctions. Based in Paris, she travels frequently for personal appointments to London and New York and also does valuations via email for clients worldwide.

I've got to get in on the vintage look! Jeanne (and, oui, Carrie Bradshaw) is certainly inspiration enough...

@Anonymous Merci! There's more good stuff to come!

@Sweet Freak I love vintage shopping in NYC -- fantastic deals! Paris is great, but I always zoom in on the 3000 € Kelly bag...too rich for La Mom's blood.
