Part 11 of my visit to St.Tropez market. I always try to take a photo of my favourite shop as I walk from the bus stop to Place de Lice where the market is held. It is not easy to get a good shot as there is a lot of reflection from the windows. However, it is worth it as I consider that the window displays really reflect the chic “ensembles” suitable for women of our age. I would love to shop here but have only managed a couple of purchases in their sale. The prices are high as they use high-quality fabrics. I just love the simplicity of the shapes and the way they combine colours, not to mention the quirky accessories.
I saw a lot of this mustard yellow colour when I visited Paris, see more here. I have also noticed that these long tassel necklaces are very “au courant” this season.
Stripes are also very popular in France this season. I have spotted several elegant French women wearing similar dresses to the one above.
One of my favourite stalls in the market. I buy these freshwater pearls in various shades of ivory and blush pink and wear about three or four together.
These bags are just so cute!
I hope you enjoyed my mini tour of St.Tropez shops and market. If you missed my previous trip to the market you can read it here.
Oooh I do love your market – some really lovely things that I haven’t seen in Aix!
Love that navy striped shirt! Bet it’s totally unavailable anywhere here? How did you resist all those goodies, Josephine?
The navy shirt, wow !! can you buy anything like it in Britain ?
I will have a look and see if I can find anything similar when I get back to London. Cos might have something.
With difficulty but the prices in that shop are high so I have to wait for the sales. I will be back there tomorrow morning so may well be tempted by another scarf and one of those plaited leather bags.
I am very jealous! All those outfits and colors are so so perfect. Please, can we all come with you????
Confess I have never really gone for yellow but the other day I wore trousers and a top bought under strip lighting. When I got home they were more “yellow” than I had thought. Wore them in London the other weekend and was told I looked “very nice”! I still felt “uncomfortable” in the colour.
Looks good with navy.
Yes yellow does divide opinion it is not my best colour so I stick to accessories a bag or a pair of shoes.
Lovely pictures, Josephine. The striped outfit in the first picture is just divine ! Still not too keen on yellow but I may warm up to it before the end of the summer !
Thank you for sharing the pics of the window displays. As you say, beautiful clothes and colour combos.
I had my first visit to the st. Tropez market in June what a revelation it was. I bought a long acorn colour linen dress that the owner persuaded me to pair with a mustard leather belt. I don’t do belts, at 68 I don’t have a waist anymore but she put it below my waist on an angle and I just love it. I live on the west coast of canada and so enjoy your posts.
I think I know which stall where you bought your linen dress. It sounds lovely.
Oh how i love your posts from St Tropez ! I think if i were you, i’d have to drag myself home ! I’d also want to throw out my wardrobe and start again, a la Francaise !
We’ve been trying to go to St Tropez for about 15 years, but because of the traffic have never managed it. Since I discovered your blog (the first blog I ever read) and you mentioned the market we have tried again to go either Tuesday or Saturday, but as we no longer hire a car we have to go by ferry or train/bus. Still no joy – sea too choppy for a pleasant journey from Cannes, too early in the season for the trips to have started and this year the added rail strike. I think there’s a conspiracy!
I’ve never been really impressed by French markets, always preferring the Itallian ones, but your reports of the ST market make me drool, and the shop – well what can I say. Carry on reporting.
I agree the train strikes have been a nuisance this year. Normally it should be easy to get a train from Cannes to San Raphael and then a bus into St. Tropez. I do that journey quite often from Nice airport.
I went back to the market last Tuesday and it is getting a bit too hot and crowded for my liking. I prefer earlier in the season or later in September/October.
Hope you get there one day as it is worth it.
I may have to consider a trip to St Tropez. While I don’t mind traveling alone, it would be nice to have someone with me. Brenda
I agree Brenda it is more fun in the market with a friend. However I still often go on my own and still find it interesting.
