Visual Diary part 2 : Topanga Canyon and Long beach vintage shopping edition

So far this trip has been pretty magical vintage shopping wize, the amount of vintage shops we visited is insane! I started to develop a pretty nice collection of stuff to bring back with me to Montreal as seen in the last photos of this post. These are two places we visited one up in the mountains in Topanga Canyon, it was so pretty and warm up there, I really wanted to go because I herd about it in a John Phillips song called "Topanga Canyon" in the song it seems so dreamy and perfect so we drove up the winding hills and held our breaths to find this amazing vintage shop called Hidden Treasures. I scored 2 70s cheerleader sweaters my latest obsession and a pink lace jacket.

An other place we really liked was Long beach, we visited this little strip of vintage shops all in a row, kind of like here in Montreal and New York, my favorite shop was this huge one at the end of the street, I don't remember the name but it had so much good stuff, but I did not get anything there, I felt to overwhelmed by all the amazing vintage. St├ęphane got himself a Loretta Lynn lp for a great price.
