You love classic silhouettes and beautifully tailored clothes.
You tend to gravitate towards Celine and Chloe with The Row, Saint Laurent and maybe Maison Marigiela thrown into the mix. You desire a boutique experience, escaping the crowds while leisurely trying on everything that calls to your sophisticated style. Don’t let the word “vintage” deter you from ringing the bell and stepping into Odetta Vintage. You have found your place in Paris.
What to buy?
Build an elegant Parisian designer wardrobe from a selection of one of a kind luxury vintage pieces and new items from last seasons' lineup like Celine or Chloe. Looking for the classics made of beautiful fabrics? It’s here. Color is not their strength. Think black, white, men’s shirt blues, grey, and beige.

Good to know:
If Odetta is on your list to visit, plan accordingly. The boutique opens at 2:30 PM and not a minute earlier. Don’t expect bargain prices - although you will pay less than retail, even during the annual sales.
Odetta Vintage is located off a side street in the Marais. One day is never enough to discover the pre-loved gems in this bustling neighborhood. If you crave culture begin at the Picasso Museum before you start shopping. Fragments, a hipster coffeehouse makes a delicious start to the day too. For a classic French meal don’t miss Chez Janou just down the street. Make a reservation. Drink wine. Be French. Afterward, stroll around boulevard Beaumarchais and Place des Vosges. Enjoy the historical architecture and more vintage shopping all within a 5-10 minute walk. At some point you need a cocktail. A real one because you’re a lady and going to any b-a-r is not today's theme. Finish On The Top at National Hotel des Arts et Métiers. It’s the holy grail of rooftop bars. Go early. Thank me later.
