A child of the 90s I grew up with this fantasy of Paris I found in movies. The hotel suite that perfectly frames the Eiffel Tower in its windows, bouquets of flowers and white walled gardens where fluffy white cats come to lay in the sun before evenings in little chic black dresses and dinners where each course comes with a wine pairing. I found that glamorous Paris I so long ago dreamed about at Le Bristol Hotel. I have been lucky enough to find myself in Paris quite often, and from time to
(Chloé embroidered cutout dress, Drew bag, and blazer, Balenciaga boots) Spending last weekend in Paris was a little bit of a last minute decision but I’m so glad to have made it out! I melodramatically brought all my heavy outerwear and pocket warmers and we ended up luxuriating in LA-style March warmth. Which allowed me to wear this stunning dress from Chloé without a jacket for most of Sunday which was cool because it was a six month long dream of mine come true to have it on my body.
Eating may be a mere biological act of survival, yet the preparation of food is an important cultural art and tradition. Nobody understands this better than the French (what with their foie gras and their macarons!), and thus the influence of French cooking can be found in all corners of the world. We saw it in Vietnam, where the French established a colony in the 1800s and disseminated not only a rich abundance of new vegetables, but also set up coffee plantations (Vietnam is today the
Marché aux puces is French for flea market ~ and the biggest and most famous flea market in Paris is Le Marché aux puces de Saint-Ouen. How do I even begin to describe St.-Ouen?! Well, it’s a labyrinth. You may think that term could apply to any outdoor market of its kind, but even the souk in Marrakech cannot compare to the scale and serpentine navigation of this unbeatable bazaar. It sets the standard. When first one enters the mouth of the market, the initial sellers’ selections
A couple newer things – this Zara blanket coat was sometimes such an item of comfort during my trip to Paris and other times a total liability cause I was trying to force it when it was still basically heat waving in which case I used it as a shield from the sun. So actually not so bad. I love its easy sloppy shape. Paired with laceless combat boots because I’m developing a Zanotti fetish, it would appear.

I am completely obsessed with this black tulle skirt from Sachin & Babi. Kinda felt like a modern day princess and not the frilly kind. It’s kind of refreshing to see a tulle skirt other than pink and when I first saw this skirt I knew I wanted to wear it in Paris. Since this… Read More SOURCE: Song of Style - Read entire story here.
(Zara mohair knit, Vanessa Bruno lace skirt, Balenciaga boots, Louis Vuitton Vivienne bag, Ray-ban sunglasses) From beautiful summery Paris last week – I went lace skirt rampaging throughout the city and fell in love with this olive silk Vanessa Bruno one upon sight from across the street from her boutique in Le Marais. I wore it with the actual last item I threw in my bags when I was getting ready to leave LA – so meant to be. The post going green appeared first on
First day of Paris Fashion Week for me started with Anthony Vaccarello’s show which was filled with his signature sexy asymmetrical pieces with a nautical twist. I put together a last minute outfit since I didn’t know what the weather in Paris was going to be like which resulted in this! Since I was mixing… Read More SOURCE: Song of Style - Read entire story here.
