i left my heart in paris

Instead of doing a fashion week recap, I wanted to do a mixture of all things Paris. It's the most beautiful city I have ever been to, from the metro, to the shopping, to the amazing crêperies and bakeries. I was in awe of the tall, slender, fashionable people that roamed the streets, cigarette in one hand and shopping bag in the other. I bought my first pair of slouchy leather boots in a random boutique and I have worn them into the ground. And the romance! There's definitely a reason why it's the city of love. Love hangs on every whisper, every macaron eaten, and every picture taken of the Eiffel Tower. So here's an inspiration post of all things Parisian to me: images, locations, the 90th anniversary of Vogue Paris, and of course Paris Fashion Week. Plus a little 'grade ten magic' from when I took my trip to the City of Lights! Wow my hair was long. What are your favourite Parisian moments?

  1. Oh man, I want to go to France so badly. My heart aches every time I think about it.
    I'd have to say I love the architecture and the perceived "antique" feel of Paris. I have a big big big list of places I want to go specifically in France (and Italy).
    Ah I need to learn French.

  7. A Paris by night with my sisters. My biggest dream will be to attend a fashion show there. The Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Chloe shows will be nice.
