The place that captured my heart and started the greatest fashion love affair!
There’s no place like it:
It’s a one-way street to fashion greatness. The
city country, a constant runway to the elitist of fashion mavericks. A certain je ne sais quoi of dressing.
Pfft, this old tee? Please, I’ve had it for years. These printed pants? No big deal! My hair that looks like I’ve slept on it for days? Yep, pretty much, but somehow I still look editorial ready. This perfectly nipped in jacket? Oh, just borrowed from my boyfriend.
The jealousy! Simply stunning! Effortless! My palm was a constant resting spot for my jaw that continued to drop to the floor from fashion amazingness. Tis’ my country of style leaders. Tis’ my one true love.
Sure, the heavy hitters spawn the fashion dreamers palettes: Celine, Chanel, Bruno, Sandro, Iro and of course my role model, Marant. But it’s not necessary for these commanders of chic to dress your back….because a French gal, well style is in her DNA. It’s as simple as the cigarettes she flawlessly smokes with the same chicness of her tousled tees and perfectly cuffed skinnies. French Style…seldom replicated if you are not a national citizen.
It’s these cities, this country, that makes my heart beat faster, makes my Canon click a little quicker, makes my legs run a little faster to capture the shot. Multiple memory cards that need constant refills, imaginations that make me configure new looks, visits to Zara and the masions of my fearless leaders mentioned above to adorn my closet. It’s these feelings that confirm my love affair with one of the great loves of my life. One that makes me feel invinvible and inspired for the next move, next event, next season.….
France, Je t’aime!!
As I said, it's in their DNA!
A denim onezie, a baby and still fabulous!
Printed pants never looked so good..and a suede fringe bag? Heaven!
Style to the strum of my guitar!
Linen tees. gauzy skirts, some K.Jacques...all set for St. Tropez!
The bag, the scarf, the colored skinny, the shoe.....J'adore!
The French spirit with her beau it tow!
The gang's all here. Celine, Marant.....
