Here is part deux of my adventures in Paris; it includes window displays, the Catacombs (which were my favorite!), a little bit of Napoleon history, an amazing Haute Couture exhibition, and Disneyland, of course! 😉
The Lion in Monte Carlo will be coming next…
Here it is as promised: a little taste of my time in Paris! The photos include the Louvre, monuments, and stores around the city. Tomorrow I will post the second part! Enjoy! 😉
Hello again everyone! I know I’ve been missing for a really long time, but I am back! I am finally home and enjoying the California sun that I missed so much! I wanted to post more often in Paris but Lesage had me working long hours every day! For my first post back, I wanted to share a little of my experience at Ecole Lesage…
Above are some photos that summarize what I worked on and what I experienced at Lesage. It was amazing, but it was a real eye-opener and tougher than I thought. It required a lot of attention to detail and a lot of patience. Now I know how serious and stressful the world of Haute Couture can be! I can only imagine how it must feel for them to work on a Chanel collection; under a time limit and under so much pressure! There is still so much to learn and I would definitely go back, but for now I’ll take what I learned and see what I can create! 😉
Stay tuned…I will be posting photos of my adventures in Paris, Monte Carlo, and Rome soon!
Last weekend I spent the afternoon at the charming Montmartre hill. After many gloomy days in Paris, it was refreshing to see a bright, beautiful blue sky. What I love about Montmartre is that it feels so different from the rest of Paris; it feels like a small village, separate from the rest of the world, and I can see why many of the great artists gathered there. And of course, there’s the beautiful Basilique Sacre Coeur; which unfortunately photos aren’t allowed inside, but I did get a photo of the entrance doors where there were lions. 😉 My favorite photo of all is the last one; I captured the breathtaking view of Paris at sunset, and you can see a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower. 🙂 As for me, I did some mixing and matching with the colors, prints, and fabrics for this look. I just got this Boucle Moto jacket from Zara and I love how versatile it is! It’s not very warm, but it’s easy to layer just as I did.
What I Wore:
ZARA Boucle Moto Jacket; JOE’S Teal Velvet Pants; TORY BURCH Gold Booties; ZARA Black Leather Top; LAILA & SAVANNAH Striped Blouse; GALERIES LAFAYETTE Heart Print Scarf; KENNETH JAY LANE necklace; FOREVER 21 Jewel Bracelet; LAUREN RALPH LAUREN Black Leather Gloves
Last weekend I visited the extravagant Chateau de Versailles. I haven’t had a chance to post because I’ve been busy with homework but Voila! If there’s one thing you should know about me is that I’m obsessed with castles and palaces. Of course, I always dreamed of living in one 😉 but, what I love the most is the history in them. I am more of a fan of gothic and medieval castles but what I love about Versailles is the intricate detailing and all the gold! I can only imagine what Marie Antoinette must’ve felt living in all that splendour. For this post, I decided I wanted to focus more on the palace rather than my look, so I wore all black. After all, I don’t think there is any outfit that can outshine Versailles! 😉
What I Wore:
My mom’s vintage fur jacket; ZARA black leather top; ZARA black baroque jeans; ZARA ivory embellished scarf; TORY BURCH gold boots; ZARA necklace; LAUREN RALPH LAUREN leather gloves; JAMIN PUECH bag
This is my first outfit post in Paris! 🙂 I finally received my camera charger and battery so I will finally start sharing my adventures in this magical city!
I wanted to start my first Paris outfit post in the area around my apartment so I can introduce you to my surroundings. Rue Marie Stuart is a small street just outside of my apartment building that leads to the famous Rue Montorgueil. I was so happy when I discovered that I’m staying so close to it because it is lined with bread, cheese, butcher, wine, and flower shops; I’ll have everything I need to feel right at home! The thing I’m bummed about is the weather. I know I have complained before about it not being cold at home, but I really miss California weather right now, I haven’t even seen the sun since I left home. I do enjoy wearing fur and gloves though. 😉 On another note, I get to be here during the sales which are madness, just like Black Friday; but I scored these awesome boots that I’m wearing in this post! 😉 Stay tuned for my next post; I will share my experience at Chateau de Versailles…
What I Wore:
H&M Faux Fur Coat; ZARA Waxed Brown Jeans; FOREVER 21 print scarf; EDEN Black Patent Leather Wingtip Boots; LAUREN RALPH LAUREN Leather Gloves; JUICY COUTURE necklace; ZARA blouse
