You Will Always Have Paris.

1 Dec

In February of 2005, I went to Paris to work Fashion Week at the WHO’S NEXT show. I had studied French from 7th grade through college so I was beyond ecstatic to be able to travel to the City of Light.

Most of my time was spent at Le Porte de Versailles where the shows were being held but I did venture out to see La Tour Eiffel, Brasserie Lipp, Café de Flore, Sacré-Coeur, La Seine & Notre Dame to name a few. To be honest, my favorite part was a two hour stroll looking for a specific restaurant I could never find. Paris was the most peaceful city I have ever visited. So still and quiet yet so rich in culture.

I can still remember thinking how lucky I was to be a relatively small town girl, working for a Danish fashion designer flying on business from Copenhagen to Paris. Good times, great memories.

Paris was perfect, or parfait as they say en Français.

I woke up each morning, grabbed le petit déjeuner on my way to the Métro, worked the show and then finished the evening eating oysters from Provence and drinking delicious wine I will never remember the name of.

In retrospect,  I would have loved to JUST be a tourist but I got the opportunity to live the culture  instead of just visit it. For that, I will be eternally grateful.

Below are some amazing vintage Parisian finds from Etsy meant to remind you of one of the most amazing cities in the world.
