Obviously I was floored when it was suggested that I go to Paris for fashion week..
It’s possible that I have the world’s best job.. For me.. You may not want it, but that’s ok MMGF is a surgeon and I don’t want her job, I don’t like blood at all.
It was an amazing experience. I am grateful.
We went to buy for Spring 13, again, amazing..
I was hardly concerned about how to do my job there, I was, however, concerned about what I would wear.
Always about the outfits.
A have a few shots of some of them.
Isabel Marant leather jacket, Philip Lim sweater, Vince leather jeans, Sergio Rossi booties.
Right before I left, this wicked Maison Martin Margiella coat came in. I wore it with a darling Skaist Taylor dress that you cant see, it’s cute though.
New favourite jeans, R13, Balmain blazer, Kain t-shirt, Maison Martin Margiella fringe booties, and oversize clutch.
It was a fast trip, in and out, 4 days in Paris. I brought 2 suitcases.
My hotel room.
It was a whirlwind of showrooms, starting with Nicholas Kirkwood.
Philip Lim, which I loved. So excited for that brand.
Nina Ricci.. When we walked in Grace Coddington was there. I couldn’t take a picture though… Too tacky..
My sense of decorum disappeared, though, when Valentino, JLo and her boyfriend walked into VBH.
Valentino is impeccable. A little tan, but flawless.. And JLo is a star in every sense of the word.
I fell totally in love with Denis Colomb scarves. I mean, totally in love.
They are the most beautiful and luxurious scarves, all hand made in perfect colours.. Worth every penny. Can’t wait to get them.
And elegant full skirt dresses, like this one at Andrew Gn.
I know, I don’t like the sunglasses either.. They were part of the runway looks.
Rochas also did this amazing dress and jacket that I would wear if I was Kate Bosworth 5 years ago, remember when she wore that amazing red Calvin Klein dress to an Oscar party?..
I have barely scratched the surface of all that we saw.
Saving more for later, plus I have to go watch Rock of Ages for the second time. Have you seen it yet? So so good.
Before I go, note Lucy’s new Paris outfit.
