Cannes je t'taime


Hotter than Hades in Cannes with high humidity. Its 'special' this year evidently. My free paint-for-board deal fell through when I arrived to find no electricity, dead fridge, 55 steps to climb. I moved into HOTEL ATHENÉE across the street..I'm in the 'Marilyn' room...ahem. 
I coulda had the 'Sharon Stone' room but maybe too dark non? Fish are In.
Did I say? Everyone is fabulously Glitzy dressed to the 9s and I love it.
Where is my strapless dress? My metallic sandals?  
To Hell with Matisse, Chagall, Picasso. Culture! The art is in the street here. I think I'll stay put and soak up the glitz. My only vaguely chic thing is a NYC black subway T-shirt + long wrinkly skirt.
We will not discuss what's on my feet ☹️ I definitely want to come back to the May film festival! The glitz volume will be turned up HIGH! Better than any Chanel show.

I think Orange is in.
Be back in Paris to paint Champagne bottles on the weekend and send out all your watercolors. Thanks for reading Parisbreakfasts. Feel free to share. If you'd like a 🍾champagne watercolor or letters from Paris let me know🥂🍾🍒. Thanks for reading Parisbreakfast. Love❤️ from Cannes Carolg 😎

You look great!! Oh So Cannes! The boardwalk..was a sight for sore eyes..the glam walking up and down was mind boggling and yes that film festival is something else..Hélène who lives in Cannes documents it every yr..I much prefer the Marilyn room..Sharon's is way too dark..scary dark.
We didn't stay there and only ogled the Carlton from outside.
La vie is rich rich rich .
One resto..had violinists playing outside .
It was a sight with all the stunning attires.
Can't believe what you arrived to though..55 steps..no electricity..etc..shame on them.I hope you lost your cool;)

What a nightmare!!! Especially during the canicule!! Its true... I'm glad you found another place so close!!!! I hope its not too expensive. Most important is to have an AC in this heat. Luckily its better in Paris now.. only around 25 degrees..you will love it when you are back

Bonnie said...

You are absolutely très chic in your black outfit, but I think you’ve stumbled upon a gem: ‘Vaguely Chic’ would be a fabulous name for a new blog. Stay cool!

Parisbreakfasts said...

The reception guy at a cheap hotel noticed it so now I know now I'm OK
