Fashionista PFW

Yesterday I took a break from arm-wrestling the September Paris Map to go Uptown…yes I know it’s 30 Septembre, but I’ve been arm wrestling 🤼‍♀️ all week with Ines

It’s PWF (Paris Fashion Week). I hate missing out on what’s going on. Dior is showing bubble skirts evidently…

Frida Kahlo, beyond appearances, Palais Galliera


Palais Galliera celebrates Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), one of the most recognized and influential artists of the 20th century. I was going to post on Frida on Thursday. Then I fell down the rabbit hole of Paris chocolates and fashion windows. 

The Kahlo exhibition is the first in Paris to focus more on her image and clothing collections and their influence than her paintings. It’s a way to understand how she built an identity by how she presented herself and represented herself in her own paintings.

Fall Leché-Vitrine

Do you like to lechĂ©-vitrines/windowshop when in Paris? Last night I went to see some Fall windows.
Is Printemps still in love with Squid Green or maybe that’s their brand color?

Journees du Européennes Patrimoine


This past weekend was the annual big event in France in September. Journees du Europeanees Patrimoine,
when many private and public institutions, including the Elysées Palais (you must reserve way in advance for the Elysees) open their doors to public viewing.
On Sunday I went to les Garde Republicains, 5 minutes from my house, on boulevard Henri IV. They did not require reservations. Attendees dress accordingly like this woman in red jacket and navy pants to co-ordinate with the garde.
