Do you know the way to Le Marais?
The title to this blog must be hummed in the melody of “Do you know the way to San Jose?” I’m just sayin’. Ha!
Today is my day off and it is today that I will make a list of all the important documents that I must have for le grand move! Yesterday, I finally watched “La vie en Rose” with the incredible Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf and I must say that I’m going to follow her career carefully because this young woman gave an unforgettable performance.
For some reason I want to immerse myself in fashion, French fashion, the fashion that I see on the streets. When I was in Paris to celebrate the New Year I noticed how much attention I paid to how I dress. My love is a great dresser, one of his favorite designers (and mine as well) is Dries Van Noten, but I don’t want to lose myself in designer names. It’s not about what label you’re wearing, it’s how you wear what you’re wearing.
In the video below, a young model says something so true about French fashion. That you can wear the same jeans and t-shirt everyday but change it up with different accessories is very true to what makes street fashion in Paris so wonderful.
Paris makes you feel more beautiful, more alive, you want to experiment more with what you already have in your closet as well as acquire those timeless pieces that give you a thrill every time that you wear them. What’s your style of dress? I keep it classic, but I love wearing slightly masculine cuts. I wore my love’s coats and scarves while I was in Paris. The man has great taste.
Do you dress differently depending on the city that you’re in?
