The last time I went to Paris was in 2011. Because my grandpa turned 80 years old. I was accompanied by my family, including nieces, aunts etc.
It was a really chic happening, with a lot of endless diners, crispy creme brulee toppings and some nice shopping (allright this was not so chique, only Zara, too expensive). At that moment we stayed there it was fashion week @ Palais de Tokyo. Me and my niece were very curious and we spotted some models and some looks in the building. No we couldn't sneak into a show.. The atmosphere in the city was exquisite.
This editorial in Elle Australia has such a nice light breeze. I can almost smell the city again, including sniffing some Chanel parfume, baguettes, and hearing the street musicians play.
Even the majestic trees that graced and sheltered her streets were attuned to her and the waters of the Seine, contained and beautiful as they wound through her heart; so that the earth on that spot, so shaped by blood and consciousness, had ceased to be the earth and had become Paris.
