Oh Paris

Woop woop, I’m back in London after a few cosy days in Paris where I except from enjoying my favourite Laotian food and spending time with family and friends, soaked up the Christmassy feeling and installations at the department stores, tried on a trillion Valentino shoes, and ended up with this beautiful red carrier bag that made my eyes all teary, a true Valentino-princess-moment that I hope will last a looong time.

Picks from Paris

Remember back in March when I mentioned Sophie Hulme’s “affordable luxury” bags? I spotted them in several colors in Paris, and if you’re interested you’ll find them here.

Gorgeous Nathalie Vodionova at Dior with uncountable amounts of lenses and iphone cameras surrounding her, crazy!

“Faith” bag from Jil Sander’s pre-fall collection

I love Lana Del Rey!

Elena Perminova in Celine shoes

Emmanuelle Alt sported a crispy blue striped cotton shirt with black trousers, need a stripey one myself…..

Was thinking of getting this supercute skirt with pockets myself from Balenciaga pre-fall a few weeks ago, anyway, if interested you’ll find it here.

Opulent trousers by Balmain paired with Chanel at Chanel

Net dress by Jil sander SS12 and Tom Binns crystal jewellery

Tuileries

Who could imagine high summer at this time of year, I’m pretty sure we never really had these high temperatures and burning sun any time this summer and I don’t mind at all being in Paris enjoying it. It has been a challenge though to get dress and after only a few days I had already used the summery fabrics I brought along. I could safely have left trousers and jumpers back home and only packed floating summery dresses.ย Obviously I haven’t been the only one with this “problem” and I guess many have had to improvise, or hit the stores for summery stuff in October, or those brave ones who decided to simply stay up against the heat.

I wore this outfit a few days ago and was completely melting away, I wore leather skirt, sandals and bag by Acne, top Zara, watch Tagheuer, bracelet J Dauphin, sunnies Ralph Lauren and the sand on my shoes are from Tuileries!

Rue de Rivoli

Yes, I ended up missing the whole Celine event this noon so I headed over to the Tuileries for breakfast along Rue de Rivoliย while waiting for the next show. One of my favorite things in Paris is to sit outdoor on a bistro observing life around and that’s exactly what I did in the summery sun this noon.

Sunset

Fashion Week in Paris is a little crazy but I love it and indian summer continues so it’s back on with everything called summery clothes. My first day here was a little hectic though, perhaps due to the fact I was limping around in flats and at the end of the day, around sunset, just before the light was all gone, I realized I hadn’t got outfit photos taken, hence the blurry dark quality.
Anyway I wore top by Isabel Marant, shorts Acne, shoes Zara, bag Chanel, sunnies Phillip Lim, watch Michael Kors, bracelets Hermes and Intermix.

Saturday

Balenciaga

Alexander Wang

On Saturday in Paris I spotted the incredible handcrafted waistcoat from Balenciaga’s fall collection, my favorite look was on full display but I was in a hurry and only snapped it through the windows. There were a whole lot of quick window-shopping that day, followed by a few treats to myself. Sadly the weather was crap so I ended up sporting taxi’s instead of wandering along the river which I always do when I’m there.

I’ve been asked by some of you readers to to tip about places to shop and eat when in Paris, I’m probably not the right person to advice as I’m not a “local”, but I’m gonna try to put something together, from a tourist’s point of view.

Serendipity

Bonjour! Paris has been wonderful so far and yesterday was a non-stop day with shopping eating and randomly we bumped into 2 groups of friends in 2 different areas of Paris. In fact I was led to one of the areas, Marais, tracking a pair of gorgeous shoes, serendipity I guess.

Now, gotta get ready to a massive birthday party, wishing you a happy Sunday too!

I wore skirt Acne, jumper Margiela, gillet H&M, boots Topshop, bracelet Proenza Schouler, watch Michael Kors, ring YSL, bag Celine and sunnies Ralph Lauren.

Desert

On Sunday I strolled around in beautiful Paris the whole day, stopped by charming bistro’s and enjoyed the sun, it was incredible hot and felt like desert, I’d forgotten to bring along sandals and lets just say I won’t forget that ever again, my boots absolutely killed me in the heat.

I wore a dress from Cos, shoes Margiela, bracelets Proenza Schouler, bag phillip Lim, sunnies Ralph Lauren.

Proper

Good Monday morning, I’m back in London after a fab weekend in Paris and as the weather turned out to be fantastic I ended up improvising in the last minute before the wedding on Saturday and slipped into the most summery dress I brought along, though I’m normally not into yellow I kind of like this paler shade, it’s from H&M.

Dress and necklace H&M, bracelet Margiela, ring Pamela Love for Topshop, shoes Camilla Skovgaard.

Double up

Spotted this girl yesterday at Philip Lim’s and her position with her head dug into her camera LV screen has pretty much been my own this weekend. I can imagine it doesn’t make things easier to pick images from 2 cameras, as I’ve got more than enough with one already, unless one of them is just to accessorize, anyway, I love her little strict black satchel, the baby blue dotted wide dress, and hair tucked behind her ear, she’s cute indeed.

Rush

Between a wedding ceremony this noon and a wedding party I’m now running late for I managed to squeeze inย Phillip Lim’s Menswear presentation for next summer, and you men out there sure have something to look forward too, I’ll show you when I’ve got more time, now, run!

Triple French

New in from Paris are these stripey pants from Sandro, belt Isabel Marant and this gorgeous neck collar from Celine, I was absolutely thrilled to come across it, last one in stock and it has been sold out everywhere for a while now in my size, but this one, perfect!

Dimensions

Back in London after a speed trip to Paris, gosh, there are so many things I love with that city and by that I mean beyond the great shopping and wonderful food. The space and dimension is what always strike me, the width of the streets, monumental buildings and beauty. I’ll be back soon for sure!

Images taken on Monday, I wore a brand new linen jacket Zara, love it! Dress and scarf Isabel Marant, shoes Margiela, bag Celine, sunnies Ralph Lauren, watch Michael Kors and various gold bracelets.
