August In Paris...And Versailles

There are very different opinions on spending August in Paris. Some people like it because Paris is empty, there is less polution and more freedom. I consider it as the sadest time being here because nearly everything apart from the big stores and chains is closed and there are no parisians but only tourists. I will gladly leave this Saturday for a two week vacation coming back at the end of August for la rentrée.

In case someone visits Paris shortly and reads this blog I would highly recommend to reserve a ticket for the Versailles Summer Events. I was seeing the "grand evening fountain display" last Saturday and it was stunning. Some of my photos reflect the magic atmosphere which lasted from sunset to midnight. An exprerience everyone who loves Paris should make.

Time For Lace

I was very pleased to see lace as one of my favorite fabrics back on the runway in Prada's Fall 2008 ready-to-wear collection. Today I was browsing though new photos on Garance Doré's streetstyle blog and I noticed the "lace look" has already made it on to the street. Lace as such is a very sensitive, elegant and aesthetic material that makes you look very very feminin with a wicked touch.
My favorite lace dresses are actually available in Peal Lowe's lace dress collection. All a bit pricy for me so I might go for some vintage shopping shortly.
