Black butterflies and long lashes at Lanvin.
Now it’s been a month since fashion week happened in Paris, but I still have a few more photos I would like to share with you guys if you don’t mind. If you’ve missed the previous posts from this season you can find them here: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
I’m absolutely in love with that burgundy coloured Louis Vuitton bag (photo #10), the leather just looks so soft! I adore the spring colours and all of the pink outside Valentino (photo #7), I wish that my hair could look that sophisticated at certain times (photo #1) and I love that red pop of colour against all the black in the form of a tiny Louis Vuitton bag (phot #6).
Yesterday, when I passed Colette’s window display, I couldn’t help myself from stopping to snap a few photos. Babar has arrived at Colette! Now I don’t know about you, but I grew up with Babar so this was a little bit of nostalgia for me. I only wish I was a guy though, so that I could buy those swim trunks immediately.
I hope you’re not too sick of the photos from the past Paris fashion week. I’m absolutely head over heels in love with that Valentino trench coat (photo #1), I adore Nicole Richie’s hair braid and all that Valentino red (in photo #4), and I just want to get Anna Dello Russo’s little doggie away from the fashion madness (photo #11).
“How do I dress to fit in among the Parisians in Paris?” is one of the most common questions I get asked here on the blog and of course there’s not one right answer to this questions since Parisians dress in a million different ways (just like anywhere else), but I thought I could share how I usually dress to blend in among the chic women here in Paris with you guys. Please bear in mind that I’m far away from being any kind of fashion expert, I only dress in the items I find appealing.
A safe colour to start with is always black if you want to “fit in” in Paris so I usually use that as my base. I wish that I would use more colour in my wardrobe but for some reason that never happens. Although I love to add a pop of colour in the form of accessories; like a handbag, a necklace or shoes. When the weather allows it I’m always in my ballet flats. They’re comfortable, easy to wear and perfect for a city like Paris. I pick a jacket depending on the temperature outside but during springtime I’ll most likely wear my classic beige trench coat or a similar jacket to the one you can see above.
Of course I think you should dress the way you feel the most comfortable! Paris isn’t that different from most other cities since everybody has their own personal style. Although I would say: please leave those training sneakers at home!
Jacket: BB Dakota – Top: Massimo Dutti – Pants: Acne – Necklace: Lulu Frost – Bag: Chanel – Shoes: Local find in Paris, H&M, Zara.
Paris fashion week (and the whole fashion month actually) is over for this time. I’m totally exhausted after all the shooting but kind of miss the fashion madness at the same time. But don’t worry! For those of you who like these little glimpses of fashion week, I promise you: there’s (much) more to come. And for those of you who can’t stand it, please bare with me during the coming days.
Hope you’ll enjoy the photos! Right now those Christian Louboutin loafers (photo #3), that gorgeous Patek Philippe watch (photo #7) and those fun Louis Vuitton checks (photo #11) are driving me crazy. I want it all!
During the weekend I managed to snap a few shots outside the Viktor & Rolf show. The highlight of the day was probably to get a glimpse of Jessica Chastain (seen in photo #8) in real life, just a few days after her red carpet appearance at the Oscars. Unfortunately the weather was absolutely freezing, dull and grey but I’ll cross my fingers for it to be better today. Hope you’ll enjoy the photos! (Hover over a photo for more information)
