Moments of Couture

Paris couture week is over, but the glory of the catwalk (which reaches its peek at couture shows, naturally) still has me under its spell. Thanks to NY Times Fashion blog – which always captures the most gorgeous photos of unexpected moments and details with perfect lighting and colors – we can keep on living the dream for a little while longer.

Marais & Tour Eiffel

Two most unrelated locations in Paris and I’m in both of them same day. Marais is my heaven (as it would be for most of you) tiny linked streets filled with boutiques, shops, vintage shops, cafes, restaurants, street singers… But there are some realities in life called 1)being broke 2)parents getting tired of walking so we headed to Eiffel to lay down in the park and enjoy the sun which may fool you into believing that the weather is hot but its NOT! Hence the double jackets. I love Paris more than any other country/city in the world but I’m starting to miss my home, wardrobe and fancier outfits. If only I can move here for good… The “only” problem is the language and for those of you who don’t know me I like to learn the language after it becomes useless.

Rive Droite to Rive Gauche

(Its been almost 5 years, I still love it like the first day) I know the edges of the leather is showing from the inside but still better than paying through the nose for a Zara coat which I probably will wear only 4 or 5 times. My dress is Topshop as well. We walked for 6 hours straight today; starting from Opéra as always to Beaubourg and Les Halles passing through Rue Montmartre (its a lovely street!) saw Centre Georges Pompidou, continued to St Michel, Jardin du Luxembourg – Rue Sevres, Rue du Vieux Colombier, St Sulpice, Rue Bonaparte… got tired of writing, image how my feet feel. Last 2 days and tomorrow Marais time!

Jardin des Tuileries

I’ve always wanted to take a blogger picture on the dusty roads of Jardin des Tuileries, afterall its a fashion week tradition. My outfit is as blah as it can be, but I got my picture and thats fine. (I wasnt’t just walking around, I was headed to Musée D’orsay – being able to see Starry Night over the Rhone before you die is a privilage, I tell you) Zara dress & Vintage cardigan & H&M necklace. The last picture is when I was drooling infront of jeweller windows at Place Vendome.
