Last weekend in Paris

There was a cold snap in the air when we reached Paris...felt very romantic.


Mom and I stopped in a park which I've forgotten the name of..

Wow!! Why don't trees look like that in Texas?

While we were in Paris, we bought an accessories magazine, and they had styled this Ann Demeulemeester boot with one shaft on, one shaft off. I couldn't resist trying it myself!

Mom's beautiful Dries van Noten pumps that I am soooo jealous of.

Just after we left NY...we saw this graffiti on the street!\

Cool model of something in a window...

On the Rue de Archives

We passed this window with a billion jumpropes all tangled up in it..it was oddly compelling.

Saw this AMAZING vintage book store...it was closed, otherwise I would have gone in there and snatched up those Vogues.

Enjoyed a delicious veggie lasagna.

It's true..Paris has the cutest dogs in the world.

Sigh...this post is making me want to jump on a plane to Paris...but it's a beautiful afternoon here in Texas..perfect for some lunch and shopping. My mom and my sister and I had a great time today at Northpark...and we brought home some incredible shoes!! We've waited on these shoes for quite some time. Can't wait to post them.

 I hope everyone everywhere is enjoying their weekends!

Tonight I went out with my friends and my friends boots caught my eye I freaked out because I was like do u understand you are wearing shoes designed by one of my favorite bloggers? LOL she didn't know why I was so hyped but anyway congrats, you are the epitomy of creative convergence( a movement I stand behind) and inspiration. BTW your mom looks amazing!! I love Ms. Judy-a personal style inspiration for me personally.

Paris is so magical, although I can put my finger on it why exactly.. The styling of the ankle boot with the large boot is amazing and I must say I love those boots! You're mother and you are beautiful and you can see that you're having a fantastic time in Paris.

I am sure you've seen the film COCO AVANT CHANEL with Audrey Tatou.
I don't know if you can remeber a scene where she is laying in a bed of leaves under a tree.
The first two pictures of this post reminds me a lot that scene! you were really in the Chanel mood when in Paris! ;)

Your pictures are gorgeous and make me feel even prouder to live near such a beautiful city.
I love your blog... and your shoes !

Real Talk: the only reason why you are able to enjoy this fantasy life that you lead is because you are filthy stinking rich with parents who clearly aren't looking for a lawyer or doctor out of you. You clearly aren't attending school of any kind so I suppose the NYTimes article about you WAS spot on. I'm sure it also helps that your mother gets to live vicariously through ALL of your appearances and events. This isn't an attempt to tear you down but to basically make sure you know that you need to own it. Own the fact that this blog is just a mass of narcissism that feeds the hungry little jealous readers that comment excessively and aggressively. it is their obsession with your blog that has created all of the opportunities that you have been so graciously afforded. I'm not even quite sure what it IS you do apart from wear insanely expensive couture and vintage clothing. Are you a stylist? Designer? I'm just confused, disturbed and completely put off. You'll probably delete this because this comment is entirely too real for the likes of the mindless drones that write on and on about much they envy, love and adore you but I must say I'm afraid. Afraid that this is the future. Idol worship of a wealthy girl amid economic chaos.

Your pictures of Paris are awesome! I love the one shaft on, one shaft off look.

Photo of Elodie

Thank you :)

Greetings. from Paris.
