As I sit here in Hotel in Paris writing this post, I’m so grateful that I am here. Trust me I’m always a Cali girl at heart, but if I were to choose between the freezing New York weather I went through this last fashion week or the cold and bearable weather here in Paris , I’d have to choose Paris. I know I’ve been gushing over this beautiful city ever since I landed, but I can’t help it! Don’t get me wrong, there are some parts of the New York polar vortex I did enjoy. First is the gorgeous white carpet of snow that covered the ground. Although it’s not the most ideal to walk in heels with (trust me I tried it HERE) it made for an ideal backdrop to my outfit photos. Second, I love the look of layering and the crisp cold temperatures in NYC was the perfect place for me to take advantage of just that.
If you aren’t already make sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook to see what I’ve been up to during my time here in Paris for Fashion Week.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.

An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

Without sounding completely creepy, I want to hug you! Your coat just seems so warm and soft. Lovely combination! And I love how you pair your voluptuous coat with lighter, delicate pieces.

    Yes I loved it! Thanks for reading my post!

    Chriselle ( March 3, 2014 at 11:03 AM )

You look absolutely stunning Chriselle! Totally loving the lighter hair color. I also love the mix of textures in your outfit. I always love monochromatic looks with texture differences; it adds so much more interest to the eye.

Sounds like you’re having a blast in Paris! I took French for 4 years and don’t remember much of it, but Paris is on top of my bucket list of places to visit.

    You must go back and practice your french Maggie and visit Paris!
