La Vie en rose

I was wearing this dress when I was spotted by French blogger P; unfortunately I didn't see her and she was on her way somewhere so she didn't have time to stop and chat anyway. It's a shame because I would have enjoyed meeting her. Either way, it's always funny to hear you've been "spotted" because I tend to forget people read my blog.

As you can tell from the super, cozy Elizabeth Lau knit dress I'm wearing: it got quite brisk here in Paris. The weather forecast is similar for Italy, so my bright sunshine days of summer might be behind me and I show no signs of the slightest tan yet...perhaps I'll get some more sun and heat in NYC when I go up for fashion week?
As much as I have been bemoaning the change in the weather to my sister, I have to say this is how I always pictured Paris. I tend to form rather hazy ideas of how I think places ought to be; I try not to be too exact since that often leads to disappointment. Still, from all my stereotyped cognitions of Paris from vintage films and a few Edith Piaf songs, grey skies and a cool wind come to mind...

  14. Aaaah it's really sad that I couldn't stop and come to talk to you, but I was running to my appointment and I was already late ... ;_; What a pity! =(
    Actually, since my return from vacation in Poland, I was so busy at work that I had no time to read many blogs... And because of that, I didn't know that you were traveling in Europe these days ...
    I recognize this beautiful black dress now!! ^^
    Very very nice! And I must say that I've particularly noticed you from far thanks to your hair, what a gorgeous color! It suits you perfectly! ^^
    And yes, it's really freezing these last days, but usually, we have nice summer weather here till the end of september... I don't understand what's happening, I have to wear my winter coat because of this cold wind =(
    I hope we can meet one day, if you ever come back to Paris, don't hesitate to let me know by mail! ;)

    Kisses from Paris! ;)

  27. I love this! It does seem very Parisian. As does your red hair, for some reason... I'm not sure if there are many French redheads, I'm thinking not but I'm sure there's some rousses la, non? :p
    Have you picked up any French? Or have you already spoken it at all?
