Last week, I hopped on the Eurostar to Paris to visit "Who's Next & Premiere Classe", a popular ready to wear trade show taking place at the Parc des Expositions at Porte de Versailles. There I was able to preview the upcoming Spring-Summer collection for most of the well-known European ready-to-wear labels. I will tell you about my discoveries in a separate post as I feel some of the labels I came across deserve their own articles! For today, I wanted to share with you a few snapshots I took while wandering around my home town.
There is nothing quite like being a tourist in your home town. Ever since I moved to London from Paris, I have this privilege and it truly is wonderful. I had fallen a little out of love with Paris in the last few years before I moved abroad but now our love affair is more than even back on track. I savour every moment I have in the French capital, enjoying the lifestyle, the food and of course the beautiful sights!
Being a recent iPhone convert (I know, I know!), I also became incredibly addicted to Instagram, a photography app/ photo sharing network so the images below have all been edited with the app.
