So now that fashion month is officially over and my epic cold abated, I’m back to the grind working on THPSHOP and other projects. One thing that I am relishing in now is the ability to schlep it. Shlepping in my own way, mind you. One of my favorite things that I got from Paris this time were these ‘No Name’ flatforms. The shop girl told me that back in the 90s when Nike was slapping that swoosh on ev-er-y-thang, this brand was formed to sorta counter the logo-happy movement. They are super affordable, stylish, and comfort outta this world. Skip through to find out where you can buy these!
So one of the craziest things about fashion week has got to be the street style photographers. Through the maddening rush of show goers, you’ll often see them weaving in and out of tight spots, ducking traffic (sometimes not–there were some major close calls!) just to get the shot. Having taken pictures of myself for almost 5 years now, there is nothing comparable to being snapped by say Tommy, Phil, Koo, or my fave Parisien Nabile. Jump through for outfit credits, so you can shop the looks!
My last outfit during Paris Fashion Week before heading back home. It was very, very hard to leave our beautiful little flat in Le Marais. Paris was probably the only city in the entire 4 week circuit that I had a moment to enjoy just being. Then again Paris is unique in that it encourages aimless wandering and long walks. I think most of my best restaurant/cafe/patisserie discoveries were chanced upon. This also resulted in 1, 2, sometimes 3 ‘treats’ a day, which for this self-professed nutritional zealot is a lot. But hey, when in France, do as the French do right?
Having visited Paris 3 years in a row now (this being the first for fashion week) I decided it was time to hop onto one of these rent-a-bikes. I have to say this is possibly one of the easiest (and funnest) ways to get around the city. And the ride along the Seine. Priceless. I may just do that here on my last day in Paris before heading back home and onto the next job!
A super quick post from Milan because I’ve just realized I haven’t posted in nearly a week! So as some of you may already know–I’m SICK (hi Instagram!). Yes, this fashion month flu warrants all-caps. People warned me of fatigue and the inevitable body-shut down, but I paid no heed. I’ll tell you all more later about my adventures, so in the mean time, enjoy this leggy outfit, shot by my loveliest Margaret Zhang.
