i love paris in the summer when it sizzles

July 31, 2011

i am now back in london with my two french straw bags….one bought in montparnasse that marie cybele also wants and one bought at the eurostar terminal that is petite version of the other which i wanted…

there wasn’t much summer sizzling….my shorts got one outing on the last day…but there was internally..

i visited the eiffel tower and chose the stairs as i’m freaked out about heights….

i didn’t even make it up to the first level…just half way up…gripping the rail and looking pale..

so back i went to terra firma..

i was wearing ellis’s….lace brown dress with a body suit and got a few shocked looks from old parisian ladies…

admiring ones too…(not from old parisian ladies)

and someone called me lady ga ga (hardly)!!!!!!!

LATER IN PRADA…. i saw the exact same dress in creme….so there!!!!

and many sweaters in martin margelia i drooled over….and wanted to take home!!

i had coffee in cafe flore outside and adore there cups whilst waiting for marie cybele to finish work..

with my elle magazine, and some lovely old parisian gentleman who saved my table for me…

another delicious dinner that night in the 11th adroissant…

i walked down the champs elysees as i was replacing my lost nars lipstick…

singing joni mitchells song about it…

… “if i had my way….i’d just walk through those doors and wander down the champs eylsees “….

we ate in an amazing africian restaurant that night….

last day i went to the centre pompidou to get my photo taken in huge poster format… as part of  a art installation,i waited for two hours, with a loud italian girl behind me who was really getting on my nerves and didn’t make lunch with marie cybele because of it…

people took photo’s of my mui mui shoe’s

the photo was awful so i left in the bin outside…(must have been all the negative thoughts radiated to the italian!)

headed to the marais for soap and lunch at an adorable cafe i went to earlier in the week and i found easily..

i met a girl having lunch who was lovely and works in fashion…she thought i worked in fashion too..

everyone thinks that…

she has been in paris 8 months and is loving it…

she said the city loves her…

she keeps getting given free clothes and showed me the jacket she had just been given…

i left the cafe in light rain and back to pack quickly and get to the eurostar…

i was sad to leave…..

on the train i met another french women who was very nice and offered to teach me french and to go and stay with her…

i won’t be doing either but enjoyed meeting her…

i got out the taxi to a newly painted house…

and they are doing up the corridor this week and sprucing everything up so that was nice…

it was a very inspiring visit for me…

now to learn french!!!!!!
