If you had told me some months ago that one day I would get an invitation for Chanel fashion show in Paris, have an apartment with a view of the Eiffel Tower with Paris Perfect Rentals, watch Eiffel Tower sparkling from my bathtub every night and meet Nicole Warne from garypeppergirl.com in person, I would’ve said “hey you, you must be kidding me”. But yes, all of this happened. In Paris.
Let’s take it from the beginning. Last Tuesday I bought a ticket to Paris and on Saturday I was there. Usually, I plan my travels weeks before the departure, but when the invitation to attend the Chanel fashion show lands in your office, you just book a ticket, pack your things and leave everything behind without giving it a second thought. The fashion was planned for Tuesday but I wanted to be in the city a few days before the show, to visit friends and places that I’ve missed and to do my favourite things like eating a croissant at Cafe Pouchkine and macaron from Pierre Hermé.
What kind of shoes would you take with you for a city trip? Paris is ideal for a long stroll, and that’s why I wanted a pair of comfortable shoes and opted for the HUGO BOSS flats from Humanic. I matched them with black leggings (that every woman has in her wardrobe) and a beige lace top from Benetton. Comfortable, elegant and above all very Frenchy.
