When in Paris, especially for Couture Week, you bring your French fashion A-game and have fun with it. These are two of my absolute favorite fashion finds from two iconic Parisian houses: Dior and Lanvin. With so many photographers in Paris, it’s a game to see if you can get caught on camera, and this graphic ensemble is a photogenic feminine dream: it’s ladylike but modern, making for one irreplaceable Paris couture moment.
If you’ve followed my travel series before, you know I have no qualms about eating alone at a fabulous restaurant in a foreign city. It’s great for meeting new people, and it’s by far the best way to find a local bistro. This Paris go-around called for a stop in the stylish new neighborhood dig Maison Lautrec. The laid-back find in the 9th arrondissement is inviting and warm, bolstered by a menu derived from the produce of their very own vegetable patch. The food was fantastic and clearly a can’t-miss Pigalle pick, as every chair in sight was filled that Tuesday night. A definite must see for your next Paris adventure!
