Paris in the Fall

Just spent 5 wonderful days in NYC. I do love the energy that city generates. New York is always positive. Everyone there believes in the American Dream. If NYC were not the birthplace of America, I would certainly say, it has been a large part of its education on so many levels. Hello? Bagels..Cream Cheese..Lox

I will not pretend for one second to be a historian, so let's just get down to the simple truth, there are so many immigrants in NYC. I had one American taxi driver during my 5 day stay. Considering I took about 8 taxis a day during 5 days....you do the math. Next truth I am baring....immigrant is not a bad thing to be, folks. Guess what? I am an immigrant in France, and have been for 32 years now. So, this is not a negative text I am writing. Now that I have cleared that up.........on with my thoughts..........as much as I do love New York, I adore Paris. I actually recorded a song about 25 years ago entitled just that:

J'aime New York, Mais J'adore Paris

Do not rush out to buy it, folks, as it is truly forgettable in the minds of the poor French population who had to witness my short lived singing career. Hey, it was a great experience!!!

The point of what I want to say is just that Paris is so very breathtakingly beautiful, that

I could never stay away for too long. These pictures are part of my life. I do walk or drive across this marvelous bridge...Pont Alexandre III about everyday, and I do see the Eiffel Tower about 10 times a day on my daily comings and goings. However, as soon as I return to Paris, I am already thinking about my next trip home. I am so lucky to be living in Paris and so very, very, very proud to call America my home.

O.K., now on to the really important part of this posting......girls......listen up:

My Outfit!!! I love this grey poncho that I manufacture for my boutique.

It comes in about 20 colors, and I have it made in Scotland. I have one on or in my bag about everyday. Good for crisp fall days, good for cool summer evenings. Great for keeping warm on airplanes and shopping in the frozen foods department in any country. Good gracious I just realized Crimson is a Global Necessity!!!

My jean is the slimmest fit I have ever ventured to buy. Picked it up while in NYC at J. Crew.

It is called the Breathless Jean. Understandable, as one does not dare to breathe while wearing it!!!

Now, girls, step back and look at these shoes.....I searched all over NYC to find them. I first saw them in this months' American Vogue. They are Marc Jacob's modern version of the brogue.

No, you are not seeing things, they indeed have gold sprinkles on the side. No, not low profile, but a hell of a lot of fun.

My bag is my own personalized with my initials vintage Goyard. I have carried it around the world. The Goyard bags are great because they are light as a feather...made of linen and cotton.

I throw in everything.....including my heavy camera. It is starting to look a little tired, but then again I like that.

Special message for Madame B.: Your Breathless Jean is on the way from NY. I called the Madison Ave. boutique and they agreed to ship it. So, make your trip to Deauville a short one!!!

See, ladies, I am a trend setter. I love it..........
