Paris, je t'aime!

Apartment living in the most beautiful city in the world:  les huitres au citron, un peu de vin, tout en  plein-air. 

What I'm wearing:  my post-Kandahar summer wardrobe.  I love this little draped adaptation of a one-shoulder Burda top. The slacks I love a little less - though I'm fighting to regain the weight I lost at KAF, it's hard work, and all my bottoms - skirts & pants - are still too baggy.  Much of the time I look like I'm playing dressup in my mother's closet:  NOT a great look anywhere, but especially not so in très chic Paris!

Yum, yum!

I made this little Burda jacket nearly two years ago, but never actually had the occasion to wear it till now - and how's this for perfect colour coordination with the environs? I'm practically invisible.  
And speaking of invisible:  le Panthéon est bien grand et impressionnant, mais ou est Waldo? 


  1. Lucky you! How lovely you look with Paris as a backdrop.

  2. How lovely to stay in an apartment in Paris! I did that with friends several years ago and we had a blast.
