This post is one that I am dedicating to a trip I took to Paris that forever changed my life. I put this outfit together based on my love for Coco Chanel as well as the “City of lights!” While visiting Paris I was lucky enough to experience the city during fashion week. An amazing time when the cobble stone streets are over flowed with Haute couture and all the glitz and glamour one can ever dream of! The minute I stepped foot in this incredible place, I fell in love in ways I had never experienced before. From drinking cafe au lait’s at the local brasseries, to visiting the iconic 31 Rue Cambon Chanel, every minute I spent in this city was nothing short of magical. I decided to share some of my favorite pics from the trip.
Born and raised in Detroit, I wanted to share a fun fact. Many don’t know this, but Detroit was actually founded by a French explorer and nobleman by the name of Antoine de la Mothe, sieur de Cadillac and the word “Detroit” is actually French for “strait.” The French called the river “le detroit du Lac Erie,” meaning “the strait of Lake Erie.”
It’s always funny how certain things tie you together in certain ways!
When putting together this look, I wanted to keep it sleek and simple. A clean silhouette with the edge of killer stiletto’s and fingerless gloves. I would wear this outfit any day of the week in Paris, but living in Detroit, I would do this only for an evening event. I have a slight obsession with graphic T’s and I love exploring all of the different ways to pair them. Hair in a half top knot and a darker lip completes the look. Shop the outfit here:
