You know, I feel like the number of cute cars in Paris has seriously gone down since I wrote this post last winter - the Smart Car supply has definitely dwindled, and I've hardly seen any Fiats. But I absolutely loved this adorable little pop of orange in Saint Germain the other day! Maybe I could toodle around Marin in one of those. : )
Who knew that the small, pretty building in the Tuileries Gardens housed two rooms full of Monet's floor-to-ciling water lilies? My mom and I went to Musee de L'Orangerie the other day, and we both loved it. To start, Monet's lilies are incredible - you really could just stare at them for hours. But I also loved the simplicity of the museum - it wasn't so large that it was overwhelming, but the collections were quite impressive. Highly recommended!
I miss my beautiful little Broadway so much. She really should be here with us, don't you think?
Poodles are French, after all. : )
I didn't read anything about it in the news, but the Seine was crazy high today - the water flooded over the roads, so they had to close a bunch of them. Reminds me of Manzanita in Mill Valley on, like, a daily basis. : )
I guess you can figure out when the Paris tourism high season is. I still can't quite figure out what everyone is doing in that first photo, which we took in July ... but if you want to go throw yourself on that pyramid, too, you can find it in the Carrousel de Louvre, a very well-done shopping and dining area under the Tulleries Gardens, right next to the entrance of the museum.

I loved modeling for the San Francisco Academy of Art University styling class back in December ... it was amazing to see what all of the students came up with! Even though it was practically impossible to get those paper cutout things to stay in place ( we ended up using extremely sticky hairspray) this look was one of my favorites.

Even though the French don't seem to care very much about American football, I didn't forget that today is the Superbowl! I haven't seen any nachos or chilli around here, but I think I managed to make up for it with an amazing Gerard Mulot chocolate macaron and a falafel from Pitzman. Bonus! Pitzman's colors are the same as the 49rs. : )
Tonight was my first time going to Pitzman, actually, and I loved it. It's just around the corner from the really famous falafel places (L'As Du Fallafel and Mi Va Mi), but it felt much more local. I ordered at the window, but the restaurant was packed. Anyway, that falafel was absolutely delicious ... the actual falafel balls were the doughiest and possibly the best that I've tasted, and the pita was thick and crunchy, in a good way. Mostly what I liked, though, was how unpretentious the whole place felt. So refreshing. : )
Eat some nachos for me! And go 49rs!
Today was another ridiculously cold day in Paris, which made me think about this shoot that I did in December. Love that it ran in 7 x 7 ... click here for the link. Aren't the fuzzy Celine-inspired heels adorable? The stylist made them herself!
