Sorry there’s been no posts all week, I’ve been in Paris!! What a beautiful, inspirational city (especially once you get away from the main touristy bits). It’s been a really useful trip for me, I was amazed at just how much bigger children’s fashion is in France. I could write pages and pages about all that we saw and did but I think it will be better if I break it down into smaller more readable posts. Dave spent most of his time taking candids so there aren’t a great deal of photographs of me to show you, plus the fact it was extremely cold and so I spent most of my time wrapped up in my fur coat so you can’t see much of my outfits underneath anyway!! I need to seriously get back into work mode and draw up more designs properly (I’ve jotted down loads of ideas this week) so it may take a while to fill you in on Paris properly but will get photos and musings up asap. In the mean time here’s me at Sacré-Coeur in Montmatre (the highest point in Paris), the weather was a bit grotty but the view was still pretty epic. Around the immediate area of Sacré-Coeur you have about a million tacky tourist shops but the further we went into the back streets the more we saw of the real Paris and lots of vintage shops too which always makes me happy (it was even better because it didn’t seem to have taken hold so much as in London). I got an amazing pair of corduroy culouttes and Dave got an army jacket.
Plan for the morning is to catch up on my emails, some yoga, draw up some more designs and put some more research into my sketchbook. But before I do any of that I’ve promised to go and make Dave a sausage sandwich!!
