Bonjour all! I got back from a mini-vacation and I’m so excited to show and tell you all about it. Definitely the BEST part about being stationed in Germany is the ability to travel to fantastic places! One of my very favorite places is Paris, the city that offers it all – fashion, art, museums, delicious food, breathtaking views, historic sites…what can I say, it’s AMAZING.
This was our third visit, so the Hubby and I took three full days to check off some things on the bucket list. First for me was to check out an exhibition I read about in Glamour a couple months back, Glossy Paper – A Century of Fashion with Conde Nast. Presented by Vogue, this photo exhibit included historic images by legendary photographers, including Richard Avedon, Horst P. Horst, Patrick Demarchier, and Irving Penn.
Seeing original prints that dated back to Vogue’s earliest days just blew me away, plus the exhibit included some classic designs by Coco Chanel HERSELF, Yoji Yamamoto, Christian Dior, and Lanvin! Even Hubby was impressed with the works (and I feared he would be bored silly) and I enjoyed educating him about the various photographers. However, unfortunately, the museum had a strict “no photos” policy 😦 If any of you lovely European bloggers get a chance, GO SEE THIS! It will be at the Palais Galliera until May 25.
The day was GORGEOUS. Warming up to 70 degrees, the Hubby and I strolled down by the Seine to see the original Statue of Liberty. She is MUCH smaller than her sister in New York, but still a lovely sight!
The following day was stuffed with activity – which I’ll tell you about in tomorrow’s post! Au revoir!
