This weekend Paris was blessed with the most gorgeous sunshine I have seen in quite some time. The air was still chilled but the sun has a way of bringing out the best of moods in this California girl. The boyf and I headed out to Le Marais to check out an antique market and got pleasantly lost amidst the twisted alley-ways that make up the neighborhood. Among the throngs of vintage Hermes scarves, designer jewelry and glamour-centric fur coats (of course, photos weren't allowed!) I did find a few fun random things...I am obsessed with shades of blue and orange right now and thought these old tins were just fab. And how could the inner Media Studies student in me not love the Sigmund Freud comic book?!
With fashion week quickly approaching I can't help but look back and get re-inspired by the looks from last year. These looks are über-feminine, each with their own allure...definitely keeping these in mind while I attempt to carve my way through January sale season!
What are some of your favorite inspirations from last year?
Confession: I am not a Ruby Aldridge fan. Everyone seems to love her but I can't seem to find the appeal. After a long, cold winter, I can't tell if it's Ruby or California's hot sun that makes me so in love with this spread from Harper's Bazaar February 2011 but it literally has me aching for warmer days, bare legs and a big green skirt.
