Light and luminous, and exquisitely glistening couture.
"To breathe Paris preserves the soul"—Victor Hugo, Les Miséables. To breath in the very culture of Paris, the essence; the sounds, the smells, the sights, the feelings. Our senses guide our hearts and minds, and create lifelong memories, relationships and impressions. In essence, to preserve is to keep something alive, to protect and maintain...And why do we love it so? I believe it is because we want to savour all that makes it so special. If for nothing else, to re–capture the feelings and emotions that encompasses all that is Paris...Is there a city that makes you feel just this way?
Of note: Yesterday, I received a lovely invitation to some Design Week events in NYC, as well as a press conference. (I was so surprised! And blushing! ) Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend, but as Roseline of This is Glamorous said, it's "always fun to think of who might be reading". For those who visit, thank you for stopping by. Whether you stop by daily or whenever possible, your readership is very much appreciated...and with that, I wish you a wonderful weekend!
