Our day started with two hours of frantic packing, and a one-hour wait in customs (with an additional hour spent waiting for the keys to our Parisian flat.) Worth it? Every second of it! I would’ve hated to do this alone, but I’m traveling to Paris Fashion Week with my friend and creative collaborator, Zana Bayne, who’s known for her exquisitely hand-crafted leather harnesses, footwear, and accessories. Our flat is cute and homey, fully equipped with a cozy bed, a spacious closet, and working wifi. Most importantly, we’ve got stack of show invitations waiting to be opened.
Today’s post is in black and white, but starting tomorrow, we’ll be posting in full-on color.
*Like any self-respecting New Yorker, I bargained with a street vendor who originally wanted me to pay €45 for a warm bottle. I’ll be happily spending that €40 on cabs this week!
