Out and About In Boston

Spent a terrific 20th birthday running around Boston with my family. We mostly hung in Quincy Market and, would you believe it? I didn't buy one single thing. The reason being that nothing really grabbed my attention (must be getting picky in my old age ;).

I tried on a ton of sunglasses but have yet to find that perfect pair. I am definitely going for some big ones like Anne Hathaway wore in her latest InStyle spread, or those classic Audrey Hepburn ones. Speaking of the latter, Mom got me Audrey: A Life In Pictures for my birthday. Pretty amazing that she was able to find a book on AH that I hadn't already read and I really loved it - joins my Grace Kelly book from the same series.

I had such a grand time and saw some very well dressed people. Some were "bleh" but others really knew what they were doing. I've got to get myself a little camera so I can snap people's pictures without their knowing.  ;) Inspiration was everywhere...

Anyway, off to have my "vacation". I have a few scheduled posts and will be back with more when I am freshened up! God bless! :)

Paris Fashion Week 2em Partie

Vivienne Westwood
Yohji Yamamoto
Antonio Berardi
Christian Dior
Maison Martin Margiela

Salut mes amis.Comment ça va?J'espère que tout est bien!I guess now it's time to change to english before I embarrass myself.This morning I woke up by the loud rain and it didn't change the entire day.Bad weather means beeing in a bad mood for me.Yesterday finally my Minnetonkas arrived and I was so happy that I wore them all day long at home.They are definately not the best boots for rainy days so I decided to spare them.Hopefully tomorrow it will be much better.I wish I could say at least Paris FW could cheer me up but the shows did not at all.I'm fairly disappointed so there's no real favorite.Antonio Berardi and Christian Dior just scrape through. Maison Martin Margiela just shocked me.I was so scared by some of the looks that I felt like I was in a nightmare. Vivienne Westwood is always a bit too special and freaky for me but today there were at least two nice dresses I'd wear.
Just me or were you guys disappointed as well?
I'm off to learn for a english class test.Please don't mind me if I won't post anything tomorrow because next day there's a math test.I hope you wish me luck for both because last time in latin it helped me a lot:I got a 1 (maybe better known as an 'A' ☺).

Thanks for this again ♥.
Catch you in a few day hopefully in a better mood, something new and better from Paris.

Here's the first part.After I missed the whole FW of Milan (scroll down for whole recap) this time I'll try to follow and write about it everyday. Hopefully I'll find the time.

The italien FW impressed me honestly a lot.What about you?Liked it better then the others before?
