"Life isn't about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself." - George Bernard Shaw

Despite the connectivity of the internet, the blogosphere, Facebook and Skype (just to name a few), I often enjoy walking the streets of Paris knowing that no one knows me here.  Before this move, I had lived in San Francisco for so long, made so many memories and so many friends, that it never crossed my mind to approach new encounters and new circumstances as if I were new too.   No matter where I am, each day holds the possibility to become the person I want to become (and I hope I am on my way), but I feel that possibility with much more poignancy living thousands of miles away from the city I know myself so well in.

First off I need to say that I am already a huge fan of your blog and I have only been for for 2 minutes. This outfit is AMAZING. Not many people can pull off the menswear look and you do it beautifully! :)

I totally know what you mean...I actually lived in Bordeaux for a bit sometime ago and it was always such a weird but amazing feeling to walk around and not know a SINGLE person. Kind of liberating in a way.

And as for this outfit - beautiful! I love how you kept the whole look in the black and white family, and the menswear inspired details are perfectly offset by your beautiful styling and face! Stunning.

I love the top picture. The profile, the outfit, and the blue door are parfait! I also have always really liked that George Bernard Shaw quote.
