Monday, December 12, 2011 Paris up for Auction



























































[Jacket: Bershka] [Tan Dress: Target] [Black Dress: Triumph Couture] [Scarf: H&M] [Hat: men's from H&M] [Purse: Celine] [Boots: Coach] [Sunnies: Tom Ford]

My friend took me to a French auction house today.  As soon as we entered the room where many Christian Dior, Chanel, Hermes and Alaia (just to name a few) items were on auction, I felt my arm get a bit jumpy.  I kept thinking, "Keep your hand down, keep your hand down."  Everything was stunning, but the people in the room were almost more interesting than the items up for auction.  From the old to the young, all the women had an air of chicness to them that went beyond the clothes they wore and the bags they held.  I stood up a little taller, talked a little softer and left feeling like I had seen something special, or at least something off the tourist trail.  This can be hard to do since there is always some breathtaking and famous view around every turn in Paris - as evidenced by my photos for the day.

It is wonderful! But like any place - there are ups and downs and the grass is always greener on the other side....but then again, Paris is magic :)
