Silver and Gold in Paris

While in Paris I had promised myself that I would not make this trip about blogging. I promised that there would be no attempts to "scout out" streets and venues to serve as back drops to outfit posts. After all, this trip to Paris wasn't about fashion blogging - it was about something much bigger than that. Well old habits die hard it seems...But then again, wouldn't it be criminal to not create at least one outfit post?

These photos were taken right across the street from our apartment. Every one still had their Christmas decorations up (as evidenced by the bokeh), and there was a corner restaurant/bar on the corner that seemed to be open 24 hours a day. This guy was 15 steps away:
 We hadn't planned on being this close to Le Passe-Muraille, and actually didn't know that we were. I was astonished when I found out that he was quite literally on our street. When I was 20 I had spent a summer in Paris and this statue holds a very fond memory for me. Imagine returning to Montmartre after all these years and living right under him! It's nice to know that Paris hasn't forgotten me either.

Also - be sure to stop by Wednesday and Friday! (I've got a video set up for my next post!)


  1. I've never been to Paris, but I assume it's a lot like London, England. London is full of gorgeous people, men and women, dressed in the way that people who know how to dress, dress. Everyone is constantly checking each other out, in the street or Underground, both through admiration and competition. You have to have a style and signature personality to get by. To me, not even New York has the levels of panache existing in London, though that doesn't mean it's a good thing. I don't know how Paris stacks up, but I assume your unconditional love for it means there must be some kind of magic there that doesn't exist in London. Is that a fair deduction?

    Sorry Amber, but I can't classify Korn as rock 'n' roll. I get the impression that you were listening to Nu Metal while at high school, which makes you a product of when rock music in America started to go seriously wrong with Limp Bizkit, Alien Ant Farm, Papa Roach et al making superficial rock music. it's not your fault, just unfortunate generational timing. Lucky for you that you know how to dress because the American Nu Metal crowd, who are now in their late twenties/ early thirties, often struggle with style. You have defied an era.
    Can't believe you never went to prom! You're the closest connection I have to a typical American youth, but it's growing more atypical every day. Next you'll be telling me you never tried for cheerleader squad.

  2. Paris is magic and I think I'd be looking for outfit locations all the time if I was there on vacation, shame on me...glad you took a few outfit pics, they look great ! Kisses

  4. Amber, you had me giggling! LOL Another blogger took a weekend trip and declared she would not take any pictures. She's really particular and always uses her DLSR. Well she left it home. When she went away, she resorted to using her camera phone. She couldn't stay away from taking pictures. i think its in us all. That's why I laughed at what you wrote. You looked beautiful girl. I love your sweater! It's amazing how some things find their way :). Glad it found you.
