Next up – Paris inspiration. I’ll take one of everything on this guide, thanks! Is it weird to want beauty products? I like giving & getting tiny luxurious things I might not spring for myself. That Huiles & Baumes dry body oil is absolute heaven, btw. I had a tiny sample from a Parisian pharmacy that is now gone & I want more!
Once again, some inspiration, some literal! I don’t think the Hermes camera or bracelet are actually on anyone’s real life wish list (ok, maybe some people) but a vintage camera was one of the best wedding gifts we received, and the camera that took the photos below is a 1970s Miranda. I’ve been meaning to track down or make a nice leather wrap bracelet since I got back from Paris, too.
Capes!! Whenever I think of Parisian street style I think of capes, for some reason. Easy to make! The first thing I ever sewed for myself (maybe age 13?) was a cape, it was brown wool gabardine and actually lovely, I should figure out where I last packed it up.
& museum passes – not just for Paris, for wherever you may be.
& for extra Parisian inspiration – I had some film developed from the trip. Yay! Whenever I hold film photos I’m mesmerized by the depth and texture, so so different from digital experiences. Maybe not so easy to tell from these scans, but trust me!
