Paris in Stripes

Confession:  When I saw this dress in the store I had premeditated thoughts of it twirling under the Eiffel Tower whilst holding an environmentally responsible, yet chic, canvas bag of baguettes and peonies.  Every girls' "Free People" photo shoot dream.  Hmmm...

While the accessories didn't make it, (or hairspray for that matter- sheesh!) the dress did have a wonderful time in Paris!  Channeling my inner Audrey Hepburn proved to be a challenge, especially since my hair was fighting a losing battle with the weather gods.  (And because of an accidental Marilyn Monroe moment involving me, a subway grate, and a motorcyclist)  But who cares, we were in Paris!  C'est la Vie!



Dress: Express, Belt: Express, Shoes: Charlotte Russe (Similar), Sunnies: Coach (Similar)







To Paris with love, xoxox


Stay tuned for What's Haute in Hillsboro: Paris Edition


What would you wear under the Eiffel Tower?

Linking up with IFB project #109

    I envision being in Paris on a cool evening... wearing skinnies, lace-up brogues a graphic tee and blazer (perhaps a military style one)
