I am, like many of you, a fan of Christian Dior. The haute couture brand has mastered the feminine silhouette, designing clothes that are an equal mix of elegance and modernity. Last November in the Courbe Gallery at the Grand Palais … Continue reading
It’s starting to get pretty chilly in the French capital, and that means it’s time to dig up all of the clothes from the cave or hit the stores for some new knits. I’m loving the amount of bright colors I’ve seen around town this season! I can’t wait to spruce up my wardrobe with some bright blues and reds.
Prete-Moi Paris inspired me with her fashion collage post today! Here’s my idea of a fantastic outfit for the Paris fall season.
Have a wonderful week!
Perfection. The designs of Oscar de la Renta are stunningly feminine, with eye-catching colors and soft silhouettes. They compliment a woman’s figure. They are ageless and classic. For me, Oscar de la Renta is elegance defined. The variety of materials … Continue reading

It’s the year’s biggest red carpet event.
The Costume Institute exhibition at New York’s Metropolitan Museum designated 2013 as a tribute year to the punk era. We saw a variety of interpretations of the theme, as well as some classic gowns from fashion’s biggest names. This year marked some stunning displays of fashion, some of which you can see below. How amazing would it be to attend this event? Hoping to see my invitation in the mail for next year… xx PatriciaParisienne
I absolutely adore Kate Hudson.
I’ve been a fan of hers since Almost Famous, idolized her after How to Lose A Guy in Ten Days, and now just love seeing what she’s up to. I find her to be one of the most relatable stars, as well as one of the happiest. Her sleek sense of style, along with an eye for color, only enhances her natural beauty. Her absolute best accessory is, of course, her beaming smile. J’adore!
While double-tapping Coachella pics on Instagram, I stumbled upon this absolute gem. Kate Bosworth is officially Weekend 1 Coachella Fashion Goddess. Her outfit is simple, classic, and stunning. Her boots remind me of both Crockett & Jones beautiful Rushton boot, … Continue reading
Femininity and the Fifties
This year’s Ready to Wear Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2013-2014 collection was unexpected. While I adored this past fall’s pieces, what I saw on the models this Fashion Week was not what I was envisaging but still interesting to analyze. All of the models were sporting the same short black wig, only accentuating the sultry look of the collection’s pieces. Lingerie dresses were paired with tweed and boy-cut coats, creating the most chic walk of shame ensembles I have ever seen. As the models filed down the runway, there was a juxtaposition between a traditional notion of femininity and a non-conventional, borderline androgynous sense of it.
Below I included my favorite pieces for next season. The looks I posted pertain to the über feminine side of Marc Jacobs’ creations, which include soft, flattering tops and pencil skirts, as well as a fun halter number that shows a lighter side of the French fashion line.
What I loved about the show was the concept! The “grand hotel” theme was brilliant, with models coming out of different doors to march down the runway. American designer Jacobs added a cheeky final hurrah to the show; he came out of the “hotel room” door wearing his menswear line pajamas, as if he was a hotel guest with the models.
Who can resist a perfect Burberry piece?
London Fashion Week has just wrapped up, and browsing through the collections, I was mesmerized by the twists that Burberry has put on their trademark item, the trench. The varieties of color, fabric, and texture really made the collection stand out. I would absolutely love to stop by the Regent Street store and pick up any one of these classic models!
Tomorrow, I’ll be writing about London’s hottest new concept bar. Hint: it’s fast!
