Last Night In Paris

Our hotel’s street, with beautiful architecture, just one block in from the busy Rue de Malesherbes. We’re leaving early this morning (HA it’s 1:20 am here and guess who isn’t sleeping) to fly back to LA. We’re already planning our next trip, but for now I really miss Angus and my own bed. Oh, and by the way, the modern building that you see in the background was once the site of the Countess Greffulhe’s townhouse.


At The Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris

Ernest Duez’s portrait has always been a fashion bestie of mine, and her petit chien is a bonus. I had no idea this painting was life size, definitely a fashion moment for me!

And here’s a close-up of the portrait:

The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris is a fascinating place to visit. Stay tuned for more!
