Back In LA…

After an early flight out of Charles De Gaulle Airport, we finally arrived in LA 10 1/2 ours later and none the worse for wear. In contrast to the 40-some degree rainy weather, LA is clear and 90 degrees- quite a contrast and needless to say, all our winter clothes will go into storage until the next time we head for Europe. It’s good to be home and now begins the process of sorting through all the treasures that we acquired during our week in Paris. Oh, and catch up on the jet lag… 😚

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:

Ernest Duez (1843-1896), Splendeur, 1874

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