But anyway, so far I've spent 3 days in Paris and it's already been pretty awesome. I went to visit Champs-Elysees and L'arc de Triomphe on day 1 and saw lots of beautiful people - both pretty girls and heartbreakingly handsome guys - dressed extremely chic (which gave me a bout of insecurities). Following days I visited a typical neighbourhood Farmer's Market where they sold extremely fresh homegrown fruits and vegetables, cheese, meat and everything in between (photos to follow!) and then it was a first venture into being paparazzi for Paris' Men's Fashion Week. I covered the guests at Songzio and Rynshu shows.

There's nothing that I hate about this city (save for some of the immigrants from Albania and Africa etc that are pickpockets or troublemakers). Paris is so full of culture and everyone is so well informed on taste in general that even the smallest bakeries or even butcher shops are decorated nicely with good wall displays and small rustic figurines. The Paris street is filled with short little apartments that were built ages ago but so well-preserved and rustic. The people are all dressed extremely chic - even old ladies and old men, some on wheelchairs - are dressed very well. The Paris women is unafraid to mix up bold colors, and if they feel lazy, they'll just wear a shirt dress or a denim dress, accessorized with a pair of shades, a good handbag and beaded sandals or espardrilles. I swear even the advertisement posters in the metro stations and on the streets look extremely artistic and half of the time they're publicizing yet another music, dance, art or cultural event.
Move over New York - I need to live in Paris now. I shall marry a Parisienne and have super cute kids.
