Style Stalking at PFW

As I am studying abroad in Paris this semester, I took the opportunity to go wander around the Tuileries during fashion week, in the hopes of catching a glimpse of some style purveyors. I was one among many itching for a perfect shot, but mostly I enjoyed reveling in the joy that comes from such direct style inspiration (a much-needed respite from photos). Being in close proximity to this magnificent, renowned thing we call "fashion week" gave me the best kind of butterflies. I better understood that the exhausted phrase, "the fashion world," emphasis on "world," really does carry significance.

Since then, I have (physically, at least) re-entered the more mundane world that consists of homework, mid-terms, and cold weather. C'est la vie!

Currently loving Sasha Pivarova's cover and editorial in the October issue of Vogue Paris. I thought it was fitting to post, as I am currently studying abroad in the city of lights, and I picked up a copy of Vogue the other day for 5 EUROS (about $7)! One of the many perks of living here... 
Next up, a few photos I snapped during Paris Fashion Week. Obviously I didn't attend any shows, but I definitely stood around in awe of all the fabulous people that did.

Thunder Perfect Prada

This short film, an ad campaign for Prada's fragrance, has been a favorite of mine for some time, due to its stunning visuals (Daria included, of course), inspiring poetic narration, and subdued yet powerful mood. There is something irresistible about it. Although it was released in 2005, the video still makes me giddy each time I watch it.
