Paris Diaries 4: Trend Union


Bonjour! This outfit is the typical Parisian look(without the huge scarf lol). So initially, I was packing heels, jewellery and all sorts of extravagant items seeing that Paris is like the fashion heaven. So I thought yeah sure give them! Lol but I decided to do a bit of research on how Parisians dress and I was shocked at how simple the default dress code was. According to the articles I read, Parisians are super simple; wearing a lot of black, trainers, totes, scarves, berets and ‘no makeup’ makeup and yes it was true. On thursday, I attended a private trend forecast show called the trend union where the trends till A/W 16-17 were predicted! It was absolutely amazing. Afterwards, I went for some Nutella and banane crêpes of course(obsessed!) at République where I met up with my friends and we headed to Galleries Lafayette which I would describe as like a French Harrods perhaps? Yes and we had some spaghetti bolognese after! Ugh! I hate spaghetti but THIS! was fabulous. You may have guessed, but yeah I had two more crêpes before heading home finally.

I was going to wear this outfit with nude court shoes but I was feeling the Parisian vibe and went with trainers instead with my maxi coat of course. This look is very in right now, I mean, trainers will always be in but there’s a lot of hype about it right about now. Just got me a vibrant pair, you should too!

Oh and Parisians stare so much! OMG I had to start waving at them. Love the UK! Even if you’re somersaulting naked, you’d be ignored.

    Sweetheart, they were staring at you because you’re beautiful… Or you were being loud and obnoxious like us Americans sometimes are… Probably the first one.
