One of my friends just texted me about this exhibition in Paris. I have a free ticket courtesy of the Eurostar, I am so tempted to just pop on the train and go see this:
« La mécanique des dessous, une histoire indiscrète de la silhouette » présentée aux Arts Décoratifs du 5 juillet au 24 novembre 2013

You think I’m joking but I’m definitely not.
And although my heart will ache, and I will cry such bitter tears, I will never regret our time, ‘I will smile for we will always have Paris’.
This is a small section from my travel diary that I wrote during a moment at the Jardin des Tuileries where I was the unfortunate witness to the end of a love story. I couldn’t move because it happened so close to me and there wasn’t really an escape but the words that decorate my journal are slightly smudged. I think I cried for both of them.

I have one surprise post set for tomorrow morning but I’m shutting my laptop down and getting ready to lock up my flat. It’s 36f (2c) in London and supposedly set to snow tomorrow in Paris (knock wood it’s not rain this time around). Bleh.
I’m crashing at a friends house tonight so I can get to St. Pancras by 7:00 tomorrow to go through security. See you all in a bit!

I just realized that this is the first time since high school that I can take a photo in a museum (not that I am going to because I am a good girl who cherishes art), get yelled at by the Gallery people, and use the old “I don’t speak your language” excuse.
I have been waiting FOREVER to be able to use that. For some reason I just can’t seem to get away with it in London (imagine that).
Probably the only reason this post will be repinned by anyone is because this is the interior of the Opera Garnier in Paris, France. If I am able to stop by I will be buying all the honey.
Bonjour les amis! I’m off too Paris with my University on Tuesday for a quick two day trip. Les Arts Decoratif has Fashioning Fashion on (FINALLY!) and Musée d’Orsay has a lovely Impressionist exhibition that we are going to see.
On Wednesday we have a free day before we have to catch the train back to London later that night. My question is to my fellow costumers and admirers of art, does anyone know if there are any costumes exhibitions on or anything interesting involving costumes whilst staying inside the city?
