Being in Paris, Fashion shows are always on my wish list. (I love fashion shows, a favourite pastime of mine, dating back to desiging clothes...) Here we saw the most Avant Garde show that I have ever seen.'A Vintage take on fashion.'

Strolling down to the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, I realized very quickly - the French ooze with style. It seems as easy as breathing fresh air. I watched and observed in awe...
Someone that keeps me on my toes with regards to the Parisienne fashion is the very famous Kamel Lahmadi of Style in the City. http://www.styleandthecity.com/street-style-paris-fashion-week/mon-parcours-artistique/utiliser-mes-photos/
" I love your work Kamel!"
Be warned, you could become addicted to pop in to see what is happening on the streets of Paris!
What a FaBuLoUs Surprise!
Upon our first arrival in Paris, the soooooooo famous Eiffel Tower was lit up with tens and thousands of lights, like a diamond brooch against a black velvet sky! My heart skipped two beats!
Our Parisienne cabdriver added to the ambiance of that special moment, giving us a passionate description of the three women in his life, Parieeee, as he pronounced it and his gorgeous girlfriend and adorable wife!
Hubby and I looked at each other and burst out laughing. We have arrived in France!
"Dear Cabdriver, thank you for your friendly advice, I never got your name but won't ever forget the little titbits you shared with us, they became memories that I'm now going to share with the world."

"Falling in love with Paris and especially the South of France on my first visit there, it felt like being in an old movie, where everything was choreographed so perfectly, with so much attention to detail!
A trip that changed my life forever!
Passionately living and sharing the charm of this little shop, I want to thank my clients, family and friends that have supported us over the last six and a half years, since you add the sparkle to Moi!"
Moi at Duncan Yard, Hatfield, Pretoria is the older sister and last year the younger sister Moi at Cobbles Centre, Parkhurst, Johannesburg joined the family.
Viola! A family team this is, with both my girls, after each studying and receiving degrees in their fields decided to focus and becoming active partners in Moi.
Not to forget mon marie, my hubby that helps to keep us girls grounded! And Grandmere knitting our beautiful tea cozies....
