Comfort was my main goal when I was packing for Paris and I spent most of the weekend in one of my favorite jersey dresses, a big woolen scarf and boots made for walking.

sometimes too much is just enough

This weekend’s sewing project is finished! I was happy that the weather stayed just warm enough for me to wear my new dress on our way to see Woody Allen’s latest. I found the fabric already over a year ago but never quite knew what to do with it. All those dogs and bling bling seemed a bit too much. But I actually love my new tunic dress; and there is no need to accessorize! And P.S. I loved the movie Blue Jasmine too!

Sunday in Paris

Let’s start with this outfit from last Sunday. The weather in Paris was brisk and cloudy, perfect to take my new leather pants out for a walk. I had actually been looking for a good pair of leather trousers for months, but couldn’t find them anywhere in Dublin or in any of the online stores I desperately browsed through. And while I wanted a beautiful pair in soft lamb skin, I didn’t want to break the bank either. And finally one day on my way home I found that the perfect pair was waiting for me in one of the thrift stores on Caple Street. I had them altered at Fitz and altogether spent less than 50€ for a perfect, tailored pair. Happy happy! I got a new favourite jacket from Helmut Lang at the sales at Printemps and I love it! …
