GET CARRIED AWAY


felt the tears come, finally I was there ...

Yes, I finally got to where Carrie Bradshaw walked into her hotel as a perfect Parisienne. Yes I am an extreme SATC fan and I can’t help it. I have seen the DVD box countless times already but I still cry at the last episode.

So when I was in Paris I just had to go to the hotel where Carrie stayed, and I also had to go to the Dior store where Carrie fell. It sounds a bit crazy, but it felt good to be there knowing she was there too.

So, in a strange way you want, no, you must identify yourself with Carrie Bradshaw. We all want her life (and her shoe collection, of course). ''I couldn’t help but wonder'' why do women want to identify themselves with others?
You could say we are not satisfied with how we are, or how we live. But the reason for me, and probably many women, is that you sometimes just want to daydream. Getting carried away with a beautiful scene for a moment and really feel what, in this case Carrie, feels ...


So men, let us women now and then swoon away by a good film, because we really need it…

Going to Paris soon? I have some nice addresses for you to shop for some good vintage clothing!

The shops called MAMIE BLUE and MAMIE are well known spots for pure vintage. Actors, artists and many fashionable parisiennes go to MAMIE BLUE and MAMIE for a nice outfit.

Some pictures to get you in the vintage-mood!



Where to begin?!


I desperately needed a bag

Shoes, shoes, shoes, shoes, shoes, shoes....


This is at MAMIE, how cosy is this shop?! You can look there for hours...





Big Kisses,

Time Traveling



What is it about us people that we dream about earlier times? The past is interesting to us and we are very drawn to it.


But, why is that? Is it because we are not happy with the present? Or is it because we can fantasize and dream endlessly about the past?
It would probably be the last option. I ‘m happy with the present, but the past has something magical. Something you won’t experience in your entire life, unless your life exists of watching old movies and wishing your life becomes one…
But is this phenomenon recognizable in every era? I mean, what about the people who lived in the ‘60s, did they want to live in 1900? It seems like we are not totally satisfied with the present and you hear people say ‘’ back in the days, sigh’’. I wish I could proof that’s not true, but I must say I also love the charms of the past.
So back in Paris I thought: ‘’I want to see Paris in a different era’’. Unfortunately I didn’t bring my time machine with me ;) so I had to see it through the lens of my lovely Hipstamatic camera. Once we walked through the corridors of metro station Rivoli, we were hearing this lovely music. For that moment I felt like I traveled trough time; then I pressed record…
