To begin with, this is not what I wore for Paris Fashion Week. This only happened to be what I wore on a hot night when I had time for a quick photo shoot. It was 37 degrees (99 F) that day and pretty much all of the days in Paris and let me tell you, in a city like Paris where air doesn’t move at all it’s not fun. Add trying to look your best for Fashion Week to that and it’s pretty much mission impossible. I managed, somehow, but people around me at the shows were sweating like crazy.
I got this hand painted Tommy Hilfiger jacket during Pitti Uomo in Florence and I tried to make them make one for me that said Tommy + Tommy = True, but they only had 4 options to choose from so I guess I shouldn’t complain about this one really. It was nice of them and perfect for those “cold Parisian nights”.
Standing there on Rue de Buci, which is one of the liveliest places in Saint Germain surrounded by both tourists and local Parisians alike, I felt like getting a cold drink from someplace nearby, but nope, I had to pose and avoid a lot of photo bombing people who wanted to be in the picture. I truly love the atmosphere on this street though and it’s a must for you to visit whenever in Paris. It’s busy from breakfast until 3 am basically and I spend most of my free time on this street alone.
