Bonjour, Paris

March 06, 2017

Since it is Paris Fashion Week, I thought I would do a post about my time in Paris. I had never been to Paris before, so everything was new and exciting for me. I didn't plan anything because I was in town for a wedding. Read more, HERE. Thanks to friend and her family, they had everything organized and I managed to see a lot while I was there. I'll have to break it up over several posts. 

Sometimes I am not sure how I feel about Paris, but I know how I feel about reflecting on my time there with my South African family- happy! 

First impressions: The city itself is beautiful, romantic and dreamy, but I am still trying to figure out why someone climbed into our flat on the second floor in the wee hours of the morning. Thankfully, my friend's mummy and I sent him packing without even getting the police involved. It was definitely scary, but we know how fortunate the situation did not escalate. Never mess with Africans and Jamaicans, never! Make sure to be safe and aware of your surroundings if you ever visit Paris because all isn't what it seems to be. 

Fashion show: The day before the aforementioned incident happened, we left our flat in the first arrondissements to grab breakfast in the most casual athletic leisure clothes, only to find out a fashion show was being held around the corner from our place. Knowing it was Paris Fashion week, we had hoped to stumble upon one of the shows. We hurried to go and check out what the big fuss was about and wow... It was Paris the Dries Van Noten's show. We stood around to check out the arrivals and departures and see if we would catch some human sightings :) Everyone attending the show were dressed to the nines and we had not a care in the world about our attire. It is all fashion! Everyone is wearing athletic leisure these days, so I guess we sort of invented it :)

My philosophy is, if I never have to see these people again, then why should I worry my pretty little fro about my clothes. It was great to be all up in the mix and later on, in the afternoon, we got dolled up for the wedding ceremony. I wore colors, I never thought would go together and Liesl was a vision in black and gold -tres chic

Open container law in Paris: Public drinking is completely acceptable. Oui, Oui!  You can drink by La Seine, on the steps of Marmonte, and in areas surrounding the Effiel Tower. It is acceptable to consume booze at any hour of the day or night. However, be careful not to drink too much, then you may have some problems. Also, no drinking is allowed inside the Eiffel Tower area, so don't bother trying. You can eat and drink on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower at 58 Tour Eiffel if that tickles your fancy. 

Thank you for reading this post, please leave your comments/thoughts below section below. More Paris posts to come in the future, au revoir till next time :) Lxxx
