All that glitter is gold

After a one-week hiatus from the blogosphere, I'm back with new inspirations. I spent the last week of April in Paris, the official "république du chic" (in my mind at least), and have gotten some fresh ideas along the way. One of the many things that caught my eyes were the omnipresent opulence of the city's past glories: be it the magnificent Pont Alexandre or the impressive Opéra Garnier, they are all masterworks of French architect and design. Here I share the sights and outfits that are inspired by the City of Light.
