As some of you may be catching on, I have been spending a few days on the Euro side of the pond. It has been a week filled with rich meals (napolitana pizza, lots of champagne and salade nicoise) sun-drenched days and exquisite views. Needless to say, not too shabby…
Whenever I get to a new city, I explore (and well, Nice, France isn’t exactly new for me as I lived here for a summer…a shout out to my fellow Hofstra kids…and now it is a favorite vacation spot). I have been known to slap on my shoes and pound the pavement with a bounce in my step, setting out to look at the style lurking on the streets.
The best part about exploring a city is seeing new and interesting fashions as you walk around and here are a couple of things I have noticed since hitting the ‘rue’ in Nice.
The Damier Azur and Damier Ebene Canvas Louis Vuitton Bag: I swear, I have probably seen 35 of these bags since I stepped off the plane. Maybe that doesn’t seem like a ridiculously high number, albeit to me it does and believe me this bag is every where and on all types of woman, young and old alike. I find it interesting as in most other places I have been to recently (eg: NYC, TO, MTL) the prevalent Louis bag has been the classic Monogram Canvas bag.
Cool watches: I am kinda obsessed with watches, I think I should come clean. It seems the folks over here are just as into it as I am. Well, when I saw these deliciously juicy over sized watches at a souvenir shop in Place Massena, naturally I wanted one in every color.
Glasses Strand: Standing in line at a store waiting to try some stuff on, I got the nerve to ask this girl if I could take a picture of her glasses strand. I believe she was from Scandinavia and she eagerly wrote down the name of my blog (having Scandinavian readers is pretty coooool!). How retro-awesome and decadent is this totally unexpected accessory?!
So much to see and I am far from done checking it out…
Bisoux from the Riviera,
