I’m so needing a vacation right now, and so is my husband, who works too hard.
There’s no place I’d rather be than in Paris. I love Paris.
I was there in 2004 with my mom, and we stayed at this boutique hotel near the Louvre, called the Normandy Hotel. It was literally around the corner from the wing, in which Napoleon III’s apartment stands.
It was also a stone’s throw from the Place Vendome, the Opéra and the shops on the Rue de Rivoli. We could take a pretty good hike to the Champs Élysées or an even braver hike to the Marais – my favorite neighborhood. What could be better than Paris in the Springtime with the one you love? Right. Nothing.
Faux Croc Skull Knuckle Clutch By In's, ahalife.com $115
McQueen had been doing this kind of design for years. It’s been walking the red carpets and showing up in the “clutches” of the overexposed, like Kim Kardashian.
My first thought was, what? Yuck! But then I took a closer look, and I think I’m actually liking it. An evening bag, with an edge. The juxtaposition of classic crocodile (albeit faux) and rocker chic skulls made into a convenient handle, is kind of making this usually preppy girl want to “rock it.”
While it’s probably not perfect for your law firm’s Christmas luncheon. It is perfect for a night out with your friends, or for the grand opening bash of a swanky and dark venue with a hip vibe. Just make sure you have vampy dark nails!
