Daily Covet: Marais for goop Open Toe Sandals

Named for the famous (and one of my favorite) neighborhoods in Paris, these Marais sandals for goop.com are the absolute cutest!

I know I’ve been posting shoes like crazy, but that’s what happens when you can’t fit into any of your clothes when your baby is almost a year old… but who’s counting? C’est la vie.

I love the cutaway tops and the almost mirror-like silver color. And unlike all the big, wide, hooker-y looking straps – even on couture shoes, I know – I love the itty bitty ankle straps instead.

Also, I’d like to point out that for several years, there were barely any shoes that I was loving.  So imagine my surprise when all of these gorge shoes came around – and they are wearable with everything!

Daily Covet(s): Roland Mouret

Roland Mouret’s fashion training consisted of three months of schooling at a Paris fashion college in the late 70’s.  You would never know.

Mouret’s dresses always catch my eye when worn on the red carpet, and strike me as a highly wearable piece of art and architecture… if you can afford it, that is.

Roland Mouret dresses don’t come cheap, as many start well over $2000.  It doesn’t however, cost anything to oggle these dresses online and that’s what I have been doing.

Take a look for yourself…

Paris in the Springtime

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.

Daily Covet: Paris in Color

Speaking of Paris… I ran across this book that is to be released on April 18th.

The book is 128 presumably beautiful pages of photographs taken by Nichole and Evan Robertson.  I can’t wait to see Paris at its colorful best right from the comfort of my own home (since I can’t be there, that is!)

I also can’t wait to get my name on the waiting list.  And so can you right here!

Paris in Color, amazon.com $11.87 (Book cover photo taken from author's website at littlebrownpen.com)
