We're On A Mission From God

What I wore in the pictures today were indirectly inspired by Moonrise Kingdom. I put together my "Suzie" inspired beret and my red jacket to create a "matching set" (even though what I wore wasn't the definition of one.) Also, I found this old danish bible which belonged to my great grandfather that my grandfather gave me the last time I saw him. In it were a bunch of pictures and newspaper clippings. It was quite impressing. I don't know why I didn't take pictures. I guess some things should stay.... mysterious? :P

By the way, sorry if my pictures have really soft focus. I accidentally used a weird camera option on my camera.

All The While You Lit Your Streets For Me

Final Paris post. To resume my experience I would say Paris is a wonderful, rich and historic city, but I would never live there. Normally, Fashionistas dream to live or work in this city, but I found something wasn't working for me. As the trip ended I figured out what was the turn off: Paris is a time-warp. The energy is all fixated on the past. There is no space for innovation. I would feel stuck in time if I were to live there. Therefore, I thought 10 days were plenty to discover the city of Lights.

Aux Champs Élysées

We met Ariane for the last time at the Café de la Bastillewhere I drank a pretty good hot chocolate. After our morning coffee, we took the metro to Notre-Dame (once again) to say goodbye to my aunt. My mom and I then jumped back into a train and went to l'Arc de Triomphe. We stood in front and saw people on the top of it. So my mom decided that we were going. From the top you could see everything. It was wonderful! We walked back down and strolled on the Champs Élysée where I found a huge H&M. I spent an hour there and came out with a multicolored "unicorn" dress and earrings. We continued our way East and arrived at the Tuileries which was so stunning. Finally, we did a surprise visit to the Louvre. Over all a fun, but exhausting day.

I'm sorry if I'm still annoying you with all my Paris pictures, but this post was just sitting there, not posted yet, so I had to do it once and for all. I will do one last post showing all my other pictures because there's simply too much to show. I could make hundreds of posts about Paris, but I think you would get sick of it.

Young Hearts Run Free

Today is a special day, the blog's 2 years old! YAY! It started as “Le blog d’imogen” then became “Miss Tutu” and became what it is now “Imogen’s blog”. (Yes I know. Not very original) I’m so happy I was able to keep it going so long. I hope you are still enjoying it. <3

I had a whole post planned out, but when I uploaded the pictures off my camera only 10 out of 80 pictures turned out. I'm a little pissed, but I managed to rescue a few. 

This year I decided that I'm going to try to make more clothing myself. So that should be fun and more original for you guys.

La Société M'a Définitivement Abîmé

Café de Flore. 10 o'clock. We met Ariane. I had a delicious Viennese hot chocolate. It was as if I were sitting with Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Hemingway and Brigitte Bardot. Absolutely lovely! After our coffee and chocolate, off to the musée d'Orsay. Bonnard, Vuillard et Misia! Breath taking. We finished our tour and went all the way to the hotel with my aunt to finally go to her friend's apartment. We had delicious pizza and then talked over tea. Ariane is leaving is leaving tomorrow so we're spending lots of time with her.
