Of all the fantastic experiences and opportunities YouTube & blogging has blessed me with, one of the most amazing has been hosting a Meet-Up. I had my first one back in Novemeber, very last minute when I was in Paris working with Prada x Printemps covering their annual Christmas Windows unveiling. I has absolutely blown away by the number of girls who were there, who stood in the cold rainy weather to say a petite bonjour to me. It was one of the best days of my life! When I knew I was coming back to Paris, planning another Meet-Up was the first thing on my list. I decided to have it at the Tuilerie Gardens again, because it was such a great success (despite the weather) the first time. Luckily, this go-around we had amazing blue skies and perfect sunny weather. Meeting my subscribers is one of the most rewarding things about having a channel. To me, it's so important to connect with my fans, who I consider like my friends. Thanks so much to everyone who came! I was disappointed to not be able to have a second Meet-Up in Marseille as planned due to the transit strikes, but rest assured I will be back soon and I want to meet you all!
After the Meet-Up I had the pleasure of shooting with Marianne, a photographer and student based in Paris. Check out her Instagram & Tumblr. When I was planning on what to wear for the Meet-Up, I knew I wanted to wear something bright and bold, partially so everyone could easily spot me, partially because it's just what I love to wear! This gorgeous peachy-pink dress from Dolce Vita was just the trick! It was perfect for the warm weather and I love the textured eyelet pattern not to mention the adorable back cut-out (instant AC). I paired the dress with my new French chic trench from Comptoir des Cotonniers and my favorite comfy coral heels from Seychelles (that are conveniently 50% off on ModCloth.com right now!) A big thanks to Marianne for being such a sweet & lovely photographer.
