A Day in Paris, D.C.

I’ve often been called an old soul.  When I see photographs or films of women from the 1940’s-1960’s, walking through New York or Paris, I feel a bit nostalgic as if I lived through those eras myself.  How I wish.  Fashion was so detailed, so thought out, so divine.  Each outfit told a story. Those were the days when women would dress up to go to the market, with a sense of passion, pride, and purpose.

After being interviewed at FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar about the salon for an online tv show, I spent the afternoon in Georgetown with my dear husband, and it felt like we were transported to Paris, in the late 40’s, for the day. We love coming into the city every now and again. D.C. has European charm, and if you get into the nooks and crannies of Georgetown, and walk along the C & O Canal, you will be transported to an old world.   We ate lunch at Cafe La Ruche, and then went for a stroll. Since I’ve started my blog, he has been an amazing help with taking pictures, and I’m so thrilled with what he captured on this outing – the retro/vintage charm that I often live in, in my daydreams.
