Paris Does Couture

Well, here we go again with Couture Fashion Week in Paris.  I can hear all the chatter late night at Hotel Costes and the bartenders' glasses at Le Candelaria (taco joint), and don't forget Lockwood's for an after, after dinner drink.  There's also a little shopping at stores like Colette, The Broken Arm, and Coincidence!  I am most interested in the fashion and wasn't let down by Dior with great caps with fur pieces plus the great mix of patterns.  Giambattista Valli was a dream with short dresses in baby pink, pantsuits with ostrich trim, and simple yet chic halter and ruffled sequin catsuits.  Don't forget Schiaparelli with playful furs in colors of rose, tons of floral, and a touch of shocking pink as a finale.  Can't wait for more!
