lets lunch ....Le Comptoir Du Relais

A dear friend and fellow Photographer Beatrice  invited me to a Fantastic Restaurant 

The food was spectacular ! Here are some fun shots on the fly of our meal... Maybe It would be exciting to document more meals . Eating Vegetarian in Paris is an interesting experiment.... I find it fascinating their approach , not the usual grilled zucchini eggplant and peppers ... they think more seasonally and organic

Seasonal Grilled Farmer's Salad

Oeuf Mayonnaise
escargot ............

then ICE CREAM :-)

Ok I am just a little excited ....
It was amazing 

Saint-Sulpice Chic

I met Clémentine at Hervé Chapelier in Sant Suplice . I was drawn to her elegance and beauty but I loved her sense of humour
Clémentine is wearing Arthur and Fox suit, cashmere sweater with vintage Swiss army watch,Holland and Holland,and Guibert leather bracelets.
She loves to go around the corner for tailoring ,Across the street for Manicure / Pedicure and a block away from home for Dry cleaning and has her hair done by a girl friend who comes to her house. 
Her favorite Paris haunts are le Bon Marché, it's practical for clothes,  Fernand for traditional French cuisine and  ride's twice a week in Fontainebleau so she is not a night owl.

Kitsuné .....Paris

In Paris at the Kisuné store I ran into Raphael

He loves Diamant for tailoring , Atelier Cattelan for shoe repair and Royal Pressing for Dry cleaning. 

Raphael had some great recommendations  for Paris, definitely  Kitsuné  , La Bourse ou la Vie , great neighborhood french family restaurant and Curio Parlour was a fun late night salon.

Is there a story behind this outfit?
Actually, no. I work at Kitsuné and  woke up late that day, so I just took easy things, a white "T" and a pair of jeans, easy boots and the pocket square, for a little more dressy touch.

Eyes, I think. Well, I don't know in fact.
