April in Paris: Clouds and Flowers


The Erdem pencil skirt from the runway, to the real world below. 
She did it; she did it. She came through once again. What would I do without the genius creator of The Vivienne Files? For several weeks now I say things to her like: second honeymoon in Paris; packing (in general) for Paris; dinner in Paris and now April in Paris -- and that's all I ever say. Then she takes it and runs with her signature style and flair.

Encore et encore, merci mille fois mon amie.

I hope Vivienne writes a book on wardrobe ideas someday soon.

That skirt would work in Central Virginia, too. Thanks so much for bringing Vivienne to us. I am using one of her previous guides to pack for a long weekend in NYC. Can't wait. Everything is perfect and I have room in my suitcase - perhaps to bring something back!

Hope you are well.

Vivienne is a genius at wardrobe planning.. This one is wonderful, as usual.

If I could speak French I would say "WOW!" and "Beautiful!" and "Amazing!" But I can't, so this will have to do:
Thank you Vivienne. Merci!
