I am in Portland right now and it is freezing here let me tell you. Although, most people would not characterize the weather as freezing right now but this California girl is in desperate need of warmth right now. Being here is reminding me of my trip to Paris. I thought I would post the last of my pictures while I wait at the Ace Hotel for my next flight out. Next destination…Wisconsin…yes, more cold.

The last of my pictures were taken by my talented fiance. He has a wonderful eye and creative mind. Together we make a great team.  These set of pics are more for inspiration. We saw lots of interesting things walking around, cool people and lots of trends. Check it out!

Cool artwork at the Surface to Air store in Marais.

Kids apparel at Surface to Air. I really love their graphics. Great Inspiration!

Love these beautiful chairs at Merci.

These ballerinas were so adorable. Too bad they were home slipper ballerinas.However, I love the color and details.

Lots of boots. However, pointed boots was the hot trend . Pointed boots of all types….booties, riding books, and dress boots with heels, but pointed lasts. I am starting to see that more and more in the U.S.

Overall, my trip to Paris was amazing. Definitely recommend Paris as a trip for the holidays, trend inspiration, shopping, and culture. Looking forward to my next trip to Europe! In the mean time, lots of US trips coming up. It’s fun to get away and be inspired when working on a project. Next big trip I was considering Tokyo until it’s latest tragedy…may have to put that off. Perhaps something new such as Australia, South America, or maybe back to Europe. Any suggestions?
