It was with much sadness that I left Paris on Saturday.  Between Paris and London I had an excellent two weeks of eating, shopping, touring and socializing.  On my last night in Paris I decided to walk about the city, mainly along the Seine from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower and got some great shots along the way. ...

Atelier du Bracelet Parisien is one of the coolest and most unique stores I have ever been in.  It is located right off of Rue Saint Honore.  ABP's line of work is small handmade custom leather goods, mainly watchbands, however they do phone cases, iPod/iPad covers, belts and whatever else you could want.  The store and workshop are one in the same,...

Girls, this one is for you... I decided it a prudent use of my time to stop at the Christian Louboutin flagship store at 19 rue Jean Jacques Rousseau.  I had to see what all the rave is about with these red soled little ditties.  I will say, they are quite the shoe, damn sexy as well.  The construction and...

I was walking through the gardens one day last week on a tour and came across this couple.  At first I was laughing that the guy was already carrying things, then I realized how beautiful the scene was.  The arch in the distance is the arch that Napoleon had constructed for himself to get married under.  The building through...

I had just finished dinner and was on my way to the metro when I came across this couple.  I couldn't resist asking them if I could take a picture of them for my blog.  They looked so happy to be in each others company.  They also looked like they should be on the beach, they said that they...

I had just finished a serious afternoon chocolate and pastry bender while on a chocolate tour around Paris's beautiful left bank (yes, there really is an organized tour of about a half dozen chocolate and pastry shops, it was divine and can be found through a tour company called Viator).  All I wanted to do was lay down.  However,...

My friends, I have discovered something amazing.  A Spanish shoe company called Carmina.  Carmina was started in 1997 and is based out of Mallorca.  Until yesterday afternoon I had somehow never heard of this company, however, it was love at first sight.  Upon seeing the store at 4 Avenue de l'Opera I walked right in and what I immediately...

I like art and I love shoes. When these things are combined one should logically conclude that I would love the result.  In the case of Berluti shoes there is little love, but a lot of respect.  I do not particularily care for the shoes nor would I wear them at this point in my life.  However, I do believe they...

When you look at the picture below what is your first thought about how the man is dressed?  Is he dressed well or is he dressed poorly?  Either side could be argued for.  However, I would like to argue in favor of the former.  For the man pictured is no clown, he is a legend within the world of...

Some time ago I decided it would be in my best interest to take a vacation, so I decided I was going to go to Europe.  I arrived in Paris yesterday and am in Europe for roughly two weeks.  Upon arrival I was eager to get out on the town and explore.  Sadly, the powers that be, aka the...
