Packing for Paris!
I also wanted to share with you my clothing decisions for the trip, because of course I will have to look fabulous and hopefully blend in with the locals so as not to get scammed or anything. Eeek. It's funny how way back when, Paris set the standards for American style, but now I really feel like New York and LA are the trendsetters and we Americans pick up on things before the French. I remember hearing 2-year old crappy pop music last time I was there, and it seemed that no French women had picked up on the concept of wearing thongs with their back pocket-less jeans that were in at the time. They all had panty lines which looked so trashy to my teenage American eyes!
Anyway here's a layout of some of the things I'm thinking of taking. I'll be gone 15 days, but one and a half will be on an airplane or at an airport. I'm afraid I may be taking too much... what do you think? Take a look at the pics. I'm also bringing like six pairs of sunglasses in case they break, since I don't want to buy them there (everything is expensive, plus you lose money on conversion of USD to Euro), probably another pair of jeans than is laid out, and a tan trench coat. How does it look??
Am I bringing too much? Not enough? Aah!
