Every item of clothing in my closet is the star of its own story. Many years ago my husband and I traveled to Paris on the heels of a traumatic life event. Our dear friends encouraged us to get out of LA in the hopes of leaving our troubles behind us. We stayed in a beautiful apartment belonging to a very generous, very successful screenwriter/director, situated directly above Café de Flore. The trip was just the panacea we both needed. And along the way I bought this Étoile Isabel Marant dress from Le Bon Marché.
Every time I wear it I’m reminded of that wonderful trip and I feel like the cosmopolitan world traveler I imagine myself to be, even if those jaunts are all too few and far between. I think it’s time for another…!
