Paris Haute Couture Week came, it went, and it made us swoon. But as anyone who has been to (any) fashion week knows, sometimes the looks are just as good off the runway. Here, Laura Mercier ambassador and Song of Style blogger Aimee Song gives us the exclusive low-down on her crazy PFW, including the looks she wore, the parties she went to, and the snacks she ate. (Hint: Mostly macarons.)More
Day One of Paris Fashion Week and I'm up super excited to get ready for Dior Couture. I finished breakfast at the hotel and I'm just so antsy for the show so I already put on my shoes! When I'm in Paris, I don't really like to sleep much anyway. There's just too much to see and do and you only have so much time. Also, early in the morning is the best time to sightsee because there are no other people around, so you can get much prettier photos. My favorite way to get around the city (when I'm not in a hurry or wearing Dior shoes) is to ride a bike, but if you've been to Paris, you know that the streets are pretty crazy. So the morning is best for that as well because you can actually look around while you ride instead of trying not to get mowed down by a vespa.
Time for Dior! I'm super obsessed with these lucite heel boots, and I've always been a fan of sleeveless turtlenecks. The collection was so beautiful and was the most perfect way to start my first-ever couture week. After the show, I explored as much of Paris as possible before going to a Kenzo party.
