Cote de wonderful

Cannes is one of those cities you instantly fall in love as a fashion addict, so it was really a crime that I had never been until now. Back from wonderful France now I'm wearing all my new clothes and can't help but brag everytime someone compliments on how cheap it was. That's another thing, while strolling down the Croisette you can purchase the most expensive designer clothes you can also head into the heart of the city and make bargains the price of a baguette. In France of course you willl see al the tourists run aroudn in the cheap items but once home, people will compliment on your extravagent outfits and you can breezily say,  "Oh it's from France." I really couldn't believe it when I bought my new sandals for $9 and had to check twice the currency was correct and that the full stop was in the right place, but no the price was right. Very right indeed. Although at times I had to admit I had to pinch my nose because things did smell pretty cheap in the masses they had, once out on the street the shoes and dresses looked gorgeous. So I was taught yet again, while some things may look worse on second glance, things from Cannes rarely do.

Another thing I'm so grateful for is the french love for underwear. I have never seen such fine underwear to such low prices. Color, lace and silk all for minimal prices. The variety delighted me and I spent forever digging myself through all of the different designeres, from Agent Provocateur to Princess Tam Tam. 

While London and New York are beautiful, the only thing they can't offer is a coffee and Macaroon at the ocean after a strenous day of power shopping. I have yet again discovered that the price does not reflect beauty and while it does affect the quality here you just shop new every season and you don't even have to feel bad because it's so cheap. So if you decide to become a one season only person visit Cannes and you will never have to or in some cases be able to wear the same things twice. You can make anything work and the long walks at the beach with your new french lover will even burn off all the wonderful cake, ones got to try :)

Still loving fashion,
