Outfit Post: French 80’s Style

The other day, I lamented on Facebook that I miss Paris. My friends, being the awesome people they are, came up with a list of things I could do to make me feel like I’m back in my favorite place. Eventually, we hit upon doing a 80’s style post since Parisians love their MC hammer … Continue reading

Outfit Post: Olive and Orange

Lately, I feel like my life is in holding pattern: waiting to pack, waiting to move, waiting to get on with things. Which means, I’m bored. Insanely bored. And a bored Dawn is not a good thing. Usually, I channel my boredom into writing or knitting, but that would require me to be home. And … Continue reading

Outfit Post: Toeing the Line

Bug is going to do a post for me later this week on Le Grand Metro Ride, … Continue reading

Outfit Post: Sunday Brunch in Paris

  Don’t call it a come back… A “Mom Wore This Post”!* Until I arrived in Paris, I believed no city could possibly love Le Brunch as much as San Francisco. I was soooo wrong. Brunch is a way of life here and restaurants serve nothing else between 11am and 4pm. This is a little … Continue reading
