I definitely believe that being born in Nice, France is the root of my “all-things-French” obsession since, well, I can even remember. And it just so happens that in July, I’ll finally be packing up those bags and jetting off to take the trip of a lifetime to the City of Love, Paris. I’m talking about living, breathing, and (of course) eating all things French. To me, I never wanted my “study abroad” experience to be anything ordinary. I never sought to spend my time overseas studying a subject I could learn here in the States. So that is how we (we–being two of my fashion major besties and I) molded the trip of a lifetime. Due to an obsession with anthropology, the study of culture, I’ve been waiting endlessly to learn a culture not via the internet or books, but by living it. And that is what we will do, and oh yes, I’m taking you with me. With my camera as my most powerful tool and Paris’ renowned architecture, cuisine, history, vernacular and arts by my side, I’m ready to share it with the rest of the world.
Oh, and how could I forget… the fashion! I’m ready to inspire all of you by sharing a taste of my favorite culture. Get ready for visual inspiration gone wild via my blog and my instagram account. But most of all, if you have a brand/product you’d like to see in Paris this summer (July-August 2014), feel free to email me at Jessi@thedarlingdetail.com so we can bring your darling gems to life in Pariee with me.
I’m a firm believer that learning about a different culture first-hand can teach you so much about yourself and the world around you. And that’s just what I’m hoping to do in the City of Love this July. It’s going to be a cultural learning experience of a lifetime! Excited to share and c’est tout for now, dahlings!
