Here are some Boston yummy bites. Hanging out in the chic Beacon Street area. Made me think so much of Chelsea or Notting Hill in London. Look at the flip side of my cardi. I totally love that tiger effect. Imagine this teacher writing on the board and the big cat murmuring at the students.
Financial District vibes.
Lots of folks were strolling in the park. Sweet mellow Sunday.
Boston and the sea have a long love story together.
The Boston Tea Party Museum.
Showing where I first gasped a breath.
There are pianos placed all around the city. People stop and do play a tune and two. What an awesome idea!
Tea party with me, anyone?

Boston is a real tea party place. I like the NYC-kind East Coast vibes – but with a higher sense of security and sophistication. I followed the Red Trail that takes you to all historical sights. I shopped some snazzy shoes and popped in at Mike’s, a famous Italian pastry shop. Picture below with the Sweets and the sweet.
With my chic travel companion Caroline. She joined the Mike’s goodie box carrying crowd.
Notice the canoli wide smile.
Lots of yummies at the indoor market place Quincy Market.
Refreshing times, away from the everyday hurdles with some dear friends.

Les Signatures Quebecoises organized a fashion sale. This was my third participation in the event and this year there was clearly the best trendy vibe in the air. Here are my faves…
I fell for earmuffs from Luna Furs. It’s amazing how warm they keep your whole head. As if you wore a hat. I skate away at the Central Square. And, I’ve been nicknamed Princess Leila.
Look at the chic top we found with my newest friend-in-town Elodie. I love hanging out with this girl. We connect in so many ways, so easily. I met Elodie thru my dear friend Sarah in Paris. Connections, those sweet little links… that end up changing our everyday life to something even more dulcet.
I also bought these feather-stone earrings from Rose Nanane. I had been looking for something black to fit my outfits – since it is always a good collecting color. These jewels have a refined and light feel to them.
Elodie and I found this leather trench so trendy, an extra love point for the shoulder studs.
So this was my fashion blast from the Big Pear – Quebec City! It’s not the Big Apple, but juicy alike. And trendy, too. Plus when you are a fashionista here, you get so much attention. It gives me my daily kick!
The temps are chilling down. I wanted to post this blast of color to remember summertime fashions and doings. First Marimekko in Finland.
The Eiffel Tower, my love, in July.
Dolce and Gabbana Fall Winter 2013
Yoga by the river.
French treats. Can never go wrong.
Ottawa art museum.
Red is a powerful color. Let its vibrancy bounce you to places, now this fall season more than ever.

The Walking Dead series inspired zombie walk came in town. It was a rocky ride as they dragged their tortured bodies across the city.
Happy harvest times ya’ll. I savored some delish red wine in excellent company. Then muched on sweet potato fries and crowned the Irish pub evening with a salmon salad. Until we hurried up to our apartment for some more fun conversation and tea. The night flew away. That’s what good friends do to you!

White is on the tapestry for this fall/winter season. And why not. Just like faux fur was last summer’s fashion tantrum, so to speak. I find it charmingly postmodern to shake up age old conventions. Bringing in that forbidden element. Kinda like this mini skirt that’s made of tiny plastic squares. When it wear it to ordinary daytime activities – the chic-shock effect that you know I so cherish – is usually sure to follow.
I see Camée jewelry getting bigger all around. I used to find it old-fashioned and a bit stuffy, but somehow my mind shifted. I inherited this brooch from my French mom-in-law. Such a precious keepsake.
Smile is your best accessory – never forget.
Jackie O chic.
You can see every day of your life as a show that you’re starring. You’re valuable. You create. Big or small, but you do. Every single day. This world would not be the same without you. You matter to me. And to many. Store that in your heart.
“You know that feeling when the shoes just lift your self-confidence… and you become the princess, for that moment.”
I miss dancing ballet. This is what I recently realized as I was standing next to a ballerina statue, mimicking its gorgeous pose. So, I’m coming up with an idea as in how to find a place to train. First by myself, and then… who knows. I don’t know if you know, but I did study ballet teaching way back pink-roses-when.
