“My parents always discouraged us from buying into the ‘trendy’ looks that the mall was pushing. No Abercrombie allowed in our house! I remember my mom taking me into Goodwill when I was very young. She made it a game ~ here’s $10, see what you can put together with that. From then on I was hooked to the thrill of the chase!” – Kelly Framel on vintage clothing for Dujour Magazine
NY Fashion Week is closely arriving and I’m also excited that I will be going to Paris for the first time! I’ve never traveled internationally alone and what concerns me is navigating around Paris because I don’t speak one word of French. However, it should be a fairly interesting trip where I hope to split part of my time touring the city and participating in random food excursions. I must thank Kelly for informing me of a great website that listed vacation rentals because I originally felt distressed searching for affordable lodging in the heart of Paris. I had been following Kelly’s blog, The Glamourai, for some time and I remember being tantalized by her style consisting of various shapes, textures, patterns, and colors. While she embraces different pieces effortlessly, I also find that she possess an amazing talent for creating beautiful self-designed jewelry – both of which are something worth checking out.
