A few weeks ago our (Mike & my) godson was baptized and for the occasion all guests were asked to wear “Tracht”, which is the traditional Austrian clothing – also called “Dirndl” and “Lederhosen”. Since I rarely get to wear my Dirndl I was more than happy about the dresscode. Now, I know this isn’t really as traditional as one may think, but I kind of love the more modern take on something traditional. The apron has little rhinestones on it, and paired with my favorite white peplum blazer, vintage bracelet & Miu Miu glitter heels I felt dressed appropriately for church and the festivities, while still staying true to my own style! What do you guys think about this slightly different look?
This week has somehow flown by so fast and I don’t know where all my spare time went! I’ve been meaning to share some more impressions from our incredible Louis Vuitton experience in Paris with you, but all of a sudden it was Thursday already… BUT I just now had the chance to go through the rest of my photos from last week’s travels and am finally able to share the second day of our #LVsecretplaces journey with you guys: Visiting the Maison on Champs Élysées and the Cabinet d’Ecriture. Enjoy!
Last Friday our new rug (remember THIS post??) finally arrived and I am super smitten with the way it has transformed our living area!! It was quite an ordeal to get this rug since the first order was cancelled by Westwing and then when this one was available I thought it was too small. But I decided to take a chance on it and am sooo happy with the end result. I actually prefer the pattern of this rug over the one I had initially ordered and I am also glad we got a smaller one, since anything bigger probably would have been way too much for the space! I plan on taking a few better pictures later this week and will have a detailled post coming up in a few days.
As you guys know, I travelled to Paris last week with Anna, Carola and the lovely people of Louis Vuitton to start our journey of discovering their #LVsecretplaces. Our first stop was the Asnières, also considered the heart of Louis Vuitton, where the traditional workshop and the family maison are located. The whole place had such a magical atmosphere and it was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
“It’s in 1859, four years after the birth of the Maison, that Louis Vuitton decided to move his production site from Paris to Asnières. He settled there with his family in 1878, building houses in the garden surrounding the workshop, one of which, with a brick façade, still exists today and was also home to his son Georges Vuitton, who moved there in 1892. “
