Im terribly sorry i haven't updated in a very long time, but i have been internetless in Aix en Provance!
"X" as we call it (short for "aix", makes it sound like a post modern city), is a beautiful and inspiring place, that really shows the best of the south of france. The city is packed with renovated, old buildings, lovely high-in shops, big plazas with music and food, and the beautiful stylish french people.
Whilst i was there i made an observation of what the french women are wearing, mostly crochet tops, carrera sunglasses, an expensive handbag, and no bra. Also most of them were wearing lively colours (light blue, fucsia, yellow) probably to show off their tans.
The food there was also amazing, the cheese, and taponade (olive paste), were my definite fave!
The view from the Chateau i was staying at had an amazing view of le Mt. Saint Victoire (cezannes paintngs), and of le Chateau Picasso, where the artist Picasso lived the last few years of his life.
"X" nightlife is also something to see, mostly young people, drinking beers in a very chilled fashion, and there are people from all over (i actually met some danes, which was very funny)
So that was my little holiday, but i promise ill be at your full disposal now that im back in spain, with internet, and i can keep spreading the fashion love!
