Ariane



In general, I am absolutely pleased to live in a provincial city, Strasbourg, rather than in the French capital Paris, although I really love the beautiful monuments, the cafés and the atmosphere, I can't see myself live there. The city is so big, the rents are so expensive, it takes hours on public transportations to go back home, I think that this place is somehow exhausting. But I sometimes regret not to be living there, only because it would be waaaay easier to develop my hobby (blogging!). Almost all the designers, famous or not, did settle in Paris, fashion events are taking place every week end and this would be such a great opportunity to meet new people. Yesterday, I got once again so frustrated to turn down an invitation to a show room. Plus there are so many foreign brands that opened stores, fashion magazines keep telling us about wonderful places, pubs, shows or private sales, but always only in Paris... Everything happens there! I feel so disheartened when I think about all the great things I could get if only I lived in the capital city. Please sncf (French railway company), lower your ticket prices. 


En règle générale, je suis absolument ravie d'être une provinciale plutôt qu'une parisienne. J'aime beaucoup cette ville pour les visites, l'ambiance, les beaux monuments, mais je ne me vois pas du tout vivre là bas. Entre le prix des loyers, les transports en commun et les trajets qui durent des heures, je trouve que cet endroit a quelque chose d'usant. Parfois pourtant il m'arrive de regretter de ne pas y habiter, tout simplement parce qu'il serait beaucoup plus facile pour moi d'y developper mon hobby (le blog!). La plupart des créateurs y sont installés, il y a beaucoup d'évênements pour rencontrer des gens, sans parler des tous ces endroits magnifiques pour faire des photos. Hier, j'ai dû à nouveau décliner une invitation à un show-room, ce qui m'a terriblement frustrée. Sans compter que beaucoup de super marques étrangères ont ouvert une boutique dans la capitale, que beaucoup de magazines de mode nous abreuvent de bonne adresses, de ventes privées, toujours à Paris... Décidément, TOUT se passe là-bas! Je me sens vraiment démoralisée en imaginant tout ce que je pourrais faire si seulement je vivais dans la capitale. Pourvu que la sncf baisse ses tarifs :p

  16. J'ai exactement le même sentiment que toi vis à vis de la capitale, je l'aime mais pourtant je ne me vois pas y vivre, mais maintenant que je m'en suis éloignée elle me manque terriblement, encore plus depuis que je tiens mon blog.

    Tu es toujours superbe Cécile, cette tenue est parfaite :)

  19. These photos are so magical!! I definitely understand your frustrations when it comes to living outside of the city. I'm in the same position as you! I always feel like I'm missing out on events and opportunities because I don't live in the city, but Strasbourg is a gorgeous place! Try and enjoy it while you're there. If you're meant to live in Paris, you will one day xx

    Have a great day,

    Je peux comprendre que tu sois frustrée de ne pas pouvoir vivre à Paris quelque fois c'est vrai que c'est facile de se sentir exclue quand on ne vit pas dans la capitale. Personnellement je n'aime pas cette ville donc pour ça peut aller haha
