I woke up one morning, et j'avais envie to go back to bed and turn the clock back in time dans mes rêves
but it was too beautiful outside.
So I decided to look out my balcony
and let my imagination transport me to an era where a woman would just swing open the doors into her armoire
and find something beautiful
and extraordinary to wear.
I stumbled into a deep slumber where everything morphed into a collage of stunning black and white memories of which the color comes only from each passing day, and where else other than Paris
would this adventure of dramatic contrasts between light and dark
and haute couture take place?
Even stepping out to the café pour une bonne tasse de thé avec une amie
would call for the occasion to slide on a string of pearls.
And if it rained?
All the better; misty days gave way to try the latest fashion
And once the weathered cleared up, all a girl had to do was call up a friend
decide what to wear
and take to the streets
Somehow, being well-heeled makes you feel good
and ready to seek new adventures
with the one you love.
I suddenly woke up to the light of a new day in my own world
and I'm ready to go out today and make my dreams come true.
Enjoy each day in style with someone you love!
