After spending an average of 30C plus over one month in heat waved Paris, I arrived into Sydney’s late winter. Sydney has just had a temperature sudden drop.., 6C at nights that’s quite a difference from a hot, humid Paris.
While in that ‘scarf capital’, I was unable to wear any scarf – due to the heat… However, I was happily scarfed up myself in Sydney, thanks to the low temperature and icy wind chill.
From walking through the glamorous royally golden gate of ‘Petit Palais’ in Paris, to strolling by this graffiti wall of Marrickville, Sydney… Did I feel any less of a princess? Or any less of the Parisian chic? – ‘No!’, and ‘No!’. In fact, I think Sydney is very fashion conscious. Great fashion is happening in Sydney from what I’ve seen.
Here I was, wrapped by this silver/grey scarf which I picked up from a bargain shop in Paris’ left bank. Coincidentally, on that day I happened to wear a Parisian brand ‘Frangins Frangines’ vintage dress. They melted surprisingly well together with the graffiti back drop, don’t you think?!
Said ‘au revoir!’ to Paris, followed by ‘G’Day!’ to our beloved harbour city.
Many thanks to fashion photographer Kent Johnson, who’s ‘light test’ shot captured this magic moment – my scarf was flying in the air, and I was thrilled to be returning to, home sweet home…
