Marie Antoinette

The Laziest Sunday

I missed Place Settings yesterday, so I wanted to make up for it with this picture of the Eiffel Tower from my friend’s kitchen window. Sometimes one of your best Paris friends is leaving the city, possibly permanently, so you get everyone together and have a party and watch the sun rise from the roof and then Sunday is not for home cooking or fancy brunches and pretty photographs, but for sleeping and pretending that you were just part of that scene from Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette where they all party through the night.

Know what I mean?

To see:

  • A lovely recreation of my favorite scene from one of my favorite movies over on The Briar Rose Blog (a recent blog discovery for me, but I love it; I highly recommend spending an entire Sunday perusing its pages).
  • Early color photographs of Paris on Kottke. I like to think that the world actually existed in those saturated/yellowy hues in the 1910s and 1920s.
  • Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel is out on iTunes this week, and if you like fashion at all and missed it in theaters, I definitely recommend watching it.
  • As a short person, I am pretty much always thinking about wide cuffed jeans.
