I have a problem.
It involves “pinning” images to online inspiration boards and independent, four legged animals…
But then again, who can resist cats wearing berets and pretending to be Parisian?
Despite folks’s beliefs that my outgoing personality renders me a dog person, I’ve always been a cat person. And lucky for me, majority of the “Paris” population opts for this whiskered feline.
Including, Karl Lagerfeld and his lovely Choupette.
Now, if you haven’t heard of this adorable kitty, you’re going to have to do your own research on how this charming kitten stole the heart of Chanel’s creative director. (Her presence has been known since this past summer…)
Meeting Mr. Lagerfeld is on my list of “fashion world to-do’s,” but, now, I think meeting Choupette is starting to rank higher. Maybe in doing so, I can convince Mr. Lagerfeld to let me be Choupette’s “au pair.”
Thankfully, I’m in somewhat of luck. For it is known that Mr. Lagerfeld frequents Café de Flore (as I have). So, come springtime, I might be propping up at this infamous Parisian café
stalking watching for Choupette and her Karl.
Truth is, all I want is an apartment in Paris with a window, and a cat to join me while we sit on the ledge acting all introspective and French (Luckily, one of these should be coming true).
LOOK! C’est moi avec mon chat, BC. Note how my young, fashionable self pulled off that Santa hat. Sadly, I lost touch with my fashion sense until about college….
