The dress. When I was picking out a dress to wear in Vegas last year, I knew that I wanted something that I could wear again. The thought of spending a ton of money on a dress that I could wear once and then shove to the back of my closet didn’t sit well with me. Juliane brought up the idea of shooting me in it and I agreed â€”Â because, in reality, if I’d had the time and budget, getting married in Paris would have been the ultimate experience!

On our first full day in Paris, Gala and I awoke early and wandered around, trying to find a bakery. A few blocks from our hotel in Le Marais, we stumbled upon this wall. I wasn’t sure who most of the people were (though I did recognize Dali) or what exactly it was supposed to signify but I loved the graphic pop aspect to it.
Though I wore my wedding dress and headband, I didn’t want to make it look like I was off to get married (again!) so I dressed the look down with the modern additions of opaque black tights and wedges. The dress is actually fairly comfortable to wear since it’s a stretch cotton â€”Â judging from the tags, it’s from the 1980s.
Gala and I were totally enamored with the polka dot carpet throughout the Hotel du Petit Moulin and took full advantage of using it for photo ops. Thanks once again to Juliane for spending the day with us and capturing such great memories!
