When she sent me the link, I couldn’t help but think that this would make a great Diva’s On Parade Girl’s Trip! Or better yet, a yummy excursion to take while staying up on the Hill at ton_san_francisco” target=”_blank”>The Ritz for a Last Minute Valentines Getaway! But you’d better hurry as the exhibition ends February 17th and, dearest American Diva Readers, you wouldn’t want to miss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the gorgeous décor of the Petit Trianon without having to cross over the pond to the continent! For the first time ever, the contents of Marie Antoinette’s private residence on the grounds of Versailles are being shown together in an exhibition outside of France! Thus, francophones and cognoscenti alike are flocking to The Legion of Honor Museum to rub shoulders with Sophia Coppola wanna-be’s and to see the audacious, decorative arts behind the “toinette/index.html” target=”_blank”>Rumor, Scandal, Fame and Revolution”. Viva La San Francisco!


À plus tard Diva’s – I’m off to eat cake!

Paris Hotel Boutique

Lynn Goldfinger Abram, a San Francisco-based collector and antiques enthusiast, has amassed a wonderful assortment of items – from antique, jeweled crowns that bring out the princess in you, to a vast array of old hotel silver and a virtual treasure trove of well preserved items from the late 1800’s to the mid 20th century. These items make up her online catalogue at the Paris Hotel Boutique. Lynn has a great eye and buys what she thinks will “be in vogue” each season, stocking up on all those yummy things you see on the photo spreads of America’s best decorating magazines. Better yet, her prices seem to be shockingly reasonable. I might just order something myself and have it shipped to me in Europe.

Never fear, my dear European contingent, I haven’t forgotten you!

 

There is something for everyone as Lynn’s popularity is such that she already is shipping internationally as well as stateside! With the Euro as strong as it is against the Dollar, it might just make sense for you to buy your Lion King’s “circle of life”

Bonne Shopping et Au Revoir,

Bonjour Mes Amies, 

As Europe is my personal playground, my specialty is recommending fab flea markets and fêtes on this side of the pond. Most often, stateside readers simply must hop a plane and come “play with me” on “the continent” and I like to think that this is what makes me so darn loveable and why you’re all clamoring to read my latest post! That said, though a diva through and through, I also happen to be shockingly pragmatic at times and even I recognize that my stateside readers can’t spend their entire life with jetlag and need someplace more practical (and a tad closer to home than the Paris flea market)to shop for their home décor. For those times when you can’t come to France, then Paris will just have to come to you – in a manner of speaking that is.
