Monique Lhuillier Fall 2013 – Strapless Emerald Green

Happy Friday!  Happy Fashion Friday!  We just came back from Fashion Week, and as you can imagine, it was an amazing experience!  We’ve been to NYC Fashion Week a number of times, but truly, it never gets old!  There was so much inspiration and creativity… And of course, beautiful fashion!

Our heart skipped a beat when we witnessed Monique Lhuillier’s collection sashay down the runway!  Her jewel tones and use of this year’s official color, emerald green, was truly breathtaking!  And her RED jeweled gown:  A-Ma-Zing!

Jenny Packham’s collection was also gorgeous!  It was decadent, intricate and the details are just impeccable!  Definitely, a collection fit for any princess! Finally, Carmen Marc Valvo, was another favorite!  The collection was simply stunning… The fit of the dresses, the details of the fabrics – OMG!

Here are some of our favorite gowns… We paired our pics with some of the runway shots so you can appreciate the detail and let your heart skip a beat with the gown! Any that you are loving?  Would love to hear what you think, and we can’t wait to receive these and more Fall 2013 fashions in the store!  Stay tuned!

Have a great weekend!

Paris Love!

Yay, tomorrow is Lovers’ Holiday… Otherwise known as Valentine’s day!  As you can imagine this is one day we HEART at Chic Parisien!   Firstly, it is an extremely popular day for couples to get engaged.  And we have to admit Valentine’s Day engagements are our favorites, they are always so romantic!   But secondly, and more importantly, it is a day to celebrate LOVE!

We know many cynics don’t enjoy this day anymore, but at its core, it’s really such a lovely occasion!  It is the one day of the year that is meant for couples to celebrate their love for each other! We say, who cares what cynics think…Take a moment, say I love you to that special someone, be romantic, be corny, have fun, and definitely, take advantage and smooch your lover as much as you want!

And just in case you need some last minute inspiration, here is a roundup of great Valentine’s Day goodies from around the web… Happy Lovers’ Holiday!
