Fierce,

This isn’t my first time slaying in Paris, but it was my first time experiencing in Paris like a local. By local, I’m referring to taking public transportation, going cafe and French food trip, and avoiding the hotels.
If you’re thirsting for adventure and wanting to take the plunge into something new, I highly recommend you experience Paris like a local.

When the first time I went to Paris 2 years ago, I’m guilty of being an avid Uber user everywhere I go but this time I want to try something different and just be open to new possibilities while walking the streets of Paris. (Fierce Tip: Be extra careful with your bags and gadgets)

PARISIAN CAFES:

Parisians love their baguettes and croissants (and I do too!), so visiting multiple cafes is a must. Their cafes are on another level with the tables so tightly packed that it can be hard to get seated. However, there’s so much character and life in every cafe from the decor down to the pastries. And they’re all so singular with none being like the other.

TAKE THE METRO

Uber is the easy way out. However, If you want to experience being local you need to take public transportation. I love taking the metro because I get to see different kinds of people and unexpected moments. When you enter the metros in Paris depending on which you enter, they’re almost museum-like, displaying works of art. You’ll find some encased in copper like the Arts et Metiers or paintings and illustrations of French history.

I feel like these days most people set off to Paris with a list of places to see, museums to explore, and neighborhoods to shop. I don’t think you get to soak in a true Parisian experience by doing this. If you want to experience Paris like a local, I’d recommend you stashing away all those Instagrammable hot spots and enjoy the lovely architecture and culture around you.

Slow travel in Paris last Fashion Week has helped me to appreciate more Paris in general. I get to experience how to be like a local by walking and just looking around. It gives me the confidence to walk anywhere, visit different shops, cafes and restaurants knowing that I will learn and experience something new. I’ve learned slow travel during my last trip to Sa Pa, Vietnam last February. I find it useful when it comes to my work because I tend to always just focus on the fashion side of my trips instead of appreciating the city and the people.

It’s a romantic city to get lost in and walk through with tons of cafes to just marinate in and people watch. Take advantage of slowing down and watching the city go by before you. Stay Fierce!

Fierce,

Let me share with you something…
Last month I went on a secret trip to Paris for 3 days to attend a very special event and meeting with 2 big agencies. It is something that I can’t wait to share with all of you. 2020 is such a good start for me to be honest because it gives me hope to push harder, level up my game and evolve my whole packaging as a content creator. Paris is special to me because it feels like my battleground in fashion, it helps me to try new looks that I haven’t try before and meet new people in the industry with the same way of thinking as me on a creative side.

I am wearing a new favourite brand from Copenhagen, Denmark it’s Baum Und Pferdgarten, I love this brand because they know exactly what quality and design really mean with their products.

Wearing: Maaike Top and Nyo Pants

As I slay the streets of Paris, my whole look blends really well on the whole aesthetic vibe of the hotel. I got a lot of good feedbacks with this combo look as I paired with my oversized Georgian brand based in Tbilisi, Georgia.

I believe in building a wardrobe that is a good mix of luxury and streetwear brands. As much as I love to indulge in the seasonal trends, my regular purchases lean towards investment pieces with casual wear thrown into the mix.

Bag: Bottega Veneta

This February 2020, I will unveil the secret with my upcoming project for a brand that is close to my heart. Stay tuned for more slaying projects. Stay Fierce!
