Inspire.

Today marks the day (granted an opening like that seems slightly over the top,) of my weekly Wednesday post, of the whole 'Love,Need,Necessity,' headed 'Inspire' thing I was on about a wee while ago.
Anyway, Wednesdays are a middle point of the week, I rarely have 'exciting' plans, other than work(?) so now this is going to happen.

So, as cliché as this may seem, my first post is centred around Paris.
To me, it epitomises chic, stylish fashion, amazing art, lovely music, great architecture and such varied colours, changing through the seasons, and of course love.
It is an inspiration to many, from designers to architects, (and me!) I decided to make light of my summer trip last year, snapped away like the stereotypical tourist, and used the outcomes as inspiration and photography for my current textiles project. I wasn't disappointed.
I was also lucky enough to visit Le Musee D'Orsay, and seeing some of Monet and Van Gogh's work, along with many others first hand, was great.

Also, a last note, if you have not seen the film 'An Education,' definitely do. I love it.
