The bold red coats around Paris caught our attention, but they weren’t the only ones. Winter has never looked this chic! Here are some more stylish ladies bundled up in Parisian Fashion. Steal their style with our top pics from ModCloth.
We saw fur trims and stoles on many ladies around the city. The Aria Coat has a quilted body and faux fur trim for a hint of luxury.
The Great Cape-r is the perfect escape from traditional winter coats.
There is no escaping the winter standard of black outerwear, even in the city of lights. Though I find the scene perfect walking along the Place des Vosges. The shops along the square are mostly art galleries creating their own flare. Righteous Resolutions Coat from ModCloth creates a sleek image for $89.99.
Plaid is being seen around the world. This Silver and Bold Coat has a fun sixties vibe that somehow makes it feel more fresh than the trench styles.
Spring clothes may be starting to hit the stores, but all the snow should be enough to convince you there are still a few months of winter left. Don’t let the season pass you by without a stylish new coat. We think Paris is the perfect inspiration for winter 2011. Shop ModCloth for Unique and Chic Finds!
Paris is cold this time of year but also beautiful! The city of lights was extra lit up with Christmas displays and fully decked halls. From seeing the sights to walking through Christmas markets, the city was amazing. Here’s a look at my style while exploring this great city.
After a long flight I arrived in Paris in bold colors to mask my exhaustion from the overnight flight.
Seeing the Eiffel Tower was breath taking, partially because the winds were so strong. Bundled up tight we wandered a Christmas Market after sipping espresso in a local cafe.
The day at the Louvre was a welcome break to the cold.
Once the snow stopped and the winds blew away, it was the perfect day to just wander the city.
Home again, home again.
Stay tuned for more updates on our trip to Paris.

As much fun as we’ve had fun exploring Dublin, the current bailout scenario has tinged our trip a little. In consideration of these circumstances we have decided to skip the jobs update for this city. More people seem to be leaving Ireland than going. Be sure to keep Dublin on your list of must visit places, after all they could use the tourism. But, it may not be the right time to jump across the pond for a job opportunity.
Enough of that, let’s recap the fun we had!
Eat Drink and be Merry!
Whether you’re staying at the Four Season’s or not, be sure to head over. Food at Season’s Restaurant is top rated on Zagat plus the ICE bar has been named one of the coolest places in Dublin.
Looking for a more traditional pub atmosphere. Then The Temple Bar is the destination for you! With live music, free flowing pints, and good food, you’ll feel right at home.
Can’t miss Fashion!
We were very intrigued by the street fashion around Dublin. Some of our favorite pics came from the blog Dublin Streets. You can see our posts, A Pop of Color in Dublin & Dublin Street Fashion, plus here are a few more pics we loved.
