WAKE ME UP IN PARIS

AndyTorresParisMorning AndyTorresParisMorning2

I developed a crush on Paris when I was about 7 or 8. I wasn’t the first and I am sure I wont be the last girl to do so, yet that crush became an obsession. One that got me to become brave enough to pack my bags and leave all my friends and family to move to Europe, to try make it to Paris, or make it in Paris. 8 years later, I feel a bit different. When I went to Paris for the first time, I cried, I am not going to lie. It was a LONG life dream of mine to go there, the prospects of one day living there, working there, I cant express the excitement.
I didn’t move there, but if anybody would have told me 8 years ago that not only I was going to go to Paris very often, but I was also going to work in the Fashion industry and do work trips there for brands like Dior, well, I would have never believed them…

Wake me up in Paris…

  1. You’ve captured the “essence” of Paris perfectly, there is something so infectious and magical about Paris that it becomes intravenous. If it could be bottled and produced, I’m sure it would be the going drug of choice – we’d all be Francophiles. Loved reading that you caught the bug as a child, I think my 9 year old daughter has it too, after I took her there last year for the first time. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Aaaah Paris! My first (city) love. :)

    I was so happy to be back there last weekend, although I’m suffering major Paris withdrawal at the moment…

  10. I’d love to comment on your fashion posts and attires, since this occupies my main interest. However I believe that there’s more that I have to say to you. I admire your ambition, determination, sense of style and congeniality. You truly deserve what you’ve accomplished and I’m sure you still have yet more to accomplish.
    Good luck!

  11. Dear Andy,

    I’m following you and you blog since a long time now and I can say that among the many bloggers that I like, you and Carolina are my favorites by far for your authenticity and the fact that reading what you write, as well as looking at the beautiful pictures, fails to tell me more or less always something.

    I had the same infatuation as you for Paris since I was a little child. About 3 years ago I realized my dream to move to Paris, thanks to the Erasmus Program at the Architecture University that I attended in Venice. Paris was magical for me, here I met the love of my life(who attended the same university as me but we had never met before landing in Paris) and 2 years after our baby was born here.
    So I can say that Paris for me is pure magic.

    It’s always nice to read you and see your dreams come true!

    A big hug! Lidia

  13. Paris is always a good idea :) I also fell in love with the city around that age and was head over heels when we finally visited (when I was 12..) For some reason, I haven’t been back ever since, probably because often I wanna see something new when I have the chance. Anyways, I really should go back actually.

    Great first photo!
