Three: Fall Hideouts in Paris

It’s me again y’all. I vaguely recall making an introduction a while back, but instead of digging it up again: Luvina, 24, American Expat living in Paris. I’ll be writing about Paris things for the most part, but also some politics and whatever the hell else I feel like talking about. Onward? Around mid-August to...

Paris Fashion Week

So fashion week just ended, and I think I might still be drunk.

Visit Brigitte’s myspace to listen...

I’m New Here: Paris Edition

Antwan wants me to introduce myself before I start clogging up his blog with my nonsense. So HI, I’m Luvina, a 22 year old suburban malcontent turned New Yorker turned Parisian.  I moved to France from Brooklyn about a year ago, and I’ve been bitching about it ever since.  I’ll post mostly about film and...

Martin Scorsese for Chanel

A couple of days ago, Chanel  released their new promo for Bleu de Chanel. The spot is directed by Scorsese and stars one of the only things I like about France, Gaspard Ulliel.  Mmm. xx Luvina
