Last Wednesday I went to the Sarenza What’s Hot party – a chance for bloggers from across Europe to meet, chat and look at beautiful shoes. Oh, and the party was in Paris, one of the most stylish cities in the world. No biggie.
Along with beautiful bloggers Tor and Reena, I arrived in Paris at 6pm and had just enough time to change into my party outfit. I tried on at least 87% of my wardrobe before I settled on a simple blouse-and-skirt combination, plus my map of Paris headscarf (in case we lost our way)…
The venue was fantastic – a big, airy warehouse with all the nonchalant coolness you’d expect from the Parisian Fash Pack. The walls were covered with street style snaps taken by France’s biggest bloggers and we voted for our favourites (mine was a dapper young man named Frederic).
A popular French band called La Femme entertained the audience and soon had them on their (beautifully dressed) feet.
Of course, there were shoes. Lots of shoes. Some were sitting on pedestals for us to admire…
… and others strutted around the venue. These neon pink heeled pair were my favourites.

We ate hot dogs and canapes (an excellent mix – UK PRs take note!), drank cocktails and champagne and took photos of our feet. It was such a wonderful night and I cannot thank the Sarenza team and lovely Camille from We Are Social enough for being such fabulous hosts.
Tor, Reena and I didn’t leave Paris until Thursday evening, so we had time to squeeze in some vintage shopping. I picked up some real bargains (vintage in France is amazing), but more on them tomorrow. For now I’ll leave you with one French phrase I have mastered – au revoir! (Spoken like a true Parisian, I think you’ll agree.)
