Why do we love Paris so much? The whimsical and chic of lovers and travelers strikes a chord in both young and old. We are no stranger to this Parisian addiction. The feeling must be in the air because we're seeing a lot of behind-the-scenes action on photo shoots based around the idea of French love, Marie Antoinette, and of course, serious coverage from Paris Fashion Week. Over the next week, POSH Preference will be in Paris, sharing the sights and inspiration from the city of love and lights. If you have a smartphone, be sure to follow us on Instagram (user name posh_preference) or here with your computer. In the meantime, get in the mood with one of our favorite bloggers - the adorable Garance Dore - and her Pardon My French series.
