Traveling Summer: LA > France > Italy > France > LA

I'm a quick packer, but that probably means I'm an over packer and often that means that I bring too many shoes. I often forget how much walking we do in cities that are not LA = heels are no good, but it's hard not to bring at least one pair, so this time I've limited myself to my Rag & Bones (at 12 o'clock). Besides these for my 2 weeks in Europe I've brought 6 other pairs, is that reasonable? I think so.
Because we've been so busy lately - sorry, neglected blog :( - my social media of choice has been Instagram which is linked to my twitter. Are you on? If so, please follow me - seevivier - and I'll follow you. These pics are mostly my from there so apologies if there's nothing new for you.
Tomorrow le mari and I leave the French countryside (already!) for a brief grown up excursion to Italy.
We're meeting friends there and we're all leaving our kids with respective families. 
Our Italian friend is taking care of all the details and I don't even know where we're going, except that we fly to Milan and tomorrow night we are seeing an opera at the outdoor arena of Verona. 
Also inside my travel bag, contents were laid out for NBC NY's the Thread.
My first instagram in Paris on Tuesday.
The view from sister-in-law's apt on a beautiful little street in Paris.
No explanation necessary.
Poolside reading
All hail the French beauty Brigitte.
More (mostly on Instagram) tomorrow from Italy. xox

Hearts of Wendy Polish

We've had a lot of good studio visits lately - meaning people coming to visit us at the studio. Hye Park mentioned below, and there was also the talented and beautiful Wendy Polish
Wendy is apparently a creative jack-of-all-trades. Among other things, she illustrates, textile designs and candle makes. We are very excited to be carrying her magical "water made" candles at the store soon. She just emailed me this drawing of our canvas shopping tote from the CV store and I heart it :)

Hye Park

Gorgeous Korean model Hye Park stopped by to say hello today.
And she left with some goodies.  
Here she was trying on the CV for Steven Alan leopard duffle. Soon to be in SA stores near you. :)
 I became a little model obsessed after her visit to the studio and I found that she had tweeted this picture of herself with her new blue messenger bag!
And I found this ad she did for H&M - and apparently she was the first Asian in an ad campaign for that company (and many others.) Go Hye!
