I'm a Art History student and i'm also writting a memoir about woman at the 19th century. I started my blog a year and half ago to share my univers which means my passion for art, my outfitts and my inspirations.

To me, parisian style is more a question of allure. My idea of the parisian chic is an ideal of natural and elegance directly inherited by the aristocracy of the 19th century, and from Coco Chanel.
But i'm not matching with it : i think i'm too excentric !
Except my passion for black color, graphics looks and well ordered.
Yes, because i love this city which is rich of culture even if i son't really like the "parisian state of mind". It's a city which really live in the past, and i love it, it marked by so many fascinating periods, and it's its charm.
There are so many places to see, it's almost inexhaustible.
When i'm walking in Paris, i feel the track of the 19th century, my favourite period.
It's difficult to say, because the notion of glamour varies according to the period. It's might be Rita Hayworth, Elizabeth Siddal, Anita Pallenberg, or Debbie Harry. Thus i don't really like glamour, it's better when there is more asperity, i prefer someone like Courtney Love to whatever hollywood actresses !
To me, the parisian icon is between Edith Piaf and Simone de Beauvoir. Because they are independant women, well advanced for their time, and who make a lot for the french culture. Thus they were really well dressed !
Simone de Beauvoir
There is a mutual influence, there always is. In the past, fashion and art evolved at the same time, for example Art-Nouveau, or the "arts and crafts" mouvement in England.
It doesn't separate arts, i think everything is tied, with music also. For example , a painting or a song could influence my outfitt, not litteraly but especially in my mind.
I choose a nickname because i have to get a distance between me and the girl in the picture.
On pictures i'm a character, someone like me exacerbated. It makes me dare more, in real life i'm shy and reserved.
I choose the name of Pandora because i really like mythology and i find the Pandore myth with Eve interresting , she's someone with a pivotal role in misogyny.
I'm not an icon ! I don't like this term because it doesn't fit with me. An icon is someone like Marianne Faithfull, not me !
Be original, and don't care of the look of other people, even if it's quite hard.
You have to assum your excenticity, it's give you an personnal development.
When i want to wear something, even strange or too-much, i wear it and i learn to not heard bad comments in the street.

For fashion, i love Freep'star, Pretty Box, Mamie, Episode. I also love the new store Eple & Melk on Charlot street, which purpose also young fashion designers as MelleSan.
For the city i can advice the catacombs, Gustave Moreau museum, Romantic life museum and Jean-Jacques Henner museum.
Later my dream is to be an art historian, fashion historian and also social and cultural anthropologist specialized in the 19th century.
It seems to be a lot but everything group together. I also want to write books, organise exhibitions, work in a museum.
I want to continue in fashion also but not as a model but may be as a stylist or designer.
Rodarte, Alexander McQueen, Chloé, Charles Anastase, Giambattista Valli, Balmain, Christopher Kane.
I think Chloé and Miu Miu embody really well the young parisian lady.
