we’re jetting back to paris this week, because why the heck not, n’est-ce pas? this is but a fantasy, at least at this moment. we’re headed to what looks to me to be très jolie — bambino in Paris’s 11th arrondissement. a sleek-looking spot, bambino was born from owner Fabien Lombardi’s passion for music, and a desire to share around a record, drawing their inspiration from the four corners of the globe, the festivity of Tel Aviv, the clubs of London and New York, and perhaps most especially, the Jazz cafés of Tokyo. but it’s not just music we’ve come here for, let’s grab a highball and one or two of the very delicious-looking dishes cooked over charcoal and in a wood-fired oven. they’ve even got their own spotify soundtracks so on our walk over we’ll listen to their tunes with some tortoiseshell headphones to get ourselves properly in the mood for music. we’re going to dress up a tad tonight, too, because honestly it’s just been too dang long since we’ve gotten fancy. i’ve got some kind of tomboy chic vibes going on with a cropped top worn with some wide-leg flared black pants and paired with some strappy art deco-looking high-heeled sandals. we’re adding some further oomph with a slick black hooded jacket, capped hat, and a menswear-inspired Tie Patterned Silk Scarf (because i don’t think we’re even allowed in france without some sort of scarf!). and to get ourselves good and educated about all things new in paris, we’re bringing along Cereal’s City Guide Paris by rosa park so we know where to head for the after-party nightcap. i think it’s going to be really fun, and quite possibly, a very late evening!
