Mrs. Lilien's Traveling Suitcase : Amanda Pearl


If you are a lover of baubles and ladylike things then you must be familiar with Amanda Pearl and all her fancy blings. She is the mastermind behind Amanda Pearl: a site that satisfies your inner girly-girl! She's a retired ballerina turned bauble tastemaker; she's one heck of a dinner date and a fearsome gelato gladiator! I've lent her my suitcase and sent her off to Paris and she's packed it with the kind of goodies that any gal would cherish. She's filled us in on the special contents that she packed while making us all jealous of the trip that she mapped. I'll let her take it from here as she taunts us with her à la mode, to book a one-way on Airfrance before I explode!

This jersey dress couldn't be easier to pack and can be worn a million different ways, day or night!  With a quick change of accessories, I'll wear this with flats and my Agate Horn necklace for appointments during the day, and then trade those for heels and some sparkle (Vintage Crystal!) for night. 

I'm in absolute "amour" with these flats and would pair them with nearly anything to give me a little extra "je ne sais quoi".

Chic shades are a must for taking in the sights and walking along la Seine in the "City of Light". This pair is the perfect mix for this American in Paris, with the combination of chic black lace in a flower shaped frame and kooky flower appliqués..

I can be completely undone (fresh off an overnight flight, for example), put this lipstick on and feel like a million bucks--it's like magic. Honest-to-goodness, this orangey red is my go-to for nearly every occasion.

I'll need something special for going out in the evenings, and this lace and moiré Roll Clutch is it. It fits my iPhone/camera, keys, lippy, cash and metro pass. Parfait!
Paris Visite Pass... need I say more?
I'll toss on this Gobstopper Pearl necklace for when I'm feeling, well... Pearly.
A Vintage Crystal Necklace will allow me to compete with the soft sparkle of the ballroom chandeliers of the palaces of Rivoli...
I always need a little bit of leopard involved, and won't leave home without this cozy scarf to guard me against the fall Parisian chill.  Perfect for anything from the plane to a stroll through the Tuileries.
I need a soundtrack for my strolls through Paris, not to mention an easy camera for taking "photo notes". My iPhone is always by my side.
Merci, Amanda + Fidel for partaking in the fun...and for fashionably demonstrating that Paris cannot be outdone!
