wear this there: anahi paris.
this parisian bistro in le marais quite literally glows with gold.
hungry? i hope so because we’re jetting back to the city of lights today, quite literally, because this restaurant really glows with gold. we’re headed to anahã, an old parisian bistro in one of my favorite neighborhoods, le marais, with cracked-porcelain-tiled walls (filled with gold!) — an iconic cafe that’s been reborn. think cafe chairs gilded in bronze and lots of shiny points of light, including their ornate painted ceiling. you’ll constantly feel yourself glowing in this really good light. this argentinian steakhouse is so sophisticated, right down to those gleaming vintage church candelabras in the windows, designed by the talented duo of humbert & poyet, who contributed to the revival of anahã cafe with subtle touches of elegance and modernity.
we’re getting into the spirit of the place and getting our fancy on with a shimmery tulle skirt balanced out with a chic black biker jacket over a sheer ribbed silk t-shirt with a sexy bralette underneath. then we’re pairing some black maryjanes with some crystal-embellished ankle socks just for fun. naturally, we’re adding a couple of layered necklaces to embrace all the bling in this spot. while we await our friends at the bar, i suggest reading a few pages from the luminaries by eleanor catton — a tale of the gold rush boom and bust — perfect for this gilded locale. it’s a brilliantly constructed, fiendishly clever ghost story and a gripping page-turner.
