Everyone who knows me knows that I love France. I first fell in love at the age of 8. I was visiting my aunt in London, and she took me to Paris for the weekend as a birthday present. I’ll never forget seeing the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame de Paris. Finally, a short stop at the Palace of Versailles began a lifelong obsession with Marie Antoinette.

While learning about French geography, I fell in love with the south of France, particularly Marseilles. When I saw Modcloth’s Marseilles Memories Dress, which is unfortunately now unavailable, I knew I had to have it. Read more
