Last year, I blogged about what I would take in my imaginary suitcase if I were to take a city break to Paris. Now, I sit here amongst debris and fabric rubble excitedly preparing myself for a trip to the city of love in 4 days (yes, I will be spending Valentines day eating chocolates by Diptyque candlelight melting at the staggering view beyond my window - boyfriend not included). Expect pictures galore and copious Instagram (therealnaomio) references to baguettes within the next 2 weeks.
Before then, however, I'll be compiling an imaginary suitcase for New York - inspired by the mannequin dressing I've been doing recently on a university project. They say lightening never strikes twice but, who knows, the charm of the (virtual) holiday holdall might well do.
