PARIS vs NEW YORK
DRESSING THE PART
Style- both New Yorkers and Parisiennes are constantly complimented on their ability to look oh so chic. The Parisienne will pick out timeless pieces in darker hues, that come together elegantly to create the iconic look we all know and love. The New Yorker is less restricted-- she gets to have a bit more fun as she confidently puts together a more colorful and casual look that shows off her bubbly personality.
Completing the look..
Both ladies recognize that no look is complete without a touch of makeup! The NYC gal will go for a more dramatic look with a smoky eye. The Parisienne, on the other hand, tends to prefer a more natural look tied off with another classic, a bold red lip!
Take a break
All city lovers need a break every once in a while-- and Paris and New York do a great job offering Park oases from the hustle and bustle! We here at C&D love crossing town and taking a brisk walk up and down the Highline and admiring the diverse skyline.
In Paris, things are a few degrees calmer-- the Jardin Luxembourg, complete with its historic palace and pristine French gardens, is the perfect place to savor the rare Parisian sun over some wine and cheese.
Bistro or bodega?
In Brooklyn it's the corner bodega, but in Paris, everyone flocks to the neighborhood staple bistro. The bodega, complete with its cats and diverse selection of snacks, has quickly become something quintessentially NYC.
The Parisian bistro stands as a relic of 'la belle epoque' and was for a long time the workspace of the artists like Hemingway and Picasso, but is loved just as much today.
The Sweet Treat
These delicate little treats are perhaps the only place the French will have fun with color, not to mention they're absolutely delicious.
The New Yorker, on the other hand, will head to Sugar Sweet Sunshine cupcake shop to do some serious indulging.
