I recently celebrated my 14 year wedding anniversary and, four years ago, we celebrated our 10 year anniversary in gay Paris.
At the time, I was going through my "Marie-Antoinette" phase. We took the train to Chateau de Versailles and spent the day walking the halls of that palatial edifice and I even made my poor hubby and four year old son walk miles to take in Marie's private residence, Petite Trianon.
So you can imagine my ecstasy and excitement over Dior's Fall 2012 campaign "Secret Garden-Versailles."

Running through Versailles without the crush of a million other tourists would certainly be my fantasy life. My mother and I always joke about our love of fashion and, how we see things in magazines, and think...I've got to have that...for my fantasy life. My mom is right, it is hard to distinguish our real lives versus our fantasy lives; however, living in Los Angeles, I am certainly allowed to have some artistic license.
It is not unusual to find me cooking Sunday dinner in my 1960s dressing gowns or roaming the streets of my little beach town in Pucci-esque lounge pants. I wear my passion for fashion on my sleeves and, although a lot of people think I'm insane, I would absolutely put on a Dior gown and run down my street as if I didn't have a care in the world. However, this would be depend upon how much Clicquot the good widow would provide me beforehand.
Regardless, the video is a fashion journey that makes me long for the Parisian countryside and the haute couture of the high fashion society.
