Inspired by Paris was created by Jordan Phillips, a bonafide Jean-Luc Godard-idolizing, striped-shirt-wearing, sparkling-Eiffel Tower-loving Francophile. Jordan is based in New York City, but she escapes to her apartment near Café de Flore as often as possible.
If you haven’t already, start watching French films and you’ll realize that they don’t feel the need to wrap up everything with a pretty Hollywood bow at the end. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. Ça dépend. French films don’t need to have a happy ending, or even an ending at all. Travel is the same; you can save and plan and anticipate and complete a trip to Paris, or you can just be inspired by Paris. The ideas and goodies offered here are meant to instantly transport you to a café terrace in France, no passport required.
All vintage is not the same, so never settle. Authenticity, value, and customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to Inspired by Paris. Buying clothing and accessories will not make you happy per se, but spending money on an exquisitely well-made item that you will be proud to wear year after year can bring a certain amount of pleasure. Spending just to spend is frivolous, but buying a few quality must-have items can make you look and feel great.
