At first I didn't think twice about the construction happening in the courtyard of the Louvre. Then, it occurred to me - of course, it was for Paris Fashion Week. It actually started today. I should have been hanging out in the vicinity, watching the fashionistas, instead of
shopping (without success) for silk flowers. But then again, I'm sure my clothes would have stopped me getting too close - I'm not sure a three-day worn sweater, towel-dried hair and puffy gilet would have looked convincing as a high-fashion onlooker's attire.
