The voice of Paris with Tara: For as long as I remember, Parisian women have had comfort as the very last criteria on their list when choosing what to wear for ’les fêtes de fin d’année’.

Parisian women love wearing fancy evening dresses all year-round and the continental way of eating out a lot gives them many opportunities to spoil themselves, even on a budget. Finding that dress for Christmas and New Year used to be a challenge, albeit a fun one, to sparkle brighter than ever. As a consequence, I’ve often noticed that a lot of women end up looking like Christmas trees, forgetting for two nights that we look up to them for their timeless elegance.
