I discovered a “grisette” to be an 1800’s independent working class woman with intellectual aspirations, a dash of flirtaciousness, and a penchant for art and culture. Feeling a kinship with this modest (if you leave out her allusions to prostitution) and adventurous bohemian, I decided to finally take up a blog in her name and live Paris with her spirit.

With this in mind, welcome to a young American expat’s world in Paris. I intend to provide my readers with reports of my dandy-isms throughout Paris and elsewhere, as well as my explorations in Parisian fashion, culture, gastronomy…and whatever else strikes my fancy.  Bonne lecture!!!
