Pieces of Paris

Parisian People… Fashion… Trends… Flavors… Culture

Writer / Editor / Fashion Reviews / Paris Expert


Known on the internet as Prête-Moi Paris, this is a trademarked brand that I created and for which I am constantly discovering, testing, tasting and reviewing the culture of Paris with a focus on French luxury, fashion, shows and food, but not limited to these. I strive to write about things and events that are new  and interesting while also applying an authentic spin on the classics. An American living in Paris since 2002, I have studied the French language and culture, and believe strongly in a learned adaptation to a host culture whether traveling as a tourist or living here long-term.


The emphasis of this editorial styled blog on luxury, fashion shows and food stems from the fact that they are a large part of the French culture, and should be celebrated to the fullest. I only write about things that I find interesting, I occasionally write articles for compensation (which helps pay for the some of the cost of running the blog), and sometimes am gifted things to test. I respectfully only write about things that I feel fit with the style of this site and those things that I enjoy about the Paris, French and fashion cultures. I write mostly about my muse : Paris, and those things that make it the most visited place on Earth!

The target audience is mainly women from the ages of 18 to 55, from middle to upper middle class incomes. There are currently over 2000 direct subscribers to the site. And a large part of the traffic my site sees comes from the successful Twitter account that I use on a daily basis to promote my blog ( and from the Facebook fan page ( The majority of the people who read my blog are interested in luxury, fashion and tourism in Paris. I also use Instagram and Flickr to share my images of Paris, and Viméo for video projects.


Currently with well over 700 blog posts and more than  2000 direct blog followers, the blog has been live since October 2009, and in late August 2010 was moved from a Blogspot platform to WordPress with a personalized domain name. Since this move, Prête-Moi Paris has grown regularly in viewers each year. The greater majority of Prête-Moi Paris readers are from France, Europe, Australia and the North America, but Prête-Moi Paris is continually seeking out new ways to attract more reader demographics .
