Introduction & Summer Trendspotting, 2014

Hi! My name is Victoria Laury and I live most of the time in Paris, France, and part of the time in San Francisco, California. Living in the city of lights and growing up around fashion inspires me to take notes and participate. Recently, Marybeth La Motte from Red Carpet Bay Area asked me to share my perspective on styles I see around Paris. My plan is to post highlights from some of the latest trends — summer clothing, accessories and beauty — and also to alert you to some fantastic getaways!

Starting with high heels, here are some of my favorites for summer, 2014:
