Living in Paris has been incomplete to this day because it is only today that I saw the Rue de l’Abreuvoir. Situated in the 18th arrondissement of the city, it is a path in the neighborhood of Grandes-Carrières. Literally, it means – the streets of the drinker, and it’s by far the most aesthetic street in this beautiful city. And I am so inspired by the beauty of this Rue de l’Abreuvoir that I decided to dedicate this week’s ertsy look of the week to it!
Because the street is a dedication to the art and historic grandeur of Montmartre, the outfit I chose is a tulle. Well, if you don’t know, tulle is a French native fabric which was extensively used in these neighborhoods by the fashion rebels through the centuries. The outfit is pretty rebellious in itself if you look closely.
To start with, I’m wearing a tulle maxi skirt as a dress. A belt in contrasting color to give it some definition with stalkings and studded boots. And a vintage style blazer on it to complete the outfit. While its artistic demeanor may be contested, the outfit is an epitome of the little rebellions Rue de l’Abreuvoir stands for.
The street landmarks:
- The Pink House represented by numerous painters, including Utrillo .
- The sundial
- 15 and 16 Girardon Street (corner of two streets) location of the old watering trough of the village of Montmartre which still existed in 1854
- The location of the old drinking trough at the corner
And this street is what makes for an instgrammer’s dream owing to these beautiful places.
So, here I am, to tulle around Rue de l’Abreuvoir!
