I really can't believe how wonderful my boyfriend is. We were on location for our fall fashion layout in the foothills near Calgary and he came along for the adventure. The day was long and tiring and when I came back to my car, there was this wonderful wild flower bouquet waiting for me on my car seat. I must say the man has a talent for flower arranging.

Stored at my parents house are all my old Vogue magazines that I have collected, it's crazy but the first one in my collection in the September 1991 issue. This one is in the worst one in the collection, I would pour over the pages day after day. Never in a million years would I have dreamt that one day I would have my own magazine...but here we are.
The clouds rolled in, I'm stressed out from car shopping and I miss my boyfriend. I'm new to this long distance relationship thing, it's tough when you have a hard day and all you want to do is fall into his arms, cuddle on the couch and watch an old movie.
I'm a lover of day dreams... Mine are always the same, living in Paris in my charming apartment spending my days in cafes or wondering the streets of Paris and of course shopping. Shopping for Dior dresses to fill my closets, fresh flowers to brighten up my day, books and paintings to inspire my dreams, and lace lingerie for my late night rendezvous.
my name is Shelly Solarz and one day I was crazy enough to start a magazine called Parlour. This blog is about me, about what I go though with this wonderful magazine, my inspirations, my loves and everything in between. The hope is that I inspire you and for you to know you aren't alone in your ups and downs in following your dreams.
