"Underneath that beret was a head full of dreams of living in a chambre de bonne (a garet) with a window looking over the rooftops of Paris, painting canvasses into the night while singing along to Edith Piaf, Serge Gainsberg, and Jacque Brel," Christie revealed.

"Everyday when I put on my beret I looked in the mirror and felt like I was one day closer to realizing my dream. I looked the part ! That’s a start! 4 years later I made that dream my reality!"
