Vanessa ‘Nessy’ Grall. The brains, the talent and creative behind MessyNessyChic.com

Messy Nessy Chic is penned by Vanessa (aka Nessy) Grall, an expat Brit who has adopted Paris as her home wholeheartedly. Nessy’s main focus is writing about vintage nostalgia. She has a remarkable talent for searching out the poignant, the fascinating and the unusual topics. Is she about fashion, home or travel? Yes. Does she write about food, motorcycles and shopping? Yes. It is all about Paris? No. The world is her literary oyster.


Where most bloggers are finding fabulous photos and jotting a line or two of description below, Nessy goes in the opposite direction. Her articles are not overly long, but they are packed full of engaging photography with rich, juicy content. One word of warning. When you open up this blog for the first time, be sure to have a cup of tea or a glass of wine by your side. You are going to want to browse and linger over this gal’s fabulous collection of truly wonderful stories.


We invite you to click on any of the intro’s to her articles below and we’ll bet that you’ll find something bizarre, inspirational or amazing – all of which will intrigue you to read on. To break up the reading routine, click on Nessy’s ‘man on the street’ video interviews at Paris Fashion week on ‘Fashion Dummies’.
