Mulit-colored Robe

On Day 2 of sightseeing in Paris, our agenda included making a couple of museum visits. The most anticipated was the Louvre. This robe reminded me a bit of water color paintings when I first spotted it at H&M, and I thought it would pair well with some of the artwork we would see that day. I added a few other color accents in the skirt, belt and shoes to finish off the artsy look.

Robe & Camisole: H&M;  Skirt: Brooklyn Industries;  Ring: Gifted;  Belt: Old Navy;  Sandals: 2010 purchase from store in Madrid 


Added a hat to protect the tresses from sun damage; this one from H&M
Posing on the Seine River right outside of Notre Dam
Trying Escargot (cooked with garlic & parsley butter) for the first time....AND LOVING IT! 

More highlights of my trip to London & Paris to come in a later post.

M.I.A

Oh blogging, how I miss thee! So sorry I've been missing in action. The down time & wifi on vacation have been very scant. I'm currently sitting outside early morning in Paris, smelling the air after what looks like rain while I was asleep. I love Paris! only 3 more days here but I hope to show you guys in a later post all the different things I've seen. And if anyone here is thinking of a vacation spot to visit, think of visiting Versailles. The Garden of Versailles is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen! Totally breath taking and a must see in your lifetime. 

But first, my decision to visit Paris was because I had to attend my cousins wedding in London. I figured why not do two-for-one and Eurostar it over to Paris as well!  The wedding was beautiful and emotional,  so much love was in that room.  And if you learn one thing about me other than I love fashion, it's that I love, LOVE. I love seeing people in love! 

I didn't want to purchase anything expensive since I was saving for spending money on vacation, so I picked up this light maxi dress from H&M the week before I left New York for London. Overall, I was very pleased with my look! Here a few solo shots I manage to take during wedding cocktail hour.

Dress: H&M,  Shoes:  Michael Kors,  Earrings: Express, Clutch: West Fever  Bracelet: Ann Taylor Loft



Au Revoir!

4-inch love

First off, my apologies for being such a bad blogger. I've been a little under the weather and just not fit to take pics. Also, I leave for vacation to London & Paris tomorrow and have been frantically running around preparing for that.

Having said that, I had to do a post about the new love in my life. These 4-inch Maison Martin Margiela cutout booties. They are not the most comfortable things to wear (because of the restriction from the inset tan strap) but I tried them on in Barneys and fell in love with the way they looked. These will certainly be a conversation piece every time I wear them. Seriously influenced by the deep discounted price, the fact that these are my first Margielas, and coupled with a very persuading sales associate, helped to sway my decision to -- 'YES BUY'! 

I mean come on wouldn't you fall in love too???!





I promise to be a better blogger in the near future, so hope you guys tag along and check-in on my adventures in London & Paris!
