The Poncho

My first two days in Paris were nothing but dark clouds and heavy downpours with just a few of blue heaven in-between.


Photo taken at the Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors) in the Palace of Versailles, the most beautiful room in the palace. I was expecting this palace to be spectacular but it was all  hype. Well maybe because I´ve seen lots of well preserved royal palaces in Spain. The good thing is, I can take pictures inside even if it´s forbidden. Almost everybody´s doing it, I swear!


The Louis Vuitton flagship store in Champs Elysses.There was a line filled with Asian tourists at the store entrance with a store attendant wearing a LV orange scarf watching them like a hawk. I can only peep. No budget for now.




Just admiring the window display. I feel and look like a butterfly wearing this poncho. lol! I only wear this in spring because it comes with a hood for the rainy days but it was cold and wet in Paris with only just this  on my back. Brrrrrr...

Since this is a fashion blog, you´ll be seeing lots of jewelry photos from the Musée du Louvre. Watch out for them soon! :)

Hope you´re having a lovely week, dahlings! :)

PS: Travel photos are in my other blog, click here! ;)

I love that poncho Che, I have one here and it's bad I cannot even wear it, too hot! I can't wait to see your Paris photos. I can only dream about it now. Europe is one of my dream vacations and I don't see it in the near future yet. I don't do much shopping too pag bakasyon kc I'd rather spend it on trying new restaurants saka LV, OMG I don't own any of that, too expensive for me.

Isn't Paris lovely? Sorry about the bad weather, though! And I have never been to Versailles... must put that on my list of places to visit :)
