Eiffel tower, baguettes, style & fashion sum up my latest visit to beyond-incredible Paris.

From exquisite architecture, to an abundance of highly skilled designers, to the overwhelming choice of fashion: from haute couture to chic street-wear Paris, for me has it all.

Every morning I would wake up to the smell of the bustling neighbouring pâtisserie, and start my day with a stroll down the Champs d'Élysées, admiring the effortless style of Parisian fashionistas.

One of the highlights of my visit to Paris was catching up with fellow bloggers Tellement PARIS and Hippie Chic. Both girls are absolutely stunning and so much fun! We had a great night eating, drinking & exchanging shopping tips & travel stories.

I've just arrived in Germany for a week before heading off to Switzerland. Back soon with an outfit post with my Paris purchases.

I'm wearing:
Blazer - Vintage
Dress - Markets (as seen here: What happens in Vegas)

I reworked this gorgeous vintage dress which i picked up from a local thrift store for just $6 and am thrilled with the results. Vintage dresses are my fashion weakness and I adore the beautiful detail and craftsmanship in this piece, from the lace, to the gilded flower, to the tulle petticoat!

It's less than 3 weeks until I start the first leg of my overseas travels. My first stop - Santa Monica. I have two months to see the sights of North America, before heading off to Hong Kong, Vietnam and then Europe - I can't wait! Please keep sending through your amazing suggestions, I look forward to meeting up with as many bloggers on my travels as possible.

Now on to more important matters, the lucky winner of the Hayley Kate design is the beautiful
Diamonds and Champagne congratulations and thank you to everyone who entered.

Have a great week!

There is a story to these photos. I was leaving work, when I stumbled past this fabulous jacket in the window of my favourite vintage boutique - best of all I picked it up for only $10. I then headed home to find that my DSLR remote control had finally arrived. I was so excited to test it out, that I jumped straight in and out of the shower, threw on my beloved tube skirt, and snapped away (in the backyard, no makeup, and hair still wet!).

Also a big thankyou to June Paski, who sent an "Awesome Blogger" award my way. Here are 7 new things about me.

1. I play the piano and saxophone
2. I’m a huge foodie and love eating out at restaurants
3. I play tennis and was a state representative swimmer
4. I love to sing, but am terribly shy about it
5. I have a huge vintage dress collection
6. I love foreign and art house film
7. A dream of mine has been to travel the world (which will happen next year!)

I'd like to pass this award on to: Lulu Letty, Zanita, the Sydney Girl, Come Over to the Dark Side, KIRAFASHION and Style Sophisticate.
