Polkadot Dress

Week one of 2013 was pretty quiet for me but that's probably a good thing after the excitment of Christmas. I've been treating myself to a few bits in the sales and booked a little weekend in Paris for February which I'm pretty excited about. I visited back in September and saw a lot of the touristy things but do you know about any interesting and more unusual places for me to visit in Paris? I'm only going to be there for two days but I'm hoping to cram a lot in.

I've got a feeling I will be taking this new dress to Paris with me. It's nice an girly with a polka dot print but I also love the zip detail which stops it from being too prim.

Dress: ASOS
Shoes c/o Spartoo: Boots by Blink
Bow: New Look

The records weren't strictly a sale purchase but I got them all for a bargain price on eBay. I used to buy one 7" record a week when I was in uni and I don't really know why I stopped, I love owning a physical copy of my favourite tracks. I suppose I'm quite old fashioned because I don't like downloading music and films. I'm building up my collection which as you can has a pretty early 90s vibe. You can see Nicky and Richey rocking the leopard print on the picture disk which is where I get my love of leopard print from.

I did manage to pick up this Naughty Alice set for a bargain price of £26 when this size bottle (without the body lotion) normally retails for about £45.

  3. I'd love to visit Paris! I think I need to save up and actually do it this year, I'm always amazed at how cheap you can get eurostar tickets so I need to start planning! The dress looks really pretty, I like the gold zip!

  15. I'm with you about the downloading music, I rarely if ever download anything, mostly because a lot of it is laced with viruses or at least a lot of the things I've tried downloading in the past were. You look pretty, I love a good polka dot dress. A trip to Paris?! Lucky lady! I hope to visit Paris one day, all of Europe really. Naughty Alice, I will have to check out this perfume.
