One fine morning in Paris, I decided to wear the prettiest dress that resided in my suitcase. This dress seemed to match the dreamy state of mind that one has, when in Paris. This dress also seemed to compliment and stand out fantastically from my surroundings, whether it was the colourful carousel, the dull Eiffel Tower, the greens in the park or the blue skies. Everything just fit in, somehow.
It started with the Dubai trip. Dubai and shopping have always gone hand in hand for me, and there were 3-4 trips to the mall on a weekly basis. And I was there for 4 weeks! But every single time, I had to tell myself to take it easy because Dubai was just my first destination and I had to not empty my bank account shopping there as I had some lovely European cities to waste that in. So on one particular trip, we were at Forever 21 and it was during their massive sale. So I had willed myself to only pick up sale pieces and nothing more. On my way to the dressing rooms, I met this dress. It was on a mannequin and it just blew me away. I've never loved pink and always been a purple kind of girl, but the style and the silhouette is something that I loved. It also reminded me of a fancier and much prettier version of a dress I had back home (top left of the blog). And it came with a nice big price tag as well. Still, I wanted to try it, because who wouldn't?
