Lately I have been crushing over Zippora Seven on TFS.
I have also become OBSESSED with the girls from the Liger store blog. WOWWW. Thanks to Miss Woo from Cheapskate Chic for discovering them. They are amazing. So sure they have access to some seriously rad gear but they kill it everytime. And the Celine sandals look sooo good on them, and not a tan leather skirt in sight. They have also reignited my love for crazy knits. And anyone who can rock MBT shoes is a superhero.
Recently I also sold about half my wardrobe (the half I never wore) and used the resulting money to buy a couple of delightful things. Firstly a Bernhard Willhelm plaid top from Shop Fatal (I am obsessed now) and a Tao for CDG F/W 2008 top (the top version of the dress in the photo) from eBay. They were pretty expensive, well for me anyway, but I LOVE them and am really happy I got things I adore rather than a pile of things that are ok.
In other news....
About a week ago I finally received confirmation that I am going to Paris on exchange next semester for 6 months. I am extremely excited, but also nervous and anxious. I've been so busy with assignments and exams it's taken a little while to compute, but now that my one-way flight is booked and I've pretty much secured an apartment (10 min walk from COS....ahhh I am going to be so broke) it is becoming very real. I leave in less than 3 months, and if all goes to plan I'll be moving from Paris to Glasgow and won't be back in Australia for around 3 years. Yikes. Now all that is left to do is piles of paperwork, pack up my life, improve my French as quickly as possible and say goodbye to Melbourne, my home for basically the last 22 years. It is a crazy, wonderful time.
Does anyone have any recommendations for things I should see/buy/taste/do in Paris?
Great cafes, boutiques, secondhand stores, bars, anything?
PS: Exams are nearly over, just another two crazy weeks and I'll be posting much more regularly.
