When I shoot an outfit post in Melbourne, I am always trying to find ‘cool’ locations and backdrops but in Paris, you could shoot anywhere and it would be fab. What gets me every time with Paris is not just the fashion, but the architectural history. Here, I am at Place Vendôme(French pronunciation: ?[plas v??dom]) is a square in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, France, located to the north of theTuileries Gardens and east of the Église de la Madeleine. It is the starting point of the Rue de la Paix. Its regular architecture by Jules Hardouin-Mansart and pedimented screens canted across the corners give the rectangular Place Vendôme the aspect of an octagon. The original Vendôme Column at the center of the square was erected by Napoleon I to commemorate the battle of Austerlitz; it was torn down on 16 May 1871, by decree of the Paris Commune, but subsequently re-erected and remains a prominent feature on the square today.Thanks Wikipedia
Many fashion shows were held in the buildings here, one being the Haider Ackermann one I was backstage at.
Whilst I sit here multitasking, aka: blogging and watching The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, I realised that these are my favourite jeans. No, not the daggy travelling pants from the movie, these acid wash Jamie Jeans from Topshop. I suppose it is because I bought them in Europe on the trip I took that inspired me to start my blog or perhaps that they have traveled with me from starting the blog, being pregnant and back again.

Amongst the Spring Racing Carnival hype, I thought I needed to post a calm and soft outfit image and these images are the perfect reflection of just that. Shot on my bathroom windowsill in the most beautiful light.
Apologies for being absent for a few days but golly have I been busy! However I come baring good news, I am looking at getting the What Would Karl Do? t-shirts made. This has been a long time coming and finally I have taken the first step into doing something about it, exhibit A above. What do you think? Would you wear one? Any design/style tips for the t-shirt?
Check out these neon heels from StyleTread- talk about statement!
Wishing you a fun week ahead and stay tuned, I have lots of stuff happening at the moment and will be blogging about it all for you (MSFW, events, style posts etc)
