Shopped: 2 pairs of Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses

As I mentioned in my previous post, I really love the new Dolce and Gabbana Majolica themed collection. So much so, that I already bought a pair of sandals from it (pic of those another time!) as well as a pair of sunglasses:



I actually got them on MatchesFashion.com and it was my first time buying something from them. I am pleased to say that the experience was really good, they shipped fast, the packaging was impeccable and so on.

Before finding the actual new Majolica sunglasses from the latest collection I also tried looking for them in local stores where they had not gotten the latest collection yet. They did, however, have a pair from the previous collection, in simple blue and white.
Since that is a color combination I really love as well, I decided to get that pair too.


So now I, who always tend to favor round, oversized sunglasses, actually have 2 pairs of cat eye sunglasses! Yikes! I hope I will get used to that look! But I think it will be easier with these pairs than with some other similar pairs, given how pretty they are...

I really am very pleased with my buys and still considering getting more stuff from the Dolce and Gabbana Majolica collection. That's how obsessed I am with it!
Maybe a skirt?

Today I'm loving...

Dolce and Gabbana's latest Majolica themed collection.
They actually had one before, where all was blue and white, but somehow I missed that one, much to my dismay, because when I finally discovered it, pieces from the collection were very hard to get hold of. So I was so happy to discover that they actually continued that theme, just with a little yellow added!


In fact, I like this collection so much that I have decided to get some pieces from it for myself. I started with these sandals, as I tend to wear flip flops a lot but feel like Havaianas are not really suitable everywhere. So I am thinking these will be suitable for situations where I want to wear flip flops but still feel a bit more dressed up.


I do plan to get more pieces from this collection, however. It's just too nice to pass up on!

Some photos from my trip to Paris

So after sharing pics of my trip to Provence here and here, I thought it was about time I shared some photos from my trip to Paris as well. (Which reminds me, I must show you the things I got at the Louis Vuitton store at Galeries Lafayette next!)

Here are some highlights:
 Outside the Louvre
 Outside Musee D'Orsay








 Even the Apple stores are stylish in Paris!






 I am weird in the sense that I really like the doors in Paris. To the extent that I take photos of them!



As you can see, the weather was pretty grey and rainy in Paris, just like it was in Provence when I was there but I still had a wonderful time. Paris is always Paris!

Travels: Crillon Le Brave, Provence, France

Ok, so to be honest these photos were taken in May already but as Crillon Le Brave, a small village in Provence, France impressed me so much, I still wanted to share them with you, as I really think anyone planning a trip to Provence should consider staying at the hotel in the village (yes, there is only one!).
The village is charming, with amazing views and all the staff at the Crillon Le Brave hotel are amazing. Not to mention the hotel is located in historical buildings, all decorated with amazing details and furniture.




I am currently trying to set up my own herb garden, so their herb garden with adorable markers impressed me.


And what nice treatments I had at their beauty salon!
I hope I will be able to go back to this village and hotel one day!
