Bonjour! Haute Couture in Paris

When I was a little girl I used to love watching black and white films on a Sunday, I would watch them all morning and afternoon and then after Sunday lunch at my Grandparents house, I'd go upstairs and pull out all my Nan's frilly night dresses, her white bedsheets and make myself the most beautiful dresses using safety pins and whatever I else I could find.  You can just imagine how beautiful I looked.  In my head I looked like Doris Day in Calamity Jane, after the make-over.  Realistically I was running around in pink wellies, a bed sheet and my Nan's nightie (my Uncle Steven has photographs of this somewhere).

Versace Autumn/Winter 2014-15 Couture

As I got older, this Sunday ritual stopped and I started to read fashion magazines like Vogue and my collection started to become pretty impressive (I still have all my hard copies on my bookshelf at home).

Time passed but my love of fashion didn't and now I am particularly fond of Couture fashion and how it is all created.

This week, news has been filtering through from Paris all week now and I have been overwhelmed by the beauty of the dresses that I have seen pictures of.

Here are my favourites below...

    1. I think the pink one is my favourite too, or maybe the white one! They're just so pretty I can't choose... xo
