paris fashion week, macaroons, and elephant bruises

so here, finally, are some of the photographs of i took of the shows in paris.
i went to see sophia kokosalaki, andrew gn, emanuel ungaro, and bernhard willhelm.
they were all so amazing. the sophia kokosalaki show was flowy and cute with gold glittered heels. andrew gn, i was so close, right near the front, the jewels and gems are fantastic. emanuel ungaro... well it's emanuel ungaro!!! pure perfection. bernhard willhelm- i hadn't heard of them until then, so quirky and oddly cute. didn't get any amazing pictures at that one though.
(i know i spelt kokosalaki wrong here... silly me)
in my last post i completely forgot to write about the macaroons! i finally got my hands on some whilst in paris. i bought a handful for mother and i. we had them with tea. they are the cutest pastry-cakes i have seen for quite some time. and what wonderful colours they come in. these are just a small snippet of beautiful colours you can buy.for once having a gigantic bruise wasn't so terrible. (click on the elephant for a closer peek) i hope the next bruise will be a giraffe. and the next a pig!
my suitcase gave me this bruise with all the to-ing and fro-ing between trains i did on my journey to paris. but never mind, at least it wasn't a boring circle. and it made my friends giggle with amazement, we drew around it everyday whilst i was there.
