En Francais...

"I've been shopping all my life and still have nothing to wear."
- Author Unknown



 Yesterday was a blur of food and culture. 
I went down to the viaduct where i was hit by a wave of french rugby supporters. Flags were being waved in every direction and it was 10:00 in the morning and the big game didn't even start till 8:30 later that night! 
Being down in New Zealand and watching the rugby world cup unfold is amazing. People are so friendly to each other and i have never seen this country so alive! every second car that drives past me as i walk to school will have at least one flag stuck to a window.
I wont go into the boring details of every rugby game but i will do what a fashion blogger does best and show you some pictures and my outfit!


The "Cloud" (click to see what i'm talking about) was full of things to do during the day when there were no games. Even though im not a tourist, i was still fascinated by all the different cultural activities. In one corner there were women doing henna on peoples hands (see more photos below) and then lovely Cook Island women on the other side of the room making beautiful flower headbands. There was also face painting going on oh and did i mention the amount of food around?!? 




I also loved the atmosphere. There were so many french singing and dancing around. My friend and I followed a ton of French people around listening in on there conversations and practicing our own French. Here's a pic of these French guys all dressed up taking a photo with some All Black fans!




So hows life and fashion going on other parts of the world?

  2. Wow, this is amazing.
    I am so envious of you! Look at what you're apart of! I wish I could be using my french more often but I've been away from it for more than a year (almost two now) so I'm so rusty I wouldn't even know where to begin. It's sad really!

    Your outfit is LOVELY! Gorgeous! Thank you so much for the comment!

  22. I think this what every woman says at one point:
    "I've been shopping all my life and still have nothing to wear."
    Nice quote.
