When In Paris… Strike A Pose By The Extravagant Pont Alexandre III

R03Paris to me has two faces, or perhaps should I say, Paris is a woman with double identities.
In Quartier Latin; Montmartre and mostly down the left bank, I see her as this Bohemian chick. When I turn around to Grand Palais; Petit Palais; the Louvre and so on.., she suddenly becomes an ornate and splendid royalty.

There is no doubt that my favourite bridge in the world – Pont Alexandre III – belongs to Paris’ regal self!
I utterly adore this bridge for no other reason than it is simply the most extravagant and stunning bridge I have ever seen!
So, this is how I would channel the essence of Paris’ glamour face…

My vintage Paola Frani beige dress is tube beaded throughout the lining. These tube-beads are all see-through so you can hardly notice them from a distance. My half cardigan is also decorated with beads. When I channel a glamorous look, I prefer to pick a beaded creation.
While on holiday, these garments with toned-down beads are great choices as they are not overly done, so even if we wear them during the day, we are not turning heads for the wrong reasons.

Since I was in my element and feeling so perky… Why not strike a pose!!!
