I love Paris! I went for the first time in the summer of 2008 with my boyfriend and my mom on a whirlwind tour of Europe. It was everything I expected and more! I will never forget looking up at the Eiffel Tower at dusk and seeing it burst into light. I know some people think the twinkling lights are tacky, but that moment was magical for me.
I was doing a necessary purge of my closet a while back and found a plain black skirt that doesn’t get worn very often and I though it didn’t deserve such neglect! It’s nothing special but would be a perfect canvas for some kind of embellishment! I’ve been dabbling in embroidery lately and got a fabulous book called A Rainbow of Stitches for Christmas and was dying to put it to use. Enter the Eiffel Tower. Perfection! I was so happy with the final product. Neglected black skirt becomes a new favourite! Success!
