I posted some pictures from our trip on my facebook page, but since then I have edited and watermarked some of the better ones that I'll share for all of my blogging friends! :)
We went to London first and hit all the major attractions:
|The National Gallery|
This might have been my favorite thing to photograph, it was so stunning during the day and night!
|Tower of London|
Right next to the Tower of London.
And...on to Paris!
|The detail on the walls|
|Statue in the gardens|
|The Eiffel Tower|
|The Eiffel Tower|
|Lovers at the Eiffel Tower|
Haha, okay I have no idea if these random strangers are lover or not, but what a great picture! My lovely husband took this one.
|Arc de Triomphe|
Was very very big, much bigger than I thought it would be.
We took around 800 pictures, so obviously these are just a few. I was so happy that we were able to meet up with my roommate from college and her fiance in Paris as well!
Oh, and if anyone is wondering, AR squared Photography is because Andrew and I have the same initials, and we are math/chemistry nerds, hence the "squared" part. :)
And on to my attempted thrift store transformation for this week....
Here is the story:
I worked on this dress which I've decided that I don't like so much now...it happens to all of us right? So, I have plans to use the fabric for a project in the future.
Also, Andrew is building a new computer and somehow I have lost the original picture of this dress that I took (and put on his computer and not my laptop)...so I'm sorry for this week being a disappointment! Here are the pictures I do have:
The original top.
I cut it off and made it into a strapless top.
So this is what I finished with. I was going to shorten it, but then I decided that I will (most likely) be using the fabric for something else, so I didn't want to cut any off.
Next week, we will be back on track! :)
Side note: I tried to find some dresses on our trip, but I only found one vintage resale shop and wow, was it expensive!
