Viva Espana

I'm back from Spain, back to rain and work... Ahh, it's a hard old life! 
Madrid was such a vibrant and beautiful city, and the weather was so lovely! Our hotel faced onto one of the main streets (Gran Via) and when Spain won their semi-final (of Euro2008) there were carhorns going all night! Anyone else supporting Spain in the final? And any Germany supporters?
I think I will simply put up a few photos from the trip and a couple of outfits I managed to document, I'm happy to be back and catching up on everyone's posts I've missed!

  18. Hi from Paris

    I am right now covering the Paris fashion week that began last week and still for few days,
    I try to forget nobody interested in fashion and style like you because I know that it could help you to find some inspiration for your coming styles.
    Dior, Hermès, Agnès B... I hope you'll like my photo coverage.

    have a great evening and keep on being stylish

  37. Wow! the architecture looks amazing! Loving the yellow shoes in the last picture.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks everyone, I did indeed have a lovely time, and I agree - the architecture was amazing!

    Also, anon, I will most deffo be wearing tights again to cover up my legs in rainy, old England!

    Oh and I'd have loved to have been in Madrid last night for the final! Or today for the Spanish team's ride through the city with the cup! I'm sure the atmosphere would be amazing - I loved the unity of it all on the night of their win in the quarter-finals; the whole city beeping car horns and chanting through the streets for the same, happy reason!
