Praha

So I've been lost in translation for almost a week now, that's what happens when you travel and don't have wi-fi access.
None the less I have found myself on the other side of the world to Hong Kong in the beautiful city of Prague.
I've not been here before and it's really quite impressive once you get past all the tourist traps and hideous shops selling everything from Babushka dolls(which are Russian!) to coasters and t-shirts that say 'Czech me Out!'
The shopping here is virtually non existent in terms of clothes and shoes(well, compared with where I've just been!)
However, not to be outdone I have made it my mission to come across off beat and one off little trinkets so that at least I can walk away with an authentic piece of Prague in my pocket.
Here is however what I purchased before I even landed in the city, just a few essentials really:


For those of you in of the YSL Top Secrets range and Touche Eclat I can see why you keep it to yourself- this stuff is amazing!!
I promise a close up of the brooch but it's the only thing I've bought here so far and I adore it so much I went back to get another one! Looks quite cool on each lapel.

Beautiful graffiti in Mala Strana.
Trench: Zara
Boots: MK One
Scarf: H&M
Jeans: MK One

Prague is the perfect city for posing for outfit shots with all its amazing architecture. The brooch look quite regal even from a distance. I'm quite jealous that your travels are still continuing, and I'm sure you're having a wonderful time. How are the feet from all the walking through shops? I notice you are sensibly (and stylishly)shod.

I'm glad LM hasn't fallen victim to some gruesome Hostel-esque untimely ending...don't forget to pick me up some of that quality Czech crystal, you know the stuff - it was big in the 80's!

I can't wait to see a close up of the brooch, it looks gorgeous. It's lovely to see your chic outfits against such amazing backgrounds, the graffiti in Prague is incredible.
YSL Touche Eclat is a secret weapon, isn't it?

Definitely essentials! :) And the brooch is stunning, even from a distance. It looks wonderfully ornate.

Glad to see that you are alive and well... and still shopping up a storm! I've read amazing things about this YSL Top Secrets stuff, but $90 aussie dollars is a bit steep. Let me know how you go with it! xx

Have a nice time in Prague. Quite a change after Hong Kong!

I was in Praque too - in 2003 year. Amazing place. It is worth to see also Ceski Crumlov or Karlove Vary- also beautiful. This year I was in Budapest. You can see some pictures I can recommend this city too.
