What to do when you're stuck at an airport with a two hour delay? Usually you have a handful of options; find some food, take a snooze or hit the shops. I tend to gravitate to the latter and on one recent occasion I did just that. In late August during a flight delay in Barcelona airport I came across a variety of fab finds.
First stop was the Adolfo Dominguez boutique where I picked up this gorgeous two piece monochrome printed set. I love the bell sleeve and the high neck detail that makes it oh so chic. I instantly knew it would be perfect for Paris fashion week, even though I had to wait a whole month to wear it...major sigh! ;)
Alas, wear it I did, and to the Elie Saab show nonetheless. Set in the Tuleries Gardens, it was a totally magical experience. I have been a major fan of his exquisite craftsmanship so it was such a privilege to see the designs in real life. This Spring summer collection had a disco feel throughout with glimpses of metallics, star embellishments and even stardust sprinkled on the runway.
Having my hair braided into an updo and throwing on a pearl necklace made me feel like the ultimate Mademoiselle walking the streets of Paris!
