Where my English friends can buy Parisian fashion

Bonprix French fashion. It just rocks, doesn't it? For those who read my blog regularly, you all know how passionate/obsessed/a little unhealthily fanatical I am about clothes and living in Paris just makes that WORSE. I have already mentioned how to shop Paris and French style on the internet but here is the best place to get French fashion to your doorstep: Bonprix. It's a UK site which basically sells French fashion and is super for women, men, kids and the added bonus is that the prices are just fabulous, totally reasonable!

Views from a bridge – winter light, low light

Ile de la Cité ParisBridges in ParisGothic architecture Paris I love love love to stroll around certain areas of Paris on a Sunday.
