A French lesson (& Giveaway Winner!)

A nice little package arrived on my doorstep from the lovely folk at Modcloth this week.  So exciting! I got this little purse, which is probably supposed to be a make up bag but I thought it might be fun to use it as a clutch- how adorable is it!
And TWO French lessons no less!!

Also included was this lovely sleeveless shirt.  I love the detail of the sailboat print and the petite accordian pleats.  It's so sheer and breezy I can't wait to wear this one more when the weather warms up.
We were visiting friends who live on the outskirts of Melbourne when we found this random duck pond for my pics.  And yes, my fellow Melbournians, I am wearing open toe shoes in Winter, but I can assure you I was not outdoors for long-vrrrrrr

Sportsgirl pants, Defry denim shirt, Cue jacket , Tony Bianco heels, vintage ring.

AND, the winner of my GIVEAWAY is....
 Maria from Avenue M
Congratulations Maria- I'll be in touch!

  24. Love the little bag, definitely adding to to my ModCloth wishlist! I already speak French, so I hope I already know all the words, but I love stuff with french words on it. I have a great shower with vocab on it as well which is always entertaining.
