Next stop after Paris was visiting Versailles, the home to the Royal Palace and Marie-Antoinette. Luke and I had only planned to spend a day here but seeing as we both fell head over heels in love we pushed our schedule back to stay for an extra day. This was not the best thing to do as we had absolutely no time to spare, so changing our plans like this meant we had to race in our hired car from Versailles all the way down to Spain in a day. Still, “when you know, you know” and we knew we couldn’t leave here without spending more time wandering inside its gates.
On one hand there was grand mirrored halls and beautiful canals, and on the other there was little secret gardens and fields of tiny flowers hidden between each courtyard. Things just seemed to click for me here so finding somewhere to shoot this silk floral dress was so easy, like breathing or sleeping in.
Asos had just announced they would be offering part of their Spring/Summer 13 collection exclusively to Australia before the rest of the world called “ASOS in Your World“, so I was so excited to get my hands on it first. The silk floral applique and tulle lining makes it the perfect girly dress to wander around the ‘Temple Of Love’ (yes, this is really what it is called) on a late afternoon in Versailles.
