An inspiring trip to Paris!

Paris view
Me and my oldest daughter got a trip to Paris from my husband for Christmas. Wow what a gift! We went in January, and had great fun. Paris was a bit cold but it was nothing in comparison with back home in Sweden :)
During our four days there we did lots of fun stuff. We went shopping of course:) and visited museeums. It was an incredible fashion exhibition that showed high fashion (haute couture) from Year 1990-2010 at Musee de la Mode et Textile at the Louvre. Amazing garments from among others, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano & Vivien Westwood. I was not allowed to take photos inside the exhibition… sorry.
