Vintage Ferragamo Top,J Brand Jeans, Self made Cowgirl Paradisiac Boots (Coming 2015!), and Paradisipack python bag. Loved Czech
Teleporting into Prague.
An unexpected delight. The weather was perfect. It’s like a little piece of fairytale history. Cobble stone streets, Pastel painted regal buildings. New friends. A miniature Eiffel tower. An Erte painting. An overload of contemporary art. A hot air balloon attraction. It’s European to the core with beautiful bridges and mom and pop shops. I visited the oldest bar, Blue Light and wrote my name on the wall. Dined next to the Charles Bridge at Kampa Park, and had an amazing lunch at Aureole for the view of the entire city! Up next —–> ITALY!
Amazing contemporary art all over the town.
The Castle at the top of the city was such a treat.
The Petrin Lookout Tower was built in 1981.
Although it is often referred to as a mini Eiffel Tower it is actually not because it is octogonal and not square.
The View from the Petrin.
I think The Czech Republic is a wonderful place and springtime is surely the time to visit.
I read an article and I am officially obsessed. Kat Von D, fellow reality television show chick from LA Ink is marrying Deadmau5 the Canadian DJ. That not only makes her smart but it makes her cooler than she was before. And NOW I have just read the article below that she, in an excerpt from an article, said “Someone asked us if we had a theme, and we’re big fans of HP Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu (it’s about a half-man, half-octopus), so we said we planned on incorporating elements of the book into our wedding. That turned into, ‘Kat Von D is getting married in scuba diving gear with snorkels and mermaids,'” she laughs. “We’ll have some underwater elements, but it’s definitely going to be above water.” Leave it to Perez Hilton and Daily Mail UK to twist that one up and make us all excited The Little Mermaid was going to have a real life sequel. Whatever, we’ll happily take this opportunity to dress a star.
So here we go! This is perfect. I make custom wedding dresses [to be documented in 2 days time in Italy, stay tuned!] and I also make bikinis. So I say we make a custom bikini wedding set and get it off to Kat Von D just in time to say I do! [Or at least for the holleymoon!]. But if someone is going to go ahead with my long voiced idea of getting married in a bikini before I get a chance to even get engaged, I hope it’s this hottie and in one of my creations! Kat? Are you out there. Get married in Paradisiac. It’s got to happen. And I have the perfect mermaid tail maker for your bridesmaids. (Eric Ducharme the Mertailor)
Ps. Can I please come to your wedding whether it’s underwater or not…I think that is going to be one hell of a party! Mermaids unite!
My instagram name is @mermaidsunite if anyone wants to find me…..since I started instagraming yes it’s true. Let get together yeah yeah yeah!
All the best. Mel Rose
