Sammy Does Europe

with 13 Comments

Happy Monday Let'sTalkStyl'ers. There have been some random cyber rumors floating around the interwebs that your dear blogging hostess with the mostest is taking a trip. I confirm that these rumers are indeed, true.

Sammy is going abroad.

Instead of just taking random dips in the Atlantic Ocean, I will be crossing it and getting two stamps in my passport during the process. In two days I will see London, I will see France... Hopefully I will not see any flasher's underpants on the tube or metro.

I'm already in a London state of mind. I've had an unexplainable urge for fish and chips and although I haven't tried driving on the wrong side of the road, I did try on a Go International dress from Target backwards (it looked better that way).

My itinerary is as follows, just in case you should need me and my fashion expertise:

Part One:

*Flying into London Heathrow
*Packing on the pounds (as in currency)
*Shopping at Harrods, Topshop, Marks & Spencer, Stella McCartney and other fine British establishments
*Trying to make the guards at Buckingham Palace laugh
*Getting bloody sloshed (British slang for drunk) at some fine British pubs
*Having high tea with the Queen
*Trying on the Queen's jewels after we both get sloshed
*Shopping at more fine British establishments


Part Two:

*Taking the chunnel into Paris
*Exchanging my pounds for euros
*Shopping at fine French establishments i.e. Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, (not Christian Dior)
*Eating my weight worth of croissants
*Climbing the stairs of the Eiffel Tower to work off those croissants
*Getting ivre (French for sloshed/drunk) at multiple fine French bistros
*Hitting the Louvre
*Solving the DaVinci Code
*More French shopping where I will buy French perfume, French lingerie, French champagne, and French fries from L'McDonalds.

I will try to pop in every now and then to fill you in on Operation International Excursion - a quest to improve foreign cute clothes shopping relations.

In the meantime, here are a few numbers to keep handy in case your favorite blogger gets herself in difficulté (French for trouble).

US Embassy in London: 020 7499 9000
US Embassy in France: 01 43 12 22 22

Bon voyage!
