POSTCARD FROM PORTMEIRION

A few weeks ago I went on a quick road trip to Wales and saw one of the most beautiful places in UK! Who would have thought that only 1,5 hr away there is a place where I can feel like I’m in Italy!? A small man made village called Portmeirion is a well hidden gem, and I can recommend it to everyone as a must see.
For a start, it’s a complete village of architecturally amazing buildings set on its own private peninsula overlooking sand, sea and mountain. It was the creation of iconoclast and architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who populated his make-believe village with Italianate, oriental and Tudor-style buildings. Featuring bright Mediterranean inspired colours and close proximity to the seaside, this quirky little place has attracted many film makers.

Owned by a charitable trust it is open year round with cafes, shops, hotels, and self catered cottages. Go and see the amazing architectural surrealism of Portmeirion in all its glory during summer when it’s beautiful gardens are blooming with flowers and tropical plants. It is definitely my favourite place so far for my blog’s photo-shoots. The proximity of Deudraeth Castle makes it even more special.

You can find more information about the village here: http://www.portmeirion-village.com/

About the dress…it looks pretty much like the one from Alberta Ferretti, but …it’s not ;) I couldn’t get hold of the original one so I gave in to temptation and ordered a look-a-like from a clothing website that is very popular with fashion bloggers. Being sceptical that the quality will be poor I didn’t have high expectations. But…. I was wrong and it actually came out pretty good for what you pay. I’m well pleased with it , what do you think?

Oh wow, this is quite possibly one of my favourite posts of all time! You wear that colourful dress so far, it could just as well be designer and I adore how you've matched your shoes with the look. I've actually visited Portmeirion before and I can vouch for it's unbelievably beauty - the people are lovely in that area it seems, too! Have a wonderful weekend when we get there :)

This is so damn cool. Don't know how you could match so well your shoes with the dress, but it looks lovely. I love online shops, because they have cute cheap clothes at not so worse quality.
