La Tour Eiffel

Viewing the Eiffel Tower is a must when visiting Paris.

Constructed by Gustave Eiffel as an entry arch to the 1889 World's Fair, Gustave designed, built, and used his own money and resources to built this great monument.  He even stayed under the budget given to him!

When visiting, get there early.  Best thing to do is buy timed tickets ahead of time, on their official website:  When you are ready to go, get there at least 30 minutes before.  A view from the summit is a must but the best time to go is at dusk, before the sun sets.  However, ride up when it is dark to view Paris at night, in the illuminations of the lighted tower.

The outfit during the day hike:
Bella Sisters blazer (
Green rabit's fur scarf from Nordstrom
American Apparel lace body suit
Vintage Levi's 501 cut-offs
Fossil belt
Wolford's tights
Born boots
