J'ADORING...

I am an idiot. Seeing bubblegum pink heart shaped sunnies much the same as those on the right, in Tesco's of all places pre-footgate and immediately thinking, "Those are sooo perfect for Gracie!" I snapped them up for a quid. And now? Gracie loved them as I thought but... I keep thinking about them. Can't see them anywhere online...I know they're silly but you can never have too many Lolita-ish novelty dressing up accessories knocking around can you?

New blog love alert: Cherry Blossom Girl I think I might love you. You like all the same things as me: The Little Prince, Bonjour Tristesse, macarons, Au Revoir Simone...Your wardrobe of Zara, H&M, bit of Chloe, bit of APC, too, too many gorge vintage bags - how do you make it all look so . perfect? There are so many good French blogs, I really must try harder to learn the language properly. Somehow it just falls straight out of my brain.

Also: Labels! I've labelled all my Paris posts so you can see them all together under the inventive title of Paris. But! At 30 posts and counting, Blogger appears to only have room for half of them. So it goes back as far as March 2006, then the rest are buried in the archives somewhere. Annoying! Maybe I'll call those ones Ancient Paris. In fact Blogger is behaving very capriciously today. I am going to leave it alone now.

Happy long weekend - or if you're in England, don't forget your brolly...

Ohh that was so fun! I was supposed to be researching stuff for my exam on Wednesday, and thought 'I'll pop in on LIB', and I've been here for about an hour reading your Paris posts. Encore! Encore!

I have scribbled down some of your recommendations, but I am with you on the find-it-for-yourself ethos.

Oh, Paris :) xx

p.s. just spotted the link to my blog - merci!

Why are the French more stylish? Is it genetic? Is it cultural? I was in Italy recently, and they seem to have something - albeit different - going as well. And the wonderful thing in these countries is that style is for women and men, young and old. While you've been eying your builder, I had my eye on some of the 50+ set at a wedding I was at in Italy recently. And they don't seem to mind the attention!

Cheers,

BB

Hello,
I can't remember how I discovered your site but it's nice to find a true aesthete. But a sensualist as well as an aesthete, which is always a good combination.

I too love APC, and am frankly obsessed with film and music but hate the theatre - more likely to suck, longer duration, and higher ticket price therefore greater risk of wasting money! I'd love to be convinced otherwise if anyone has some good recommendations...
