Parlez-Vous Français?

This outfit is definitely French inspired.  I have a soft spot for most things French, from movies (Amélie) to music (Cara Bruni – idk what you think of her hooking up with the President, but she has a pretty voice) and for whatever reason, I throw stripes in to that category as well.  They just have that ‘je ne sais quoi’. 😛


We recently did a ton of shopping and re-visited an old favourite, Emery, where I found this great striped sweater and pair of skinny, black, zippered pants/leggings bundled up in one outfit, Dora.  The legging bottoms extend on to the foot a little bit, a look I love with ballet slippers or flats. Something I’ve always loved about Emery is they are one of the few places that I wear the outfit as-is out of the folder.  I’m constantly mixing and matching, but sometimes it’s nice to just right click and add to outfit.

Moving on, all I needed were a few accessories, and luckily this sweet little hairstyle from !lamb doubled as an accessory with its beret, though I (and just about everyone on Plurk) are eagerly awaiting hatless versions.  Gloves, specs, flats, and a French designer bag by Polina Kaestner and I am ready to tuck myself in to a café for the rest of the day.

Now that I feel Paris bound, I will leave you with a little ditty by the First Lady of France. À la prochaine!

    @ Elliott – onoes! I know I’ve been linking to images that we upload to imageshack, but I will go in and re-upload them direct from the hard drive. Just out of curiousity, are you using Firefox or Internet Explorer?

    @ Ana – hahah you really are on a bag kick! Thank you for stopping by <33

  5. I’m using internet explorer, which could be the cause of my problems. I just tried looking in Firefox and last weeks post came up but this weeks didn’t. Oh well it could just be me.

  6. Hmmm well that’s not good! I re-uploaded the previous 2 posts in jpg format. We typically use png. and I know that looks better in Firefox, but it should still show up in IE as far as I know. Hopefully that will help some! If not, feel free to IM me in-world.
