plus que l’amour…

Let’s face it. There is just something about the French. The french fashion, french kiss, french press, french toast, french fries… all awesome. We american/english seem to have a sweet infatuation with them, sort of a love/hate thing… much more than a weekend fling, it’s that long-term on-again off-again romance that is so far from stable or logical but will never leave you be. So naturally, when one thinks of finding the most romantic place on earth, we are pretty sure that France is going to make it to the top-5 list. I mean, really, what place is more romantic than the south of France??

We stole these gorgeous photos from a friend who recently spent her honeymoon in this fabulously beautiful country. enjoy!

Bastille Day, France

Sunday marked Smith Street’s annual Bastille Day celebration where hundreds flock to the french “quadrant” of the borough of Brooklyn to play petanque and eat and drink in celebration of France’s independence, something that relates to hardly any of us 😉

Irregardless, it was a true “Sunday Funday!” and a blast, filled with interesting people and of course fashion…                         on her: sunglasses by Michael Kors, skort jumper by Top Shop, earrings by a Soho street merchant, ring from Mongo BK

on him: Frenchie by McFrencherstein


Night was a wonderful time in Brooklyn in the 1930’s. Air conditioning was unknown except in movie houses, and so was television. There was nothing to keep one in the house. Furthermore, few people owned automobiles, so there was nothing to carry one away. That left the streets and the stoops. The very fullness served as an inhibition to crime.

april showers bring may flowers…

okay, so we`re not really sure if the same applies for down under considering may is the start of their winter, but after our first week here in kingscliff, new south wales, I had no choice but to make this my mantra… something beautiful was going to come from all of this rain, right??

well, the one positive to a week of torrential downpours was that I had a little extra shopping time to find myself a 30th birthday frock. and the beauty of it all was that after the most beautiful rainbow I’ve ever seen, the rain did indeed stop..just in time for the party:)
