|Necklace by Marie-Hélène de Taillac. Not much to say really, except perhaps: "Oh, merci darling, you shouldn't have. Can you help me fasten it in back?|
Where to start? A weather report perhaps?
Temperatures unseasonably warm, sun pouring down, trees, flowers, cats, dogs, and, yes, the general population unseasonably/unreasonably happy as a result of the "natural light therapy." However, there's always a "but" or a "however," farmers are worried about the paucity of rain. I best hit the streets with my camera and my patter, n'est-ce pas?
Are you sitting there wondering if I have anything interesting to say today? Here it comes. . .
Still On Board
The marineres are coming out of winter storage again. If you never want to see another one in blue and white, you have several options from Armor Lux .
I rather like the pale blue with the navy and the preppy navy and green. The blue on blue would be quite snappy beneath a navy blazer. The red and white looks fresh too.
Is It Just Me?
When I first saw these shoes from the Charlotte Olympia summer collection, I thought, "terrifying." On second inspection I realized they are not only dangerous, but also labeled as such. Note the banana peel sides mixed among the fruit salad motif.
A Little Tough Love Never Hurts
Or does it?
This week's French Elle has a feature entitled: "23 Trucs Pour Avoir L'Air Moins Fatiguée" or "23 Tricks to Appear Less Tired" -- intriguing, non?
Joelle Ciocco, the "guru of beautiful skin" suggests we slap our faces after cleansing in the morning. It's extremely "tonic" apparently and gives us nice rosy cheeks. (OK, she did say, "gently.")
Jewelry designer Marie-Hélène de Taillac has a less aggressive approach to the subject, sparkly bijoux to reflect light on our faces. (One doesn't preclude the other of course.)
Madame de Taillac is very specific in her counsel:
1.) Young women should choose colored stones like rose tourmaline, rubellite in deep rose, red spinel or a "tres claire" emerald.
|Not quite diamonds, but not bad. 18 karat gold with smokey quartz.|
2.) More mature women (or those more timid, she adds) should opt for gold, diamonds and/or pearls.
All bijoux pictured are of her design. Kinda makes you want a little something, non?
