You probably thought you were about to read and/or see something really exciting. You did, didn't you?
But wait. . . I'm off to Paris to do some pre-travel to the States shopping and I am about to buy a new French product I didn't know existed until last week.
Now I have your attention. Am I right?
It is a very exciting item and I must examine it carefully before I commit, but I did have an initial coup de foudre on my first encounter. It was the color that made me hesitate, however after intensive research I discovered the hue of my dreams exists so I'm off to examine its merits.
Tomorrow I will tell you everything and then you can tell me if you like it as much as I do. My-Reason-For-Living-In-France said "it's way too shiny," but he's wrong. It is just perfectly shiny.
You'll see and then you can weigh in with me or with MRFLIF. He does tend to be conservative in these matters.

Thank you, thank you for your lovely, lovely comments about Ella Madeleine. I cannot wait to see her. I saw the sweetest little jeans dress the other day, but I think it requires -- for the proper look if you will -- a child who can stand up. Maybe I'll buy it in size one year or 18 months. I'm new at this, everything looks so tiny. It just doesn't make sense. . .
My great friend, Jean Rafferty, who has three granddaughters told me about a shop in Neuilly (the ultra chic "suburb" that snuggles up against the 16th and 17th arrondissements) that has dresses with smocking. Smocking! I love smocking. She also advised me to buy now because she has discovered that smocking days are not long-lived, as in, little girls, when they start talking and make their desires vociferously clear, only want to wear jeans and T-shirts.
A demain mes très, très, très, chers amis.
