Ooh La La.  This is the little red book that is a guide ” to looking cool, chic, stylish and above all nonchalant, as only Parisians can” – Vogue.

I’ve spent delicious morning with Ines de la Fressange and this book that is the ultimate guide to Parisian chic.

I’m making notes.

Building a wardrobe around only seven affordable basics.

Secret Paris hotels and restaurants.

Secret Paris for  unusual places.

My cafe au lait sat untouched as I explored the wonderful world that is Paris.

Parisian Chic  is more that a book.  It is about a state of mind.   Read it and you’ll know why Parisian woman are the most elegant woman in the world.   It could just change your life.

WELCOME TO OUR WORLD

The most exciting of events – the birth of a child.

The Little Princess was seven days old and we had a grand audience.  To celebrate her arrival I made her the card to accompany her gift.    I love the vintage cards I find on THE GRAPHIC FAIRY.   This one charmed its way into my heart.

I downloaded the illustration and printed it on heavy water-colour paper.  I gave the card an old world feel.

Then I mounted it with two backgrounds,  embellished the wings with glitter, added a tiny dove and girly pink ribbon.

A birth card fit for a Princess.
