Speaking of closets…I think I literally have like 8 striped black & white, navy & white, red & white, gray & white, yellow & white striped, bateau 3/4 length sleeve tops…so French of me, oui? I mean, truly I am a self proclaimed francophile with my love of all things from the motherland…I mean…I AM half French you know.
Saturday mornings at the Westside Market I grab a crepe from the Crépes De Luxe and when I have more time on my hands I indulge in La Petite Triangle. If I’m in the mood for french food I enjoy La Albatros and insist on some french bubbles and epoissee; French stinky cheese. When I visit the Shaker Square market I sneak a macaron from La Coquette Bakery…let’s just say…this girls LOVES the yummy treats from across the pond.
If my little pug would sit in my rattan bike basket, you might find us riding to work humming the tunes of my favorites films Amélie and Priceless…another good one starring french sweetheart Audrey Tautou. I named our design business both a rolling hills village in France and my favorite shade of green Chartreuse. I have a collection of Eiffel towers that family and friends have brought me back and I have purchased from my trips up the pretty lady. I’m telling you I’m a wee bit of an all french enthusiast
THAT IS WHY…I am SO SO excited for this Sunday’s Hingetown’s “ohh lah lah” french inspired market! I can’t wait to stroll through the romantic streets, sip bubbly, ride bikes, indulge in croissants and baguettes…all while avoiding the long international flight. Don’t miss the french fun…see you there!
