It’s time to breakout, buy or continue wearing your creoles. I never stop wearing mine, but some women think they are warm weather accessories. Maybe it’s because of the big holes in the center that let the air pass through?
Two Completely Unrelated Surveys
|Mirror, mirror on the wall who’s the fairest one of all?|
The first, conducted by the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD), reported on the every day habits of citizens of 34 member countries.
The study found that the French sleep more than any other nationality, 8.5 hours on average every night, and spend more time at table — two hours daily — than the others.
The French also like to shop, spending approximately 32 minutes per day in the activity.
The second survey, on the French website, Doctissimo, (I wish I could be more scientific about this, but we don’t really care, right?) reported that 61 percent of French women consider themselves beautiful.
Well then. . .
I couldn’t discover how many women were in the study. I’m still investigating.
What Is A Marcel Anyway?
It’s a simple white tank top which began its life as a man’s undershirt. Maybe a Monsieur Marcel invented it. As we know, it has evolved from its humble origins.
The gray is from Abercrombie & Fitch which many women like because it’s long and lean, the “Marcel” is from a Belgian company, Fabuleux Marcel.
Lots of friends, and my daughter, are addicted to those from Petit Bateau.
In Case You Don’t Know. . .
Maybe I should say, on the outside chance you haven’t heard or read about the lace on Kate Middleton’s wedding dress. . . It was Made in France. Sarah Burton, designer of the gown, ordered 25 meters of lace from the dentellier Sostiss, in a width of 1.75 meters. The Alexander McQueen studio then re-embroidered 2000 motifs from the lace on tulle and over the lace, giving the gown its extraordinary couture detail — which, unfortunately, those of us watching every second of the ceremony could not see on television.
|Victoria Beckham wearing navy blue. But you probably already knew that.|
I was quite upset (everything is relative) when I thought Victoria Beckham was decked out in all black at the royal wedding. I even ranted to a couple of friends about how I couldn’t understand why the dress, sober and elegant, wasn’t in navy instead of black. It was.
I apologize Victoria. (It certainly looked like black on my television.)
