|Navy silk dress by Bellerose — pretty on the hanger, gorgeous on the body (Andrea’s body).|
Welcome to the third and final installment of the series “What My Daughter Bought In France.”
Today we shall examine wardrobe and accessories. The first week was devoted to the home and kitchen, the second beauty and maintenance thus leaving us with the logical third category of clothes and their compliments.
|Bordeaux suede ballerines. Since wine, or oxblood as some are calling the color –those of us in France like wine better — is the color of the moment ballerinas are a snappy, stylish way to participate in the season’s hot trend.|
Because one of my favorite pass times is outfitting Andrea, many of the items she neatly packed in her suitcase were gifts from me. They included two white cotton blouses: one long-sleeved, collar-less with a single large pleat down the front, the other V-neck with blouse-y sleeves. Unfortunately we have no photos.
|The leather tote which, of course doubles as a “purse” but can accommodate lunch, gym clothes and work papers.|
|The famous “folds-up into almost nothing” Longchamp tote.|
She also added a navy silk dress with large ecru dots and a pair of Bordeaux suede ballerinas to her bag and a bright orange leather tote. She replaced her beige Longchamp foldable tote, which literally disintegrated after years of loyal service, with a new one in “graphite” supposedly a color exclusive to France.
