|Poupées Russes from Lanvin.|
It’s late and I’m running off to Paris for an appointment, but didn’t want to leave you without at least a tiny bit of entertainment. I think, for the sake of speed and facility I shall forgo transition sentences. Let’s see how it goes. . .
If you’re looking for a rather strange, but apparently “in, in, in” holiday gift idea, these Russian dolls “poupées Russes” created by the ever clever Lanvin designer, Alber Elbaz, might be just what your nearest and dearest desires. Price you might wonder? A mere 135 Euros.
For a far more glamourous cadeau, Cristal Vendôme has a collection of 35 perfume flacons — they really are gorgeous — from Daum or Lalique for example into which one can pour her very special fragrance. The bottles are truly collectibleobjets de art and would be every so pretty on a dressing table.
Prices range from approximately 185 to 400 Euros.
1.) 62 percent of French women apply mascara every morning. (Is that fascinating or what. . .?)
2.) Only six percent of French women apply sun screen products daily. (Who knew?) Meanwhile, 51 percent of Americans are more responsible, in that regard at least.
3.) 14 percent of French women wash their hair every day.
4.) 64 percent of French fashion magazine readers have confidence in the advice offered by beauty editors. (Little do they know about the pressures of advertising budgets apparently.)
|Isn’t he/she sweet?|
As I believe I have mentioned on several occasions, the dog of the moment in Paris and in our part of the countryside is the French bull dog. While perusing J.Crew the other day, i.e. Christmas shopping, I noticed the above sweater was sold out. There was an apology, but no promise of re-stocking with the same breed.
