shopping ~ my latest PURCHASES


The Chinoiserie Day Bag from Mimco. Doc frame opening with soft and unstructured body all in lightweight two tone sheep skin leather. Tassel detailing adds a touch of whimsy to a ladylike style with adjustable strap and top handle.

Colour Block Knit and the 3/4 sleeve knit both from Country Road.

Lessons Learned from Madame Chic, Shoestring Chic (a gift for a friend) and Bringing Up Bebe from Amazon.
As my readers may know I am infatuated with Paris and hope to take my daughters their in the near future.

Lessons Learned from Madame Chic is written by Jennifer Scott. Here is a little description from her blog.....

Book Description:

'Have you ever wondered what everyday life is like inside a modern, aristocratic Parisian household? The French are notoriously secretive when it comes to their private lives but Jennifer L. Scott’s Lessons from Madame Chic: The Top 20 Things I Learned While Living in Paris, uncovers the very secrets and lifestyle traits that allow Parisians to live such fulfilling and passionate lives. Each chapter reveals a valuable lesson Jennifer learned while living behind Famille Chic’s doors in the exclusive 16th arrondissement in Paris. After the lesson is revealed, she provides tips and musings on how to translate the lesson to your own life. Some of the topics explored include: cultivating an air of mystery, le no makeup look, 10 item wardrobe, rejection of new materialism, the art of femininity and life as a formal affair.'

Bringing Up Bebe by Pamela Bruckerman. From the blog 

The French make it look easy: small babies sleep through the night, toddlers calmly eat four-course lunches, well-dressed mothers chat on the edge of the playground rather than running around after their children, and they hardly ever shout. Pamela Druckerman left New York for Paris and soon found herself with an English husband and several children. While her daughter was throwing food around a restaurant, French children of the same age would be enjoying the cheese course. Druckerman embarked on a painstaking study of parenting à la française. The result is amusing, helpful and charmingly self-effacing. You can read more on the Pamela Bruckerman's Blog.
