Mother and daughter: mariniere

6 June 2017

vestiaire mere fille mariniere made in france

Oh, it’s been really a while since I’ve talked about mariniere here… The idea came to me as I saw my younger daughter and I dressed like this. As you can imagine, the way we dress our kids says a lot about our relationship to clothes, fashion and image, I may talk about this here one day. So, of course, since there were babies, my daughters have been wearing marinieres: there have cotton marinieres or Armor Lux woolen sweaters. I love them so much ! Continue Reading…

Congrats girls. I personally know how to apply my nail polish without putting some on my nose, I can do a french manucure without stencil, draw lovely dots on my nails: that’s it.  Continue Reading…

So this year, I wanted to make a shopping-list of made in France short wedding dresses. I realised that it’s still rare. For civil weddings, this can be a good alternative for those who don’t want to wear a long dress. Continue Reading…
