Oh beautiful beautiful Françoise

Oh beautiful, beautiful Francoise, such effortless beauty.
Oh yes and one of my style icons. This is a video of her singing "Comment Te Dire Adieu".
It might have been for a Dior ad but I'm not certain since there's no description
and most are in French.

Françoise Hardy - Comment Te Dire Adieu

sous aucun prétexte, je ne veux
avoir de réflexes, malheureux...
il faut que tu m'expliques, un peu plus mieux
comment te dire adieu...

mon coeur de silex vite prend feu
ton coeur de pyrex résiste au feu
je suis bien perplexe, je ne veux
me résoudre aux adieux

je sais bien qu'un ex amour n'a pas de chance... ou si peu
mais pour moi une explication vaudrait mieux...

sous aucun prétexte je ne veux
devant toi surexposer mes yeux
derrière un Kleenex je saurais mieux
comment te dire adieu...
comment te dire adieu...

tu as mis à l'index
nos nuits blanches, nos matins gris-bleu
mais pour moi une explication vaudrait mieux

sous aucun prétexte, je ne veux
devant toi surexposer mes yeux
derrière un Kleenex je saurais mieux
comment te dire adieu...

Craving Almond Tea Cakes


I should have posted this weeks ago but I totally forgot. Well, so what if it's a little late, it's still fun to post ha ha! Anyway, I was craving financiers (almond tea cakes) on Mother's Day and my husband took me and his mom to Bouchon in Yountville, CA for breakfast (post Mother's Day). Yummy yums! They are a little pricey so I gotta learn how to make these soon.

Night out

Night out 2

Night out 3

What I'm wearing:
Dress - Forever 21
Vest - Thrifted
Shoes - eBay
Leggings - Target

Went out to celebrate my brother in-law's birthday. I haven't gone to a club in more than a decade and I was feeling a bit nervous but after a couple of drinks, I was havin' a ball! Woohoo! I had such a wonderful time dancing all my troubles away. Sometimes you just need to get out of your shell and let loose. I'm so glad I had gone. For a few a hours I felt euphoric and stress-free, I really needed that.

Birthday Party

At a birthday party

At a birthday party

Thinking it was going to be a warm Saturday, I put on a lightweight, sleeveless dress under a denim jacket for my niece's birthday party. Since I am a person that always thinks "what if", I grabbed a top that I haven't worn in a while and added it to my simple attire. I was glad I did for it was a little cold and windy. The balloonish type design on my top kind of went well with the occasion.

Dream a little dream

We're all entitled to dream. This would be a perfect outfit for a walk on the beach with your loved one, as you're holding on to those pretty shoes of course, on a warm summer night. I can just hear the waves crashing... oh yes and one day I will travel to Liguria...

Love is Blue

Well, hello there!

tuesday morning coffee

I have now officially entered the "blogosphere". I've been wanting to start a blog but I've been so busy, well, I'm always so busy. Pics of my latest thrift and vintage finds will be posted real soon. I can't wait to embark on this new blogging adventure and I hope to meet new friends who think and enjoy the same things I do. It's nice to meet you!
