France ~ Simply Irresistible ~ Join the Party!



FRANCE ..... Firstly, I want to thank the gorgeous Anita for hosting this fantastic party!  France ~ Simply Irresistible!  Secondly, I want to apologize for my late arrival!  I have had huge problems with blogger so have been held up so I am arriving fashionably late! So pass me a glass of champagne and get this party started!!!!!!
For my week of France I am taking each letter each day and creating my idea of my French Paradise!
So today is "F" for Fashion!!!! 


For me France is the capital of the fashion world and is absolutely the grand dame of everything that is beautiful, creative, elegant and whimsical!!!!


I have a love of everything Chanel!  I can't help myself starting right from the one and only Coco Chanel .... her amazing life and how she came to be the head of such an extraordinary dynasty .... her story is so inspirational ..... and her legacy enduring!


The pink quilted chanel bag .... iconic ...


The Marie Antoinette inspired collection that was filmed at Versailles .... gorgeous,  frothy confections the colours of mint green, duck egg blue and shell pink .... heaven!


Karl Lagerfeld's genius is extraordinary ..... French Fashion is Exquisite!


so come for a walk with me through my France this week ...


we will have a wonderful time and don't forget to put on your best coat and maybe bring some bathers as we will be heading south to the riviera of course .....


This bag is a must to bring but could I borrow it perhaps!



so close your eyes .....


and we will escape to ....


MY FRENCH PARADISE


this is just the beginning and I have so much more to show you so we can dream together and live the magic of France!

MA REINE! Bonjour! SO good to see you have started your luscious posts! Thank you for hopping on board even if you had problems with Blogger; I started experiencing those problems yesterday as I was attempting to prepare my post for NEXT WEEK. I could not load up photos!

OK, your fashion dreams are FANTASTIC. Of course France has everything to offer in all departments, and fashion FIRST! Lovely images of froth and ethereal beauty my queen. Enjoy the fun and visit the others so they know you are now ON. Many happy moments to you, as I know many of us are really enjoying the feeling of actually traveling! BISOUS BISOUS! Anita

I can't imagine wearing clothes like this, what fun that would be! But one must weigh less than 99 pounds to pull if off properly.

What a wonderful idea! What is more perfect for "F" than fashion and the icon of French fashion, Chanel! This is going to be a fun week!!

Linda Primmer said...

Hello Frances. What fun to be able to wear these lovely outfits. Chanel is so gorgeous! The models can get away with wearing a potato sack and look beautiful. Thanks for sharing a lovely post. From your newest follower, Linda
