“Socks in Perfect French” was the subject line of an email I received from Mes Chaussettes Rouges, a French company that sells men’s socks. I was told that they’ve been catching on with women, as well, because everyone needs warm and well-made socks, and asked if I’d like to try a pair.
I don’t know if you know what New York has been like this winter, but let me demonstrate for you:
And it has left me feeling cold, as well as:
So when a lovely Frenchman named Jacques asks if you’d be interested in receiving warm socks from France, you say, “Oui! Bien sûr!” (And, of course, “Merci beaucoup!”)
I am honored and touched to have been nominated for the Liebster Award twice within a week or so, first by Anna of Beauty by Shortylegs and then by Dea of Her Deauty.
The Liebster Award is a way of giving accolades to blogs with 200 or less followers. Basically, most of us who work hard at our blogs and aren’t famous for it.
I’ve been so busy, that I haven’t had time to answer the questions until now, but here we go!
I promise, I’ve wanted this bag for a lot longer than just pre-Valentine’s Day, but it seemed like the perfect opportunity to share my object of lust—the Hearts Leather Bag by La Lisette in Bordeaux.

I always joke that I could never be a Parisian/French woman, because I wear too much color. I so admire the minimalistic, neutral-color–wearing aesthetic that typifies Parisian style, I just don’t think I could ever pull it off long-term. (That’s why I adore reading Valentine and Naelle’s blogs, because they’re Parisians who dress however the hell they want to. 😉 )
Normally, I’m not one to want an article of clothing or an accessory that is super well known or that everyone has (part of my problem with designer bags), but I’ve seen different variations of the Valentino Rockstud Shoes on different blogs lately, and…they just look so HOT.
If you know me at all, you would understand what my face looked like when I first found the Mrs. Pomeranz site.
*pause for you to go look*
Sometimes, Bloglovin’ is amazing. I found it through a blog that was recommended based on a different blog I had just followed. Convoluted? Yes. Kismet? Yes, indeed.
Here’s what the blog has to say about the company:
Mrs.Pomeranz is a small sewing studio located in London and Moscow. Specialized seamstresses create our beautiful, 1950s ’New Look Silhouette’ dresses from the highest quality English and Italian fabrics.
Mrs.Pomeranz was created by Dasha Pomeranz in 2009. Dasha collected 1950s dresses for several years. Running her vintage shop ‘Good Bye London’ helped Dasha realize that a classical 50-s silhouette is the most flattering cut of all: these are dresses that can make you feel a little prim and proper… but a lot more feminine! Dasha found that the demand for 50s dresses outstripped the amount of vintage gems available. So she decided to create new dresses inspired by the 50s. With her trusted constructor she carefully reworked original patterns to fit the modern female figure: vintage cuts don’t necessarily fit today’s women, they can be too full in the chest and too thin in the waist. But Mrs.Pomeranz’s dresses fit perfectly: the cut slims the figure, the length compliments the legs. Thus the ‘New Look’ collection was born: dresses full of vintage grace but with a contemporary feel.
We aim to make Mrs.Pomeranz’s dresses your favourite!
It’s all true. I couldn’t pick just one that I wanted, so I’m here to show you my top 3.
The dress Amy Adams wore to the Screen Actors Guild Awards was everything her Golden Globes dress was not, for me.
When the cast got up on stage and I saw how this looked full-length…just stunning. I love how it’s classic and modern at the same time. And the bright blue color, j’adore! Especially with the red lip.
What do you think of this one?
With an eye towards the changes that I’m working on (and if you haven’t seen my layout design poll…here it is), I was also looking for feedback on the content. I’d like to know what you like, what you think is working, and what isn’t.
I sometimes worry that something like Music Monday isn’t a big hit, since it’s not about beauty or fashion. Although I know many people like music as well. And maybe having 2 days a week where there’s an assigned feature gets boring.
So here’s your chance to let me know what you’d like to see on the blog!
Awards season is my favorite! Obviously, not for the awards themselves or the speeches, but THE DRESSES.
So here is a roundup of my favorites from this Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, in no particular order.
Sandra Bullock in Prabal Gurung
Apparently I’m in the minority, but I LOVED this gown. Loved how interesting it was and the colors. And I thought she looked freaking stunning. Her makeup was flawless. I want every bit of it.
Like everyone else, I’ve fallen for Léa Seydoux. Now that she’s collaborating with Miu Miu, I’m even more smitten.
What’s more beautiful, the woman or the clothing?!
