I’m just a bit obsessed with stripes. I’m not sure that you knew that about me. Just in case you’re not familiar…
I have one or two Marinière, or Breton stripe, shirts (like so [Petit Bateau is classic, obvi], but lately I have been hankering for a Breton stripe dress.
(The history of the Marinière is really interesting, if you’re a nerd like me. It was originally the uniform of the French navy [hence the “Marinière”], who hailed from Brittany [hence the “Breton stripe”. If you want to read more, I loved this article.)
For this Wishlist Wednesday, I’m going with something a little more abstract/theoretical. We all know how much I love my red lipstick, but I’ve yet to nail down the perfect red lip eye makeup.
I know it’s very French to wear red lips with no eye makeup, just mascara, but I feel like my eye shape and features look washed out and dull without both shadow and liner. But then when I use very nude, natural colors, I feel like I need something more.
Then the other night I saw this photo of Olivia Palermo (I don’t even really know who she is or why she’s famous, but she’s gorgeous, has great style, and her boyfriendfiance is a stone fox.)
