fab friday.

{the sartorialist}

i’ve gone and put a french twist on this week’s fab friday finds. that’s right, a little french flair for y’all. from film noir, to cafe au lait, i am a lover of all things french. especially french fries, but that’s a whole other story. viva la france!

i’d love a lovely cafe au lait, via kiddet; one of these very stylish beadnell striped snood; Brigitte Bardot’s fabulous up-do via what was i thinking; and some sexy striped french lingerie from anthropologie.

you can never watch Amélie too many times.

the perfect french swimsuit via cakies; french wire cafe chair from terrain; collecting vintage french photographs via journey and landscape; and pretty Fleur-De-Lys wine Tumblers from anthropologie.

i’d like to enjoy a crusty french baguette on a Bespoke Slatted Bench from terrain.

femme fatale whitecaps ruffled blouse from anthropologie; i’d rather have french champagne, via dear colleen;  french blue enamelware candle holder, via retrofit vintage; and a bit of self-taught french, via color room.

and of course, the casual cool of bensimon sneakers.

    hi victoria, delurking to say that i’m sitting in a tiny french village reading this! don’t get too jealous though, this particular village has a distinct 60’es suburbia feel… so your post actually helped a bit on upping the french mood.
    i agree about champagne and amélie!

    I saw those wine tumblers the other day at Anthro. I collect vintage ones, and was tempted to buy these just because they’d go so well with my collection!
