Bresil week is coming to Le Bon Marche on Wednesday the 10th - I went to take a peek last Saturday
I am sooo saudage do Bresil if someone handed me a ticket today I would be off and away immediatement! I mean it...
I thought maybe this gorgeous scarf was part of the upcoming Bresil promotion but vendeuse L. said, non, not till Wednesday. I would have bought it (55€) but I didn't have my credit cards on me. More about that later.
L. Could easily pass as a Braziliera IMHO. L. said she was wearing L'Oreal eyeliner (which she says...shhh also makes YSL). Natch I ran off to Monoprix and bought it (see above) but so far I'm not looking gorge like L.
If you want to catch what Parisians are wearing walk next door to Le Grand Epicerie. Show up late on a Saturday when every chic chick does her shopping for some insane reason - the lines at the cash register are truly daunting. This is perhaps the chicest Parisian I've seen ever. This subtle jacket with the ruffled peplum is incroyable in my books. Non?
I'm speechless with admiration...
It's still chilly here and the BIG scarf is still in.
Another well dressed Parisian
Les mecs/guys are wearing terrif scarves too by the way
These two Bon Marche trainees had matching tuxedo stripes down the sides of their tights. Mignon non?
Leopard accessories will Always be IN in Paris and they don't have to match.
*Speaking of essential accessories here's the latest scam you should know about. Rick got 'skimmed' I think it's called. Someone on the street or anywhere can scan you with a phone-like gizmo completely without your knowing it. And boom, -$13,000 short 2 weeks later when the bank calls, you find out ALL of your info was taken. PIN numbers and everything. It helps if your credit cards are stacked on top of each other. Then the reading is a mashup. But for safety sake get a little metal box for your cards or use tin foil on cardboard like Rick did front and back.
Flight attendant D. got her metal box in Tokyo for 100 yen/$1.04. I looked and so far they're 25 euros and come from Spalding's in NYC. Amazon has one for $5 bucks. I'm not carrying my credit cards till I get one. Be sure and get yours before you travel. Better safe than sorry. Muji carries them too.
Will I see any PBers at Bresil at Bon Marche?
And the darling PB Braziliera who kindly offered to bring me a pair of Havaianas and I idiotically said no,
YES YES I WANT THEM! Por favore
Size 9 1/2 any color any which way.
Quelle idiot moi :(
Bom dia + Tudo Bom
