Wannabe A French Girl?

Wanna be a French girl?
Silly question. Who doesn't?? Well now you can!
Send me a nice CLEAR head shot of YOU. And I'll put you on a French body. More details of the cost $$ here: The February $100 Deal ends Sunday Feb 28th...well it was going to, until I paid AirFrance for their horribly $$$ ticket.
The deal is I put your head on a French body, wearing French clothes, carrying a high-end Designer shopping bag.Here is Parisienne Anne. She's holding a designer bag.
. Shopping at Guerlain.
 Alex's gift for her Mom's birthday
I put Alex and her mom in a French trench, jeans, ballerinas.
You can wear a Burberry raincoat, a Hermes scarf too.
Guerlain Your pet wants to go shopping at Guerlain too.

J’aimerais bien avoir un autre corps!!!!
Malheureusement ma tete est déjà sur un corps francais qui a vu pas mal d’annees!!!
J’ai aussi oublie de vous dire que ma petite Lily a le meme collier que votre petite chienne, mais le sien est rouge et viens des Galeries Lafayette…

Merci beaucoup pour toutes ces photos de ma ville favorite, et aussi pour votre sense de l’humour… et votre talent…

As always, thanks for the daily dose of Parisian magic - it makes it easier to get up in the morning with your emails in my inbox. You have inspired me to take an adult education French course (so far, I can only ask what time it is, and things like, "is that a pen? No, it is not a pen.") and I am working up the motivation to try to bake my first batch of macarons at some point.

Where do women who aspire to look like French girls buy their ballerina shoes in the States?
I love your work and your drawing style and have bought and read and enjoyed many of the books you have mentioned on your blog. Thanks.

Nikon said...

Humph! Not many men there! Just a lot of women with black bars over their eyes!
Is there a discount for men? You won't have to draw shopping bags - think of the time you'll save.......

Giulia said...

Very cute, you. I saw you over at Merisi's & had to say sorry about the snow. Still hoping for power to stay on here. So far, so good.

As to question above...plenty of French friends in DC area buy their shoes here as well as on trips back home (which are usually Italian, btw). Lucky recipient here. But as for hordes of regular French women buying Chanel ballerinas--no way.

ciao & good weekend.

PS: Carol--are you going to Paris soon? You mention paying for tkt but don't know if it was for future or past.:)

You can certainly find ballerinas here but they are very overpriced IMO
Hirica French Ballerinas on 985 Lexington sells only French ballerinas

I noticed when I lived in Paris that many French women carry name-brand paper shopping bags (Bon Marche, Hermes, etc) the way we carry a fabric tote. I thought this was rather tacky. Then I read "Bon Chic, Bon Genre" (the French version of "The Preppy Handbook" or "Sloane Rangers" circa 1980) and discovered that this is considered very chic. I save my paper shopping bags for carrying items to GoodWill.

With this new streamlined version of
Portraits in Paree, methinks you are going to be one very busy artist, when you get back from your next jaunt.
Great idea!

Pat said...

I haven't said hi for a while so I thought I would take the time to let you know that I love, love, love visiting Paris with you.
