IT’s not every day you meet up with an AMERICAN who lives in PARIS!
Well, thats what I did on WEDNESDAY.
I was driven to LOS GATOS, California by THE STYLE MD in her little sport car where I only put the brake on THREE times.You would know her in the blog world as Jennifer of A WELL STYLED LIFE HERE.However, her car plates state she is the STYLE MD.
We arrived to a SHOP full of white CHRISTMAS DECOR and glitter.It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL.Too bad the HELP did not have the same effect!We arrived before the AUTHOR………the lovely TISH JETT and I in my way asked WHERE IS THE LADY FROM PARIS?The woman looked at me as if I was a MORON and how could I not know she wouldn’t be there until 11:30am…………….SO, we looked around.Not a problem.
They had sent a car to fetch my lady from PARIS and she did ARRIVE.A few of us BLOGGERS were there and SO delighted to meet HER.We pounced on HER before she could take off her coat!
Here we are KILLING TIME before TISH ARRIVED!
JENNIFER admiring the gorgeous decor.I had those glittered crowns in my shop years ago the deer too.Must still be HOT sellers……..going on TEN YEARS NOW!They are pretty……..and as glitter ages it ONLY gets BETTER.Dull, tarnished…..perfect PATINA.
Now you can ADMIRE Us…….Kim’s gorgeous bag, My gorgeous necklace and Jennifer is wearing a vintage HERMES scarf.ARE WE NOT the EPITOMY of NORTHERN CALIFORNIA STYLE……….in MY WORDS SMASHING??
Waiting for TISH to sign a few books…………………featuring a Catherine Robinson cashmere shawl from LONDON.If you do not follow CASHMERE LOVER you should as she always shows beautiful people in beautiful clothing and WONDERFUL quotes.Her posts are ALWAYS short and perfect.Then I might add you should head to her SHOP HERE.I can VOUCH for the GOODS…….they are DELICIOUS.TRY THE SOCKS!I have them on NOW as I type.
This lady came all the way to LOS GATOS to meet ME!She is one of MY READERS (as you are)and we had a delightful time.Chatting and lunching getting to know each other a bit more.She had purchased the portrait lady necklace on ONE’S KING LANE and decided it did not suit HER.So, she wrapped it up and sent it to ME!Can you IMAGINE?What kindness is still out there……………..thank you LESLIE!
Her shoes I spied instantly!Don’t you ADORE them……………I DO!!!
A perfect size gift book for one of your girlfriends……………if she doesn’t already own it!
I can say I finished it in bed this morning!
I zipped through making personal notes especially the part where she met MARISA BERENSON!I adored her as a TEENAGER!
Here is the rundown of the BOOK.
If you are over 50 and need a LIFT this just might do the TRICK!
If you are under 50 YOU BETTER TAKE SOME GOOD NOTES!
I adore her adjectives here.
JOIE DE VIVRE don’t WE all WANT TO HAVE THAT?I know I DO!
SO,after reading THE BOOK I have the LITER and a HALF bucket of WATER on the kitchen sink.
I am blotting my foundation with the PALMS of my HANDS.
I am in search of SELENIUM.
I have WAY to much clothing in my closet. I may have to re-think that.
I like the fact FRENCH WOMEN have FUN when they exercise……so DO I!
I LOVE THE FACT FRENCH TELEVISION tells people NOT TO SNACK BETWEEN MEALS
!MY ITALIAN HUSBAND has ALWAYS SAID THAT TOO.
A piece of DARK chocolate instead of the whole BAR……………UGH that will be hard!
But I am trying OUT all the TIPS I have learned here.
SO, what do you think?
How do I look TODAY?
To think I dressed like this and did not even step outside today………..I think I may have gotten the MESSAGE of the book.DRESS for your own enjoyment!It will do MIRACLES for your self esteem and maybe just maybe WE together can get THOSE women OUT of their exercise clothing AFTER they par-take in a bit of FITNESS!
Let’s START a REVOLUTION.
GET DRESSED each day for YOURSELF and BE A PAINTING!
DRESS FOR YOU.
Do your part in making OUR WORLD more beautiful.
Will you JOIN in the FUN?
I sure hope so……………..
THANK YOU TISH your book was a lovely escape for me these past three days.
It gave me FOOD for THOUGHT and I LOVED MEETING YOU!
PS.Don’t forget to deliver that HUG to that REDHEAD from ME!
