C'est tout simple ...

This is my dear friend and estheticienne, Vero, reading the biography of a well known French chef. Do NOT watch the video if you are squeamish!

"Goddess Dressing"

Mediterranean flavors of Greece and Rome emerged on the runways as a fashion trend in 2008. Soft and floating, flattering and seductive ... designer inspired Greco-Roman style gowns put the word feminine back into casual fashion. The trend continues here in the French countryside, worn with hip, gladiator style sandals to complete the look.

Holy ...

Little grapes that will soon be wine.
My dear followers ... for the 4th time in the month of May, it is a holiday week-end in France, with Monday being the Catholic holiday of Pentecote. Once again, everything is closed here in la France profonde, leaving very few people to photograph , especially for a fashion blog. I went to the local flea market (vide grenier) this morning, hoping for, at least, some colorful locals to share with you. And, yes, there were examples of real and human, but real, SEXY, and human? ... nowhere to be found (laisse tombe'). So I rode my bicycle, thinking I could photograph people walking on the country road or families enjoying their Sunday lunch out on the terrace. Twenty-five kilometers later, all I saw was an old Renault pass by with two old men and 8 teeth between them. For a blogger, it's like hitting a wall. And then it hit me ... real, sexy, and human today was ME, a bit trendy on my bicycle, wearing some old Kenzo sunglasses and and an even older ANN DEMEULEMEESTER tank top with the word Holy across my chest. It's the best I could do, considering the circumstances. Dear followers, you are always with me.
Je vous embrasse ... faith

The 3 faces of Jessie...

I am back home in Monsempron-Libos and I did not go out shooting real, sexy, and human people today. Instead, I am posting a photo from a project I did last year. The village people will be back tomorrow.

Lena Horne: June 17, 1917 - May 8, 2010

Shake that ass ...

A rainy Sunday. Nothing is open and no one is outside to photograph, unless you would like to see escargots. Suddenly, I am missing New York, The Beat, The Buzz, The Energy. So I dug around in my photo library and brought a Harlem, Spring 2009 afternoon back to life.

Window-shopping WITHOUT windows; Leche-vitrine SANS vitrine

If you are in the market for Marilyn Monroe lounging pajamas or just a simple cotton apron worn by the Mamies of the French countryside, place your order here.

"Designer" is confidence ...

Contrary to popular belief, not all French women are carrying Birkin bags, teetering on Dior pumps, while obsessing that their Hermes scarves are matching perfectly with their YSL trench.
