Please excuse our little absence from our blog. We had our wonderful event with Astier de Villatte- thank you all so much for coming, for your orders and all your enthusiasm. It is a special book indeed and we were so happy to have Benoît and Ivan come to Tucson to sign them and meet so many of you! Right after the event, I shipped out all the preorders and hopped on a plane for my family summer trip and am just getting settled. My mom is running the shop for a while and I am working from France :) I brought my copy of Ma Vie A Paris to discover some places I haven't been to before. It's been fun to try out some of Ivan and Benoît's favorite places :) The first day we were here, we were on a bus headed to Le Marais and we passed by the fantastic neon sign for the detective that's recommended in the book. I had never noticed that before and was delighted to see DETECTIVE in green neon lights hanging from a beautiful old building. I have had further stories about this detective- quite intriguing!
Orders are being shipped with their regular time schedule at the shop. We've added a few new pieces online... and we're showing a few pieces above that are at the shop, but not online. There are the wonderful floral overalls from Pip Squeak Chapeau. We show them in the first photo with a favorite sleeveless shirt from Apunto b. This shirt is also shown in the second picture. It is very lightweight and has gathering all along the front and back neckline. It is so easy and comfortable to wear. This shirt is not online, but available at the shop :) Also shown is a fantastic pleated wrap skirt by Apunto b. If you've ever had a skirt by Apunto b., you know how beautifully they fit. This one is no exception- it is very flattering on. We show it with a navy blue cotton cashmere cardigan and brown patent repettos with a high rise. In the last two photos, we show a fantastic shirt from Pip Squeak Chapeau. This has gathering along the neck and silver piping lining the collar and going down one side of the front. This has a nice oversized fit and is made of a beautiful Japanese cotton.
