Sweet finds and a special request

You may remember my recent post about Atelier des Ours, and how much I adore her clothes, rich in layers and ruffles.... Sandrine contacted me to see if I can help her find props for the launch of her winter 2011 collection in New York!!! How exciting is it that she is bringing her fabulous designs here!!! She is looking to either borrow or rent two or three gorgeous vintage pieces of furniture to enhance her collection, which will be presented at the International Fashion Tradeshow at The Train, in New York, from February 19-21. Since I live on the west coast, I told her I would post a shout-out on my blog... So, if you or someone you know can help Sandrine with this, please let me know and I will forward you her contact, or look her up on her blog!!!! She will be very appreciative!!

 I do love to dress in a romantic look, and was so excited to find a sweet lace-lined jacket at Anthropologie, marked down from $118 to $29.95!!! And, most amazingly, it fit me!! I amusingly told the lady at the counter that you don't have to be skinny to find things that fit you, after all!!!  

Here are some other recent sweet finds...

this dress is to die for and will be added to my collection of vintage dresses adorning my bedroom armoire (and no, this one will definitely not fit me...!!)


  1. Hello, first time reader of your blog. lovely!!! I live in the metro nyc area, have some antique props to loan. contact me at

  2. So, we can finally look forward to get some dreamy outfits from France; -in the USA????
    That will be awesome!

  4. Such lovely clothing - very dreamy and romantic!

  5. I do love her clothing and would hope she considers internet sales, also...and your new jacket is lovely, but the price was totally amazing!

  6. Does that mean that we will be able to buy those dreamy fashions here in the U.S.? Oh I so hope so.
    Please let us know.



  7. Maybe she will decide to come to the West Coast too!!! Love how soft and sweet her clothes are...and love your jacket , I love when you find things like that...

  8. I LOVE Sandrine's clothing line too and was thrilled to discover her via your Blog when you posted about this amazing collection before. Do you know if she will be selling the line in the U.S.? I would LOVE to see some of her styles in person and try them on! Her displays are to die for too... what an amazing talent she is!!! Congrats on being contacted by her and asked to help, what an honor that must have been and speaks volumes about your own reputation.
