All Things French & Fabulous

(Via Inslee Designs)

Yes, I know, I am a day late for Bastille Day. What was a girl to do? I wanted you all to be primed and ready for Amazon's Prime Day today, so I have reversed the occasions. But really, now, do we need a special day to love anything French? 

Shop Local Boutiques from Paris to New York

Vintage Chanel Black & Gold Logo Earrings
In my book, there is only one thing better than Chanel - Vintage Chanel! These earrings are from Vintage Lux and were part of the Chanel Autumn 1995 Collection.
One Kings Lane

Vintage French Champagne Bucket
Pop that bubbly and celebrate everything with this vintage and aluminum champagne accessory from France. Each one is unique, since they are antique.

Christian Louboutin Nicobar Sandals
Louboutin, perhaps the most iconic contemporary French name in fashion. Known for his red soled and high styled shoes, the designer does not disappoint with these.
Barney's New York

Tartine Et Chocolat
Quintessentially traditional French style from newborn accessories to infant clothing.  See the collection at

Vindil Seabreeze Silk Blouse
With a vibe of the French Riviera or St. Barth, this pretty print blouse plays with patterns in a luxe and lovely way. 
Calypso St. Barth

France Luxe French Twist Comb
Ever wonder how French women usually look so polished and put together? It's all about the details. These beautiful accessories are handmade in France, and make a great girlfriend gift.

Laguiole 6-Piece Ivory Steak Knife Set
Designed by Jean Dubost from Thiers, France. This is what I am missing in my tablescape...dressed up steak knives. Very nice for a more formal dinner.

Seda France Pagoda Candles
The inspiration for Seda France's Classic Toile Collection came from the centuries-old French "toile de jouy" design elements.  I think they are one of the best and aromatic candles made. They make a beautiful gift, and now are on sale for 41% - 59% off retail at
One Kings Lane

House Of Guerlain
I became aware of this luxury fragrance and cosmetic line during a stay in the grand dame Ritz Hotel in Paris. If you can believe, our suite was gifted with 2 full size beautiful bottles of Guerlain parfum. One was for me and the other for Mr. Shop This. I wore that fragrance for years until they discontinued it.  I still am a devotee of their cosmetics. Nordstrom's offers some exclusive scents that are really fab!

Marcel Rochas: Designing French Glamour
Sophie Rochas shares an intimate story about her Father, renowned fashion designer, Marcel Rochas. A new book published in May 2015. What a fab gift for a Francophile or fave fashionista friend.

Le Creuset Cookware
Whether you are cooking lapin al a moutarde, or chicken noodle soup, anything tastes better when cooked, then served, in these cast iron pans coated with a porcelain enamel glaze. The cast iron is still made in the same French foundry as it was in 1925. 
Le Creuset

If you like facial powder to set your makeup, you simply must try this brand. It is truly the finest literally, and as in "best" powder I have ever tried. 
Beauty Habit

Christian Lacroix
I just love the extravagant spirit of the House of Lacroix. See the oh so French collection of fabrics, pillows and wallpapers at 
Designer's Guild

Authentic Gourmet Croissants
If you have been to France, surely you had one of these buttery flaky croissants. These promise to be the real thing, having been pre-buttered, frozen and shipped from France. I have not had the pleasure to try them yet, but a friend raves about them!

A Kitchen in France, Signed Copy
Do you fantasize about picnics in the French countryside or bountiful tables of tarts and cassoulets? Mimi Thorisson, editor of the highly acclaimed blog, Manger, has a book for you. If you are going to buy one aspirational cookbook this year, let it be this one.

With Love From Provence
A gourmet voyage to Southern France. "The collection unites three aspects of France: its luxury, as seen in the mahogany wood ‘Provence Jade 6‘ box; the naturally rustic side, represented in the basswood ‘Provence Zenith‘ box; and the simplicity of taking a moment of pleasure, highlighted in our ‘Provence 15-pc’, ‘Orange Duo’ and ‘Provence 30-pc’.
Z Chocolat

Eiffel Tower Opener & Corkscrew Set
Add a Parisian flair to your next affair! This set makes a haute hostess gift, too.
