Happy Sunday les chatons des bois jolis,
There are days sometimes where I’m bad. I don’t seem to be able to do anything or to be happy with what I’ve done, so I don’t want to force anything. That’s why there was no DIY about jewelry yesterday BUT I’m very close, I can feel it. There is a little something that would make the difference missing... So I keep working on it, it’s coming I’m not worried.
I wanted to say THANK YOU again and again for all the torrent, the flood of love you sent me for the announcement of the publication of «Make my Party!». Thank you it was galvanic, I was like drunk by all this love and I was jumping about and spinning in love as if it was the beginning of a love story...
I’ve heard it will be worst when I have it into my hands... I’ll probably cry or shout, or roll about it, or all of the three at the same time ! Then I’ll be locked in a straitjacket for sure. To be completely honest with you I have to say I am so worried about this very moment -because I have no idea of how I’d react - that I asked Mai to be there, on the D day, to open the parcel with me and immortalize it!
Well! Back to our subject. I have needs! I want colors, I want to quit my tights and, after all this time working inside my flat as if it was a covent, I want to get dressed. You knoow I want to think about it for a long time, to mix things together with clothes everywhere on my bed, me trying on everything in front of my bathroom mirror and thinking «Ah, that look is good, I have not to forget it». Pleasee tell me you do that as well, that would make me feel a little less lonely... I started to do that in High School, the night before going back to school and these fitting sessions became like a ritual in my life every time it was the end of an era... Another memory from my childhood just came by: I used to frenetically cut every mail order catalog in order to create the look I was fantasizing about, a pair of pants there, a blouse here... I had notebooks full of silhouettes from La Redoute with items my mum didn’t want to order, a bit like a late trend book... Yes because I was of course not allowed to cut the ongoing catalog, I had to wait for the new one to come to be able to rush onto the old one, a pair of scissors between my teeth, ready to cut the last pair of Barbie sneakers... Thanks Mum !
So today I’m wearing a trenchcoat from Ellos, I was looking for one with a nice fabric and a short length (and a price that wouldn’t kill my bank clerk) for a long time. A cute loose sweater La Redoute creation, a shirt from Selected, my well-known Mango necklace, a pair of straight jeans from Levi’s that make an awesome ass, Steve Madden stilettos and a cuddle scarf from La Redoute.
