Pardon My French

I generally don’t like to regurgitate content that is sure to be covered heavily by fashion media, but I couldn’t resist this video, Pardon My French, by Garance Doré  (discovered on Stylelist). I’ve written about Garance before…I just adore her illustrations, her photos, and especially her videos.

This one is so charming, and speaks to the craziness of being a fashion blogger. During fashion weeks, it’s GO-GO-GO, and then you come home and have to worry about feeding your blog. ARGH! Even when you aren’t attending shows, doing the New York thing and trying to blog about it daily is cray, right? I don’t know how y’all do it.

And how about that killer green clutch she’s carrying at 00:38? Drool. Want. Keep your eyes peeled.

PS: Note to self. That’s what I’m missing…a team. Or just a camera guy. Sigh.

    I swear, she must be the NICEST woman in the fashion industry. She just seems so “every woman” and Caroline Issa is a new favorite of mine! By the way, I think my next must have fashion accessory is a really cool accent…preferably an unidentifiable one like Troi of Star Trek TNG! A great foreign accent makes everything you wear look couture! Hugs! ~Serene
