Fashions from France

Today, I took my birthday money and headed to the mall. Have I mentioned how very much I LOVE the clothes in France? Seeing as I am so VERY thankful for my adorable new clothes, I feel the urge to share some pics. Honestly, I do feel a bit awkward posting a bunch of photos of myself in my new clothes. But I'm gonna do it because if I can't go shopping with my mom and best friends, I can at least show them what I bought.

By the way, the entire shopping experience was great fun. The young woman helping me was very kind and she understood all of my French! And the woman trying on clothes in the next dressing room was more than willing to give her input, which was not only helpful, but very encouraging because she kept calling me "mince," which means "thin."

Okay, this is my little fashion show in the hallway of our apartment...

Here I am sporting a flirty red blouse with fabulous tucks and gathers. I love it with blue jeans, but I think it will look great with a denim skirt, too!

This is a fabulous fine-knit sweater with some cute buttons on the shoulders and along the neckline. It is totally simple and classic, but I love having pieces like this in my wardrobe. There is so much room for fun with scarves, and belts, and jewelry...oh, the possibilities!

How I love this ruffled black cardigan! It is perfect weight for spring and summer evenings and the length is awesome!

David found this adorable skirt, and the saleswoman suggested this blouse to go with it. The skirt has two layers: the bottom layer is a crinkly silver fabric, and the outer layer is made up of two fabrics of differing patterns and textures. I wish you could see the detail, it is so pretty!

I had David take some pictures of the back so you could see the beautiful lace on the blouse. C'est joli, non?

Oh yes, I am feeling very spoiled.


  1. Hi My name is Cherie. I am one of your newer followers. I really enjoyed this post quite a bit. The clothing is beautiful, ruffly, romantic and still quite modest. It is a good example that you have set for us. Will you shop for me next? :) Be blessed in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am praying for your children as well. I believe in the power of prayer.

  2. Hey Jenn....cute. I am so glad you got to celebrate your birthday in this way. Will you take me shopping in September?
