Yesterday was a bit special...

we welcomed back home our '59 Cadillac!

"She" was away for several months for restoration.

My husband imported it 22 years ago,

and we drove so much with it...

from Britain to Spain!

Even in winter, so "she" needed urgent care!

So we took my Chevy to pick up "her sister"...

The weather was just perfect

to drive a vintage car!

And here is my outfit for that special day:

2 colors that I used to never worn...

All this outfit was built around this gorgeous 50's skirt!

I used to think that yellow was not a color for blondes...

but I changed my mind...

pairing yellow with brown is just a classic!

I'm really surprised to see how many times 

I wore yellow shoes this summer...

Any vintage girl needs yellow shoes in her life!

My skirt had a music theme...

So I thought this copper set was just a perfect match!

I found the bracelet in an Antiques Mall in L.A.

and I found matching booch and earrings on Ebay.

It's fun to bring back a set all together!

I love that so frenchy purse!

And I can see that...

we matched again!

moreover he wore a brown jacket in the morning!

Yellow and brown...

and a touch of orange for him!

It took me many years to convince him

 to restored this car...

it was hard to find a trustfull person to do the job.

but now it's done, he is really happy with the result!

His Cadillac will be soon in the same condition than my Bel-Air.

Do you think that yellow can suit blonde?
Have you ever restored a vintage car?

Hier était un peu spécial... nous avons accueilli à nouveau à la maison notre Cadillac 59! Elle avait quitter notre garage il y a quelques mois pour subir un bon lifting... après des années de bons et loyaux services, elle avait bien besoin d'un petit coup de jeune pour nous suivre encore des années dans nos périples à travers l'Europe! Nous avons donc pris ma Bel-Air pour la chercher... Et une fois de plus, nous étions assortis!!! 2 tenues autour du jaune et du marron... bref, une bien belle journée!

Around my new BRACELET....

We had a quite nice week-end...

but with nothing really planned.

That was not a bad thing as I was a bit tired with all those travels in the past weeks!

So here is what we wore to go to... grocery store!

As I have already mentionned in this blog...

I build my outfit around one accessory or a piece of clothes that I really want to wear.

This time it was this GORGEOUS bracelet!!!

It's a creation from Marie-Christine PAVONE.

It is made of galalith an older plastic than bakelite.

I found it in a small shop in Paris...

Not cheap but I fell in love immediatly!!!

So my outfit had to turn arount purple and green... 

Nice that I could also wear 2 of my new finds from our parisian trip!

This white polka dots scarf and

this SO nice bakelite brooch!

My dress was a simple 50's cotton one.

One more touch of purple with this vintage purse...

and a touch of green with these Miss L Fire shoes!

I love to create the perfect combo for my outfits,

it's like making a puzzle together!

I think my husband has the same feeling.

You will one more time notice that we matched!!!

So I asked Sylvain why he chose these colors.

He told me that he was perhaps influenced by my outfit...

as I prepared mine earlier in the morning!

Do you know a lot of men that will wear purple???

I think that colors like this one or even pink look good on men...

I'm happy to see that my hubby wore them with style!

I hope that I will be able to wear my new bracelet again soon!

How do you buid your outfits ?
Do you like pink and purple on men ?

Rien de bien excitant le week-end dernier, mais cela fait du bien de se reposer de temps en temps! Voici donc nos tenues pour... aller faire les courses!!! Je voulais absolument porté un nouveau bracelet trouvé lors de notre escapade parisienne... jolies couleurs, mais pas faciles à assortir: mauve et vert! Voici donc l'harmonie que j'ai trouvé pour mettre en valeur cette nouvelle acquisition! Vous remarquerez que Sylvain et moi sommes à nouveau assortis... je lui ai donc demandé s'il avait "copié" comme ma tenue était prête dès le matin... il semble qu'il se soit inconsciemment laisser influencer! Un homme portant du mauve avec classe, ça ne court pas les rues!!!
- A bientôt -
