Cashmere jumpers and other musings…

Uniqlo in France

A recent post from Style Bubble made me laugh! First of all her waiver that a **GIANT DOSE OF BORING IS ABOUT TO BE FED TO YOU** and then her soliloquy to her days at Uni wearing Ferragamo “Vara” flats and Uniqlo cashmere jumpers. I was sent off on a trance about how much I adore preppy-ness, especially à la “Love Story” (which is quite possibly my favourite film wardrobe of all time), and then to thoughts on cheap cashmere jumpers from Uniqlo.

I went on the UK website for Uniqlo to look at the prices and £29.99 for a v-neck jumper seemed totally obscene! I immediately tried to buy a whole lot! But at the billing section, I realised they wouldn’t take a foreign credit card. A good thing to tell the truth, as I was a bit dubious about buying cashmere without actually feeling the quality.

Then yesterday, a friend very casually mentioned to me that he was interested to go to La Défense on Friday, as the first Uniqlo shop in France will be opening at the Commercial Centre “Les 4 Temps”!! How bizarre is that? I suppose now I have no excuse, and must certainly make the trek with him to see whether I should officially make a fuss or not!

Il était une fois…

Boutique Rue Princesse, Paris

There’s a new girl in town! A sort of Cinderella on the hunt for her “happy ever after”, according to Rue Princesse owner Laurent Morel-Ruyman, who recently opened their newest boutique for all the princesses at heart, on where else, but the Rue Princesse! This adorable boudoir boutique is the perfect place to find a cute Christmas gift – choose from their line of handbags and accessories, as well as a selection of precious and semi-precious stone jewellery.

Yum! er.. Miam Miam!

The Delaville Café

After a few years of semi-pointless privation, I’ve recently started eating beef and pork again. Partly because I had no real reason not to eat them; it was getting annoying at dinner parties; and mostly, both were starting to look really, really tempting again! I’ve been eating them for over a month now, and I can’t tell you how much fun it’s been to have all these “firsts”! I had my first Croque Monsieur, which was actually a bunch of delicious mini Croque Monsieurs at the Prix de Flore party, my first steak was a hilariously nervous affair at Le Relais de l’Entrecôte, but the meaty experience which has really stood out, is what must be the world’s most super delicious hamburger, found at the Delaville Café! This hamburger is a mouth-watering invitation to hamburger heaven! A “must” I’m happy to say should be discovered tout de suite!! Mmmm..
