currently coveting :: chanel rouge...







Inspired by bright Chanel red, loving mini doses of this dramatic burst of colour. Whether it's a classic quilted handbag, long dramatic drapes, the details of a dress or elegant french packaging, a little bit of red goes a long, long way... it's almost like a parisian neutral of sorts... right up there with black or navy stripes...

I love red, with everything (lately with camel) - it energizes me.
Red nails for today might be just what's needed...

I'm new to blogs and have just created my own, French Art de Vivre. All your pictures are exquisite. The vivid red of the Chanel bag and Ladurée box, a perfect pick me up for a grey day here in England. Love it!
