Je t' non plus.

I'm sitting here with a cup of tea and trying to do a Norwegian assignment due to Friday. And that, I can tell you, doesn't go very well. All I can think of is Paris Paris Paris. I'm going in three days. I have been there before, but not like this. Not a whole week. Not just with friends. I hope the trip will be fantastic. In the mean time I will try to continue with all my "have to do"s.

The oh, so very beautiful and feminine Jane Birkin, here with one of her men Serge Gainsbourg. She was such a free spirit. And did what she, herself, wanted.
I wish I had lived in the 60/70s. With long straight hair, wonderful clothes and political involvement.
Je t’aime, je t’aime
Oh oui je t’aime
Moi non plus
Oh mon amour

The lovely, lovely Couture Carrie gave me an, pardon me, two awards. She is just fantastic!

I'll pass it on to everybody. Consider your self awarded if you read this. You are all fabulous ladies and I like you!

Couture Carrie said...

Oh thanks sweetie, for the kind words and the link! You totally deserve these awards. What amazing pics you have posted today!

I would find it hard to concentrate to if I were going to be on a plane to Paris in 72 hours - I am beyond excited for you!!

How can Paris not be on your mind? I wouldn't be able to cope! Have a great time.

Erin Dale said...

I love the seventies too. Hands down, best decade ever. I tend to dress pretty retro-seventies, and even the songs I write are seventies-influenced-- it was the era of the female singer-songwriter! Jane Birkin makes a perfect style role model.

This is a beautiful blog! <3

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

I love pictures of those two. Jane Birkin and her daughters are all great icons for me.

Jane Birkin is a real stunner. I wish I were leggy and possessed some kind of innocent sensuality. Gorgeous photos. Have fun in Paris!!!

BlueRing said...

My dear ever have you been?
Oh you will surely have a fantastic time in Paris… guaranteed! How wonderful indeed it would be to live the life of the 70s even though the whole war idea is not too appealing but then again fashion and glamour life comes first, right?

Seeing as how you shall be visiting lovely Paris in Spring, I am sure the lovely purple trees surrounding the Eiffel Tower will all be blooming and blossoming, and if you would like to see a picture of one of those fascinating and gorgeous trees then al you would have to do is go to my blog and look at my purple tree picture. That was taken whilst I was walking linked to my sister and having such a darling time, I just had to capture the moment.

Two awards?! Well deserved for you are indeed quite fantastic and most everyone likes you, I included in that statement of course.

But why not give the award to certain specific people for then it becomes chaos and some people, like myself, feel terrible and shy to take the award even though it was not for them in reality. Do you not agree?

Hope you are having a magnificent time.


p.s. my word verification code is nacclop which makes me think of huge heels with a big back, and if they were to walk that is the sound they would make "na-cclop na-cclop"..
