Le Quatorze Juillet

So today we recognize Bastille Day, le quatorze juillet, with a little red white and blue, French style. I’ve gathered just a few of my iconic French favorites, from a great Côtes du Rhône to the Breton classic Amor Lux (can’t even think how many of these I’ve owned over the years). My bathroom cabinet is never without a tube of Clarins Baume Eclair and the Guerlain Meteorites Voyage is not only beautifully packaged but is a truly flattering formulation – actually the only powder I’ve ever really liked. Every girl needs a great red lipstick and the creamy Chanel Rouge Allure is a perfect pick.

le quatorze juilletBonne Maman strawberry preserves is our “house” jam. Straight off the supermarket shelves, it elevates a pb&j as well as a morning English muffin. I only wish these sexy Louboutins fit me – I’ll be jealous if I see any of you sporting them! I love the mix and match patterns in Hermes’ Bleus d’Ailleurs. A set of mugs would be a great gift for any occasion. While I currently carry a smaller wallet, I think these larger zip ones, like this snappy Chloé version are so handy for keeping everything organized in style. Céline makes the chicest totes. This Gusset Cabas in a gorgeous shade of ocean blue might just be going on my wish list for fall. So cheers to le quatorze – I’ll be raising my glass to you today – à votre santé!

  1. Gorgeous array of products Stacey! All of it, right up my alley–especially the bag, although you know I’d have to substitute it for our ocean colored shopper. Hope you’re having a wonderful summer!
