Fashionable Francophile Friday : Vintage Dior Blooming in Paris

{Vintage Dior Blooming in Paris : ink pen, pencil and watercolour fashion illustration © Shell-Sherree}

Say Bonjour to your DIY project for the weekend Shell Sherree-style.  If you have a satin nightgown and a cornucopia of blowsy blooms from the markets, just close your eyes, wave some pixie dust et voilà, this vintage Dior creation can be yours.  The view of the Eiffel Tower might take a little more fabrication than upcycling some wire coat hangers but keep waving that pixie dust and who knows ~ anything is possible here.  The perfect match for champagne silk satin is champagne and there's a gold tray of macarons au caramel fleur de sel with rose-petal ganache floating around somewhere.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Francophile Friday to you !

  1. You've created pretty much my perfect fantasy, chère Shell: vintage couture, a perfect view of the ET, champagne and caramel au fleur de sel macarons. The only thing missing . . . well, as you say, anything is possible here so I'll just conjure him up myself!

  4. I do love the vintage dresses. If a designer had a flow of roses coming down a dress today, bet they'd hear hell about it.

    1. Possibly so, PA ! I'm hoping someone will test the theory one of these days ...
