Mademoiselle Denamur

Anyone who knows me would swear that I am completely French, despite my Asian heritage. It's quite true, really. I surrender myself completely to anything and everything that invariably relates to France: music, food, fashion, film, interior design... you name it. Three years ago, I fell in love with French music, and it all started with Claire Denamur. This lovely mademoiselle creates the most wonderful music composed with absolutely charming lyrics, and I am wonderfully thrilled to know that her newest album will be released on September 19! I can hardly wait! I leave you now with the two songs that started my love affair with la musique fran├žaise. Tell me, do you fancy them?

Claire Denamur - In the Mood for L'Amour

Ballet, si belle.

I used to dance ballet when I was younger, and I've always had a love of the grace and elegance of the movement in this dance. Do you not love the soft colors of these photographs? Ditte Isager certainly has captured something quite beautiful in this shoot featuring ballet-inspired wedding gowns. Gorgeous!

Do you ever have those mornings when you wake up, and you just know that it's going to be a good day? The sun is peeking through my window, and I smell flowers and summer in the air... Nothing can bring me down today.

I consider this frenzy to be quite fine indeed.

Yes, folks. You see before you the one and only Alison Sudol. For those of you who do not know her, she is the voice and pianist behind the lovely music of A Fine Frenzy. Yes, Alison has been one of my muses for quite some time now; she is stunningly beautiful (redhead or not) and her music makes my heart sing! Not to mention, I adore her fashion oh-so much. I've included a little stop-motion video she made for her song "Lost Things," just so you can fall in love with her, too.
