There is no denying that when it came to style, France got it right. I would like to tell you more about it, but i've been researching now for 3 hours and it's coming up close to 1am. So i cheated and copied and pasted a very brief description.
Along with Milan and New York, Paris is sometimes called the "fashion capital of the world". The association of France with fashion (French: la mode) dates largely to the reign of Louis XIV  when the luxury goods industries in France came increasingly under royal control and the French royal court became, arguably, the arbiter of taste and style in Europe.
The most beautiful movie i have ever seen is with no doubts, Marie Antionette. The palace alone was fascinating to see on screen. My husband has been there. I'm incredibly jealous, but he has promised to take me for our anniversary next year.
Her gowns, shoes, fans, furniture, friends and lifestyle was so glamourous. The colours so rich and full that i almost felt i could reach out and feel the texture of their clothes.
I have tried to capture a french feel in my home, but i have a long way to go. I found a shop on eBay though this evening, and i got incredibly excited over the cheap prices.
The above two imagesa are previews of what they sell. Incredibly stunning.
