Oh thank you so much Genie!

Just my colour and... you know what, I think it's my size too!

I'll think of you every time I wear it!

All the best

Keith

Genie said...

Keith -- You are a mess! Merci encore!

Birdman said...

... and very expensive, no doubt.

Shell Sherree said...

How peachey!

Virginia said...

I ALWAYS wear pearls with my lingerie, do you Keith??

This is lovely. Wonderful if those are what we call "tap pants" at the bottom, or maybe there's nothing underneath! :)

Genie said...

Mr. Bird -- This was very close to Place Vendôme and was très cher!

Shell -- Peachy-keen and right in your beautiful watercolor palate.

Genie said...

Virginia -- Pearls? Absolument, bien sûr!

Amanda said...

way to go genie, congrats on this great review!!

i hadn't bookmarked your site so i sort of lost you for a few days and missed some posts :-(
but now that i've found you again i'm signing up to follow to keep track...

(and if you follow me at travels with persephone you'll be nombre quarante!!)

Genie said...

Amanda -- I am signed up as nombre quarante! Glad that you re-found me!

Rob said...

Congrats on the review! Rather elegant attire, however, I don't think it's the look for me. ;)

Genie said...

Rob -- Thanks! Regarding the attire? Uh probably not the look you are going for, and not for Keith either I would imagine!

M said...

Bravo ma chere amie!!! Great and well-deserved review! Next trip to Paris I will have to come home with something like this (for D bien sur).

Loree said...

That's the stuff dreams are made of. So very wonderful and French.

Alexa said...

Congrats on the well-deserved recognition, Genie!
I think this little ensemble would be perfect for the beginning of the affair, and I love the extra bow—as though the lingerie and pearls weren't "gift-wrapping" enough!

Genie said...

M -- I think your D would like to see you in that -- ooh la la!

Loree -- One would expect more revealing lingerie in Paris. It is there but just not in the vitrines of this arrondissement!

Alexa -- Yes, that bow plus the garland of pearls just about "wraps it up!"

Genie said...

Dianne -- Unfortunately, I have expensive taste and there is no shortage à Paris!

Paula said...

Oh la la is right. For so long I thought it was Ooo la la but not so. I would love to wear something as lovely this.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Paula, I think that TJ or Vickie Sickie would have something along these lines. For what this one cost in Paris we could buy something for all of our friends -- hah!
