Marie monogram stamp, street style and Thakoon

In honor of Friday, one of the best days of the week, I’m posting some fun and frippery.

A Marie Antoinette Monogram Stamp. Marie’s monogram could compete with any modern day logo in its simplicity and utter coolness. Blogger and FTTB (Friend to this Blog) Marie Arden recently had her own Marie Antoinette Monogram Stamp made and you should take a look. It’s a fun idea for greeting cards and party invites, too, if you’re so inclined. For the post, click here.Marie-inspired fashion blog. Style mavens among us might be interested in a new blog I’ve found: Time Enough for drums. The blog explores French fashion icons, reinterpreting them with modern styles. She has a few blogs on other French icons, like Madeline, dear Amelie and even Charlotte Corday. There’s a healthy Marie Antoinette focus, including the queen’s impact on menswear in France and modern street style. Take a look.

Marie news from Fashion Week. Lastly, you may have heard that last week was Fashion week in New York. Designer Thakoon Panichugal presented a collection that was partly inspired by Marie Antoinette (with bustles and ruffles) and partly by Maasai warriors. your blogmistress admits she does not know what a Maasai warrior is, but thought she’d post the link to the runway show all the same. What do you think?

    I found your blog through Networked Blogs on Facebook and have had such a great evening looking over your postings (thanks for helping to make American Idol endurable – the contestants are tres boring and I surely would have perished of boredom had I not been gazing at your blog while listening to the show).

    I posted an article on my blogs about Fab Marie Antoinette finds. If you get a chance, you might want to visit one of them and read the articles: ‘Tis the Seasons Parts One and Two.

    Look forward to reading more of your pieces in the future! Merci.

      Hi Leah,

      Apologies for not responding earlier. That’s not like me but I was away from my blog for the first time for an entire week and didn’t anticipate that’d be the case. That’s so much for your wonderful comments. And your blog looks great too — I’ll make sure to work it into my rotations.
