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?
