Hello, Madcap, Maverick Lou is back! Since I promised that last week’s blog was to be continued, I submit to you, gentle reader, a quick wrap-up of the New Year’s Eve shopping frenzy and subsequent dinner party, chez Patricia and Pascal, my dear friends, who have a beautiful loft near the Bastille in Paris.
|La Bastille by Night|
The dress ? Perfect.
Stockings ? (Prowling feline sound) Yes.
The shoes ? Flawless, while seated. After a couple of hours of dancing ? Ow-wow-ouch ! Hep! TAXI!
The hair, complexion and matte-red lips ? Impeccable.
The false-eyelashes ? Let’s just say, I got them on, which was a triumph in itself. Unfortunately, I believe that the overall effect was perhaps a little more goth than glam. I was going for a Greta/Marlene combo, but, judging from the expression on my husband’s face, ended up more closely resembling Morticia Addams. But hey, Morticia's got style! Sort of?
Food ? Delicious !
Wine ? Divine !
Music ? In addition to being a fabulous cook, my friend Patricia Louisor, the quintissential Renaissance woman, is also a professional deejay, so the music was, as usual, excellent !
By the way, if you are looking for an extra special present for any occasion, be it for a birthday, a Valentine, a wedding, or even as a corporate gift, I urge you to take a look at Patricia’s latest endeavor, Le Chant du Coq, featuring a unique selection antique crystal, china and silverware, lovingly assembled with hand-dyed linens designed by Patricia Louisor and Catherine Delas. Made in France.
