WELCOME TO AIR MDM. REGISTER HERE FOR PENDING FLIGHT INFORMATION. C's, GD's and H's, KINDLY STATE YOUR TEAM TO OBTAIN BOARDING PASS. THANK YOU FOR FLYING AIR MDM, WHERE EVERY FLIGHT IS A FLIGHT OF FANCY.
Hello leMdM, I am signing in as Cocotte of course, and sipping my drink here in the lounge...sounds like an intriguing flight coming up on Air MDM. I may have someone bring me another cocktail while I wait and watch for the other passengers...
Thanks for the reply...my neighbor pulled my hair up in a very tight bun a la Black Swan. So problem solved for today. I have no idea how to post iPhone pics, but hopefully you will find someone to advise you...my new concern involves the fragrances of Nina Ricci, as I am thinking of some Parfum purchases. Is there a Ricci-ade? Do you have favorites from this house?
Well, if someone would PM me on how to post photos from i-photo onto this page I would show you the 'do I wore to winter gala last night: All feathers. Chopsticks work wonders. I sometimes have as many as four in: I like the walrus tusk ones because they are exactly the same dun colour of my hair: They even have pretty ones specifically made for your hair in Chinese stores with little danglies: If you choose with deft precision, you end up looking more Dries van Noten, less Mai Ling Nguyen. I think Hednic is going to ban me from Q-A game. It's a pity we can't do a really rakish one where we would be unafraid to bare all: As it stands, I'm over sharing on Q-A, waxing on about my monstrous hangovers, etc.....LOL: And what would you expect from a cocotte?
Hello M. MdM:
I wanted to say thanks for pointing out that Cocotte staple, the Guerlain rouge automatique...a miracle lipstick that can easily be applied *with one hand*, I just received 5 of them that I ordered. This will be much easier for me to apply with my left hand.
Hopefully 160 is the right shade...any others that you recommend?
My DH told me BdM looked very *natural*, but he is now in Asia for a month, so is unable to assist me.
I am now thinking of getting an Hermes enamel hair pick (Clou de Forge, or similar), because I cannot make a ponytail with one hand, so I have my hair currently held up with a Parker pen. I know you are a very resourceful cocotte, and I am now a helpless GD, so please advise.
Well, I'm a little late, but the Hepburn/Givenchy connection got me interested. They had a long history - I had no idea, and I had a minor obsession with Audrey when I was younger. I just watched her films and cursed fate for having separated us by time - as if nothing else would have ...
Here they are: Les Cireurs
However, Lasso (1956) is still missing from the BN directory. I can't believe you smelled it and remember it...*goes to look up Robert Vivier boots*
That's a telling question, and only time will tell.
Interesting choice of image/fragrance: "Lasso" was a very strange scent, the only other created by Henri Giboulet for patou, along with "Caline." It smells exactly like the bee's wax-based hard floor polish that's used when you have "les Cireurs" in to do your floors in France: The smell lingers in your apartment for weeks after they've been around.
No further questions on the the photo.
But I have quite a few on the sunject of JP.
Any chance I could lasso you into starting a Patou thread on the ladies side?
Boots: Roger Vivier
Not a movie still. They were best friends, she was his muse, and they were seen together frequently in public, until death. There is a cafe on Avenue Montaigne, far out on the Seine side, where, in the 80's, I once sat and listened to them cooing to each other for over an hour at tea time. She spoke perfectly unaccented French. He was considered, very much as was Jean Marais, one of the handsomest men of France. For his time, he was astoundingly tall. He was blond, and utterly gorgeous, with piercing cornflower blue eyes.
