Happy Weekend

This week has been busy for me. Still have my friends visiting from out of town and I’ve been prepping to style a shoot Anthology Magazine. I get to work with lots of interesting people so I’m excited for it! The picture below is from the good 45 minutes I spent with my friends taking photobooth photos at Bonton. (Did you know I have an entire photo album devoted to photobooth photos?)

Here are my Babble posts this week.

I’m doing a little guide on the things you need to dress your kid like a French school child.

Step One: You need one of these. Really, every kid has one.

Step Two: Usually the French kids have a nicer one than me.

Step Three: You need these (they wear them even when its really cold out.)

    I love this guide on how to dress your kid like a French school child. I will keep it in mind for my future little ones. Love the photo-booth pics. Have a fabulous weekend. xoxo

    Is it strange that I’m just going to use this advice to dress myself in the fall?!

    As a San Francisco resident (we miss you – come back!), this advice is also apt for our rainy, chilly winters. Swap out the wool cloth coat for a chic trench, add wellies and an umbrella, e voila. The perfect way to stay warm, dry, and stylish in our misty city.

    When my friend had her party, she had a photobooth at the event and it was by far the most popular booth. Everyone was trying to crowd in and getting a chance at that thing. Love love love photobooths, especially when you look back at them 2 or 3 years after they were taken. Total throwback.

    So obsessed with all things photobooth……. and albums if them. My apartment could be a museum with all the strips I’ve got!

    I love it! For my wedding, I had a photo booth. And then I had a custom album made and the guest book was everyone’s photo strip with a note from them. It’s honestly one of my most cherished possessions! I think I’d put one in my house, too. Glad I’m not alone. Have fun with your friends!

    I know this is pretty pathetic, but I have never been in a photobooth! Honestly. This needs to be remedied, right?

    Have you seen the giant photo booth at the Pompidou centre? It’s fabulous!
    It’s there until the 19th of September. You should pop over and check it out! I was there the other day, and there was about a half hour wait, and I didn’t have the time, but I’ll definitely go back before the exhibition is finished.

    Ok, question: her HAIR. Is that just her natural curl? It’s amazing! Hair envy to the max.

    Fun shoot! How exciting to DO photoshoots!

    I am a sucker for a photobooth myself :)

    Love the series on the french school child–it is remarkable how well dressed they are. I think they employ the “fewer higher quality things” approach. I was channeling the image when I designed this couture skirt (http://www.aestheticnest.com/2011/02/sewing-couture-skirt-tutorial.html). Also, when we were in Italy this Spring my 5 yr old daughter bought a scarf in an open market in Sienna and looked instantly European! Seeing your Babble post makes me want to rush to Zara online! Thanks! -Anneliese

    oooh, which one of the stores can you find the photobooth in? The booths in the UK print four of the same picture – no fun! Thanks so much

    Its funny because on my recent trip I noticed the heavy trend among the French teenager is Abercrombie and Fitch hoodies and t-shirts.

    The little ones however are waaay more chic. Its almost as if you can feel that parents make an extra effor to put them in “nice closthes” when they are so young…because the next time they are going to se them “put together” (as my parents say) like that are when they are adults.
