Gap x Garance Doré

Exclusively in Paris, from October 3rd.

For its 40th birthday, Gap opened an ephemeral shop in London and invited the fabulous blogger Garance Doré to showcase her photographs and illustrations. A limited line of tee—shirts was naturally born of this encounter and colette is happy to offer them exclusively in Paris, from October 3rd! The best news? If you are unable to book a flight to Paris for tomorrow morning, you can purchase one from Colette online! (Or two, if you're feeling really fashiony!) The clock is ticking*


Thank you also to both Farfallina and Mocca & Me, who nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Awards. I am so honoured! As part of receiving this award, I was asked to name seven things about myself that people may not know and to pass on the award to seven other bloggers...

7 Things About Me

01 I decorated a showhome when I was 15 years old, and was on such a
tight budget, I painted a lovely crown headboard in what was to be a little girl's room
02 When I was 12, I won an art contest—the prize was a free horse riding lesson
—my first and only time on a horse.
03 I cannot swallow pills.
04 I took Royal Conservatory piano lessons for 8 years.
05 My chin actually vibrates when I attempt to tell a little fib!
06 When I was 2, I made a conscious decision that when I grew up I wanted to
be a Princess. For a number of years, I would only wear shoes that tapped
when I walked, pretty tights and socks, and twirly dresses. If they did not twirl,
I refused them.
07 I love children, and started babysitting and nannying at 11 years old.

I would love to pass this award on to the following bloggers,
whose blogs I enjoy very much:

* Paula Grace Designs
* Art de Vivre
* Red Ticking
* Sanity Fair
* An Interior World
* How to Wear It
