Charming Blogs: News from Fashion Illustrations

In the past I've made attempts to speak French. The last time I went to Paris I had such poor pronunciation that invariably the lovely shop owners and waiters took pity on me and switched almost immediately to English. Thanks to the internet and globalization I can now indulge many of my favorite French passions on this side of the Atlantic, but it is never quite the same. Macaroons are never as perfect as they are at Laduree, crepes loose some charm when not purchase on the street and eaten while walking along the Seine.

But, there are a handful of things that still maintain all of their charm, including my favorite French fashion blogs. News from Fashion Illustration allows me to get my French fashion fix through one of my favorite mediums, fashion illustration. I can often get a rough idea of what is going on in the text, but mostly I just admire the fabulous cartoons. Check it out, I'm sure you'll love it too!

Ha ha! That's what happened to my sister many years ago. She was like, but I want to speak French, and the people said, "Oh,that's okay!"

I'm learning Italian this year for a trip to Italy in August. I so hope this doesn't happen to me! :)
