POSTCARD, 20 May 2022:
Dear friend of La Bagatelle,
I love this time of year. The light, the flowers and the blooming trees everywhere. I love that the living gets easier. That the layers I wear become fewer and that socks are gone for the next many months. It is also a fun and festive time of year. I just hosted my youngest daughter’s Confirmation Party and it was such a special day with a lot of love and laughter – exactly how I dreamed it would be. It took a lot of planning from the location, the flowers, the food, the place cards and the very important task of seating everyone.
And then there was the question of what to wear? I never buy anything that I can wear only once or for a certain kind of arrangements. For the church during the day I wore my favourite soft pink Andrea top, that I have worn so many times already, with a pair of silk velvet Rampling Pants in the new Ice Sky colour. That colour is magic. To go with it I wore a La Bagatelle jacket in vintage Japanese Silk. I felt comfortable and put together. The pants I will wear all summer for special occasions, and it will be good with one of our white shirts too. The jacket I will treasure forever. I wore it last summer for a wedding, and I can see myself wearing it again in the summer when going on a date with my man.
For the party in the evening I wore my Caroline Dress. It is so easy to wear and it feels and looks great. I wore it with a Bisset Vest in the same colour of Ice Sky silk velvet to tie the two looks together. I loved the colours and the textures and shine and it was all so beautiful that I could forget about myself and enjoy everyone else instead.
Lots of love,
