The funny one in the Polka Dots

 kiddy umbrela that I've had since 5th grade, I'm having such a hard time giving this away to one of my little cousins maybe I'll just keep it and use it as a parasol (becaus you know it's 1930... naht)

 gold bangle marc jacobs,  fruity bracelets SAT , ring from a Cape Cod shop called Red Fish Blue Fish , marc by marc jacobs red hearts metallic handbag .
Vintage Weiss strawberry pin

this polka dot dress was an old thrifted buy of my mothers she didn't want it anymore 
I kept it and added a
vintage belt , mary jane peep toe pumps and a metallic Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag
my Weiss Strawberry pin and my fruity bracelets
I was really inspired by those chinese girls in 1930's Shanghai and Shala Monroque.

Sayonara Girlfriend!
have a good weekend!

Stripes of Fancy

ah it is but a chilly Sunday night and striped bateau tops seem to be on my mind yet again. or stripped tops in general of course these last few seasons nothing is trendier , they go with everything from pencil skirts to skinny jeans , jeans with flare legs, platforms, peep toe pumps, Havainas flip flops, repetto flats, minis, red lipstick, nude lipstick, cat eye makeup, no makeup, no bra, with a bra, capris, strappy sandals, statement necklaces, voluminous skirts, big earrings , studs, boots, heels, green eyeliner ...YOU NAME IT!
Without a doubt the combinations are endless. But beside the point it reminds me of that effortless Parisienne look , the first time I saw a stylish woman in a stripped bateau top  it was a beautiful picture of the queen of chic (or one of them at least) Gabrielle Chanel:
ah style is innate. no?
Hence, the real reason for my striped obsession is my first love with french fashion ( then again if you love fashion how could you ignore the french?) and well the name of mon blog is je mapelle Sabine that's pretty self explanatory

great week to every one my cherries (sp?)[french for darlings]

Vogue 2006 Giovanna Battaglia

2006 was such a great year in fashion before the recession, there was  Marie Antoinette overload, the year I was finally allowed to read Vogue (details which I will fill in after).
Ah the joys ....
And Giovanna Battaglia strutting in  one of the most fabulous Dolce and Gabbana collections ever (inspired by Empress Josephine Beauharnais - the empire strikes back!) Fantastique!
This article is one from  a series of articles written about finding the best silhouette  for your body type / personal style , I'll see if I can find the one written for Charlotte Gainsbourg  , cannot get enough of her!
