When a Girl has a Little Time on her Hands...

...after a long hard work week ... she just might in the mood for a little down time with a pal looking at pretty things in the shops. Which is how I found my way to the Johnny Was Silk Bar and could hardly tear myself away. If you are lucky enough to live near one, get over there and be transfixed by all the gorgeousness at your fingertips! 

If you are always on the lookout for something unique to dress up your basic look (who isn't?) and are ready to spoil yourself a little, you will adore the Johnny Was Silk Bar!  Here are some of the lovelies I considered, pondered over and played with. After all, at the Silk Bar you are free to play around with dozens and dozens of gorgeous 42" square tasseled silk scarves until your heart stops when you find the perfect one for you. All this seated on chic red enameled Tolix barstools with the whole countertop to artfully arrange your beautiful scarves and see just which one captures you. 

Why stop at one? the shop displayed a mannequin with four scarves tied together just so to create a languid and very sexy little silk dress!

Some of the colors and patterns are reminiscent of the beautiful things you find in Provence at Souleiado.  Can you guess which one I chose?












although these are not the exact Tolix chairs we sat on at the Johnny Was Silk Bar,
I had to post this gorgeous setting with vintage Tolix dining chairs... LOVE!!

In the meantime....

les coquelicots en Provence!


Early one morning in May, before the sun came up, Chris and I headed east on the N100 in Provence to capture the poppies (les coquelicots...probably my favorite word in French... right up there with pamplemousse and parapluie!) in all their misty morning glory... we were playing around with lighting and he captured this one of me being a little silly with the huge light! We have so much fun scouting the Chic Provence Design Tour!






Do consider joining us for our fifth Chic Provence Design Tour ...

May 16 - 23, 2015
