Meet Chloé and Cancan


My friend Chloé has been my style icon since high school; back then, she was a super cool girl who just went ahead and hung out with super nerdy, not-popular me. She has a tremendous sense of fashion, and fabulous taste in books and music, as well as a talent for illustration.
Today I met her at the roomy and impeccable café Tournon, on the eponymous street; it turns out author Joseph Roth used to live in this very building in the 1930's! Exciting, for a literature addict such as myself.
Chloé was wearing an Antik Batik wrap dress over a black tee and leggings, with crocodile gladiator sandals and crimson toenails. She was reading Ludwig Lewinsohn's The Case of Mr Crump. And who was hiding in her slouchy leather bag but Cancan, her 2.5lb long-hair chihuahua!
Je t'aime, Chloé!

J'ai découvert le blog de Chloé grâce à toi et le visite régulièrement avec grand plaisir. Il faudra que l'on se retrouve au café Tournon un de ces jours, c'est un café parisien comme je les aime.

COCO - Cancan is quite unique... apparently long haired chihuahuas are very rare. Good luck finding your own little Cancan!

MISS GLITZY - oh oui ce serait avec plaisir!

LINDA - yes, I am located in Paris. I loooooooove the idea of inhaling blogs (especially a coconut-lime one like yours, yum...)!!!
