WordPress surprised me today. I was getting all set to write a mid-week post and once I opened up WordPress, I found myself staring at a mid-week photo challenge.
What in the world???
Evidently, WordPress thought it would be fun for bloggers to post a photo(s) of oneself that represents why she blogs–why she is inspired to do so. Game on.
I blog because I love to write. But I haven’t any photos of me writing.
I blog because I love all things vintage. So here I am at one of the happiest days ever, decked out in vintage: vintage dress, vintage jewelry, vintage husband, vintage daughter (remember, according to Etsy 20 years plus equals vintage) and my brand spanking new son-in-law:

I blog because I love all things French:
Me in Paris. ‘Nuff said.
I blog because I love all things chic. Chic comes in many forms and aesthetics in my world. Whether it is in the form of something to wear, something to see, something to do or experience. For example, to me, this is chic:

and so is this:

All of the above pictures involve me being somewhere wonderful but more importantly, being with those I love.
Chic is also about trying to look my best by incorporating something vintage with what I wear and by trying to keep my wardrobe small(ish) and efficient:
And chic is ALWAYS about the vintage handbag:
All the above are just samples of why I started my blog “Vintage French Chic”. These are the people, the things, the experiences that make me tick. And write.
