Visiting the PALACE....

You always think that you know everything around home....

but if you look a bit closer there are always new things to discover.

I have wanted to visited something for years...

but have always missed the good timing,

as it's not a place that you can visit all year long...

It's the palace of Grand Duke in Luxembourg.

The palace is still used by the royal familly...

mainly for official duties and work.

(They have another castle where they live in country side)

You can visit the palace in Luxembourg City during 1 month in summer
when the Great Duke is on vacation.

So this time we didn't miss this occasion to visit it!

The palace was nicely decorated and has quite a human size.

Sorry, pictures were not permitted inside...

We learnt a lot about history of this small country from the guide...

Here is one of the major personnality of the Grand Duchy:

Grand Duchess Charlotte, she lead the country during WWII.

She helped her country and fought the Nazis... 
you can find streets with her name all around the country!

Here is what I wore on that hot day...

I created an outfit around this amazing novelty skirt!

It was created for me from a vintage fabric that I found.

Perfect time to go out with my lucite sandals!

They can look unconfortable...but it's not true...

they are really comfy... 
except if you walk on those old cobbled streets!

This hat is really my favorite during summer...

found for 2 euros long time ago at a local flea markets!

It has a chineese flair...

so I think it matched well my asian skirt!

I choose that cute koala brooch for one more red touch!

This one is made of vintage galalith.

Sylvain is here in front of the Cathedral.

What a nice 50's 2 tones shirt!

Luxembourg is a really nice city that you must discover if you cross Europe! 

Have you ever been to Luxembourg ?
Do you often visit things around your place ?

On pense souvent tout connaître autour de chez soi... mais si on cherche un peu, on peu toujours découvrir de nouvelles choses! Je voulais visiter depuis longtemps une certain bâtiment, mais comme il ne se visite pas toute l'année, on a toujours manqué le bon moment... je parle ici du Palais Grand-Ducal de Luxembourg, encore occupé par la famille royale, il ne se visite que durant 1 mois pendant l'été. Cette fois, nous n'avons pas manqué le coche! La visite fût intéressante, le bâtiment est somptueusement décoré, mais reste à taille humaine. Le guide nous a permis de connaître un peu plus l'histoire de ce petit pays. Je vous laisse apprécier nos tenues pour cette chaude journée d'été en photos!

Never enough RED !!!

It's not vacation yet for us....

but soon... really soon!

Here are a few pictures taken in Luxembourg city.

Even if we live in France, it's the closest big city near home.

I have a color that I particulary LOVE!


I'm always hunting for more red for my wardrobe...

I think this color suit me really well.

Even with other colors, I like to highlight my outfits with red touches!

But it's quite a hard color to find on a dress.

So when I found this 50's dress on Etsy a few weeks ago...

it was like finding my unicorn!!!

It is like new, I don't think it was even worn once.

Red, white and black...

A perfect combo!

I dared to wear my red 50's cateyes glasses!

I found this Marie-Christine brooch in Paris last May.

My birthday present is SO cute!

Never bored to carry him around!!!

We named him Tobby!!!

My lovely earrings are from a french brand that you must discover:

I really like those shoes from Miss L Fire.

Most of the time I like what my husband is wearing...

Nice colors harmony...

Incredible 40's ties...

Great details...

but I was not so sure about one of the accessory he chose to wear on that day!

Can you guess what???

These really odd 50's sunglasses!

He think they are really cool... I think they are silly...

They recall him those 3D glasses worn in 50's drive-in movies theater!

You know there was always a guy in 50's teenage movies wearing those kind of glasses... even not at the drive-in theaters!

With 50's glasses, the border between bad taste and good one is thin... even for women cateyes!

What is you favorite color ?
What do you think about my hubby's glasses ?

Même si ce n'est pas encore les vacances, ça ne devrait plus tarder... au moins la météo permet enfin de petites promenades sympa! Ici, une petite escapade à Luxembourg, la plus grande ville proche de la maison. L'occasion d'inaugurer ma nouvelle robe 50's! ROUGE!!! L'une de mes couleurs préférées! Je suis toujours à la recherche de plus de rouge dans ma garde robe... pas facile d'en dégoter, alors quand j'ai trouvé cette robe magnifique sur Etsy, ce fût le coup de coeur!!!
En général, j'aime beaucoup comment mon mari s'habille... jolies couleurs, cravates audacieuses, détails pensés... mais là, je sois dire que j'ai eu un doute sur son choix du jour... ses lunettes de soleil!!! La frontière entre bon goût et mauvais goût en matière de lunettes 50's est mince...
- A bientôt -
