Coco avant Chanel.......
Yesterday afternoon after finishing my painting, I decided to treat myself to the luxury of watching a girly DVD before Mr FF returned from work. p.s. I am back to painting this afternoon....no movie for me today!
I decided that by watching the movie in French, it would also double as French homework.
What a fabulous movie, I loved everything about it - the fabulous and oh so french houses, gorgeous costumes and the fabulous and chic Coco. I love the word "coco", it somehow rolls of the top of your tongue.
I love everything in this photo, books, couch, fabulous suit and gorgeous shoes.....tres chic!
I do not want to give too much away in case any of you have not already seen this fabulous movie, but it is safe to say that I shed a tear and her life reminded me somewhat of Edith Piaf's who also suffered a great loss and never fully recovered.
They say that it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved, but such loss must make one very, very sad or as they say in French "très triste".
Did you like the movie as much as I did?
