  8. Antoine de Saint-Exupery is one of my favourite authors - I had never considered how this quote could apply to fashion, but it's really a perfect description of what I look for in garments and outfits.

  15. Oh, this is so true and reminds me on what I someday read: "If you left the house, look in the mirror and remove at least one piece you wear, and than your outfit will be perfect."

    To be honest I never tried this really but I´m always thinking on this when I tend to wear too much stuff :)

  16. OH MY GOSH. Ever since reading Le Petit Prince in French class, I've loved Antoine de Saint-Exupery! I definitely agree with that quote--it can apply to all aspects of life. And that dress is so cool!

  22. Fabulous image and the quote is so true. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry had such a way with words. I don't think the quote is from Le Petit Prince but you have reminded me to read it again!
