Sion of Paris Imperfect and Gail of Perfectly Paris ; Meg of De Quelle Planète Es-Tu? Lisa of Ella Coquine  Mary Kay of Out And About in Paris and Patricia of Patricia Parisienne have all written posts on the event. Thanks ladies! You make me sound waaay too fab! *blushing*

Monsieur in the Pink

If you know Prête-Moi Paris,then you know we love pink!

Parisian gentlemen and pink, definitely go together.

I’m all for the dashing intelligent man with a chiseled jaw, in a rose hue and a good cologne. It’s the juxtaposition of a five-o’clock shadow and a light delicate color such a rose pale that really brings out the contrasting mâle and his softer side. A perfect blend of which, most women love.

Annick Goutal has a new scent for men that I am dying to have Chéri try… Eau de Monsieur. It just sounds dashing and chic! I’m already convinced that it’s the epitome of Parisian male elegance.

Would you like to see YOUR chéri wearing pink? Does he already?!? Send me a picture of your chéri dressing in something pink… I’ll post them here below.

*Bisous de Paris…chéris!*
