JE T’AIME JANE
Sitting down to write this post, I have my playlist going with Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Lou Doillon and the man himself, Serge. A few years ago I had the great honour of catching Jane Birkin in a special concert performance of Serge Gainsbourg’s best. She was charming. I’ve never witnessed a concert quite like it. Though there were a lot of people, it felt intimate as she walked through the audience singing, dancing, shaking hands, hugging and laughing her way through the songs and the crowd. The concert was toured around the world to mark the 20th anniversary of his death. The night came to a magical moment when fireworks were set off behind the open air stage, much to Jane’s surprise and delight.
THAT ONE THAT WOULD NOT QUIT
I have had my eye on this Bella Freud (yes Sigmund Freud’s great-granddaughter) Je T’Aime Jane Sweater for soooo long that it falls into that category of things I almost thought I would never have. When you have something on your wish list for so many years and finally pull the trigger, it’s almost hard to grasp that you have. Silly, but after my last big wardrobe clear out, I thought, if I add much back in, they have to be things I have always wanted foremost. And this one was definitely something I hummed and harred about for years, given the luxe price point. Though, I am a huge fan of wool and knew it would instantly fit in with my everyday outfits. This sweater is going to be loved with care.
Almost everything I am wearing in this post is part of the sale (wish I’d had a 25% off code for my Jane sweater!!!!). Find the links below.
