Guerlain et Poiray...Divine Favorite Things

Today I visited a Guerlain boutique, where they offered to personalize perfume bottles and lipstick tubes by engraving a prenom (first name).  This tiny but utterly perfect detail is so French, so can a girl resist?  Guerlain's newest fragrance, La Petite Robe Noir, has been on my mind lately...and to have my name engraved on the bottle? pause here.  La Petite Robe Noir (Little Black Dress) is only available in France for the moment, so if you are here ask for a sample at's wonderful and perfect for Spring/Summer.  La Rouge Automatic lipstick is a great top, just push up the lever and voila, discrete lip color application.  Lots of shades to select from in sheer or more full-on coverage.  
Had to share my oh-so-lovely engraved purchases!  
Oh and don't forget Guerlain candles.  THE BEST.


I wear a Poiray watch every day...and change the straps according to my mood or turnout.  I've worn these watches for about five years now and love adding double tour (double around) straps to my collection every season.  Poiray offers leather, stainless, gold, and semi-precious straps.  Scarlett also has a great selection of hand-made custom leather straps of the finest quality for any watch in your collection.
Bon long weekend!  Love, Myra

Love love love the bottle and the little black dress!

This flacon will be on my dresser even after every drop is gone...yay!

My favorite Guerlain candles:  Bois des Indes and Pluie de Petals.

My Poiray watches in 18k gold and stainless.  Most straps purchased at Scarlett in Paris.
I dedicate this posting with love to my perfectly Parisian, utterly chic
and everlasting friend, Chantal.

Pink et Potiron: rue St. Honore, Paris -- May 2012

I'm in the pink these days...just bought Guerlain's Rouge Automatique Lip Colour in Shalimar #166 yesterday with my friend Ken...divine!  And in my pink mood, I love adding a dash of potiron (pumpkin in French).  Here are photos I snapped a week or so ago on rue St. Honore.  Hope you love the pink/orange mood I'm in.  And if you are in Paris, make time to see the Louis Vuitton/Marc Jacobs exhibition at Musee des Arts Decoratifs...a treat for fans and fashionphiles alike.  Love, Myra

Chanel Accessories: 31, rue Cambon, Paris -- May 2012

Spring is finally in the air in Paris...and what better way to celebrate than a frolic with Chanel accessories on rue Cambon.  Coco would be proud.  Hope you enjoy! 

My favorite these pinky-coral leather gloves with an AB lucite cuff
Leather and organza...two matte finishes with a dash of Swarovski

The classic black cuff never misses...

Another cuff in pale peach lucite 

Regardez!  The extra super large flap bag behind the trio...divine

Rock this look under your wedding it
Great new modern take on the classic flap bag:  bolder chain, new clasp, hard border stitching

Noticing a theme...tripled bangles and belts
Skinny tripled belt topped by a frothy mum brooch
