Rapture, Opulence, Fantasy… although these adjectives seem to have been taken out of Marie Antoinette’s fabulous biography, these are actually some of the names of Monique Lhuillier’s gowns from her new Fall 2013 collection!  And the names are only the tip of the iceberg as to how beautiful, elegant, romantic and simply, breathtaking this collection is!

But do you know what is even more fabulous?  This weekend we are holding our very first Monique Lhuillier trunk show of 2013 and we couldn’t be happier! Don’t miss out on this exclusive look at the collection, Jan 11 and Jan 12 at Chic Parisien in Coral Gables. We are certain you will fall in love with this amazing collection.  For details, click here!

Below is a sneak peak of some of our favorites… do you have any favorites?

Bride Mary

Yay for Downton Abbey!  After many, many, many months of Downton Abbey withdrawals… finally, it is back; and just on what we saw last night, it seems like it is going to be better than ever!  The wedding between Mary and Matthew, simply: PERFECT!   And this quote… beyond PERFECT!

Matthew Crawley:  You came. To be honest, I wasn’t completely sure you would.

Lady Mary: I’m glad to hear it. I should hate to be predictable.

Are you watching?  Anything special you want to see this season?
