It’s been a fun, fun time on the Cote d’Azur. I have SO much to tell you about.
But today, I’m spending the day uploading photos for the posts about our trip. I had no idea how many photos Bonaparte and I took.
Anyway, I just wanted to write a post to tell you about a great gift that Bonaparte received from his father! FAMILY PHOTOS! Yes! OLD SCHOOL VINTAGE FAMILY PHOTOS!
It’s so exciting because I love living vicariously through his family. They are just so….so…FRENCH!
I gotta stop talking. Have a look at some of the vintage pics that
I, we, Bonaparte received.
Bonaparte, his sister Isabelle and their mom Evie. La Ponche, St. Tropez. 1947. Check out how chic Bonaparte’s mother is.
L’Estagnol plage 1957. I’ll be posting pics of this same beach–we went there. It hasn’t changed!!!
Another shot of L’Estagnol. I think I have this same exact shot taken last week! OMG. I love this so much!
Who IS that man looking at?? Why it’s Bonaparte. And his sister Isabelle is to the left of him. This was a picture from an editorial in Marie Claire magazine. Bonaparte said it was for a famous designer but he couldn’t remember who the designer was. He said it was either Dior, Carven, or Givenchy! We need to return to dressing like this!
Keep calm and study! Bonaparte was such a serious student. Suntanning whilst studying. I certainly never studied while baking in the sun! This was 1957.
Another shot of the beautiful Evie. Bonaparte’s mother and I have the same sandals. She loved her Rondini Tropeziennes just as much as I do!
This HAS to be one of my favorite pics of all time. Check out Bonaparte’s mother Evie and his stepdad Jean in the background! Even in a barn surrounded by farm life, there is still time for romance!
OK. Wanna know why THIS photo is so special? Well, it’s because this was our first visit to France without visiting Daniele (R.I.P) And look!!! We still got to see her because this photo was included with the pile of pics. It’s Daniele and her husband, Yves Robert on their wedding day!
Hope you enjoyed! I’m going back to uploading pics! Glad to be back at the computer after a hiatus of phone, TV, computers and wee-fee (That’s how the French pronounce Wi-Fi. I know these things! I’m special!)
Stay tuned!!! XOXOXOXOXO!!
