Valentine's Day Gift Guide: Pour La Francophile

Oh, the Francophile. The fille who dreams of Paris, strolling along the Seine while nibbling on macarons and carrying a baguette under her arm. Adores Chanel and Hermès, and is constantly trying to learn the infinite ways French women seem have to tie a simple scarf (which somehow seems to create a whole new outfit, even if it's the same thing she wore the day before). Repeatedly watches Les Parapluies de Cherbourg and Amélie, playing La Vie en Rose on a loop on Saturday mornings while making breakfast...

Okay, you get the picture. But in case you still have absolutely no idea what to gift your French-loving lover for Valentine's day, here's a few suggestions.

Tempting Tuesdays: Hermès Ain't Just About the Birkins

Tuesdays will feature a lustworthy lingerie set and a suggested retailer. I think we all need a little something beautiful to at least look at to get us through the week. Hope you love them as much as I do!

Hermès Swimwear
I was taking a walk last night—my usual loop around the Upper East Side—and I love walking down Madison Avenue at 11pm because no one's around. I walked past Hermès and loved the rotating oversized bangles in the Madison-facing window, and I was about to keep walking but then I noticed these fancy ladies in the East 62nd Street-facing display. How could I resist? I'm all about swimwear these days.

The maillot isn't listed on the site (guess this is where I say "price upon request" as the glossies do), but that anchor chain-print bikini on the right is (in a different color) and it'll definitely set you back a pretty penny (or like, a shit-ton lot of pennies). So if you are going to splurge on Hermès swimwear, then you know, take care of it and don't go near the elements like chlorine-y pool water or sand or sea water or anything that might let you have fun. Actually, just stand in the window display and that way you won't ruin your schmancy swimsuit.

Classic two-piece bathing suit in anchor chain print, $600. Available online at Hermes.com.
