Frenchtrotters


I've just spent the last hour of my life lusting after a number of things from the inspiring French label, Frenchtrotters. It's another one of those labels that I knew a little bit about, I think––or maybe I'm confusing them with Trotter's, a popular shoe brand that I always seem to find at thrift stores––but either way, their stuff is amazing, structured and tough, and laced with just the right amount of western flare. If I were to be a fashion designer at this point in my life, this is the stuff I would make, only with a small douse of white Edwardian inspired cotton dresses, too.

I actually discovered this label from a great new site called Nuji that I think everyone should know about! It's a Tumblr of sorts––you see something you like and add it to the site with a bookmarklet––the only difference is that it's reserved primarily for products, linked back directly to the product page. Eventually, after it gets to know you a little better, it customizes the content it shows you according to your interests. It may sound confusing, but it's actually really simple and a great way to collect a wishlist or, like in my case, discover something new. You can see some of my favorite things here.

Oh my! Their things are just so delightful, I'm almost at a loss for words! I adore the little details that look like pockets that they've incorporated into a lot of their designs. And the colours are just so swoon-worthy.
Thanks so much for sharing! x
