FRENCH FRIDAY #23 "Déjà vu"

This Weeks French Phrase: Déjà vu
La Tasse de Cafe | French Vocabulary by Mademoiselle Love


So yeah, Fashion Week- again! Which reminds me...

Déjà vu
Pronounced: (day-jha vyu)
Translation: Already Seen

Everyone has heard of this and used the French phrase before, but perhaps you didn't know it was French or that it literally means "already seen". I feel that the term is very à propos during Fashion Week because sometimes it really does feel like you see the same things every year. Amy Lynn and Simone were actually at a fashion show this week, and, one of them knows what i'm talking about... 

Amy Lynn: Omg! I can't believe we're at an actual fashion show! Like, O... M... G!!! We are at the DVF Fashion show!!!

Simone: Omg, Amy Lynn. First of all, I can't believe you're wearing that. It's so last season! And, like, could you try to act as if you're even the slightest bit cool- seriously!

Amy Lynn: Whatever!... O... M... G! That is, like, the coolest outfit ever! I'm, like, totally copying it! and Wait a Minute! Is that Naomi Campbell modeling it!?

Simone: You're, like, definitely not being cool right now. And is this the 90s or something? Naomi Campbell? This is all so déjà vu.

Amy Lynn: What's déjà vu?

Simone: OMG!

I'm glad to see that everything is back to normal between Simone and Amy Lynn. Aren't you? Hmm... I wonder how Miss Jeneesaisquoi is feeling about Fashion Week. I hope she didn't experience too much déjà vu...


Merci Beaucoup,
Mademoiselle Love

Jenée hère: 
New York Fashion week was everything one expects: loads of street style photographers waiting outside the tents, bloggers on the front row rubbing elbows with big time editors, a fall on the run way! (tho, not by a model but instead by a very plastic-y guest)and loads of newish trends. So in a way the whole thing is very déjà vu, yet one might say there is some comfort in knowing what to expect.

Tory Burch's collection was inspired by the 60s era. Somehow this era never fails to inspire and remains relevant. Just this week, after the J.Mendel Show, I watched Lee Daniel's The Butler movie which is set primarily in the 60s.  This decade (JFK included) are still alluring no matter how many times it's portrayed. So bring on the 60s déjà vu. Everyone knows I can't get enough vintage (and even better in newer fabrics).

Then there was the kitty at the Boy Meets Girl show. Boy meets Girl knows how to captivate the fashionable teeny boppers and def throws a good party (I mean fashion show). Meeting the Fancy Feast Kitty was certainly NOT déjà vu. I dare to say this has never been done before. I going with: This was my favorite part of Fashion Week.

The Origin of "La Tasse de Café", French for "the cup of coffee"
is a morning radio show out of Ville Platte, Louisiana on KVPI-FM
My dad listens to it regularly to keep up with his Cajun French as he now doesn't have much opportunity to speak it in Louisiana where the language is disappearing. 
Since I'm from Cajun land in Louisiana, with a serious interest in fashion and Mademoiselle Love, a Louisiana girl too, who is head over heels in love with everything French and everything coffee, it was only fitting we pay tribute to our roots and our new found loves.
Tune in to KVPI every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 8:45AM (NY time) for your Cajun French lesson and come back to the blog every Friday for more French lessons from Mademoiselle Love. We will discuss useful French  words or expressions for the fashionable girl. To make it even more enjoyable, we will do it over a very fashionable cup of coffee.
