Fête
French Pronounciation:  |fet|

Definition : celebration, festival, party


In French, if you are going to party it up, you might say that you're going to faire la fête. Also, most French holidays have the word fête in them, such as la Fête de Pâques (Easter), which is coming up soon, la Fête du Travail, (Labor Day) and la Fete National Française (French National Holiday, or Bastille Day if you insist...). I have a feeling Amy Lynn and Simone know a thing or two about this one...

Amy Lynn:Woah, Simone, why do you look like total crap?


Simone:  Oh, because I was at this crazy fête last night!

 
Amy Lynn:  Like, what's a fête?


Simone: OMG, I can't believe you of all people don't know that word! It's a party! 


Amy Lynn:You're right! I should know that one because if anyone knows how to faire la fête, it's me, not your lame ass. I'm sure I didn't miss out!

Simone:You, like, totally did, but, like, whatever.

Well, it seems nothing has changed with those crazy gals! I hope you have a great weekend and find a reason to faire la fête!

Until Next time, Merci Beaucoup,
Mademoiselle Love

Jenée here: This weeks word could not better describe what I'm going through this week: Fashion Week New Orleans !!! Every evening is full of events from Launch Parties, to Style Lounges, Fashion Shows and Award Galas. There is always a Fête in New Orleans but this week it's doubled. Stay tuned next week for more from FWNO14.

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, - is in love with everything French and everything coffee - it was only fitting we pay tribute to our roots and our new found loves with a weekly Fashion French lesson.

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.
