LA TASSE DE CAFE | FASHIONABLE FRENCH VOCABULARY sponsored by KatyBelle Boutique

Petit Top   
French Pronounciation:  | p(ə)ti tɔp |

Definition :  
crop top 

Are you ready for crop tops, mini skirts and sandals? Oh, and ICED COFFEE? I sure am! But the weather is still not really cooperating- in New York at least! Soon enough though we'll all be breaking out our favorite petit top because they are oh so à la mode right now. Yes, in French, the English word top is used. Amy Lynn is on top (haha!) of this one...


Simone: OMG aren't you freezing in that petit top?

Amy Lynn:  No, I'm not! I feel awesome. Really! 
(shivering)

Simone: Well, you look so totally awesome!

Amy Lynn: That's all that matters. Damn, why are you being so nice? You must want something?

Simone: Well, uh, yeah. Can I borrow that awesome petit top next week?

Amy Lynn: OMG I should've known. Yes, you can borrow it!


Of course Simone wanted something. She never throws compliments around like that. Are you on top (haha!) of the petit top like these girls?

Jenée Sais Quoi here: 
Well, you don't have to be nice to anyone if you don't want to because you can just get your own petit top from Katybelle!!! Forget borrowing.

Crop tops were super hot last summer and this year they are in full force along with dresses that have strategic sexy cut-outs. This trend is definitely a throwback to 90's fashion but don't make the mistake of going totally Brittany. To wear a crop top in 2014, it must be paired with bottoms that fit at the natural waist - no belly buttons and definitely no belly button rings!!!

This is how to do the Petit Top:

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 Fashionable French lessons.
