Coup du Monde
French Pronounciation:  |koop dyu mɔ̃d|

Definition :  The World Cup


Salut! Have you been following the coupe du monde? I sure have! 


I don't know about you, but I was particularly torn when France played Germany last week. On the one hand, I wanted to root for France since I'm a francophile and all, but on the other hand, I'm married to a German dude (Yes that's right. I'm married, but don't worry! I'll always be mademoiselle to you!) So, don't tell anyone, but, like a good wifey, I've been rooting for Germany, and how excited are you to see them kick booty in the finale on Sunday?! :)

Anyway, I wonder if Amy Lynn and Simone have been following the Coupe du monde...


Simone: OMG, Amy Lynn, I can't wait to watch the finale of the coupe du monde on Sunday. Germany is so gonna beat the crap out of Argentina. Will you watch with me?

Amy Lynn:  Like, what's the coupe du monde? 

Simone: OMG, duh! It's the soccer world cup! 

Amy Lynn:  Eew! Soccer is so totally boring! 

Simone:Whatever! Have you not noticed that soccer players are ultra hot, and they totally like to show off their six packs by wearing skin-tight jerseys. Come on! I'll make jello shots! 

Amy Lynn:Well, ok, since there will be jello shots involved! But I think Argentina's team is way hotter, so I'm rooting for them!

Simone:OMG you're so totally superficial, Amy Lynn.

May the best (and hottest?) team win on Sunday! Who are you rooting for?

Jenée Sais Quoi here: 
Well, in this household soccer is on year round, year after year. According to Ari it's always a "big game".  So when Coup du Monde comes around every 4 years, it's even more reason to make all of our plans revolve around Futball. While I do find soccer exciting to watch and think it's an exemplary show of team work, the hot abs and cool hair styles are a major bonus.  

One game left this Sunday (but don't worry it's on year round if you really need more). 

Would love to see what your World Cup fashion is - Ill show you mind if you show me yours :)

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.
