Thanks to an old friend, I'm embarking on a new adventure which involves a bit of "Frou Frou"
The dictionary definition of Frou Frou is as follows: froufrou n.
1. a swishing sound, as made by a long silk dress
2. (Clothing & Fashion) an elaborate dress or ornamentation, esp worn by women
from French, of imitative origin
I like to think of Frou Frou as more of an affected elegance. What does that translate to you ask? HA! I would loooove to say I came up with that all on my own but let's face it, I've got WAY to much going on to be that clever! It sounded great though didn't it? Like I had this effortless chic way of putting my whole take on Frou Frou into two perfectly descriptive words. So let's try this again, my true thoughts on Frou Frou? I think it can be any level of abundance determined by each individual. (That was all me- Thank you very much)
I think it is possible for Frou Frou to be understated. Tory Burch is a perfect example of this. Don't believe me? Spend some time reading her Holiday dressing tips or browse around her website. Understated Frou Frou at it's finest!
She has a little bit of "bling" (That word really is horrible isn't it?) Ok I'll start over....
She designs with just the right amount of ruffles, bows, and shiny things (that was better wasn't it?) to illistrate perfectly what I was referring to earlier as Understated Frou Frou and will now be a term I use frequently in my vocab. ;)
I'm sure when most of you think of "Frou Frou" you immediately imagine anything and everything OVER the top. Possibly even Gaudy?
