La Vie En Rose or life in rose coloured glasses is such a romantic way to live life. Édith Piaf’s song always brings me back to my childhood days when my mother used to play her track on our vinyl record player in the living room. It is one of those songs I can’t help but start dancing to and it never fails to bring a smile on my face. As a little girl, I never understood what the song meant and I have to confess I never looked it up until now either. But having read through the lyrics, I am in love with this song even more. It is a song about a woman’s romance with a man and a declaration of their true love. “It’s him for me, me for him in life” – there is no need for me to say anything more. For anyone interested, there is a link to the translation here.
This beautiful lace embellished dress from Forever Unique immediately reminded me of Édith Piaf’s song. It almost seemed to sing to me the lyrics of La Vie En Rose and it was definitely love at first sight. As a stand out piece, it is perfect for any formal event or for that special night with your one true love. You might have picked up that I am a bit of a romantic and it’s very difficult for me not to get carried away in dreamy thoughts about spending some precious moments with my love. But this dress is just a gem and fits like a glove – as if it was meant to be. And the romantic in me believes that anyone wearing it would also feel the same way.
