From the Sweet Nothings Vintage Lingerie Series by Meg London
Look for Book One in September 2012!!
My name is Emma Taylor, and I live in Paris, Tennessee. I grew up here, then moved to New York City where I worked as a fashion stylist for Cherie Magazine. I was in a sometimes happy, sometimes not, relationship with French photographer Guy Richard. He was so terribly oooh la la, if you know what I mean! But then he broke my heart.
When my mother called and asked if I couldn’t please, please come back to Paris to help my aunt Arabella renovate her lingerie store, Sweet Nothings, I figured I had nothing to lose. Besides, I’ve always loved Arabella—she lives in a big Victorian house and has been all over the world—even India and the Far East. I love sitting on her spacious front porch, eating Chess pie and listening to her stories.
We’ve had a blast redoing Sweet Nothings—the pea green shag from her last renovation in the early seventies had to go! Now, everything is pink, white and black with plenty of black and white toile. If only the armoires I ordered would arrive!
I discovered that Arabella had a treasure trove of vintage lingerie—like a diamond pink chiffon Heavenly Fischer negligee from the forties and those bullet bras the sweater girls wore before everyone burned their bra in the late sixties.
And then there’s Brian O’Connell. But I’ll tell you about him later.
Some people say you can’t go home again. What do you think?
