Yes Please: Chambray

It reminds me of quilts, USA, and summer cottages.

Add this to your fashion vocabulary, chambray!
1. a lightweight plain weave cotton cloth used as fabric for lace and needlework.
2. a commune of the Eure département in France, located 13 km north east of Évreux on the north bank of the Eure River.

I still do not know if I pronounce this word right but since the days of sitting in front of Fashion Television I fell in love with the fabric. It is always worn loose and always looks good in warmer months. I had a vintage chambray sun dress that fell apart after a year of wear. I miss it a lot. I searched and searched for what would be key pieces.




Life is beautiful, let's share a little.

And I thought Chambray was some kind of wine... You can always learn something new on the internet! xo

Sabine; I am certain it is also a wine. I believe it comes from the region I talk about above.

Clare; I did sign up for the contest. Crossing my fingers.

WendyB; I know! It reminds me of wholesale bedding outlets (i.e Americana).
