zou bisou bisou

April 19, 2012

Everyone has been raving about someone on Mad Men singing the song "Zou Bisou Bisou" and so while on iTunes yesterday I checked out the song and fell in love with Gillian Hills and then I promptly went on a 60s French pop music spree. The music just rocks, you know? and it makes you want to get on your feet and dance, let your hair loose, and dream of looking like Brigitte Bardot. Even the French version of "These Boots are Made for Walking" sounds better because, you know, it's in French.

Brigitte Bardot
The French in the 60s were just so stylin' and they really had a great mix of classic early 60s styles (small waists and the whole 'bombshell' look) and mod fashions not to mention timeless French chic classiness. So break out the records, tie a scarf haphazardly around your neck, and celebrate all that is 60s French pop music!
