>> If you've been following my Twitter or Instagram, you might have caught wind that I'm currently being cocooned in fairydust and magic sparks in Disneyland Paris as they extend their 20th anniversary celebrations, with the help of a few fashion designers (hence *ahem* why I'm here… not at all because I am a hand-on-heart Disney fanatic…no, not at all…), big hugs from Mickey, Minnie and co. and perfect cadenced sweeping music that has my face set permanently with a "WOW" expression.

I'll be reporting back on my weekend of Disney magic after I've calmed down enough to sort through the pictures and videos but for now, I had these sweet yet scarily elegant childrenswear illustrations by Jeanne Lanvin dated between 1924 and 1929, depicting her childrenswear line, which was established in 1908 as a means of dressing her darling daughter Marguerite.  Alber Elbaz happens to have dressed Minnie Mouse in sparkly Lanvin for the occasion this weekend so there's some connection to be made here as I indulge in a weekend of both inner and not so latent childish fantasies.

    I believe the title of the last illustration is an allusion to one of the novels of the 19th-c French/Russian children’s writer, la Comtesse de S√©gur.
