About Me

about-me-resized

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog Froufrou Le Bleu, where you will find Vintage Inspiration for the modern bride! My name is Kirstin and I am simply and truly obsessed with weddings and vintage girlyness! I am so happy to finally have a place to share my ideas, thoughts and design interests surrounding the world of nuptials.

 Why Froufrou Le Bleu?

I chose the name froufrou le bleu because I have always loved the word froufrou (of course I would because I love anything girly and elaborate) as it embodied the gorgeous French language intermixed with a feeling of pretty, vintage and girly. Things we all strive for as we plan our  vintage inspired wedding! I felt Froufrou le bleu nailed exactly what I want to portray in my blog! Classy, touches of European elegance and a vintage pop of fun! See below for official definition of Froufrou; uh, could it be anymore perfect??

Froufrou [from French, of imitative origin]
 1. a swishing sound, as made by a long silk dress
2. (Clothing & Fashion) elaborate dress or ornamentation, esp worn by women

 Introducing…me

So… a little short version of me, myself and I (smiley face)… I live in Southern California where I live with my amazing husband and two beautiful girls…oh..and let us not forget Maggie the sweet golden retriever!  I love hanging out as a family, doing yoga, working out, pouring through magazines & finding inspiration from the media. l also do lots of crafts & DIY accessories in my free time (mainly girly and wedding related accessories, but with two girls there is lots of puffy stickers and finger painting too of course!).

I love my life, adore fashion, eat, sleep and breath weddings and am very passionate about my family. I have always had a thing for  vintage and weddings in general, so this is a very big part of me, my life & where I want to be.  I first got my inspiration for the world of weddings planning my own wedding and then secondly…I began designing mantilla wedding veils and accessories which I sold online before having children. I have a background in high-end retails sales, fashion, beauty, events and entertainment. My main focus is my blog and I get incredible satisfaction from it! I lived abroad in the UK with my British husband so there is a big part of me who loves England, Europe and get lots of my inspiration from across the pond!

Thanks for reading about me and hoping to inspire you with my blog! I am fairly new so keep coming back as I will be adding more content all the time!

Best Wishes,

Kirstin @ Froufrou Le Bleu

Questions?

Have a wedding related question or comment? I have been there and would love to try to answer any questions! I would say my specialty would be getting that glamorous vintage flair on a shoestring budget (or a big one, trust me…I have lots of ideas on how & where to spend money ;0)) and have many many ideas regarding décor, venues, styling and beating the pressures of the big day! I just love connecting with brides and really have a deep interest in weddings so please don’t hesitate to contact me with anything! Seriously!
