Hello my little kittens!
I hope you are doing well this Sunday morning, I give you a very serious horoscope brought to you by Madame Irma, a graphic associate of our wonderful Alexandra B, who came especially today, in the name of love, to create little cats out of modeling clay….I really hope you like them! See you later, my lovelies…To see more of Alexandra’s work, just click here and there!
- Aries, 21 March - 20 April (like Josiane Balasko)
Your birthday is coming soon and you are already quivering, you have “the banana” as we say in French (a smile from ear to ear), your better half has promised you a big surprise, you are already dreaming of the Red Square in Moscow or at least of the red soles of a pair of Louboutins. Careful what you wish for, especially if he’s a Capricorn, his planets are not aligned under the Rouble sign.
- Taurus, 21 April - 21 May (like David Charvet)
Work: You are a huge success right now, kind of like a David Charvet on Baywatch, do not rest on your laurels and keep giving it your all to ensure you will not struggle in your career. In matters of the heart, Valentine’s Day was full of surprises and you are still surfing on a wave of happiness. The singles feel like they’ve been holding their breath for a few months now, take advantage of being single, it will soon come to an end.
- Gemini, 22 May - 21 June (like Stomy Bugsy)
That Daddy of yours is not a gangster, but your biggest ally, remember to spoil him! In matters of health, you’ve just gotten over a raging flu and you are emerging from your shell like a beautiful pearl, springtime is almost here, activate the plan of attack! Money-wise: Pluto is going to disrupt your balance for a few days, lay off the Starbucks.
- Cancer, 22 June - 22 July (like Bill Cosby)
Madonna is allied with Venus, guaranteeing you thunderous sex-appeal, but beware of being struck by lightning! Work-wise, you’ve grown weary, the jokes at breakfast-time don’t make you laugh anymore, you’ve settled into a routine and you don’t love this job as much as you once did…It’s time to evaluate, and look around a bit, you will surely find other answers at the office of the Director of Human Resources, the planets are aligned under the P.R.O.M.O.T.I.O.N. sign.
- Leo, 23 July - 23 August (like Calogero)
You’re all atwitter in anticipation for springtime, you’ve gotten lots of rest during the winter, and now all you’re waiting for is the sun for you to put your plans into action. And if it turns out you don’t have the patience to wait for Spring, which should probably get here by August, try the Tropics. And don’t forget to use sunscreen, remember Donatella Versace if you get lazy, and get on top of your 50 SPF instead of turning into a starfish.
- Virgo, 24 August - 22 September (like Alex Lutz)
A new temp is in sight in the open space, you turn on the charm to get what you want. Saturn and its rings are aligned to help you end up with that ring on your finger. Money-wise, you won 16€ last week from an instant lottery scratchcard, you are born again! Health: a good glass of lemon juice in the morning before breakfast!
- Libra, 23 September - 22 October (like Sophie Favier)
Between work and your love life, your heart is torn, look ahead into your future 10 years from now, and maybe that will help to see things more clearly. A little birdy told me that you need to take a step back, and most importantly, lots of sleep, favor tea over white wine and you’ll see that your migraines will not last as long.
- Scorpio, 23 October - 22 November (like Mademoiselle Agnès)
The Scorpios of the first decan will see plenty of unexpected developments during the first two weeks of March. In matters of the heart, you’ve seen "50 shades of Grey" 12 times and it gave you some ideas, be sure of yourself before arriving at the office with marks on your wrists that you will have a hard time owning up to. Health: stop trying to convince yourself that fries are vegetables.
- Sagittarius, 23 November - 21 December (like Philippe Etchebest)
You’ve already broken up with your better half for the 12th time this month, dry your tears, you are awesome, take a step back, nobody should make you cry, unless they are tears of joy… Remember that all good things come to those who wait, deal with your discomfort patiently and stop rubbing your eyes if you don’t want to end up like Gilbert Montagné. Health: a good old raclette to comfort you.
- Capricorn, 22 December - 20 January (like Popeye)
As was aforementioned, you are broke, your wallet is empty, your bank account is dry, in short, you get it, in terms of money, you are not loving your life right now. Take advantage of that to appreciate simple and inexpensive pleasures: watch Le Petit Journal snuggled under your comforter, go pay a visit to your Mom so she’ll make you a good roast…Don’t worry, March is looking up to be more fruitful.
- Aquarius, 21 January - 19 February (like Mia Frye)
The weather is nice, the sky is blue…You feel like you are living in a Xavier Dolan film and it’s rather pleasant. Remind yourself that there will definitely be a plot twist to break this harmony and bite you in the butt, if only for the benefit of the audience. Keep your guard up and take off that blue wig, it does not work at all with your complexion.
- Pisces, 20 February - 20 March (like Jeanne Mas)
It’s not all black and white, or red and black as Jeanne would say...Don’t forget to make compromises, at work as well as at home, it’s not a big deal if the lipstick you are wearing today doesn’t match your shoes (by the way, if you are guilty of this bad habit, you should know that Christina does not validate this fashion faux pas at all). Total eclipse of Mercury: your birthday is shaping up to be caliente.

Bonjour my little kittens!
I hope you are doing well! And that you got the chance to enjoy the little ray of sun that made a surprise appearance today! I’m nothing but love, not really love but happy, you know, life is sweet, crazy but sweet. I’m so pleased to see my projects coming to life, and I feel like you have always been such a loyal audience, and that my work has had an impact on you, it’s such a gratifying feeling, on a daily basis. One reader aptly said “A clothing line created by you but brought to life by us,” I so want to tell you what comes after, but I have to try to maintain some semblance of surprise…Even though I am sure that some of you have probably already guessed what’s coming next…
So today I’m wearing the blouse called Bianca from the previous article with a heart-shaped pocket with “My moon” embroidered on it, which I keep close to my heart. Alert, Cheeeeessy! You got me, I’m the kind of girl you want to choke, happy and in love, what a nightmare… I wish you all the happiness in the world, that you work hard to turn your projects into a reality, that you take care of yourself, and not forget about your own needs, and may you wholeheartedly believe in your dreams, and stick it out until you achieve your goals! There you have it, I warned you, I’m full of nothing but love.
Ok so, I am actually happy despite my pouting face with a berry crown on my head…nah, come on! And quite honestly, when we did this photo shoot at the Palais Royal (Royal Palace) with Pauline Darley, there were sadistic little drops of rain, and yes rain can be sadistic sometimes, when it’s somewhere between a mist and Breton rain (no offense intended towards Brittany), which made me not the happiest camper. In reality I was so happy to see Pauline, content with herself after having made me a crown out of flowers in a matter of minutes, I felt like dancing for joy. A crown for the “Queen” of the forest, like I had seen on Pinterest...
Today I’m wearing the blouse Bianca, a Liu Jo coat, boyfriend jeans by Samsoe Samsoe, a pair of Sarenza boots and an all-purpose handbag by Liu Jo and a crown of flowers from DIY Minute! Sending you many kisses, and I’ll see you real soon!

Hello my little cats!
I’m so happy to find you back here, thank you so much for your feedback regarding the internship offering I posted on Saturday, do not hesitate to keep sending us your applications, we will get back to you quickly! We are back today with our second installment of Wear Lemonade, a blouse called BIANCA! We were really surprised by your overwhelming enthusiasm for the dress LUISA (which is back in stock by the way!), it’s so awesome, and we’ve seen more and more of your own creations pouring in on social media, they all look great! We’ve gone through all of your comments with a fine-toothed comb, taken your suggestions from the previous article into consideration, and have made some changes accordingly.
From now on, in each template package you will find:
Dans les patrons se trouvent à chaque fois désormais:
- - A cutting layout to place the various elements of the garment in the correct orientation of the fabric.
- - We now have up to a size 46.
- - We have made a size chart with all the measurements we use to graduate the garments, click here!
- - And most importantly, we have included the seam allowances in the 1cm template, which, I have to hand it to you, makes life easier!
- - And as a bonus, we have changed the packaging a bit to give it our own personal “flair”…
A hundred times thank you for your positive and encouraging feedback on this project! Today we give you a blouse called Bianca, a top with a dress-shirt collar which can be made from any type of cotton. In the template, we included a variation: you can make the blouse with a heart-shaped pocket or a classic one. We really had a great time making a bunch of them, we truly hope you will like it. I had envisioned it with a little collar of “perfect” proportions so as to wear it under a sweatshirt or a sweater, and only the collar would show…So yes, there is a collar (I can hear you freaking out from here) but if you let yourself be guided by the instructions, you’ll see that everything will turn out fine, it’s a dress-shirt collar but without the difficulty of a button placket, since the opening is in the back…This template has been tested and approved by even the novices in our entourage. You’ll see that making a collar is a piece of cake, honestly! Like last time, you can choose to download the template for free, all you have to do is click HERE.
For those of you girls who might be curious, the satin-stitch fabrics, white plaid, speckled and white honeycomb print, I found them at Sacrés Coupons, 4 rue d'Orsel in the 18th district of Paris, and the fabric with the crazy stripes, I found on the MILH website, and hurry up by the way if you want some, there are sales with up to 60% off on everything with the promotional code AMOURPUISSANT....
I’m psyched to get your feedback, and don’t hesitate to write to us for even the slightest request for advice, and share your creations on Facebook, Twitter and especially on Instagram with the hashtag #DIYwearlemonade. On that note, I send you big kisses, see you soon!

Adios little kittens!
And so begin my last few days as a lemonade girl…sniff sniff. Six months, how time has flown! I remember my first week here as if it were yesterday: I had to cut up sheets of paper for the Tsumori Chisato window display for a whole week! I experienced my very first paper cuts, I felt like I was walking across hot coals, ha ha. And then the projects and the months came one after the other, the horoscope, online shop, Advent, the cake calendar, the window display for St Louis, Wear Lemonade…to name but a few. As you can imagine, I am so happy to have contributed to the elaboration of these projects.
It wasn’t always easy sailing, that’s for sure! I can’t even tell you how stressed I was when Lisa told me she wanted me to create an original horoscope, fortunately I know her well enough to appeal to her feline-feelings (yeah, yeah I know my joke is cheesy).
I must admit that before starting at the Lemonade studio, I hadn’t anticipated all the diverse and enriching experiences I would have. I do realize how lucky I am to have dabbled in a bit of everything, and bring together work and passion.
In short, thank you Lisa for making me feel at home, for your trust and your wacky expressions, and thank you Charlotte for your advice, your positive disposition, and your explosive sense ofhumor.
On that note, I leave you with a heart full of kittens and lemons. And who knows, I might just make a comeback when Wear Lemonade will have become the must-wear brand of Parisian fashion !
A thousand kisses,
Last special, daily selection "sweet office" before you get to discover THE Lemonade studio.
