Slogan tops: so much better in French

The French. Better than us at pouts, pastry, fringes and now slogan tees. While I'm not generally a fan of slogan tees in English, write that word down in French and faster than you can say Ooh La La, I am a fan. Ridiculous? Perhaps. But, chic?

It's why we love it....…
