A Poirot Pin

“Words, mademoiselle, are only the outer clothing of ideas.”

Agatha Christie, The ABC Murders
As a writer Agatha Christie was certainly aware of the importance of clothing in conveying her characters personalities.  She often described clothing in great detail and Hercule Poirot, arguably her most famous creation, certainly had a distinctive style.  As a vintage lover I'm a big fan of both the Poirot stories and the television show, the show in particular is a major source of 1930s style inspiration for me.  That is why I was so excited to discover the adorable Dandy Pin sold by Le Petit Pot on EtsyThis little gentleman really reminds me of my favorite detective and I think he nicely accents my outfits.  I felt a bit like Ms. Lemon when I pinned him to a polka dot Anthroplogie dress I got on sale last year.  I think it has a bit of a 1930s feel to it.

 I wore my pin for a nice Sunday walk in the park with two of my sweet pups and my lovely husband.  I've been trying to make an effort to dress up a bit for one day of the weekend.  It just gives the whole day a nicer feel.

Le Petit Pot's customer service was also excellent.  My first pin arrived cracked, through no fault of the seller, I believe it must have been crushed in the transport from Spain to the US despite the bubble wrapping.  Le Petit Pot sent me a new pin free of charge and it arrived promptly.  The shop has adorable, and affordable, jewelry so be sure to check it out.


  1. We love the brilliant HP as you well know from Dogton. You look smashing and the pin is stylish and fun. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. The dress is beautiful. I love polka dots and need to get more of them in my wardrobe. The pin is perfection with your outfit.

  3. Love polka dots. Your dress is darling. That's a wonderful photo of you and Norbert. He's even dressed up for the walk in his yellow bandanna.
