The fabulous Garance Dore took this shot of Cédric Bihr.
On the surface he may appear to be just a regular guy...
dressed casually in his well laundered denim shirt and
being photographed by the famous street style photographer.
...But there's more story to this denim shirt!
.
Well...his wife actually had embroidered this tiny heart on the 
inside of the shirt pocket for him. Transforming this mundane shirt
into something so SPECIAL! Oh my-my-my...how sweet is that!
I'm such a sucker for a romantic story like this (blushed*).
Somehow reminds me of this lovely quote by Mother Teresa;
.  
" We can do no great things, only small things with great love "
.

This makes me want to learn how to sew! I wonder if he throws his shirts away as often as my man does.

That is such a cute idea! (It makes me wish I could sew.) And I love the thought of a secret heart sewn into a shirt that only the guy knows about. It's like carrying around a really good secret all day long ;)
