minois chiffonné

literally, a “crumpled little face”.

a Jane Eyre reference and an old French idiom, it means attractive in an unusual, quirky way, or, having physical ‘imperfections’ that only add to one’s charm or beauty. I love that. I love Jane Eyre, and I love that.

I love the little things–or the unnoticed big things; the odd and funny, the bold and strange; the rebellious, the cute, the so-ugly-it’s-cute, the scarred, the complex. freckles and attitude problems.
