We have been fortunate, thus far, in enjoying an extremely mild winter! It makes one full of home that the loveliness of spring is just around the corner! There is something about Paris that brings out the blossoms on the dreariest day, so I put together this little number on Yes, I am addicted! It is such fun to see what delights everyone across the globe comes up with, and for fashion nutters like me, it is sheer heaven! 

I love the idea of leather booties with a flowing, light dress. It's still completely feminine, but with a flirtatious nod to a Victorian gentleman.  The straw boater is just meant to be, and a fun little tribute to Parisian entertainer, Maurice Chevalier! 

Once, I was delighted to see straw boaters for sale in Clair's Boutique, of all places! But, you can still find them if you hunt around, although lady's varieties are more difficult to come by. This had been sold at Liberty London, but is no longer available. Le sigh. I shall take a straw boater and simply change the band! Et voila!

Paris in Love

A New Home

Hello, friends!

I am feeling very welcome with the kind helpers at blogspot, and I want you to feel welcome, too!  This is my online home. A place where we can be reunited with a grace and charm of living that has been lost, but not forgotten. And anything not forgotten, can't be entirely lost, now can it? A happy thought, indeed! This brings me to the very essence of my place in the world wide web.  To introduce others to a rather fun and extremely charming way of life. So, please make yourself comfortable, and enjoy the delicious little slice of life to be dished up!

Welcome and many thanks!
