Re-run.


HERE'S an oldie for you to see until I get a chance to offer you a proper new post.

Makes me want to wear a big sweater and shop for bread and Hermes or whatever it is that chic people in Paris do.

And THIS is good reading for a fall day like today and times like these.

How timely. We land in Paris on the 16th of next month and I need shopping tips. Antiques and vintage decorative. Is the flea at Vanves better than Clignancourt? Any brocantes I should know about?

This post reminds me of a question I have. How old is too old for black leggings under longer or even knee-length skirts/dresses? Is it somethig women should stop doing once we hit 30? 40?

Thanks for this. Lovely for early Fall.

Anon 11:15 am - Never too old I don't think. My general rule is if you did it once (me, in the 80s), don't do it again. But that's a funky/artsy look, not a bubble skirt.

Nice baby post.

Vanves! Yes. It's small but bargains galore. If the big fleas are for window shopping, Vanves is where you will actually pick up small treasures.

Anon - re: leggings, you should wear whatever makes you happy. Truly. But I would caution against skirts longer than your knees. I think leggings look better under a shorter skirt. Too long and you will look matronly. I just saw some chunky knits/sweater-y dresses at Target of all places and thought it would be cool with opaque tights/leggings and a flat boot. That's a look that even a 60 year old could rock with confidence.

That's exactly what I was wondering about. Thank you!

left-overs always taste better.
chic parisians shop at the markets and buy limited quantities, unlike Americans who partake in shopping glutony of target liberace junk. Parisians have "armoires" which are their closets and they have no walk in closets nor garages to store mega costco rolls of toilet paper. pretty picture right.
