Bill goes to Paris.






Our beloved Bill Cunningham, the on-the-street photographer (who is, I am told, the only photographer at the Times who still uses film rather than digital) has a great audio slide show of fashion from outside the Paris shows. You can see it HERE.

I was hoping that was everyday wear. I have been thinking about busting out a big black mink collar for my everyday wear.

I think you should. I am also waiting for an opportunity to rock the fur stole everyday. Maybe just at the office, since they keep the air con on like 65 degrees.

The woman's shoes in the top photo. . . . I die.

Sometimes photos like that make me want to dress up more for work and going about town, and then I realize I work with a bunch of dudes in a concrete floor warehouse and if I wore cute shoes like that, my feet may just implode.

How do women wear heels all day and walk around and use public transportation without serious foot issues?

The pic is pure perfection. Bag, shoes, watch, dress, hair.

I'm going to put that pic on my refrigerator as part of my diet/exercise motivation wall of fame.

That woman on top is perfection. If I could pull it together half as good I'd be a happy woman. I'd probably trip on my way out the door.

@ jax: I do have serious foot issues! I am constantly in pain! And because I refuse to be The Woman in the Suit and Tennis Shoes I hobble home from the bus stop in my heels (or sometimes, if it's dark, I sneak on a pair of flats.)

Great post!

@jj: I understand you about the woman in the suit and trainers. I can't stand that. Especially now that one can easily find sneakers designed to be a casual shoe alternative.

I have to wear flats to work. I walk at least 3 miles a day, more if I get up and go to lunch so comfortable shoes are a must. And at work it's all terrazzo and carpet tiles laid over concrete. High heels would be a recipe for foot revolution.

Maybe if I were thinner it wouldn't be a problem. Maybe that will be my catalyst for exercise so I can skip around all day in heels.

I have to dig the one out of my photo box that he took of me when I was stylish and hip.
