Welcome, bienvenue, to the last in the series wherein Edith and I pull our own clothes out of our closets, mix them up and show you how staggeringly stunning and clever we are.
Oh yes, and modest as well.
The blossoms have burst into full bloom on my forsythia, which officially signal printemps chez moi. And, as promised, next week we will debut our spring/summer selections demonstrating once again how incredibly inventive we are no matter what the season or temperature.
In today's post, our selections can be worn for the next month or so unless the temperatures soar, which seems unlikely.
Off subject, quelle surprise(!): I would like to recommend that if you have, or can find a friend or acquaintance who can draw and you want to lose a few pounds, do the following: Never ever have your photograph taken again for the rest of your life. Instead, ask your new friend to draw you according to your specifications. In that way you can forget about diets and calorie counting and miraculously become the size you've always dreamed about, wearing whatever you desire --even haute couture. It won't work on official documents of course, like your passport for example, but those are only head shots, not hip shots.
Moving along. . . Edith is wearing her dark indigo jeans and in both drawings Agnes b cotton t-shirts. With the pants she pulled out a short navy light wool YSL jacket and her Tod's driving moccasins. With her black, "I've had forever and don't remember where it came from" wool skirt she added a huge black silk flower on her shoulder and a wide red suede belt. "The flower takes me from the office to dinner," she explained.
Ed. Note: Edith does not work in an office, she works in front of an easel, but you get her point.
I'm wearing my usual black Chanel skirt and Donna Karan pants. On top I've teamed a large, pale, pale gray linen shirt with a black and gray pin-striped linen waistcoat I had made in Dubai.
With the trousers I'm wearing a red silk jacket I've had so long I truly don't know where it came from over a silk moire waistcoat I bought in a men's store someplace or other. Once again, I added my coral necklace and Minelli Louis heels that look sort of like Chanel -- sort of.
All drawings by Edith of course.
