Dans Les Rues de Paris






























































































































































At last, summer has arrived and the street theater has begun. The costumes include everything from shorts and combinations (jumpsuits) to dresses -- short and over the knee -- long skirts, jeans in every imaginable cut, and smart linen trousers. 

Sandals are stepping out on perfectly pedicured feet with lots of red, red toes peeping out. And of course ballerinas continue. The young woman in the shorts is wearing open-weave bottines that she said were borrowed from her mother who wore them 30 years ago. "No, wait, maybe almost 40 years ago."

It is good to see ordinary people in ordinary clothing.

These are always such fun and reassure women that there are many options for looking well-dressed; it's a matter of choice and what suits each body.

Fabulous variety of styles you've captured here, Tish! They all look "right" for the women wearing them.

That's interesting !! red red toes!- the last time I went for a pedicure- I chose a soft apricot colour for my little twinkle toes, but the assistant said NO No !! toes must make a statement so she painted them bright bold RED. now I love it and wouldn't wear any-thing else. Viva la Rouge
