Mid-Week Treat On-the-Street


















































































































It occurred to me you might enjoy a "picture is a thousand words" kind of day, instead of a thousand words. 

We all need a midweek rest from my rants and raves, n'est-ce pas?

Off subject (now that's a shocker, I never digress or wander off the point. . .): I make my morning coffee so strong that some people can't drink it, which is fine with me -- just add water -- but I'm noticing today I must have had a particularly heavy hand. I seem to be floating in some other worldly aura. Not at all unpleasant.  I hope I won't have any unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

Today's pix are a Paris/country mix as you can see. My confidence is ever-so-slowly returning.

The black girl look stunning. I really need to get over my stumpy legs ergo heels during the day lark, flats are so much more chic.

Yes I love the first photo too, glad to hear you are feeling better too xx

Tish,
You never fail to delight. I love the mix of styles that you captured in this week's showing. The lady in the first picture is beautiful. I love the look of her simple shift (I guess that would actually be a sheath) with those flats. Also liked the lady in the last picture--those flats really upgraded her whole look. Has anyone told you lately how much we appreciate you and the efforts you go through to bring us things that make our day? Hope everything is going well in your world.

Yes very much a treat - thanks Tish -love the outfit in the second photo - chic yet laidback and nonchalent too.. I too make very strong coffee - hardly worth having it if you can't taste it is my motto. My father always refers to weak coffee as 'acorn juice'!!

Rebecca said...

I'm a fellow "strong coffee" person! The fashions you show are "right up my alley" (as we say) TOO!

But Tish - has all the color completely disappeared from the streets? We must know!

Style is what the gals in your pix all possess. I'm still chuckling over yesterday's cut-off sleeves on a Burberry trench and the replies from your loyal readers. They made my day as the saying goes.

Strong coffee? You would scrape me off the ceiling. Even strong tea will do it. Hey, whatever works and as you can tell from the above blog responses, we all love you. Glad your funk is leaving. xoxoxo, Carole

As I sit sipping my morning coffee I am delighted to peek at these lovely images...and it's only Wednesday!
Thanks...a nice way to start the day.

I agree, the black girl is absolutely gorgeous!

I just discovered your blog recently, and already it's a must-read. I even enjoy your rants!

You inspire me to be the best "me" I can be, as I hurtle headlong into my mid-50s. :)

What strikes me is the universal aspect of these shots. If I didn't know where you took them, they could be from any locale with similar weather. My sense is that the more urban the setting, the less colour, with of course exceptions.

The blond in the second picture looks like me!

What a warm, delightful smile your first model has! It really is the best accessory -- I don't care how un-Parisian it is. (When I lived in Paris back in the early 80s, I worked a lot on my intimidating-glare-cum-pout as practiced by Parisiennes, but I was only 20 and never quite pulled it off. I think that's why everyone decided I was from Alsace. That and the fact that I looked like a milkmaid.)

As for the coffee, keep drinking it just as strong as you please. My gran has always made it strong enough to animate a pair of dirty socks, and she's past 97 and going strong.

Hey Tish,
Make sure you take your Vit. C.
Sometimes floaty means more then strong coffee.
So, #4 has her loafers on with
stripped socks. Nice!
You capture it all.

Im not of coffee drinker. I wonder how it is to love it so much that one day without it is unbearable?
I need enlightenment in this area.
