Maybe it was the snow powered streets and the neige wafting languorously in the air that dictated apparel choices for women in the country. Without exception, every one chose some form of thick, warm sweater garment as an adjunct to her ensemble.
Some protested that their look was too bulky to be photographed thus pushing me over the edge into my peppy patter about how creatively they had pulled off their big sweater choices.
Then, after I had put my camera away for the day, moments after we ordered our Symphony chocolate cake for Christmas dessert (one could roll in it, it's so delicious) I spotted a woman wearing -- are you ready? -- color! Since many of you have been asking for color, I grabbed my material and ran after her. Scared her to death, but she finally agreed once I assured her her image would be safe here.
She is wearing a lime green jacket -- as in the color of the skin of the fruit -- with a striped scarf that repeats the shade in a stripe and glasses that are either in the same family or reflect the green, I wasn't sure, it was already dark outside.
