|Jane Fonda with nice bangs.|
If the calendar did not say Avril, one would swear it's Juin. And that's today's weather report.
I'm off to Paris. Instead of Botox I'm getting a haircut with major bangs. Immediately thereafter, when Estelle has erased a decade from my visage, I'll hit the streets with my camera and see how the new me plays out with my potential subjects.
|Ellen Barkin with sheep dog bangs. Still, I see possibilities.|
Estelle is brilliant. I want bangs sort of like a cross between Ellen Barkin's and Jane Fonda's, but not the rest of that wispy business going on chez Jane. My hair will be just above the shoulders. And, no, I do not look like Jane, nor are we the same age. I don't look like Ellen either. I simply thought it was bad form to demonstrate my fringe on a 20-something model.
Moving along, with helpful headlines. . .
Another "truc" From the Experts
|Tilda Swinton taking her white shirt out for a turn on the Red Carpet. Far be it for me to criticize a style icon, BUT wouldn't that get-up have worked better with a belt of some sort? Or is it just me?|
It's not as if you haven't heard this from me scores of times, but this time it's coming from the group of experts telling French Elle what tricks we should try to appear fresh and rested. Yesterday it was sparkly bijoux, today we're in everyone's budget bracket. White shirts.
|All from Celine, all with distinct personality, all worth owning. My opinion.|
I know, I know, but it's true. Certainly, even for those of you who don't really like them, there must be some style out in the vast, vast world of white + shirt/blouse that would make you happy.
If not, consider, pale, pale pink. It's not the same thing, but it's kind, as in flattering, to all skin and hair colors. Maybe you can start a new trend.
Just add the rose tourmalines from yesterday and you've definitely got a look going.
No Can Do
|7 For All Mankind jacket. Does that mean someone has already been wearing it for 7 years. . .?|
Jeans jackets. Many of you love them. I am aware of this, and I say -- go girl.
I am not a jeans jacket sort of person. Then I saw the above jeans jacket.
I sort of like it. I wouldn't wear it, but I do sort of like it. It has style.
It also seems someone has taken advantage of its style for a few years. Oh, wait, wait, I know, that's the vintage/distressed look.
Now I get it.
When Chicken Get Teeth
|Flying chocolate fish from Jean-Paul Hevin .|
When we realize something is impossible, it will never happen, like one's husband picking up his socks for example or winning the lottery, we say, "When hell freezes over." The French say, "When chicken get teeth."
I think it's hilarious. Another twist on the theme, "when fish fly."
OK, I'm off. I hope I'll be back with on-the-street pictures for tomorrow. At least I'll be back with my new fringe.
