Pretty Happy Duster

It was summer in Tucson, AZ and I was bicycling out without sun protection (shame on me). I stopped for cold drink and next to it, there it was. The perfect little vintage store was next to the restaurant and this little duster was misplaced right near the door by the Mexican day-dresses and the Guatemalan cloth-belts. I am considering having it lined or sewing buttons to go with my tench coat's removable liner. I will keep you posted!

Blue Sky Gaviotas en el Aire

This is another take on chambray. It seems to pair with this skirt that Mom and moi thrifted a few weeks ago. It has the prettiest seabird print. It is reminiscent of the country club in the caribbean where we used to throw all of our parties. As kids we were too bored to stay inside, so we'd go out to the beach area and count the birds, scare them, and play with the little crabs digging holes in the sand.
The print is really the interest in the skirt. Mon premier reaction was to cut it and make two skirts out of it. It is, perhaps, too voluminous for the length. A temporary fix was the side knot to reign it in. But there is something in moi wanting to keep the alteration temporary. That something wants to keep it long. Perhaps it's mon lunacy?

It is not you, c'est moi!

So, A few weeks ago, I dropped mt dearly beloved laptop. If you ask me, it is a sturdy one, since it did not give in until the second time it fell from my one-armed attempt at opening my house's entrance double door down the solid concrete entrance steps. I managed to temporarily fix the screen, but, of course, it was a matter of time. My apologies for the absence.
Also, seem somewhat fixated on some of the coolest, understated, chic, "French way of dressing" pictures/items/ideas/books and have been reading/browsing for the last 4.6 hours.
Oui, Je suis amoureux de toi, élégance intemporelle!! Dire que tu m'aimes aussi.

Hugs and Kisses,
