It’s always so much fun because each of us approaches the subject from her own special point of view. This time out we will be talking about the one item we cannot live without this fall.
Leave it to me to cheat. But I can’t help it. I reach for two accessories I always wear them together, in my mind they are inseparable. There, I’ve justified my fudging of the rules.
|Why the scarf looks washed out after all the editing and fine tuning I thought I did, I will never know. In real life the colors are sharply defined. (Maybe I didn’t save something I should have. Anything’s possible.)|
One is a huge cotton scarf in all my colors: navy, black, French blue, light blue, mauve — they all sort of melt into one another. This I partner with my French blue ballerinas.
It is not an exaggeration to say I have been wearing them almost every day for two months. Neither accessory is new. I’ve had the scarf two or three years and the shoes more than a year. You know how it is though, whether by serendipity or a true understanding of one’s style, some pieces of clothing or items of adornment are like a siren song. We keep going back to them. We cannot resist.
|The shoes that never leave the house without the scarf. They’re French Sole and unbelievably comfortable.|
While on the subject of fall, I wrote a piece for the extraordinary site Women’s Voices for Change. It’s all about why I love Paris in autumn.
I didn’t realize it would coincide with today’s BIO post. Since I’m in the “business” of making recommendations, please let me suggest that you bookmark the site. It’s for us. It’s intelligent, sophisticated, edifying and fun. When you see who founded the site and their credentials you’ll understand what I mean.
