Today's post title had me thinking of my Agent Violet illustrated series of posts that I started some time ago and lost in translation.  Or lost in time.  Or lost in space.  All these are possible. 

Anyhoo, it's been a busy couple of weeks or more as I've finally bitten the bullet and done something that's needed doing for a long while but it involves moving my blogging and having a different website as my New Home.  And this old girl you're reading now has been my base for nearly 9 years.  I'm very fond of her.  And she will stay here for posterity, archives and old time's sake.  It feels very odd to be mothballing her but sometimes, we must move on, in life, love and lingerie.

My new blogging turf is over at Shell Sherree Studio where I've gathered all my custom illustration portraits and offerings together with my Paris prints and Fashion & Fluffballs prints under one eRoof.  No more wandering dazed and confused from one breadcrumb in my navigational trail to another.  You'll find it all there.  I hope you'll come say Hello there!  If you've subscribed to eMails of my blog posts, fingers crossed I can get the techie side sorted and you'll continue to receive post emails on Fridays from the new location. 

And so, to today's illustration, we're going all fashion bloggery with our wardrobe and enjoying the comfort of sneakers to go with our eclectic attire.  We've eaten all the macarons and replaced them with flowers for this sweet French bulldog to nest in.  But fear not, a delivery from Ladurée is not far away.  Thank you for all your support here at flagship Chez Shell and I hope to see you over at Chez Shell II.  And on that note ...

Happy Fluffy Fashionable Francophile Friday to you !

Pull up a chair at this Paris cafe and let's plot our progressive pastry grazing path. 

We have a bicyclette with a basket of furbabes to make the journey quicker.   Most taste, less speed.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Francophile Friday to you !

Life is a balancing act, as this bold black kitty cat can attest.

Today's fashion illustration is light on substance and heavy on froth.  But let's be honest, you're not here for in-depth journalism.  Just gaze on some loveliness and you can be on your way. 

Flowers make everything better, including this gorgeous fabric confection.  We can see wherever you fancy from here ... the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, the Aegean or the neighbour's back yard.  Personally, I'd stick with one of the first three, as I can choose the latter just by turning my head here at home.  Imagination is such a wonderful thing. And on that note ...

Happy Fashion Animal Friday to you!

Today's illustration sees a lovely location for a family portrait.  Lucky for us, we can have our sittings wherever our imagination leads us: no dodgy weather delays, no light meters and location scouting.

And speaking of luck, my Shell Sherree illustration blog has been named in the Top 100 Fashion Illustration blogs by Feedspot.  Get out of here!  Thank you to all those who stop by Chez Shell ... I've been blogging for a long time now (since 2008) and some of you have been here since the beginning.  I hope to add a bright spot and gentle respite from the daily ups and downs of life - so if I can put a smile on your dial, it makes me very happy. 

So on with our barefoot and ballgowned creation for today.  This secret garden has a stairway with clambering vines and roses that leads someplace mysterious ... destination unknown.  I wonder what Freud would make of this.  Or is it more Jung's cup of tea?  Perhaps they'll both be waiting for us upstairs.  What a party that would be.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you!

Happy Bastille Day!

Today's Paris illustration for le quatorze juillet is shamelessly stereotypical in showing off the Eiffel Tower with her curvaceous charms.  Our fashion and fluffballs trio is two parts patience vs one part impatience.  Did someone allude to celebratory snacks?  On y va!  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

Today's Paris illustration sees us taking a breather on the bank with an Eiffel Tower view after a taxing morning of flower shopping.  Assuming we're smart enough to turn around momentarily, that is.

For problems such as this, we should pray.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you !
