Weekend in Venice, anyone?   This watery-coloured scenery is long overdue Chez Shell.  My apologies and pass the prosecco, per favore.

Today's Venice illustration sees us consulting a somewhat dubious source for a palm reading.  I don't even know why, as I'll see your soothsayer and raise it by my naysayer.  I'd rather be surprised with what each day unfurls than go through life wondering how to think ahead of every predicted contingency.  I can't even plan my wardrobe the night ahead let alone the rest of it!

So come, let us hoik up our skirts or palazzo pants, perch ourselves at a Venetian vantage point and wave at the locals.  You never know who might stop along.  And on that note ...

Happy Venerdi in Venice to you!

Fashionable Friday : Barefoot and Fluffy

She looks pensive.  Or perhaps she's waiting ... for a caption.

Or wondering why she didn't paint her toenails before opting to go barefoot and ballgowned.   That's probably what I'd be wondering.  Deep, I know.  It's easier than politics, climate change and what plastic is doing to our marine life.  Way too depressing.  Sometimes I just can't adult. To our fluffy place! And on that note ...

Happy Fluffy Fashionable Friday to you !

Fashionable Friday : Promenade in Procida

5.5.17

I'm not a worldly traveller.  So the plenitude of picturesque places on Pinterest that would elicit reminiscent Oohs and Aahs of, "I've been there!" from others seldom get that response from me.  I might Ooh and Aah over how pretty they are, but as to where they were taken?  I'm mostly clueless. 

The inspiration for today's fashion illustration with its stone neutrals and touches of pink had me wondering about Capri or somewhere in those thereabouts.  A tad more research revealed it to be Procida, a wee, small island off Naples that apparently is a hidden gem, a tiny delight and a jewel box to be explored at your next opportunity.  And it turns out my geographical instincts aren't completely clueless after all !  Huzzah !

Lemonade will flavour our weekend there.  Espadrilles are standard fare, whether flat or wedge, and off-the-shoulder blouses will always be at home there. Floaty skirt or floaty pants ~ as long as the breeze billows through, it will do. And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

Francophile Friday: Shakespeare in Paris

Today's Paris illustration sees us at Shakespeare And Company, an iconic bookstore for bookworms and browsers alike.

And it's lucky we're in Paris, because we're fashionably late for the day circled on the calendar to celebrate The Bard's life and work.  23rd April marks the anniversary of the day he passed away {this much is known for sure} and possibly also the day he was born {this much: not so much}

As for our pint-sized fashionista, she's celebrating equal parts Shakespeare, Harry Potter and Gucci.  I like her style. "And though she be but little, she is fierce."  Join us for a stroll?  If the heels are too tall, slip on some slides and we're good to go.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

Even the Easter Bunny is fashionably late in Paris.

Hop on up to our perch ... we can just about see the Eiffel Tower from here !

Our cute kitty has a current fascination for gown fluffing, so no need to adjust your skirt.  She has the situation under control.  And on that note ...

Happy Fluffy Francophile Friday to you !

Furry Friends Friday : Tressage and Tiny Tots

Tressage or dressage?  Take your pick and we'll decide on wardrobe later.

Today's illustration sees us heading out for a breath of fresh air and scoring an unexpected ticklish tongue in our ear.  Bonus!  If we get our tushes into gear for an Easter egg hunt, we'll have to wake our dozing tiny tot to use the basket for the spoils.  Methinks we shall relax here a while instead.

Wishing you a safe, happy and peaceful weekend.  No matter what one's faith may be, life and loved ones are always celebration-worthy. And on that note ...

Happy Furry Friends Friday to you !

Francophile Friday : Pâtisserie Pairs

I seem to have a thing for pairs at the moment.  If I was a poker player, I don't know if that's good or bad.  So it's lucky I'm not a poker player. 

Today's illustration takes a long overdue reconnaissance mission of Paris pâtisseries.  This one's window display might not quite get a tick of approval from the health inspectors but it gets a big, fat, fluffy tick for being fetching ... especially if those pooches get a whiff.

So come, let us pull on our coats, defy our legs' goosebumps and ready our choices.  This particular establishment looks tilted to the divinity of the chocolate and salted caramel persuasion.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!
