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 !

Today's Paris illustration beckons us inside this charming old Herboristerie. 

I have no idea what kind of herbals one might find inside, but this cat and French bulldog look relaxed enough to coax me into procuring a little something to help me unwind.  Shall we find a delicate rose petal tisane to brew?  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

Ruffling feathers is one thing.  Ruffling fur is entirely another.

Today's fluffy fashion illustration sees us all dressed up in Paris with somewhere to go.  Negotiating permission to leave, however, could take a little time.  Arm wrestle, anyone?  And on that note ...

Happy Fluffy Francophile Friday to you !

Fashionable Friday : Santorini Stroll Sartoriale

 Necessity is the mother of linguistic invention.

Today's illustration is set in Greece, not Italy, so I've taken poetic license for today's post title by using the Italian form of the word sartorial, that being sartoriale.  Somehow, Santorini Stroll ραπτικός just doesn't have the same ring. {And let's not ask why I didn't just stick with the English form of the word sartorial, that being sartorial.  That's way too much explaining to do.}

So come, let us hoist our geographically-appropriate Boho skirts and seek out some shade and a geographically-appropriate drink.  I think I'd like mine with a miniature umbrella, geographically-appropriate or otherwise.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !
