Venerdi in Venice: Flirting with Lilac Frills


{Lilac Frills in Venice : ink pen, pencil, watercolour illustration by Shell-Sherree}

Ciao!  Patience is a virtue ~ and Saints preserve us, thank heavens I have some very virtuous Venice-loving souls amongst you. {Bless your fuzzy loyal hearts!} 

It's a glorious day for lilac frills and the clink of glasses lending a splish-splash of prosecco to echo the lapping canal below.  Let us twirl.  And on that note ...

Happy Venerdi in Venice to you!

Francophile Friday: Et Tutu, Repetto


{Et Tutu Repetto Paris : ink pen and watercolour illustration by Shell-Sherree}

When I was little, like most young ladies, I daydreamed of wearing a tutu {and still do!}  The dancing side of it ~ hmmm, not so sure of.  My sister and I had a short-lived flirtation with some dance classes but I'm hazy on the details aside from using the back of a dining chair as a practice barre ~ and not often enough to continue on with the classes.  {Fair enough and probably a wise move ... though I'd never have been rejected for being too tall.}

A little something from Repetto in Paris for a fancy dress occasion would be a gorgeous way to see those tutu daydreams through. Their exquisite window displays are more than enough reason to press your nose to the glass ~ and today's illustration was inspired by this one.  

If a street-wear take on the tutu is more your cup of tea, may I suggest this with your tank top colour of choice.  {And possibly an extra foot in height ~ fortunately for me, what I lack in ballet genes, I make up for in those of the high heel variety!}  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

PS:  Time is nebulous Chez Shell Sherree.  Friday ... Sunday ... let's not concern ourselves with such minor details ...
