As Agent Violet has discovered, trench coats have their uses but you can stow all manner of useful gizmos in the voluminous sleeves of a vintage coat like this one. 

The spotted cuffs and matching pillbox in today's illustration might seem too eye-catching ~ but don't be fooled.  Violet is well versed in the art of distraction so no doubt they serve a purpose for which we can only hazard a naive guess.  After all, in Paris, one never knows when one might need to secure a surreptitious stash of brandy-laced macarons that can weaken an adversary's defences after dark.

Shall we tail her and see where she leads us ?  Let's not dilly dally, though, as she knows how to slip into a chocolatier and vanish without a trace.  On y va.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

  1. Suhweet! And as I'm listening to a John Le Carre novel on audio (perfect for the car), Agent Violet is just the thing. I'll follow her. I'm in need of an adventure.

  2. Sometimes I look at my computer screen and I sigh, and I think to myself that all I want is for my entire wardrobe to be just like that worn by the Shell Sherree heroines. Oh for, oh for, oh for that pillbox hat.

    1. Thank you, dear Mise ... I have that same wish myself. I give them all my best outfits and seem to leave myself primarily with my favourite jeans, heels and fluffy tops at my own disposal. Tsk tsk ...

  4. Oh my—if I'd had an outfit like that to stroll around in, I would have stayed in Paris instead of coming home to reality!

  5. [WARNING SHOP TALK] The fade out on the background architecture - nice touch.

    1. [WARNING SHOP TALK REPLY] I used to ink absolutely everything, PA, whereas I'm enjoying very much incorporating softer backgrounds nowadays. Much appreciated, thank you!!
